  • Holocaust Memorial Day 2019

    27 Jan 2019 by CST

    Holocaust Memorial Day, commemorated annually on the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, is a reminder of what extreme and unhindered racism, xenophobia and antisemitism can lead to. The theme of Holocaust Memorial Day 2019 is ‘Torn from Home.’ When we reflect on the Holocaust, as Jews, we remember the six million of our kin who were murdered by the Nazi regime in Europe, simply for being Jewish.

  • Restorative Justice: Giving a voice to those affected by antisemitism

    17 Jan 2019 by CST

    Part of CST’s work with those affected by antisemitism is to support them to help address the impact their experience has had. One way to do this is through Restorative Justice, which allows those affected by all forms of crime to explain to the offenders the impact their criminality has had on them and for offenders to apologise for their actions. CST has worked on several cases of antisemitism, nationwide, where Restorative Justice was used to educate the offender and bring closure to the victim.

  • Hidden Hate: what Google searches tell us about antisemitism today

    11 Jan 2019 by CST

    What can the internet tell us about antisemitism in the United Kingdom? Today , CST and the Antisemitism Policy Trust publish a new report, called Hidden Hate: What Google searches tell us about antisemitism today, that uses Google search data from 2004 to 2018 to show what people in the UK are searching for in relation to Jews, Zionism and the Holocaust, and what this tells us about antisemitic attitudes in Britain today. The report is authored by Seth Stephens-Davidowitz, who wrote the acclaimed 2017 book Everybody Lies: What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really Are. The report also uses data from the complete archive of the far right website Stormfront, which has been used as a discussion board by neo-Nazis across the world for over 20 years.

“"The Guardian of Israel doesn't slumber or sleep". This feeling of safety and security that we search for and need is gratefully appreciated when it's given to us by the CST. It really is a pleasure to work with the CST and to be looked after and cared for by them. Where ever I go throughout Britain, in all our Synagogues from north to south the impact and help given by the CST is warmly valued.”
