Holocaust functionlists around 1970 started making arguments such as Einsatzgruppen commanders having started the genocidal killings on their own initiative. Later, during the Holocaust trials they lied about this and claimed the existence of superior orders in order to receive reduced punishments. Holocaust revisionist arguments on the lack of a documented Hitler order (see Holocaust documentary evidence) and other research have been argued to have influenced this.[2] One combination of the intentionalist and functionalist views is that Hitler somewhat later in the war approved of these not ordered initial genocidal killings by the Einsatzgruppen and allowed the expansion of the Holocaust from Eastern Europe to all of Europe. An often claimed date for this "delayed" Hitler order is on 12 December 1941, at a Reich Chancellery meeting. See Alleged statements by Hitler on the Holocaust: Goebbelss diary. Functionalist views have become increasingly popular. One explanation for the popularity of ...

The Holocaust is a pervasive presence in British culture and society. Schools have been legally required to deliver Holocaust education, the government helps to fund student visits to Auschwitz, the Imperial War Museums permanent Holocaust Exhibition has attracted millions of visitors, and Britain has an annually commemorated Holocaust Memorial Day. What has prompted this development, how has it unfolded, and why has it happened now? Through analysis of changing engagements with the Holocaust in political, cultural and memorial landscapes over the past generation, this book addresses these questions, demonstrating the complexities of Holocaust consciousness and reflecting on the contrasting ways that history is used in Britain today.. ...
RAMAPO - A prestigious federal grant will allow improved preservation of the historic collection of artifacts at the Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education. Rockland Community College, in partnership with the Holocaust Museum, received the Preservation Assistance Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).. The grant is one of 253 announced last week by the NEH. The $5,999 award will go towards a preservation assessment of the Holocaust Museums collection, a training workshop for Museum staff, and the purchase of preservation supplies.. The Holocaust Museums collection includes books, photographs, newspapers and audio-visual materials. It also boasts some 1,500 artifacts from Nazi-era Germany, World War II and postwar Europe, many of them contributed by survivors of concentration camps or their families.. The Museum is currently constructing a new exhibition space in the RCC Library building. To learn more about the Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and ...
As the quote above states, learning about genocide is more than a history lesson-it is an essential life lesson. Never forget. For this reason, the United Nations General Assembly designates each January 27-the anniversary of the liberation of concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau-as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. On this day, the United Nations encourages member states to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust and to develop educational programs to prevent future acts of genocide.. As many countries, including Germany, Austria and France, and several U.S. states have mandatory Holocaust education in the schools, I highlight six ProQuest products where you can find a wealth of resources designed to meet the needs of students learning about the Holocaust and genocide.. 1. ProQuest SIRS Issues Researcher contains a Human Rights Leading Issue, which includes sub issues on Holocaust Denial and Genocide. Here, students can find timelines with links, overviews and articles on multiple ...
What General Eisenhower and his party witnessed in April of 1945 was some of the real-life evidence that hinted at the notion that Nazi Germany was systematically exterminating large numbers of people. Eventually, the mass slaughter of certain European civilians by the Nazis during World War II, with a particular focus on such ethnic groups as Jews and Gypsies, would become known as "The Holocaust." As Eisenhower suspected, it did not take long for the Holocaust deniers to appear. Wikipedia defines Holocaust denial as "the act of denying the genocide of Jews in the Holocaust during World War II. The key claims of Holocaust denial are that Germanys National Socialist regime had no Final Solution policy and no intention of exterminating Jews, that Nazi authorities did not use extermination camps and gas chambers to mass murder Jews, and that the actual number of Jews killed was significantly (typically an order of magnitude) lower than the historically accepted figure of 5 to 6 million.". An ...
Many recent references have been made in U.S. politics regarding the Holocaust. White supremacy, Charlottesville, immigration and gun control are some examples.. Northern Colorado Holocaust Memorial Observances are from Friday through April 14, with free programs, displays, talks, eyewitness accounts and movies about the Holocaust. For the full schedule, go to http://www.aims.edu/holocaust.. Nearly 100 years ago, Nazis came to power through their innovative use of new technologies including radio and talking films for propaganda and the airplane for political campaigning. Many similarities to the "anti - other" policies of the Nazi era are emerging in the anti-immigration policies of many countries around the world in 2019.. Here are some facts about the Holocaust:. In 1932, the Nazi party was elected on a platform of freedom and economic prosperity. "Only Hitler can save Germany" was the campaign slogan. The Nazis never won a majority of the votes prior to Hitler being elevated from Chancellor ...

IBM, which only two weeks ago was accused of providing technology that facilitated the final solution, now stands charged with delaying insurance payments to Holocaust survivors by demanding $1 million in software costs.. The wrangle concerns database software used by the International Commission on Holocaust Era Insurance Claims, which is trying to match the names of 1940s policy holders with lists of Nazi victims.. Associated Press has obtained a copy of a letter sent by Holocaust Era chairman Lawrence Eagleburger to IBM chairman Louis Gerstner, which argued that Big Blues claim was based on the development costs of software supplied to a different group, called the Volcker Commission. This group was involved in similar work of matching dormant Swiss bank accounts with Holocaust victims in order that money can be paid to their living relatives.. The Volcker Commission owes money for the software to IBM/Tadiran, an Israeli subsidiary of Big Blue, and since the insurance commission needs the ...
By Avram Mlotek. Today marks Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. How is this day different from all the other Holocaust marked days? Well, there are quite a few of those dates to choose from so lets review. It only took the United Nations sixty years to declare January 27 International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the day Auschwitz was liberated by the Russian Army. The Yiddish speaking community continued to mark April 19 as a day of mourning since it was that day in 1943 when the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising started. Theres Kristallnakht or The Night of Broken Glass on November 9, 1938, when hundreds of Jewish synagogues and businesses were burned to the ground. But there isnt the same type of broad Jewish communal recognition for Kristallnakht or any of these other dates for that matter as there is for Yom HaShoah. Why?. In 1953, The State of Israel inaugurated Yom HaZikaron laShoah velaGvurah or Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day. Signed by the Prime Minister of Israel David Ben Gurion, it ...
Posted on 09/22/2009 1:40:56 PM PDT by Berlin_Freeper. Germany will walk out of the U.N. General Assembly if Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad denies the Holocaust in a speech he will give Wednesday, and it wants other European Union countries to do the same, the foreign ministry said. We will leave the hall if President Ahmadinejad denies the Holocaust or makes anti-Semitic statements ... we are making efforts toward a unified European position, a spokesman said Tuesday. Ahmadinejad has, as recently as last week, called the Holocaust a lie, repeating his position just as world powers try to decide how to deal with Irans nuclear ambitions. Denying the Holocaust, carried out by the Nazis in World War Two, is a crime in Germany. Last week German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier condemned Ahmadinejads latest denial and called him a disgrace to his country ...
Key Facts. -Only a small number of millions of children persecuted during the Holocaust wrote diaries and journals that have survived.. -Each diary reflects a fragment of its authors life. -Taken together, the diaries provide readers with a varied and complex view of young people who lived and died during the Holocaust.. Background At least 1.1 million Jewish children were murdered during the Holocaust. Of the millions of children who suffered persecution at the hands of the Nazis and their Axis partners, only a small number wrote diaries and journals that have survived. In these accounts, the young writers documented their experiences, confided their feelings, and reflected on the trauma they endured during these nightmare years. The Diary of Miriam Wattenberg The diary of Miriam Wattenberg ("Mary Berg") was one of the first childrens journals which revealed to a wider public the horrors of the Holocaust. Wattenberg was born in Lódz on October 10, 1924. She began a wartime diary in October ...
After Testimony: The Ethics and Aesthetics of Holocaust Narrative for the Future collects sixteen essays written with the awareness that we are on the verge of a historical shift in our relation to the Third Reichs programmatic genocide. Soon there will be no living survivors of the Holocaust, and therefore people not directly connected to the event must assume the full responsibility for representing it. The contributors believe that this shift has broad consequences for narratives of the Holocaust. By virtue of being "after" the accounts of survivors, storytellers must find their own ways of coming to terms with the historical reality that those testimonies have tried to communicate. The ethical and aesthetic dimensions of these stories will be especially crucial to their effectiveness. Guided by these principles and employing the tools of contemporary narrative theory, the contributors analyze a wide range of Holocaust narratives-fictional and nonfictional, literary and filmic-for the dual ...

In addition, some examples of teaching projects and learning activites of Holocaust Education and Human Rights Education are provided in the Toolkit.
Fox Rothschild originated the initiative in an effort to help promote the importance of upstanding in the community and to engage local students with the culture and history offered through the museum.. As part of the museums mission to teach the history of the Holocaust and advance human rights to combat prejudice, hatred and indifference, students were reminded that during the Holocaust, most people turned a blind eye to the discrimination, persecution and genocide of 6 million Jews by the Nazis. Students were asked to think about Albert Einsteins quote, "The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who dont do anything about it," and then write an essay explaining how and why bystanders chose to ultimately support the Nazi regime by their behavior and spread hatred. Approximately 85 students submitted essays. "As the number of Holocaust survivors dwindles, it is vital that we teach todays youth about this momentous time in ...
Whether one agrees with his remarks or not, they are hardly controversial to those familiar with the conversation Jews have been having with and about God for thousands of years.. Pastor Hagee is hardly the first person to posit an interactive relationship between the hand of the Creator and the fate of the Jewish people. His opinion in this matter may be uncommon in the mainstream, but it is hardly singular, remarkable or exceptional among Holocaust survivors.. Founder and president of CJHSLA, Doris Wise Montrose, said, "My entire life I never heard a discussion about the Holocaust that did not bring up God. Many survivors, including my father, believed that God had a hand in the Holocaust, either by causing it or by allowing it to happen.". CJHSLA urges the public, especially the Jewish community, to recognize and appreciate Pastor Hagees stalwart leadership in American Zionism, as well as his overt, compassionate and substantial support for Israel. Hagees organization, Christians United for ...
The warmth of family, friends and those with shared histories resonated through the Hilton Americas-Houston ballroom Monday during the Holocaust Museum Houstons Lyndon Baines Johnson Moral Courage Award dinner. Even with 1,560 guests, there was an intimacy and poignancy to the night, which honored television producer Norman Lear and the citys community of Holocaust survivors. Actress Jane Seymour enhanced the star power of the evening, joining the program with reminiscences of her fathers role with the RAF during World War II and her mothers internment in a Japanese camp in Indonesia.

A portion of the above class reserved for majors Above class open to graduates only About two million Jews one third of the Jewish victims of the Holocaust had been living in the Soviet Union in 1940. Yet the role of the Holocaust in what the Soviet Union termed The Great Patriotic War has only recently emerged as a major topic of historical study. This graduate colloquium will examine some of the major issues surrounding those aspects of the Nazi genocide of the Jews that took place on Soviet territory. In addition to the history of the genocide itself including its regional variations, we will examine some of the conditions in the prewar Soviet Union that allowed for violence on this scale to take place, including comparisons between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, and postwar Soviet memory of the Holocaust, including its representation in literary, musical, film, and scholarly works, as well as in public commemorations and memorials of the Great Patriotic War ...

The end of the Cold war has seen an explosion in Holocaust history, and some significant changes in the main historiographical explanations. The return of ideology that began displacing the functionalist or structuralist dominance of the 1980s remains strong. But it is being supplemented by very detailed regional and local studies, by analyses of different experiences of ghettoization in different places, and by a focus on the widespread plunder and corruption that accompanied the killing process. This enormous attention to detail reveals that the Holocaust unfolded differently in different places; but it also demonstrates the existence of an overall framework in which all the operations took place, what we might call an antisemitic consensus. Simultaneously, historians have broadened the discussion of the Holocaust, situating it into a transnational or world-historical context of imperialism and colonialism. Stone outlines in broad brush some of these themes, and asks what effects they ...

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina - Argentina on Tuesday gave Israel thousands of World War II era documents during a visit by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he says marks "a new dawn" in his countrys relationship with Latin America.. The digital documents delivered by President Mauricio Macri include nearly 140,000 secret files and photographs from 1939-1950. They include letters, telegrams and reports that were digitized by Argentina and the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington..

Steinberger, who lives in the Galleria neighborhood, loves desserts, so imagine her surprise when she found out that Brook owned Dessert Gallery Bakery & Cafe in the Montrose area. Connections was developed to provide new friendships between survivors and Museum volunteers, and both Steinberger and Brook say that it has been a pleasure to get to know one another. The various connection pairs (there are about 15) attend Museum events together, help out the other when in need, and enjoy each others company, but most importantly, the survivors pass their stories on to the next generation. After the war, her family came back to Poland, but they did not want to stay, because they found out that none of their relatives had survived the Holocaust.

It is a great pleasure to greet all the good friends of the United Nations who have gathered for this observance of the International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust. I welcome in particular the Holocaust survivors and World War II veterans who have joined this solemn ceremony. Ladies and Gentlemen, Courage is a rare and precious commodity. Today, we celebrate those who had the courage to care. Throughout the Second World War, Jews, Roma and Sinti, Soviet prisoners of war and others who failed to conform to Hitlers perverted ideology of Aryan perfection were systematically murdered in death camps such as Auschwitz-Birkenau. But some were able to avoid the slaughter. They escaped because a few brave souls risked their lives and their families to rescue Jews and other victims of persecution from almost certain death. Some sheltered the intended victims in their homes; others helped families to obtain safe passage. Some of the accounts of the rescuers have achieved ...
Israels Holocaust memorial says it is posthumously honoring an Egyptian doctor who risked his life to rescue Jews during World War II, the first Arab to receive the prestigious recognition of Righteous Among the Nations.

This lecture will explore some of the ways that religious Jewish life was affected and responded to during the time of the Holocaust. There is a specific literature dealing with rabbinic responses to urgent questions that were asked at the time. Raul Hilberg found this to be among the most difficult and emotionally disturbing genres of Holocaust literature. This literature is quite spare in English translation. It features questions that were asked in the Kovno ghetto to which Rav Ephraim Oshry responded. The overall theme of this questioning concerned what was permissible and not permissible under such dire and often unprecedented circumstances. When was it possibleto "endanger oneself to save another"? May a person save himself by causing the death of a fellow Jew? The implications ranged from what the Jewish counsel was allowed to do when it had a finite number of "exemptioncards that would permit someone to survive for a while longer while working as a slave laborer." This question was ...

This twisted practice, by the group of people most respected for their genealogy records, shakes my confidence in their information to the core. I strongly support the American Gathering of Holocaust Survivors who are denouncing the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I do believe the Mormons are responding to the outcry, I give them credit for that, but the practice of re-baptism by proxy is what I protest. I do not care what faith people are, they should be allowed to hold onto it as it is a PERSONAL belief. The Mormons clearly believe that this is the only way to be reunited after death, but to change genealogy records is wrong. That goes beyond faith to revisionist history. Honestly, there are parts of every faith that are hard to swallow, and this is their embarrassing problem that they are forcing onto others who dont deserve it. If I died and some relative of mine became Mormon and tried to re-baptize us all by proxy, I would haunt them for eternity. ...

Thank you all for coming out this evening. Im very, very pleased to be here. Im grateful for that very kind introduction. Im going to talk about a subject that in some ways difficult for bioethics, my home discipline, to wrestle with. Bioethics itself, in my view, has never really grappled with the Holocaust. So Im going to try and explain what I mean by that, why I think thats so. It becomes very important in current debates to examine this question because, in bioethical debates today, the Holocaust, the experience of medicine and what it did in Germany, pre-World War II and during World War II, is constantly invoked in public policy arguments and public policy debates. And Ill give you some examples of that tonight.. I think many of the people who invoke analogies, what Ill call the Nazi analogy in bioethics, do so inappropriately. Its hard for bioethicists to sort that out or to say when it might be appropriate and when it might not. Because bioethics doesnt have a good grasp itself ...
Introduction. The Holocaust AO1: a What does the word Holocaust mean and why do some Jews prefer to use the term Shoah? The word Holocaust means burnt offering or sacrifice. This Jewish genocide was called this, mainly because the Nazis killed the majority of Jewish people by burning them. The word Shoah means whirlwind. This was the best way the Jews could explain the horrific event. AO1:b Describe what happened to the Jews of Europe in the 1930s and 40s. Before the Nazis came to power, life for the Jews of Europe was just like any other. They worked, went to school, got married, played sport, the wealthy went on holidays and lived normal lives. It werent until the Nazis came to power that all of this changed. They had experienced discrimination in previous generations, like in the middle Ages. Church Leaders blamed Jews for the death of Christ. So they were known as evil. Jewish people would experience oppression, expulsion and massacre. This went on in to the 19th century. ...

In a conventional movie, each side has its virtues and flaws, which fill the battle between the two combatants with conflict and interest. Here, there can be none of that, and the filmmakers come up against the inherent problem in fact-based dramas about famous cases. If we already know the outcome, how can they keep up the suspense?` Director Mick Jackson and screenwriter David Hare worked closely with Lipstadt to adapt her book History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier (now reissued under the title Denial: Holocaust History on Trial) and put the facts front and center. And the facts were harrowing. Lipstadt, a history professor of Emory University in Atlanta, found herself blindsided one day while lecturing, when David Irving showed up and challenged her, tauntingly promising to give $1,000 to anyone who could prove that one person died in a gas chamber in World War II. Although she had criticized him in her writing, Lipstadt did not know how to handle it when he showed up. Her ...
In 1943, the Jewish population of Thessaloniki was estimated at 56,000 individuals. By the end of World War II, only 1,950 remained and/or returned to the city. The near decimation of the Thessaloniki Jewish community has recently become the focus of many studies. These studies can be divided into two major groups: those that analyze the various aspects of Holocaust in Thessaloniki and those that give voice to individuals who suffered during this period. Steven Bowmans The Holocaust in Salonika, Eyewitness Accounts is a compendium of three personal accounts: those of Yomtov Yacoel, Dr. Isaac Aaron Matarasso, and Salomon Meir Uziel. Bowman provides an introductory essay, and the personal accounts are translated from Greek and Judeo-Spanish by Isaac Benmayor. Benmayor also provides introductory comments and notes for each of the accounts. This book attempts to shed light on the events of the period, the internal conflicts within the Jewish community, and some of the hopes, fears, and suffering ...
One of the questions teachers of Holocaust Studies hear frequently is - "Why didnt they fight back?" The answer is that there was an enormous amount of fighting back - but we have to understand just what it meant to fight against the Nazis during the Holocaust. What options were available to an unarmed civilian population against the most heavily armed, technologically advanced armies in Europe, who had the tactical advantage of the aggressor, and the cooperation, if not collaboration, of most of the occupied countries?. One common theme in the film that we just saw is the young age of the resisters. They were teenagers, 16 - 19 years old, old enough to accept the unprecedented information that Nazi occupation and policies would result in the murder of Jews, but young enough to take life-threatening risks to resist them. We also see how the situation was interpreted differently by the girls and by their parents, and how family relationships and responsibilities influenced ...
In the darkest days of the 20th Century, as the shadow of the evil that was the Holocaust fell across Europe, the courage of one woman was the difference between life and death for a few Jewish families from a little Ukrainian village. Esther Stermer lived in that village with her six children until Nazi forces came in late 1941. More than a thousand Jews were rounded up and sent to camps, where most died. But Esther found another way. Along with her family, including her sons Saul and Sam Stermer, 92 and 86 today, Esther spent nearly a year and a half underground, living in the pitch black of two vast caves in Ukraine, along with 36 other Jews, to escape Nazi persecution. "The secret is that we were in trouble," Sam Stermer told ABC News. "But we never did give in." It is an astonishing story, one of strength and survival from the Holocaust, brought to light 70 years later in the documentary "No Place on Earth." In October 2010, both Saul and Sam revisited the cave for the first time. "Its a ...
This essay examines the involvement and actions of the doctors of the Holocaust. Using examples of experiments performed by the doctors, interviews with some of the doctors, and other evidence found during my research, I will argue that the doctors acted of their own free will and not because the Nazi government made them. The Holocaust is something that we must never forget. Its occurrence relied only upon the indifference of bystanders in every land (Zukier, 1994). Even today we stand by while innocent lives are taken. The recent conflicts in Rwanda or Bosnia, or past conflicts in Cambodia, are merely three examples. Wherever genocide occurs one thing is sure to happen- individual lives become lost in massive numbers and the tolls are so large they become unbelievable. Peter Padfield asserts that without the active and passive aid of millions of Germans, the catastrophe Nazism wrought would not have been possible . . . (Goldhagen, 1991) But how much did the average citizen know concerning ...
Commemorating 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz, UN experts call for urgent action to combat antisemitism. GENEVA (23 January 2020) - States must take urgent and effective steps to monitor antisemitic incidents, ensure accountability for perpetrators of violence, and protect Jewish individuals, communities and sites as part of their effort to combat antisemitism, said UN human rights experts*. In a statement marking the International Holocaust Remembrance Day on 27 January 2020, they expressed concerns about the dramatic - and often unchecked - increase in antisemitic rhetoric and violence around the world, and online. Their full statement is as follows:. With profound sadness and outrage, we, as United Nations human rights experts, mark 75 years since the liberation of the notorious Nazi death camp, Auschwitz, with alarm.

Money Due by Agreement is Withheld from Needy Survivors. The greatest historic statement condemning anti-Semitism that shook Europe is now leveled at the World Zionist Organization. Bank Leumi, one of the oldest and largest banks in Israel, was one of the last banks in the world to agree to compensate victims of the Holocaust for money abandoned in accounts. It wasnt until 2010 that Bank Leumi came to a final agreement to settle an $80 million dollar claim by the Government of Israel with a payment of only $40 million. This settlement came almost 12 years after the Swiss Banks agreed to settle all claims.. Background. The story begins with the original Jewish Colonial Trust (JCT). JCT was established by Theodore Herzl before the creation of the State of Israel as a means to fund a Zionist bank that would be necessary to finance the formation of the State.. Among the millions of Jews annihilated during the Holocaust, were owners of the Trusts shares. In 1951 JCTs Israel subsidiary became Bank ...
In the face of sufferings of Afro-Americans, Vietnamese and Palestinians, my mother s credo always was: We are all holocaust victims - Dr. Norman G. Finkelstein, in his best-seller, The Holocaust Industry. The so-called prophet of Zionist movement, Theodor Herzl, though born to a Jewish mother, never claimed to be a practicing Jew and for his nationalist objectives - was willing to accept some land awarded to European Jews by the western powers, may it be Madagascar or Argentina, Uganda
ALAMEDA - Museums, documentaries and publications tell stories of Holocaust atrocities, replete with photographs of crowded prison camps, emaciated captives and grisly images of corpses piled atop one another.. Less told stories from that era involve humanitarianism, of people reaching out to help others at great risk to their own lives and of those near to them.. Sociologist, futurist and Alameda resident Arthur Shostak seeks to fill that void with his new book, "Stealth Altruism: Forbidden Care as Jewish Resistance in the Holocaust," (Transaction Publications) published March 23.. "Some people who have read the book call it revolutionary," said Shostak, professor emeritus at Drexel University in Philadelphia, from where he retired in 2003. "My book basically brings in from the cold a cluster of heroes and heroines who knew what they were doing … for no reward other than the gratitude of those less fortunate.". "Stealth altruism" refers to the aid given to Jewish prisoners both by fellow ...

The scientists concentrated on epigenetic changes in the FKBP5 gene which has long been the research focus of Elisabeth Binder. "With epigenetic we mean all processes that do not change the actual genetic code but alter its accessibility," explains Elisabeth Binder. "FKPB5 determines how effectively the organism can react to stress hormones, and so regulates the entire stress hormone system. FKBP5 is altered in several diseases such as posttraumatic stress disorder or major depression and has now been associated with intergenerational effects." The results suggest that epigenetic inheritance, where a persons life experiences can affect the genes of their offspring, may play an important part in a childs development. "The gene changes in the children did not appear to be mediated by adversity experienced during their own childhood but could only be attributed to Holocaust exposure in the parents," said Rachel Yehuda. "Environmental influences such as stress, smoking or diet can affect the ...

Thousands of Holocaust survivors and Israelis Sunday mourned the 6 million Jews who died at the hands of the Nazis at memorial services throughout the country.
Originally published in The Boston Jewish Advocate, April 1999). While concentration camp survivors recently marched to the New England Holocaust Memorial, they interrupted a birthday picnic.. The dozen or so little girls camped out on a blanket must have been surprised to see a parade trudge by them, some of the visitors wearing yellow stickers saying "JUDE." No doubt, Boston Mayor Tom Menino and Gov. Paul Cellucci were not recognized by the party - just two more serious grown-ups walking toward the glass towers looking really, really sad.. The young mother in charge of the girls had staked out a prime piece of real estate. Nice grass. A wall of finely pruned shrubbery to give the kids some boundaries. Its the perfect place to blow out the candles, sing "Happy Birthday," and open presents.. And thats what they did. Overwhelmed by the mass of people, the girls stopped screaming and playing tag moments before the Mourners Kaddish. They meant no disrespect. At six or seven years old, theyre at ...

Even in the Nazi camps, homophobia helped inmates distance themselves from those considered other. Even today, Jewish gay and lesbian victims are still erased from how we talk about the Holocaust
Now I know the Israels Haredi community has truly lost its mind. In Beit Shemesh, they began by spitting on an Orthodox 8-year-old Israeli-American girl making her way to school, because she was dressed "immodestly." When the rest of Israel rose in arms at the outrage of this act, the Haredim responded by protesting, trashing parts of the town and lighting fires. Their idea is that its no one elses friggin business what they do in their communities, so butt out bud.. Tonight, they protested in Jerusalem and as part of the festivities they dressed their children in stripped, Holocaust camp inmate uniforms replete with Jewish stars. The point being…what…what point can there be in this? That the rest of Israel is murdering them simply because theyre Jews?. The cheap blackmail of this trickery is astonishing. And despite what anyone may tell you in Israel, it works. No one crosses these people. They own the place. The authorities and politicians cater to their every whim. In the ...

In 2009, the Holocaust Memorial Center was honored to have been selected as one of only eleven sites in the United States to receive a sapling from the tree that grew outside Anne Franks hiding place. During her nearly two years in hiding, her exposure to the outside world was limited to what she could see outside her window. "From my favorite spot on the floor, I look up at the blue sky and the bare chestnut tree, on whose branches little raindrops shine, appearing like silver," she wrote in 1944. "When I looked outside right into the depth of nature and God, then I was happy, really happy." Watching the chestnut tree cycle through the seasons offered Anne hope that one day humanity also would have another chance ...
