Holocaust & Anti-Racism Education Department

The aim of the Holocaust and Anti-Racism Education Department is to fight prejudice and bigotry through education.

Although the Holocaust stands as the central issue of modern Jewish history, the Department's role is to emphasise its continuing and inescapable relevance for humanity as a whole. To this end the Department runs pioneering and influential educational programmes in the UK, and also - under the auspices of the International Task Force for Holocaust Education - in Eastern Europe and in China. The Department also acts as an advisor on issues related to the Holocaust and racism for many organisations including the BBC.

In 2011 the LJCC launched www.theholocaustexplained.org, a Holocaust education website for secondary school children.
