An Announcement from Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center
We are saddened by the necessity to once more address horrific antisemitic acts that occurred during the holiday season.
Below is a timely and important announcement from Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center.
“The resurgence of anti-Semitism could be a result, in part, of the vanishing legacy of the Holocaust. Recent surveys reveal abysmal levels of knowledge among young people about what happened to the Jewish people in the Second World War. There is far too little understanding about the slippery slope from the Nazi dehumanization of the Jews in 1933 to the Final Solution nine years later.”
- Congresswoman Nita Lowey and Chief Executive David Harris, American Jewish Committee, The Right Response to the Anti-Semitic Attack in Monsey, N.Y., The NY Times
