The Prince of Wales has said he is “moved and forever changed” by the testimonies of survivors.

In an Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) message, Prince Charles, patron of the HMD Trust, said the theme for this year’s commemoration, One Day, “calls on us to remember momentous days in our own lives, or in times gone by, which have impacted the arc of history, either for good or for ill.

“It reminds us how quickly life can change, and that though we know much, we will forever live with the uncertainty of not knowing what tomorrow may bring.” He added: “The strength shown by the survivors of the Holocaust, and of more recent genocides, is as courageous as it is inspiring.

“Like anyone who hears them bear witness on Holocaust Memorial Day, I am always moved and forever changed by their testimony.”
