Remembering Ukraine's shameful past and the atrocities against Ukraine's Jewish community

Ukraine must not make heroes out of those that supported the NAZI invasion and extermination of Ukrainian Jewish families in shameful racist pogroms.

The rise of neo-NAZIs supported by US extremists whose tools of trade are threats,. abuse and intimidation is of growing concern. Their hidden agenda is not support for Ukraine or its economic or democratic development but their desire to spread their false ideology of hatred and violence.


BRUSSELS (EJP)---European Jewish Congress President, Moshe Kantor, has warned against the rising number of neo-Nazis in Europe.

Speaking at a special commemoration organized Monday evening in the European Parliament on the occasion of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Kantor said : "There are more neo-Nazis than Jews today in Europe."
Kantor, who lost half of his family in the Shoah or Holocaust in Ukraine, deplored the " trivialization" of the neo-Nazi phenomenon and warned that "lessons of history have not been learned."
"We should not allow things to be repeated," he added, in the presence of the president of the European Parliament, Hans-Gert Poettering.
He called for the need to organize a very strong education in Europe and elsewhere about this darkest period of mankind.
