Srebrenica and Holocaust

As part of its projects for the national interfaith week 2014, the Foundation held a workshop on “Srebrenica and Holocaust: Lessons of Our Common Humanity” for 16-year old students at Morpeth School, Tower Hamlet. The school has over 1,600 pupils, over 70 per cent of whom are Muslim. Over 35 students attend the project. The project was written and delivered by Tasif Zaman, one of the Foundation’s student advisors.

The students learnt about the similarities of the common causes which led to the Muslim genocide at Srebrenica and the Holocaust. The workshops challenged the students to become aware of how easily they can become misinformed and prejudiced towards Muslims or Jews which leads to anti-Semitism and islamophobia.
