CIDI – Center for Information and Documentation Israel
The Center for Information and Documentation Israel (CIDI), founded in 1974, is the Netherlands’ leading organization dedicated to combating antisemitism and spreading awareness of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. CIDI’s mission is to safeguard the Jewish people’s right to a peaceful and secure existence, in Israel and around the world.
Since 1984, CIDI has published an annual report on antisemitic incidents in the Netherlands. The Monitor Antisemitic Incidents is a valuable source of information for policy makers, academics, and journalists. We publish a long English summary of the reports.
CIDI shares its expert opinions on issues related to Israel and antisemitism in Dutch media and in parliamentary hearings. CIDI organizes fact finding missions to Israel for politicians, journalists, and opinion leaders. Moreover, CIDI has taken over 300 high school history teachers to the Yad Vashem Holocaust museum in Jerusalem for a Seminar on Holocaust Education, to ensure that the history of the Holocaust will be taught even when no survivors will be alive.
CIDI frequently organizes lectures and conferences with speakers from the Netherlands and abroad. CIDI events have included speakers such as Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, former CIA Director R. James Woolsey, Israeli President Shimon Peres, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
In times of Corona we organise many on-line events, often in English. Many of them have been recorded.
CIDI is an independent foundation registered at the Dutch Chamber of Commerce, and does not receive funding from any government.
