Karen Pollock MBE comments on latest polling on antisemitism and Holocaust knowledge in Europe

Commenting on today’s CNN coverage of polling by ComRes on antisemitism and knowledge of the Holocaust across Europe, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, Karen Pollock MBE comments:

“This latest polling confirms a worrying increase in the number of people who believe traditional antisemitic tropes or hold antisemitic views, as well as a disappointing lack of knowledge about the Holocaust. 

“We know that education is key to combating hatred and intolerance, as well as ensuring that each generation knows about the Holocaust, a defining episode in history.

“Survivors like Susan Pollack MBE do an incredible job of sharing their testimonies, but they cannot do this forever. So, we will redouble our efforts to make sure that her story, along with all other survivors and the victims of the Holocaust, lives on and continue to educate where hate can ultimately lead.”
