Abstract (Document Summary)

Joining [Denis Avey] at the Downing Street meeting was survivor Ben Helfgott, MBE; Lord Janner, chairman of the Holocaust Educational Trust, and two non-Jewish Holocaust Educational Trust student ambassadors from Overton Grange School in Sutton, South London, who have participated in the government-funded Lessons from Auschwitz Project, which has taken over 5,000 students and teachers from across the UK to Auschwitz-Birkenau during the past 10 years.

"Denis Avey is a hero," Lord Janner said. "He risked tremendous personal danger at Auschwitz to learn exactly what went on in that terrible place, and at the Holocaust Educational Trust we work to ensure that his efforts were not in vain - and that all young people learn about, remember and pass on to others the lessons of the horrors of the Holocaust."

The Holocaust Educational Trust hopes Holocaust Memorial Day 2010, under the theme "The Legacy of Hope," "challenges us to make the experience and words of the victims and survivors of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides a meaningful part of our future, and use their example to inspire positive action."
