In our first event as the HKHTC, we welcomed Steven Smith, Head of the Shoah Foundation at the University of Southern California. Mr Smith spoke at the Jewish Community Centre, about the importance of Holocaust education and the preservation of memory, in order to avoid future genocides and crimes against humanity.

Smith was a co founder of Britain’s first Holocaust Centre and the Aegis Trust for Genocide Prevention before taking his current position.

The ceremony was attended by Consul Generals, faith leaders, members of the Jewish community as well as other distinguished guests.
