Hate debate: A still from the six-minute film Edek

A short film has been published to educate young people about hate and hate crimes.

Entitled Edek, it has been commissioned by the National Holocaust Centre and Museum in response to official figures showing a 40 per cent rise in religious hate crimes since 2017.

The six-minute film features 86-year-old Holocaust survivor Janine Webber, who tells the heartbreaking and courageous story of the man who risked his life to hide Janine, her aunt, her uncle and 12 other Jews for over a year from the Nazis during the Second World War.

The film reminds us of the bravery and humanity required in standing up to intolerance and hatred – whatever your religion or ethnicity.

Viewers are encouraged to stand up and act, by sharing the film and supporting its message across social media, using the hash tag #edek.

The National Holocaust Centre and Museum in Nottinghamshire is dedicated to Holocaust remembrance and education in the UK. It promotes an understanding of discrimination and prejudice and runs an extensive outreach education programme across England
