The Iraq Memory Foundation notes that: "In order to have a future, and lay the foundations of justice for the future, the people of Iraq must come to terms with the atrocities perpetrated in their name during three decades of Ba’thist rule. The ultimate rationale behind the Iraq Memory Foundation is that the truth can help heal a society that has been politically brutalized on a large scale." [1]

"The Iraq Memory Foundation plans to house in a single newly designed and carefully chosen site in central Baghdad the following ongoing projects: [2]

  • A Documentation Project
  • An Oral Histoy Project
  • A Museum of Remembrance
  • A Public Outreach Program
  • A Reseach Program
  • A Liaison and Coordinating Center
  • Placing the Iraqi Experience

In 2004, they received a $45,000 grant from the National Endowment for Democracy. [3]

Listed as a partner organization of the International Center for Transitional Justice.
