There is an ever-growing need to show that we are all bound together by a common humanity.

Learning from the Righteous is an educational charity that uses the stories of acts of rescue and resistance by non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust, The Righteous Among The Nations, to inspire children between 10 and 14 from a range of religious and cultural backgrounds to make a positive impact on the world they live in.

OUR MISSION is to promote respect and mutual understanding by:

  • Broadening children’s knowledge of the Holocaust in a fact-based, age-appropriate way

  • Supporting teachers with training programmes

  • Using examples of “the righteous” to demonstrate our shared humanity

  • Celebrating the “courage of the few” who chose not to be bystanders

  • Encouraging children to devise practical ways of making a difference to the lives of others

“When you have the courage to stand up to people and do what you think is right, you can always make a difference. These people have given me the courage to try to heal the world!” Emma Gower age 10, New North London Synagogue
