Young people across the UK have been invited by the Holocaust Commission to enter a competition to become a youth advisor to help them advise the Government how the UK should preserve the memories and lessons of the Holocaust.
There are six places up for grabs at a Downing Street forum for the best essays from the age categories, 21 years old and under; 18 years old and under; and 16 years old and under. One overall winner will be chosen by Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel to join the Commission, feeding in the views from the forum, and helping to decide the final recommendations to the Prime Minister.
Young people can enter the competition by writing an essay on the title:
‘Why is it so important that we remember the Holocaust and how can we make sure future generations never forget?’
The closing date for the competition is 30 May 2014. Find out more and enter the competition.
