About the organization

In recent years, there has been a noticeable increase in the number of interethnic and interreligious conflicts all over the world. The number and scale of activity of radical groups are increasing. The positions of right-wing radicalism, using the exacerbation of social contradictions against the background of the migration crisis and the globalization of the world economy, as well as the ideological vacuum that arose after the collapse of communist ideology, are strengthening from year to year.

The manifestations of right-wing radicalism are completely different - from religious extremist fundamentalism and secular ultranationalism to militant revanchism, which aims to revise the results of World War II.

These social trends merge with the policies of individual countries aimed at revising the history of the twentieth century, glorifying Nazism and imposing equal responsibility for the beginning of the war, both on Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, in order to whitewash their own collaborators of that time.

Countries pursuing such a policy provide at least covert support to the ultranationalist forces in Eastern Europe, which are increasingly acquiring the features of neo-Nazi formations.

The current situation has led to the growing concern among some politicians and public figures about these processes. Recently, in various countries of the world, non-governmental organizations have emerged with the goal of combating Nazism and its manifestations.

A struggle is being waged against these organizations in a number of states aimed at discrediting them and weakening their social and political influence.

The international human rights movement "World without Nazism" (MBN) was created at the initiative of a number of anti-Nazi organizations from the countries of the former USSR, the EU, as well as the United States and Israel in response to numerous facts testifying to the growth of extremist manifestations and attempts to revise the results of World War II , the glorification of Nazi criminals and collaborators in Eastern Europe.

On June 22, 2010, the founding conference of the International Human Rights Movement ”World without Nazism” was held in Kiev, which was attended by 360 delegates from 136 organizations from 28 countries of the world, including Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Finland, Poland, the Baltic countries, Israel, Germany, Italy, USA, etc.

The new organization set itself the following goals:

  1. Creation of conditions for interaction and dialogue of various anti-Nazi organizations, giving a new dimension to the world anti-fascist movement, including Russia.
  2. Consolidation of the international community in support of the relevance and enduring importance of the verdict of the Nuremberg Tribunal, which condemned Nazism.
  3. Promoting denazification in those countries of Central and Eastern Europe where it was not carried out in the post-war years or in which it was recognized as erroneous after the collapse of the USSR and the Soviet bloc.
  4. Countering the glorification of Nazism, Nazi criminals and their accomplices, countering the revision of the history of World War II and the spread of Nazi ideology.
  5. Countering Holocaust Denial.
  6. Protection of the rights of national, religious and cultural minorities.

In this regard, the main tasks of the new organization are:

  1. Interaction with international and European political and judicial structures on countering Nazism.
  2. Propaganda and dissemination of the values of anti-Nazism, activation of the discussion of topical international issues on problems related to the distortion of history, the glorification of Nazi accomplices and collaborators.
  3. Monitoring neo-Nazism - collecting and processing information from the field, distributing it to the general public, as well as submitting special reports to international organizations (PACE, OSCE, etc.)
  4. Political initiation of the denazification process in the states of Eastern Europe.
  5. Intro duce mandatory standards for teaching the history of the Second World War and the Holocaust into the education system of the member states of the Council of Europe.
  6. Analysis of the international practice of combating Nazism and the widespread dissemination of this experience to other countries of the world.
  7. The spread of anti-fascist ideology in the newly independent states, discrediting and weakening of political forces in the West, promoting the concept of imposing equal responsibility for unleashing the Second World War on Nazi Germany and the USSR.
  8. Providing legal opposition to radical and neo-Nazi forces in European and international courts, including filing claims with the European Court of Human Rights, submitting materials on behalf of the new movement to the OSCE and the Council of Europe.

At the moment, the MPD "World without Nazism" (MBN) includes 137 organizations from 28 countries of the world. There are 8 regional offices, empowered human rights commissioners of the World Without Nazism, endowed with broad powers.

Since 2012, the organization has carried out a number of activities aimed at combating the revival of neo-Nazism in the world, as well as fighting right-wing radicalism. These were monitoring of manifestations of neo-Nazism and right-wing extremism, which grew into three volumes of the "White Book of Nazism" - a collection of evidence of these facts in 22 countries of the world; these were educational programs in the schools of the organization's member countries, it was support for programs in the field of Holocaust study, a program to support human rights defenders advocating for minority rights around the world, these were annual conferences in support of national and religious minorities, against the glorification of Nazism, etc. etc.

The movement continues to operate despite the problems associated with the opposition of the right-wing radical forces and the governments of those countries whose agenda is increasingly taking on a right-wing radical character. Members of the movement are determined to uphold their ideals and fight against manifestations of aggressive nationalism and neo-Nazism around the world.
