EJC with the partnership of the World Holocaust Forum, the President of the Czech Republic Miloš Zeman and the President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz organised the Fourth International "Let My People Live!" Forum.

The Forum gathered pan-European intellectuals and high-level politicians to discuss practical ways to combat the rise of Antisemitism, racism and religious radicalism in Europe.

Following a series of inspired debates, 25 Speakers from Parliaments across the continent came together to adopt a historic declaration on Antisemitism and hate crimes – The Prague Declaration. The commemoration ceremony took place in Theresienstadt.
