Holocaust Educational Trust – Wikipedia

The Holocaust Educational Trust (HET) is a British charity, based in London, whose aim is to “educate young people of every background about the Holocaust and the important lessons to be learned for today.”[1] It was founded by the Labour MP Greville Janner and the former Labour Home Secretary Merlyn Rees in 1988. One of the Trust’s main achievements was ensuring that the Holocaust formed part of the National Curriculum for history, as it continues to do so.

Holocaust Memorial Day

The most public form of Holocaust education is the annual commemoration of Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD). The day is marked on 27th January each year – the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz – and was first held in 2001. Britain was one of the first countries in the world to hold such an event.
