Our Mission

The European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation is an international NGO, established in October 2008, on the initiative of Moshe Kantor, Aleksander Kwaśniewski and Vaclav Havel. The idea of the Council dates back to the International Stockholm Forum on the Holocaust organized by the Swedish government on the 26-28 January 2000, which emphasized that the whole international community shares a solemn responsibility to fight such evils as extremism, racism, antisemitism and xenophobia.
