The Ascot Holocaust Education Project is managed by a community group of trustees and members from the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, Sunninghill & Ascot Parish, as well as the museums of Windsor and Maidenhead. The project seeks to raise awareness of the story of ‘Ascot’s Belsen Boys’ and deliver a Holocaust Education programme in Berkshire.

“I was not born out of stone. I had a family and I knew what love meant and all this was broken and taken away.”
— Jack Bart, Holocaust survivor cared for in Ascot.
