The number of living survivors cannot be more than a quarter of this figure now.
Because enduring the camps became a crown of martyrdom, many Jews who spent the war elsewhere represented themselves as camp survivors. Another strong motive behind this misrepresentation, was material. The postwar German government provided compensation to Jews who had been in ghettos or camps.
Many Jews fabricated their pasts to meet this eligibility requirement. Finkelstein opposes using holocaust compensation funds for holocaust education, museums and memorials, preferring to reduce the total compensation and deny any reparations to Jewish institutions.
Lessons of Holocaust Compensation, normanfinkelstein. He focuses his most blistering personal attack on Elie Wiesel, who has become in America almost a cult figure and Holocaust icon. It is well known that a public, international Holocaust discourse began in the seventies, gathered strength in the next decade, reached a staggeringly large audience in the mid-nineties and, contrary to many predictions, has continued to stimulate huge interest since then.
For example, much wider scrutiny and consideration should be given to the current international appetite for Holocaust museums, memorials and education. The foundation board will be made up of representatives of various Jewish organizations, Holocaust survivor groups and the Israeli government. All of it should go to the survivors. As long as there are still survivors who are old and sick and needy, they are the first obligation.
Yet, he recalls, even she was disgusted at the rise of the Holocaust industry in America. There were, he says, only 60, Jewish survivors of the camps and 20, of those died in the first week after liberation.
Soon everybody was a victim of the great martyrdom. And, since , the industry has been claiming that 10, survivors have been dying every month. That is completely impossible. It would mean that there were 8m survivors in , but there were only 7m Jews in German-occupied Europe before the war.
In juggling these numbers the Holocaust industry, however unintentionally, whitewashes Nazism. It was the actions of the Jewish establishment. I am only the messenger who reports on the actions of the Jewish establishment, actions that are encouraging anti-Semitism. Dershowitz, Finkelstein is often praised by far right revisionists of the Third Reich, such as Hitler- admiring historian, David Irving.
He is the son of Holocaust survivors but an unremitting critic of Holocaust reparation claims; a Jew but is a life-long anti Zionist; and though very much a Leftist, he is often praised by far Right revisionists of the Third Reich, such as Hitler-admiring historian David Irving. Atapattu, As we know from the rise of anti-Semitism in other parts of the world, hate speech does lead to violence. Nor is there anything new about how the Holocaust has taken on a disproportionate role in shaping the identity and agenda of the American Jewish establishment.
In the introduction to his book, Norman Finkelstein mentions Novick as having influenced his own writings. For some time now, we have wondered why the Resource Center so obsessively singles out Israel while so many other areas of the world, which deserve equal if not greater attention, go virtually ignored. If the Resource Center cannot act respectfully toward the Jewish community in Santa Cruz, how can it be a force for nonviolent change in the Middle East?
Of course, the flyer gives no indication whether its preparation was a group project or an assignment undertaken by one or two members of the group. Certainly, clergy encounter a variety of pressures — including time constraints — in any setting. In this instance, taking shortcuts, skipping the research, trusting in unchecked cliff notes or colleagues, has contributed not only to poor scholarship, but to poor leadership.
Even when the typist makes errors only in spelling and footnotes, in submitting a group project, everyone takes equal responsibility and makes the same grade. The citizens of Santa Cruz, certainly the people who joined in the candlelight vigil for whom the flyer purports to speak, deserve better from their local Jewish leaders than this distorted and misleading hit-piece on Norman Finkelstein and the Resource Center for Nonviolence.

A Conversation with Professor Norman Finkelstein: How to Lose Friends and Alienate People. Bartov, O. A Tale of Two Holocausts. New York Times. Blokker, B. NRC Handlesblad. The Marketplace of Ideas: The bottom line of Finkelstein's book is that it says what was very long overdue to be said. But few academics have the courage or intellectual fortitude to weather the defamation campaign that will predictably descend on anyone who challenges this multi-billion dollar industry.
Historically speaking, it has seldom been the politically correct Professor Zweigs of a given time that brought us closer to the truth, but the defiant and much-maligned "heretics" such as Norman Finkelstein. I recommend the advice Nietzsche gave his readers years ago: From the debate it becomes clear that Professor Finkelstein is extremely comfortable when dealing with the charges leveled against him by his detractors.
He refutes them calmly and convincingly. No wonder the spokespersons for the holocaust industry prefer writing unopposed "hit pieces" like the New York Times review over challenging Professor Finkelstein directly Jump to: File File history File usage.
