Washington D.C. - (PanOrient News) The U.S. Department of State said it has awarded a $200,000 grant to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) to conduct a project that documents "anti-Semitism, Holocaust denial and Holocaust glorification" in the Middle East.

This grant, awarded by the U.S Department's Office of International Religious Freedom in the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, will enable MEMRI to expand its efforts to monitor the media, translate materials into ten languages, analyze trends in anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial and glorification, and increase distribution of materials through its website and other outlets, it said.

Through translations and research, MEMRI aims to inform and educate journalists, government leaders, academia, and the general public about trends in anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial in the Middle East and South Asia, thus generating awareness and response to these issues.

MEMRI is a non-governmental organization based in Washington, DC, whose research is translated into ten languages: English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, and Hebrew.
