The UN General Assembly passed a resolution sponsored by Israel that condemned Holocaust denial. The resolution also encouraged all countries and social media platforms to take proactive steps to fight antisemitism and Holocaust denial or distortion. The United Nations maintains a Holocaust education program, and UNESCO has a program to prevent anti-Semitism.

Holocaust denial is an antisemitic conspiracy concept that claims the Holocaust, or the Nazi extermination of Jews, was a hoax or invention.

The United Nations General Assembly is one of the United Nations (UN) six primary institutions, acting as the UN's main deliberative, policymaking, and representational organ. The powers, composition, functions, and processes of the United Nations are outlined in Chapter IV of the United Nations Charter. The UNGA is in charge of the UN budget, appointing non-permanent members to the Security Council, selecting the UN Secretary-General, reviewing reports from various elements of the UN system, and adopting decisions through resolutions. It also creates a slew of subsidiary entities to help it carry out its extensive mandate. The UNGA is the only UN entity in which all member nations are represented equally.
