This working paper contribution addresses the lack of formal recognition of the Holocaust and institutionalised killing in the European Convention on Human Rights. It focuses on three themes: 1) historical justice and the role of the courts; 2) memory mediated through the judicial route; and 3) the specific legacy of Auschwitz in Europe and the human rights response.
