The prime minister has showed his continuing support for Holocaust education by signing the Anne Frank Declaration at 10 Downing Street.
The declaration was written by the Anne Frank Trust UK in 1998 and seeks to remind us what can happen when prejudice and hatred go unchallenged.
Speaking at the annual Downing Street Chanukah reception, prime minister David Cameron said: “We will go on doing everything we can, with the Anne Frank Trust and others, to fight prejudice and discrimination and persecution in our country”.
Since 1998, the Anne Frank Declaration has been signed up to by world leaders including the late South African president Nelson Mandela, former UN secretary general Kofi Annan, and former US president Bill Clinton.
