Our Principles

“There is a big discussion about the ethics of making the Holocaust into art, a thing of beauty. Theatre in education company Voices of the Holocaust shows how it can be done; not simply as entertainment but as historically researched, no holds barred reflections. You cannot attend without thinking deeply about the Holocaust and what it is to be human.” (Darius Jackson, Centre for Holocaust education, University of London)

Our Principles

- Considering the complex conditions that led the Western world to the Holocaust and of what was, consequently lost; the voices of the past.

- Reflecting, not only on what was lost, but of what was never had; to build an awareness of the changed landscape of European and British society as well as ensuring that Jewish culture and heritage are present in our contemporary world.

- Hearing the difficult truths of one of the most challenging periods in human history and to consider the challenging realities of human behaviour and fallibility.

- Understanding from as well as about the Holocaust; to encourage consideration of other silenced voices and to empower young people and communities to use their own voices to engage in human rights issues, placing themselves actively and ethically in their societies and the wider global landscape.
