"We believe football can play its part in encouraging society to speak out against intolerance in all its forms"
- David Bernstein
FA Chairman David Bernstein said of the partnership to the organisation's official website: "This educational partnership brings together the important work of teaching future generations about the horrors of the Holocaust, using the ability of football to interest and engage young people.
"There are so many lessons to be learnt and understood, and we believe football can play its part in encouraging society to speak out against intolerance in all its forms.
"I am proud that Roy Hodgson and the England team are supporting such an important initiative and I would encourage all English schools to take advantage of the learning materials that will be created."
