HET Newsletter - September 2018

Our newspapers and TV screens are filled with headlines about antisemitism and hate and we are yet again reminded why it is our duty to speak out, defend the truth of the past and fight prejudice today.

For 30 years our aim has been to educate all people, from all backgrounds about the history of the Holocaust and the important lessons to be learned for today. The relevance of these lessons has never been more obvious or important. Our work is more vital than ever and we can only do it with your support. You can donate here.

As we start the Jewish New Year, let us hope that these new beginnings bring a peaceful and calm year for all our teachers, Ambassadors, friends and supporters.

With best wishes,

Karen Pollock MBE
