For more than a decade, the Kantor Center team has published, on the eve of Holocaust Memorial Day in Israel, annual reports on the state of antisemitism in the world. However, along with alarming incidents and trends, there are many encouraging developments in the fight against antisemitism and other forms of racially and religiously charged radicalization. Some go almost unnoticed.

Thus, as of this year, the Kantor Center is proud to publish also a “positive trends” report on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which marks the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp in 1945. The report analyzes some of the year’s most important encouraging developments in the fight against antisemitism and radicalization, and offers policy recommendations on how to make specific campaigns even more effective. The report is the product of a six-month team effort by eight academic experts from Tel Aviv University and beyond it. It is presented to the President of the State of Israel, H.E. Isaac Herzog, and to leading policymakers and activists around the world. We hope it will make a difference.
