The Prince of Wales has said the lessons of the Holocaust are in danger of being forgotten, in remarks which have been linked by some to Donald Trump’s ban on Syrian refugees entering the US.
The heir to the throne was speaking at the annual dinner of World Jewish Relief three days after Trump signed an executive order indefinitely banning Syrian refugees and suspending entry for people from seven Muslim countries.
The prince told the charity dinner: “In my own life, I have always tried to reach across the boundaries of faith and community; to extend a helping hand wherever one might be needed.”
The charity’s work was particularly needed “at a time when the horrific lessons of the last war seem to be in increasing danger of being forgotten”, he added.
