Erased Identities, Erased Memories, An Erased People

As I was growing up, I was told by my parents that I was named for my father’s sister, Sarah Newberger, who had been killed in Auschwitz. I knew very little about her, except that she was the oldest of 5 children, was beautiful and married to a very wealthy man who did not want to leave their town of Borszszow, (pronounced as Borstchav, and known now as Melnice), Poland. At one point, a survivor had told my father that Sarah had given birth to infant twin daughters right before the war, and that one was named Raizal and the other Rachel, (although we never were able to verify that fact.)

Jewish lives matter

“First they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew … Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me” — German pastor Martin Niemoller (1892-1984).

The entire civilized world watched in horror when Islamic State launched its attacks against the people of Paris. Then the human interest stories started to appear in places like The New York Times, with a particular focus on Nohemi Gonzalez, the beautiful 23-year-old California State Long Beach student who had the horrific misfortune to be dining at La Belle Equipe on Rue de Charonne at the time of the attacks.

Fact Sheet: The Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement

Fact Sheet on the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) Movement

“Mellifluous talks of democracy and rights and justice masks the B.D.S objective that is nothing other than the end of the Jewish state for which the United Nations gave an unambiguous mandate in 1947. The movement’s anti-Zionism can easily be a cover for anti-Semitism.”
– Roger Cohen, “The B.D.S. Threat,” The New York Times, February 10, 2014

About the BDS Movement

The Boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement is an international anti-Israel movement that seeks to delegitimize and ultimately destroy the State of Israel through the use of political and economic warfare and false accusations. The BDS movement is made up of dozens of NGOs and radical activists around the world, created following a Palestinian civil society “call for a campaign of boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it [sic] complies with international law and Palestinian rights,” in 2005, according to the group. The first “Palestinian BDS Conference” was held in 2007 in Ramallah, giving birth to the BDS National Committee, comprised of a number of anti-Israel groups, to serve as the “Palestinian coordinating body” for the global BDS campaign.
