{{#invoke:redirect hatnote|redirect}} The World Holocaust Forum (also World Forum “Let My People Live!”) is a series of high-profile events targeted at preserving memories of Holocaust atrocities and the other tragic events of World War II. In order to organise and support the World Forum, a special foundation was established in 2005 under the chairmanship of Viatcheslav Moshe Kantor, President of the European Jewish Congress and Chair of the Forum’s Organising Committee.

Four World Forums have already been held. The First World Forum “Let My People Live!” was held in 2005 in Kraków (Poland) to mark 60 years since the liberation of the concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. The First Forum was attended by over 20 official delegations led by their heads of state, among them President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, President of Israel Moshe Katsav, President of Poland Aleksander Kwaśniewski, and Vice President of the United States of America Richard Cheney. The first World Forum received widespread media coverage.<ref>Declaration of the First World Forum “Let My People Live!”, Krakow, January 27, 2005</ref><ref>New York Times, 27.01.2005</ref>
