Rising anti-Semitism and the consequences of its gradual acceptance

Holocaust Remembrance Day and Rising Anti-Semitism

Rising anti-Semitism and the consequence of gradual acceptance.


Israel held its annual Holocaust Memorial Day ceremony on Monday night. Traditionally, six Holocaust survivors would light the torches and speak about their experiences to a large gathering at Warsaw Ghetto Square in the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem. However, amid the nation’s coronavirus lockdown, this year’s ceremony took place primarily online.

Host Danny Kushmaro addressed an empty square, musicians performed without a live audience, and speeches from Israel’s leaders and stories from Holocaust survivors were presented via video. For the first time ever, the Holocaust Memorial Day ceremony was streamed online.
