The first UK envoy for post-Holocaust studies was appointed Wednesday by the British Foreign Office.
Foreign Secretary William Hague selected former British ambassador to Israel Sir Andrew Burns for the position.
“The UK is determined to preserve the memory of the Holocaust for future generations," Hague said in a statement announcing the appointment. "Sir Andrew’s appointment will ensure that we continue to support those working to right past wrongs and remain at the forefront of international discussions, to make sure that the lessons of this terrible period in our history are never forgotten."
