The Problem

After the Holocaust the world said ‘Never Again’. Unfortunately, since then, the world has forgotten again, again and again. Genocides in Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda and then Darfur have shown that the world has not learned.  In addition to this, young people’s understanding about genocide, crimes against humanity and other mass atrocities is not good. We hope to change that through our project and hope that you can support us along the way.

The Project

The aim of our project is to raise awareness of the Holocaust and other genocides in our school and beyond. We want to make sure that every student knows about the experiences of survivors who we have met and understand why genocides happen. By doing so we hope to prevent genocides, crimes against humanity and other mass atrocities from happening again. We want to use our website to show that young people really care about these issues, engage with them purposively and truly can make a difference. It would be brilliant if our website was also useful to teachers and students in other schools to raise awareness.

The People

We are a small group of students who are committed to raising awareness of the Holocaust and other genocides. As volunteers we work in our spare time to research the issues, speak with experts and meet with remarkable survivors. Our main aim is to help others understand the scourge of genocide and other identity crimes…and we hope that we can make a difference.

Meet the team

We’re only a small committed group at the moment and we’d love it if other students from schools around the country would like to join us! It is so crucial that young people work together to raise awareness of the Holocaust and other genocides if we are to stop these dreadful atrocities from happening again. We want to use our website to show that young people really care about these issues, engage with them purposively and truly can make a difference.
