The Holocaust Educational Trust and Community Security Trust have launched ‘Lessons learned? Reflections on antisemitism and the Holocaust’
With antisemitism having risen by eleven per cent last year and with antisemitic discourse - including shocking Holocaust imagery and language - also on the rise the Holocaust Educational Trust and Community Security Trust have launched ‘Lessons learned? Reflections on antisemitism and the Holocaust’, a booklet featuring a series of essays by prominent civic, political and faith leaders from across the world.
Available for free download the booklet is a demonstration that tackling antisemitism is a cause for the many, and not the few. Antisemitism is an age-old scourge that shifts shape and form to suit its surroundings - a scourge that culminated in the almost complete annihilation of the Jewish people during the Holocaust.
In the foreword to the booklet, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust Karen Pollock MBE, and Chief Executive of the CST, David Delew, jointly commented:
“Our responsibility is to ceaselessly challenge the antisemitic worldview that still persists. Action is always stronger than words and our duty is to act.
“It may not happen quickly, it may not always be a smooth downward curve until antisemitism is thrown into the gutter of history. But we will fight on. And with the support of individuals like the contributors in this collection, there is reason to hope.”
