Holocaust survivors condemn ‘genocide’ in Gaza

More than 300 Jewish Holocaust survivors and their descendants have condemned the “genocide” of Palestinians in Gaza in an advert published in the New York Times.

The statement was released by the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network and published yesterday. It denounces the "racist dehumanisation of Palestinians in Israeli society, which has reached fever pitch” and the “massacre” of Palestinians.

As Jewish survivors and descendants of survivors and victims of the Nazi genocide we unequivocally condemn the massacre of Palestinians in Gaza and the ongoing occupation and colonization of historic Palestine.

  • Statement signed by 327 Jewish holocaust survivors and their descendants.

The statement was drafted as a response to an advert, published in the Guardian and several other newspapers, from Nobel prize-winning author Elie Wiesel which accused Hamas of “child sacrifice.”

According to the latest UN estimates 2,042 Palestinians have been killed since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge. Of those, 1,444 are thought to be civilians.
