To mark Holocaust Memorial Day, The Duchess of Cambridge spoke today to Holocaust survivors and youth ambassadors from the Holocaust Educational Trust via video call.
With Holocaust survivors Zigi Shipper and Manfred Goldberg, who The Duke and Duchess met at Stutthof in 2017, and youth ambassadors from the Holocaust Educational Trust, The Duchess discussed the importance of remembering the atrocities committed during the Holocaust, and of championing younger generations to ensure that the stories of survivors continue to be shared into the future.
A moved Duchess of Cambridge said: “The stories you have shared with me, and your dedication in educating the younger generation about your experiences and the horrors of the Holocaust shows extreme strength and such bravery.”
The Duchess added on Twitter: “We all have a role to play to ensure the experiences of Holocaust survivors like Zigi and Manfred are never forgotten.”
