Karen Pollock MBE reacts to news of antisemitic attack on Elie Wiesel's childhood home

Reacting to the news of the antisemitic attack on Elie Wiesel’s childhood home, Karen Pollock MBE, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, said:

"Elie Wiesel, who survived unimaginable horrors during the Holocaust, dedicated his life to ensuring the world understood the truth of the past and the darkest depths of the Holocaust.

“This appalling antisemitic attack is abhorrent and grotesque. It reminds us that we are witnessing a dangerous normalisation of antisemitism across Europe and we must all remain vigilant and speak out wherever we see it.

“At the Holocaust Educational Trust, we work every day to continue Elie’s legacy of educating about the Holocaust and its relevance today, so that it is never forgotten. This horrendous attack reminds us how important our mission still remains.”
