The website has been created to present and discuss initiatives aimaed to promote and raise awareness about the Holocaust in the region of Southeast Asia. Southeast Asia is a region with a rapidly growing population. It has its own tragic experiences of the Second World War as well as other conflicts and instances of genocide, but awareness of the Holocaust is scarce, and this provides fertile ground for distortion and even denial. Through our initiative, we want to combat Holocaust distortion in its various forms, but also inspire critical memory discourses regarding local histories of conflicts and atrocities, prevent genocide, as well as promote culture of peace and human rights.
This website was developed by the NEVER AGAIN Association and its partners and colleagues in the region of Southeast Asia. The NEVER AGAIN Association was established to commemorate the Holocaust and to deal with contemporary issues of diversity and tolerance in Poland and internationally in 1996. It has campaigned against antisemitism, racism, and xenophobia, for peace, intercultural dialogue, and human rights. It monitors and registers hate crimes and hate speech, including instances of antisemitism and Holocaust denial, among other activities.The wide-ranging activity of the organisation has achieved broad national and international recognition. We have received personal endorsements from heroes such as Jan Karski, Marek Edelman, Simon Wiesenthal as well as from contemporary figures such as Barack Obama and Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, among others.
This website has been supported by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) and Heinrich Böll Stiftung Cambodia.
