Education Programme

The AJR is committed to ensuring that future generations can have access to resources that teach about the experiences of their members and the events they witnessed during the Second World War as well as the dangers of anti-Semitism, intolerance, racism and xenophobia.

As well as our own projects (Refugee Voices and Continental Britons), the AJR provides grants to institutions that develop materials and offer 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 National Holocaust Centre (Beth Shalom), JFS 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.
