Prime Minister’s Commission
On 27th January, Prime Minister David Cameron launched a National Commission to investigate possible further measures for Holocaust remembrance and education in the UK. The National Commission is currently calling on people to provide evidence. We encourage all of our supporters to submit evidence by following this link: https://engage.number10.gov.uk/contact-the-holocaust-commission/
Furthermore 6 places are up for grabs to join a youth forum set up by the Prime Minister’s Holocaust Commission with 1 person having the chance to sit on the commission. The commission is looking at ensuring there is a permanent and fitting memorial to the Holocaust and educational resources for future generations. If you are 21 or under, you can enter by writing an essay answering the question ‘Why is it so important that we remember the Holocaust and how can we make sure future generations never forget?’ The closing date of the competition is Friday 30 May 2014.
