Holocaust Scholars Urge Aid for Africans in Israel

A new initiative, supported by prominent Holocaust and genocide scholars, calls on the international community to share responsibility for resolving the African refugee crisis in Israel, insisting that Israel should not be expected to carry the burden alone.

Spearheading the initiative are two leading Holocaust historians – Professor Rafael Medoff, director of the David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies in Washington, D.C., and Professor Yehuda Bauer of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The two have been circulating a petition in recent days urging “a world solution for a world problem.” It has been signed, thus far, by 125 academics, clergy, human rights activists, interfaith leaders and writers and artists from the United States, Israel, South Africa, Sweden, Chile, Canada, France and Poland.
