Holocaust Commission seeks youth advisors

The Holocaust Commission, launched by the government to investigate how Britain should preserve the memories and lessons of the Holocaust, is looking for youth advisors. The winner of an essay competition will be selected to join the Commission and help advise the government.

Young people are invited to enter by writing an essay on the question 'Why is it so important that we remember the Holocaust and how can we make sure future generations never forget?' Six places at a Downing Street forum are up for grabs for the best essays from the age categories: 21 years old and under; 18 years old and under; 16 years old and under.

One overall winner will be chosen by Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel to join the Commission, feeding in the forum's views and helping to decide final recommendations to the Prime Minister.

The closing date for the competition is 30 May 2014. Find out more and enter the competition.
