ICMEMO is now ICMEMOHRI Focus
The Board is pleased to announce that the new name of our International Committee has been approved by the Executive Board of ICOM!
ICMEMO was founded in 2001 to foster a responsible memory of history in the interests of peace, remembrance, and reflection through commemorating the victims of State, socially determined, and ideologically motivated crimes. On March 26, 2023 by an overwhelming majority, ICMEMO members voted for a step forward.
In a world where democratic values are being forsaken and oppression is a daily occurrence and in recognition of the violation of human rights as a precursor to crimes against humanity, ICMEMO, the International Committee of Memorial Museums in Remembrance of the Victims of Public Crimes, is now:
The International Committee of Memorial and Human Rights Museums
