Mission and strategy

Our mission and purpose

Our mission and purpose are based on the Stockholm Declaration and the Statement of Commitment created at the Stockholm Conference on Holocaust Education, Remembrance and Research, in the year 2000. These form the basis of our charitable objectives.

Our purpose is to promote and support Holocaust Memorial Day as the UK’s national Day to commemorate the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust, all victims of Nazi Persecution and those who have been murdered in subsequent genocides; to encourage people to learn lessons from the past and take steps to challenge hatred and persecution.

Our vision & values

Underpinned by our commitment to the Stockholm Declaration and the Statement of Commitment, our vision is:

to learn lessons from the past to create a safer, better future

Our values are to work in ways that are kind, transparent, dignified, expert, trustworthy, creative, collaborative and just. We form partnerships where appropriate and effective, and signpost to other organisations.
