Education Programme

The AJR is committed to ensuring that future generations are informed about the events their members witnessed during the Second World War and the dangers of intolerance, racism and xenophobia.

As well as our own educational projects (Refugee Voices and Continental Britons), the AJR has given grants to institutions that provide materials, support and guidance with the formal teaching of the Holocaust in schools, colleges and universities. We have also made charitable grants to organisations that create commemorative programmes and exhibitions, including events to mark Yom HaShoah and Holocaust Memorial Day.

In the past the AJR has supported, amongst other institutions, the Wiener Library, The Holocaust Centre (Beth Shalom), the Jewish Free School and the Anne Frank Trust.

The AJR is also a member of the UK delegation to the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA), which brings together governments and non-governmental organisations to raise awareness of the Holocaust and place political and social leaders' support behind the need for Holocaust education, remembrance, and research both nationally and internationally.
