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 an increased number of antisemitic incidents in 2018, Karen Pollock MBE, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, said:

 “In 2018, the most antisemitic year since records began, almost a third of all incidents involved discourse based on the Nazis, including swastikas and references to the Holocaust; a 7% increase on 2017.

These concerning figures make the mission of the Holocaust Educational Trust more important than ever before, as we educate people from every background about the Holocaust and its contemporary relevance. We must recommit to ensuring that antisemitism has no place in modern society.”
