I wish I could say I’m speechless. I’m not. It’s just most of the words that come to find are inappropriate for this site.
Jewish Anne Frank House Museum Employee Told to Remove Yarmulke
A Jewish employee of the Anne Frank House museum was told that he was not allowed to wear his kippa because it would conflict with the organisation’s “independent position” and might “influence” the message of combatting anti-Semitism.
“The Anne Frank Foundation is an independent organisation without religious ties. Those are directed at combating anti-Semitism. We did not want that, for example, a yarmulke would influence that message,” she added.
So I’ll just leave you with a couple of thoughts.
You want to know why 41% of Americans don’t know what Auschwitz is? Why they don’t really comprehend (at least as much as a sane person could) the Holocaust?
Bullshit (sorry) like this — suppressing history — is why.
