SUPPORT EFFORTS TO REMEMBER, EDUCATE ON, AND UNDERSTAND THE HOLOCAUST, TO CONFRONT THOSE WHO SEEK TO DENY OR DOWNPLAY IT, AND TO STRIVE TO PREVENT ANY FURTHER GENOCIDE.

 
 

The uniqueness of the state-sponsored industrial scale of the Holocaust should be recognised, and the use of language that belittles it – and not only Holocaust denial – should be recognised as a form of antisemitism

 

With each passing year fewer Holocaust survivors are left to describe their first-hand experiences. It is therefore important to educate current and future generations by recording their testimonies and preserving documents and artefacts that illustrate the horrors perpetrated against Jews, Romani people, LGBT+ people, disabled people, and all the other victims of Nazi persecution. Mobilising the general public against genocide now and in the future is a critical bulwark against such atrocities. But this is only possible if the lessons of the Holocaust are widely known and understood.

 

We are grateful to the Scottish Government for their support of the Lessons from Auschwitz programme. We ask that funding continues for a Scottish regional outreach worker for the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust.
