The Montreal Holocaust Museum takes a public stand in response to current issues of respect for diversity.

Through its public position, the Museum furthers the mission it was given in 1979 by the Holocaust survivors who founded it. The Museum implements actions, events, and programs to sensitise decision-makers and the public. With its unique expertise, it acts on issues of human rights, antisemitism, racism, hatred and indifference.
