Lessons of war in 'increasing danger' of being forgotten

PRINCE Charles has warned the lessons of the Second World War are in "increasing danger” of being forgotten.

The Prince of Wales was speaking at a fundraiser for World Jewish Relief. He made the comment while recalling the "indescribable persecution” Holocaust survivor and weightlifting Olympian Ben Helfgott faced.

"World Jewish Relief enables us to rally together to do what we can to support people practically, emotionally and spiritually,” he said.

"Particularly at a time when the horrific lessons of the last war seem to be in increasing danger of being forgotten.”

His speech comes as thousands gathered outside 10 Downing Street, protesting US President Trump's planned state visit to Britain.
