CUFI Weekly: A message from Holocaust survivor Irving Roth

Please watch this video to hear from our friend, the late Irving Roth, who survived Auschwitz and dedicated his life to ensuring his story—and millions like his—served as a warning to this generation and the next: Antisemitism is not a thing of the past. It is a very real evil that persists in our midst.

While its shades and masks have shifted and mutated in the seven or so decades since Auschwitz, at its core, antisemitism remains the same: hatred for Jews. What begins as words of vitriol, bred in ignorance, soon enough, legitimizes murder.

As Irving said, in times such as these, there is no such thing as a bystander—not really. We each have a responsibility to fight against darkness and shine a light on antisemitism.
