OVER 3OO HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS AND THEIR DESCENDANTS
IN GAZA/LETTER OF SOLIDARITY
STATEMENT OF APPRECIATION AND SOLIDARITY WITH
YOUR COURAGEOUS LETTER OF CONDEMNATION
OF THE ISRAELI GAZA OFFENSIVE ´´PROTECTIVE EDGE´´
Dear Survivors and Descendents of Survivors
I, Astrid Essed, salute you, who have survived one of the greatest
crimes of humanity ever committed.
Not only people were murdered in cold blood, because of their
descent, also people were dehumanized and humiliated.
A strong warning for Mankind, to which xenophobia and racism
Alas, Mankind didn’t learn much of those horrors, because everywhere
in the world, massacres and human rights violations go on and on.
One of the examples of serious human rights violations and
crimes against humanity [Gaza Blockade] is the zionist State
of Israel, where, with a false appeal on the Holocaust to scare
people, and the wrong use of antisemitism to colonize Palestine,
on a daily basis warcrimes and human rights violations are committed.
Your impressive Letter to protest against the latest Israeli
offensive in Gaza ´´Protective Edge´´ has really touched and
Therefore, by this letter, I want to utter strongly my
solidarity with you and my appreciation for
your courageous statement and involvement with
the oppressed people of Palestine.
Especially you, who have survived the horror of horrors can
feel, like no one else, what oppression, humiliation and
dehumanization really is.
I thank you and salute you.
May God be with you.
In deep respect
