Shoah survivor tells her story to Arab audience

 With thanks: Michelle

An unprecedented Zoom meeting brought together an audience of 200 Emiratis, Bahrainis, Moroccans 15 Saudis and even a Syrian woman to listen to a Shoah survivor tell her story. Report on Israel’s Channel 12.

The survivor, Vera Grossman-Kriegel, a twin, underwent experiments by the satanic Dr Mengele in the Auschwitz conentration camp. 

The initiative comes from Sharaka, a ‘partnership’ between Israelis and Arabs and would have been unthinkable before the peace agreements reached between Israel and the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco. It is a breakthrough and vitally important. 

 However, as with theAladdinproject, there is a danger that the Arab participants in this exercise will come away with the misconception that Israel was established in respsonse to the Shoah, a purely European story.

 Arabs are shown touring Yad Vashem, the Shoah memorial in Jerusalem, where evidence of the complicity of the Palestinian Mufti, Haj Amin al-Husseini in Hitler’s extermination project and the enduring legacy of Arab and Muslim genocidal antisemitism, has been downgraded.
