The U.S. State Department awarded $200,000 grants each to the Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI, and the Central Europe Center for Research and Documentation, known as Centropa.

The grants, from the State Department’s Office of International Religious Freedom in the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, were announced last week.

MEMRI, a Washington-based group that translates and researches anti-Semitic trends in the Middle East and South Asia, was awarded the grant to document and translate anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial in the Middle East.

Centropa, a Vienna-based organization that uses technology and interactive social media to teach about the Holocaust in Hungary, Lithuania and Poland, was given the grant for Holocaust education programs.
