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, resistance and active-bystander behaviour by those who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust to inspire students to make a positive impact on their world today.

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 “active-bystander behaviour” to demonstrate our shared humanity
  • Celebrating the “courage of the few” who chose not to be passive bystanders
  • Encouraging children to devise practical ways of making a difference to the lives of others
