Last Chance to Have Your Say - The Prime Minister’s Holocaust Commission 
The Prime Minister’s Holocaust Commission want your views on the future of Holocaust education and commemoration. The cross-party, national Commission on the Holocaust was launched by the Prime Minister in January to investigate what more needs to be done to ensure Britain has a permanent and fitting memorial to the Holocaust, as well as the educational resources we need for generations to come.

The Holocaust Commission is dedicated to keeping their memory alive and the views of the Jewish community are integral to the recommendations which will be presented to the Prime Minister later this year.

The deadline to have your say is Friday 30th May - click here or write to The Holocaust Commission, PO Box 72270, London, SW1P 9WU.

Wishing you a Shabbat Shalom.
