HET Newsletter - July 2018

Read more about the about the recent royal visit to Yad Vashem and our Ambassador Conference.

We were all moved to see His Royal Highness, the Duke of Cambridge, visiting Yad Vashem in Israel. Seeing the future King lay a wreath in memory of the murdered Jews of Europe at Israel's national Holocaust memorial sent a powerful message. You can read my reflections on the visit here.

His Royal Highness said:
"I am well aware that the responsibility falls now to my generation, to keep the memory alive... And I commit myself to doing this."

We could not agree more - the next generation must keep the memory alive.

Through our work we educate the next generation all year round. Just last week we were so proud to see hundreds of young people gathered for our annual Ambassador Conference - they came together to learn about the past, and to stand up against Holocaust denial, antisemitism and prejudice today and in the future.


We welcomed an array of distinguished and fascinating speakers: author and illustrator Judith Kerr OBE reflected on her experience as a refugee fleeing Nazi Germany, Marlon Solomon performed a unique show about conspiracy theories and fake news, and Professor Deborah Lipstadt gave the keynote lecture. Click on the video below to watch her lecture.

Ambassadors at the Conference learnt, remembered and committed to being part of the effort to defend the truth. Each of them made a pledge to use their voice to preserve the memory of the Holocaust.

Join our Ambassadors and pledge your commitment to defending the truth of the past.

  1. Use social media. Pledge your commitment to defend the truth and tell people why you will use your voice to challenge Holocaust denial and antisemitism. Don't forget to include #HearMyVoice!
  2. Share this email. Let your friends and family know how they can get involved.
  3. Donate. Help us continue to educate young people across the UK about the Holocaust and its lessons.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

With best wishes,

KP Sig
