Karen Pollock MBE's response to the latest CST report on antisemitic incidents

Commenting on the news that the Community Security Trust has today reported a record number of antisemitic incidents in the first half of 2017, Karen Pollock MBE, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, said:

“It is extremely concerning that the first six months of 2017 saw a record number of antisemitic hate incidents in the UK, as reported by the CST today. We have seen where antisemitism can ultimately lead if left unchecked and, in an increasingly fragile world, it is more important than ever that this hatred is never tolerated. This report reinforces our belief that education about the past is more crucial than ever.”
