Croatian Prime Minister appoints special advisor for combating antisemitism

Sara Lustig, daughter of the late Croatian-Jewish producer Branko Lustig, was recently appointed as a special advisor to Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković.

Lustig- political consultant and lawyer who was educated in New York and London – will serve as an adviser for Holocaust issues and ways to combat antisemitism.

Lustig worked in the past as an advisor to then-minister of foreign and European affairs Vesna Pusić and later became an adviser to former president of Croatia Kolinda Grabar Kitarović.

For the past year, Lustig has been deputy head of the Croatian delegation to IHRA, the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance, after it was decided in 2020 that Croatia will take over the IHRA presidency in 2023.

Croatia was the first IHRA member state to translate and publish the IHRA recommendations on learning and teaching about the Holocaust into its own language and present them on a national level.
