Default Kwons hearts are heavy for Kobe but don't forget the 6M lampshades on Holocaust Remembrance Day


As world marks International Holocaust Remembrance Day, anti-Semitic attacks are on the rise


International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which Monday commemorated the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, represents one of myriad efforts to keep the lessons of the Holocaust alive against increasing resistance and acts of hate.

The University of Southern California Shoah Foundation in Los Angeles, a nonprofit founded by movie director Steven Spielberg, features more than 52,000 Holocaust testimonies that are frequently accessed.

Other universities throughout the U.S. teach courses on the Holocaust that professors say are popular with students.

The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., received more than 1.6 million visitors in 2018 93% of them non-Jewish in addition to more than 20 million visits to its website.

Yet, incidents of anti-Semitism are on the rise domestically and globally. In its latest audit, the Anti-Defamation League reported 1,879 acts against Jews in the U.S. in 2018, the third highest number in 40 years. The organization also cited New York Police Department figures that said there had been more anti-Jewish incidents in the city in 2019 than all other crimes added together.
