We were founded in 1942 and dedicated our work to raising awareness about the persecution and destruction of the Jews of Europe.
Today, CCJ is the only organisation in the UK which provides bespoke Holocaust education for the Christian community.
Programmes have included a Poland study tour for senior Christian leaders, we have taken cohorts of Christian clergy and lay leaders to the International School of Holocaust Education in Israel, Yad Vashem, and in 2022 we ran an online educational programme entitled 'Witnessing to Memory'.
CCJ programmes educate about the Holocaust, enabling deeper understanding and awareness of its impact on Jewish people. We aspire to commemorate the past and transform Christian-Jewish relations for the future.
We work all year round with our programme alumni, supporting them to engage their communities in Holocaust commemoration.
Our resources for Holocaust Memorial Day are used by churches across the UK.
We have a range of resources available, and we produce an annual prayer for Holocaust Memorial Day to be used by churches. To access Holocaust Education resources please click here.
Please contact James Roberts if you are interested in learning more about our Holocaust Education.
Holocaust Memorial Day
Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) is on 27th January every year. It is a day to remember the 6 million Jews who were killed in the Holocaust, the millions of other victims of Nazi persecution, and those who have been killed in subsequent genocides. We encourage Christians to mark Holocaust Memorial Day. For advice and guidance on how to do this, please see here.
