“What became the Shoah did not start with physical attacks. It began with hateful words, slander, conspiracy theories and anti-Jewish sentiment that had long existed in parts of Europe”

“Today, we remember the horrors of the Holocaust. In doing so, it is important to remind ourselves of how the terror started. What became the Shoah did not start with physical attacks. It began with … hateful words, slander, and conspiracy theories that fed on anti-Jewish sentiment that had long existed in parts of Europe.”
