Consultation description

The Prime Minister’s Commission on the Holocaust is a national, cross-party commission representing our whole society. It has been established to investigate whether further measures should be taken to ensure Britain has a permanent and fitting memorial and meaningful educational resources for generations to come.

Many organisations and individuals have worked tirelessly to ensure the memory of the Holocaust remains alive and its lessons continue to resonate today. Survivors have played a crucial role by sharing their testimony. But we will not always have survivors with us and there is a danger that, as the events of the Holocaust become ever more distant, they will feel increasingly remote to current and future generations.

The commission is asking for written evidence. From this evidence, 2 expert groups focusing on education and commemoration will review current provision and identify gaps and opportunities for the future.
