Holocaust Educational Trust at Party fringe meetings

    The Holocaust Educational Trust ran three fringe meetings at this year’s party conferences exploring the influence of the internet and social media on the Holocaust.

    Recognising the problem of teaching the Holocaust as survivors die, the HET assembled three panels to discuss role models, fictional depictions of the Shoah, football, radio and television.

    Taking part at the LibDem conference in Brighton were Rob Blackie, MD of Blue State Digital Europe, MP Stephen Williams who has campaigned to prevent the sale of Holocaust-related items, and Ivor Baddiel, writer of The Y Word, a study of antisemitism in football.

    In Manchester for the Labour conference were Shadow Defence Secretary Jim Murphy MP and Nick Lowles, co-ordinator of the anti-racism group Hope not Hate; while at the Tory conference in Birmingham, Football Association chairman David Bernstein, and Sajid Javid MP, Economic Secretary to the Treasury, discussed the impact of the England football team’s visit to Auschwitz.
