Europe’s Distortion of the Meaning of the Shoah’s Memory and Its Consequences for the Jews and Israel

From Europe’s Distortion of the Meaning of the Shoah’s Memory and Its Consequences for the Jews and Israel:

On the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, Europeans primarily remembered the Jews’ victimhood. The commemorations followed an ongoing period of public verbal hostility toward Israel and the Jewish communities. The European discourse on “the Shoah’s memory” is a delusion that conceals the nonrecognition of the Jewish people’s legitimacy to exist. Explanations for Europe’s unwillingness to recognize the political dimension of the Jewish people and its suffering involve ancient Christian origins and a modern inability to accept the identity of a collective such as the Jewish people.
