Religious Tolerance

Thought for the Day

In December, The Prince of Wales was invited to present BBC Radio 4’s Thought for the Day. Taking Aid to the Church In Need’s third annual report on religious persecution as his inspiration, The Prince delivered a message which was also shared on the BBC’s World Service.

As a result of the broadcast, The Prince was awarded the Statue of Remembrance by the International Auschwitz Committee for those who support remembrance and a world of open-mindedness and tolerance.

The Prince’s message was also recorded for Aid to the Church In Need.

International Auschwitz Committee

The International Auschwitz Committee presented His Royal Highness with their Statue of Remembrance statuette in recognition of his work in speaking out against religious persecution and anti-Semitism. The award has previously been given to figures such as Pope Francis, the UN Secretary-General, Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany and the late President of Israel. It was presented by an Auschwitz survivor at a reception His Royal Highness gave at St James’s Palace for the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, of which he is Patron.
