Wellington, FL - Today Guido Weiss Delivered a Statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah)
"Today, as we enter Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah), we must always remember those six million who perished and fight harder to end antisemitism in Florida, the United States, and around the world, for this generation and those to come. "Those in my family who could flee Nazi Germany, came to America and eventually South Florida. I will always fight to remember them and protect the Jewish people as well as all others from any form of bigotry." "Unfortunately, antisemitism is on the rise. A recent report found that there was an 18% increase in antisemitic violence in 2019, not including the abhorrent conspiracies inciting attacks against Jews, blaming them for COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic." "We must remind the world that the crimes committed against Jews and other vulnerable groups during the Holocaust began with radical ideology, appeasing xenophobia, and an overall lack of empathy for thy neighbor. We must never forget."
