My 1st Yom HaShoah Speech at local high school

Last April,  I launched the Speaker's Bureau  at BCC's Center for Peace, Justice, Reconciliation.  My main motivation was to give a voice to the 2nd & 3rd generation of genocide survivors as the original survivors age and dwindle.  Only descendants of survivors can tell the stories with the same passion as their elders, having lived it through their parents/ grandparents. Telling survivor stories captivates the students' attention. A lecture given by a professor will not share the same energy.

Although I have spoken to students at BCC a couple times,  this year was the first time we had an outside request from a local high school. I had the honor of presenting for Yom HaShoah  (4/24/2017) at Passaic County Tech for ~50 students.   During my 90-minute presentation, I showed my mom's video testimonial about her escape from Germany and also told stories from my dad, and uncle;   about their survival, from Paris to Ceyroux.

Anti-Israel Propaganda prevents Peace


"Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity." Martin Luther King.


To read some useful articles on Israel & the Palestinians:
These sites describe the myths & lies propagated by Pro-Palestinian / Anti-Israel hate groups such as SJP, BDS, & JVP.
SJP, Students for Justice in Palestine, their motto is From the river to the sea Palestine will be free - their goal is the same as that of the Nazis during the Holocaust, a land that is Judenfree -free of Jews.   BDS, Boycott, Divest, Sanctions, it promotes the boycott of Israeli goods. This was a Nazi tactic, Jewish business were boycotted during the Shoah!
To understand Palestinian PROPAGANDA Warfare, we need to expose their deceitful Language: 
PALESTINE - There is no such country.  Palestine was the name for the land of Israel prior to 1948 British Mandate of Palestine.   The mandate divided the land between Israel & Jordan, 2 states, with Jordan getting 77%.  
Original flag of Palestine 1939 (re. http://drrichswier.com/2014/11/16/flag-palestine-1939 ) :


The current Arab Palestinian flag is nearly identical to Jordan's flag.  Can you tell the difference?
  
Arab Palestinians use the terms  "occupation" & "settlers" to describe the Jews of Israel /Palestine.  The truth is that Israel is the Jewish birthright and Jews are indigenous to the land of Israel.   There is scientific evidence to back this up: DNA and archeological artifacts.   Arab Palestinians have even accused Israel of Apartheid.  This is so absurd, since Israel is the only Democracy in the Middle East. Arabs citizens of Israel have full rights.   

When Israel became a state in 1948
700,00 Arabs living in Israel were instructed by their Arab leadership to flee, since the Arab states were planning a military attack.  These Arabs were told by their leaders that they would have the "right of return" after Israel was destroyed.   At the same time 800,000 Jews living in Arab countries were forced to flee as their homes & property was forcefully confiscated.  Those Jewish refugees  became Israeli citizens.  The Arabs who chose to leave Israel became refugees and are still living as refugees to this day! 


Here is a NEW Term:
PALLYWOOD - a term for the orchestrated Palestinian-Hamas propaganda theatrical campaign by the Arab media.  Here is an example
