CHARLES SUC­CEEDS THE QUEEN AS PA­TRON OF SHOAH TRUST

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY -

THE PRINCE of Wales is the new pa­tron of the Holo­caust Me­mo­rial Day Trust, suc­ceed­ing the Queen, who had held the role since the trust’s es­tab­lish­ment 10 years ago. Ad­dress­ing last year’s HMD cer­e­mony, the Prince called the Shoah “an un­par­al­leled hu­man tragedy and an act of evil unique in history”. Trust chief ex­ec­u­tive Olivia Marks-Wold­man said that “sur­vivors of the Holo­caust and sub­se­quent geno­cides are hugely ap­pre­cia­tive of the royal fam­ily’s recog­ni­tion of the im­por­tance of com­mem­o­rat­ing the dread­ful per­se­cu­tion which they en­dured”.
