The Holocaust Educational Trust is a charity which says it works 'to ensure that people from every background are educated about the Holocaust and the important lessons to be learned for today.'[1]

It defines the Holocaust as follows: 'The Holocaust was the murder of approximately six million Jewish men, women and children by Nazi Germany and its collaborators during the Second World War. The Holocaust is often referred to as the Shoah, the Hebrew word for catastrophe.'[1] In 2008 the trust was the recipient of "£4.6m scheme announced by ministers this month to tie in with Holocaust Memorial Day the Government's to send sixth-form pupils from every school in England to visit the concentration camp at Auschwitz".[2]
