(Revised February 27, 1996)
The way to combat noxious ideas is with other ideas.
The way to combat falsehoods is with truth.
Justice William O. Douglas
1958 interview with Mike Wallace
In contrast to our ideological opponents, the Nizkor Project has a
completely open and visible agenda. We enumerate our goals below, in no
- To monitor the falsehoods, half-truths, and misinformation
distributed via the Internet and other media by individuals and
organizations that are fascist (including Nazi or neo-Nazi), racist,
antisemitic, and/or that dishonestly and/or flagrantly reject
established historical fact about the Nazi Holocaust;
- to refute or otherwise reply to those falsehoods, half-truths,
and misinformation, with the aim of ensuring that they and their
proponents remain firmly in the margin;
- to encourage, assist, and engage in such refutation by sponsoring
and organizing collaborative research and writing efforts of both
amateurs and experts around the world, including but not limited to
historians, war-crimes prosecutors, lawyers, and witnesses, and/or to
distribute such refutation;
- to encourage a critical and skeptical awareness of history,
science, and the acquisition of human knowledge generally, so as to
foster a frame of mind which recognizes such falsehoods, half-truths,
and misinformation for what they are;
- to seek, solicit, and archive, for worldwide electronic access
free of charge, material that deals with the phenomenon and history of
hate, especially the Nazi Holocaust, material that documents and exposes
such hate, and nonviolent methods and tools for combating such hate;
- to attempt to buttress democratic institutions against the
campaign of destruction and disinformation being waged by hatemongers in
electronic forums, principally on the Internet;
- to provide teachers, from grade schools through universities,
with curricula to bolster democratic, multicultural, and multiracial
- to speak to or otherwise educate students, teachers, fraternal
organizations, church groups, police forces, and any other interested
groups, about the propaganda campaigns of racist and antidemocratic
individuals and organizations conducted through computer networks, and
about which nonviolent methods and tools are effective and ineffective
in combating them.
