An agreement between the LDS church and the American Gathering of Jewish Holocaust Survivors "over the issue of posthumous baptisms of Jewish Holocaust victims." The First Presidency agrees to "remove from the next issue of the International Genealogical Index [public-access record only] names of all known postumously baptized Jewish holocaust victims," and "to discontinue any further baptisms of deceased Jews, including all lists of Jewish Holocaust victims who are known Jews, except if they were direct ancestors of living members of the Church."
