The Prince of Wales to join a conversation with young people and Holocaust survivors at the
Western Marble Arch Synagogue, London

Thursday 29th February 2024

The Prince of Wales will visit the Western Marble Arch Synagogue on Thursday 29th February where he will join a conversation with young Ambassadors of the Holocaust Educational Trust who are advocates against hatred and antisemitism.

In the context of considerable increase in antisemitism in the UK and worldwide, His Royal Highness will hear how organisations like the Holocaust Educational Trust are delivering programmes to tackle hatred and encourage cross community cohesion.

Upon arrival, the Prince will receive an overview of the Western Marble Arch Synagogue and the Jewish community it supports. The Prince will then meet Holocaust survivors who will reflect on their experiences.

Finally, His Royal Highness will meet a number of young ambassadors from all backgrounds who have taken part in the Holocaust Educational Trust’s flagship ‘Lessons from Auschwitz’. Through the project, young people from across the UK learn the history of the Holocaust and visit the site of the former Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. Having seen where antisemitism can lead, they are powerful advocates for ensuring that hatred is called out, wherever it is found. In the final stage of the project, participants commit to share what they have learnt with their communities and become ambassadors, joining thousands of others across the UK. His Royal Highness will hear about what the young people have learned through the project and how as ambassadors, they are sharing the lessons from the past with their peers and wider communities.
