On Monday 30th January, students heard a testimony from Holocaust survivor, Ernest Simon, as part of a visit organised by the Holocaust Educational Trust (HET).

Ernest was born in May 1930 in Eisenstadt, Austria. Following the Anschluss in March 1938, Ernest and his family moved from Eisenstadt to Vienna, where they settled in a small flat in the Jewish quarter. As soon as they moved, Ernest's father began making desperate efforts for the family to leave the country.

BBE letter against the Paris summit: 15 January 2017

This week, BBE and BBI sent letters to 11 European countries urging them not to attend the upcoming summit on the Middle East peace process that will be held this Sunday January 15th in Paris. Because as Dan Mariaschin puts it, "[this summit] may set the stage for yet another one-sided U.N. Security Council resolution, which would continue to cloud the prospect of a negotiated peace. By prejudging the outcome of future negotiations, repeatedly castigating Israel, and pressuring the Jewish state to make unilateral concessions, the international community continues to encourage Palestinian rejectionism."

Our president Daniel Citone, informed the lodges of the countries where letters have been sent, to invite them take actions also locally.

The countries that BBE wrote to are: Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Spain and UK.

The case of France is different since it is hosting the conference. B'nai B'rith France, led by Serge Dahan is following the matter on the ground.

We are supporting and welcoming every effort from the lodges against this process.

B'NAI B'RITH COMMENDS GERMANY'S CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATIC UNION FOR OPPOSING BDS

Merkel


B'nai B'rith strongly commends German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party for passing a resolution opposing the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. BDS only furthers Palestinian attempts to demonize and delegitimize the Jewish state, in turn harming the peace process by discouraging direct negotiations between the parties.

The CDU, in a statement, said: "Who today under the flag of the BDS movement calls to boycott Israeli goods and services speaks the same language in which people were called to not buy from Jews. That is nothing other than coarse anti-Semitism...The CDU will decisively oppose every hostile action that Israel faces."

We applaud the CDU's forceful rejection of an anti-Semitic and anti-Israel movement that seeks to destabilize the Jewish state's economy and ultimately end Israel's existence. We further welcome the potent symbolism of such a message from Germany's governing party. B'nai B'rith hopes that the CDU's exemplary action will prompt other political actors throughout Europe to condemn BDS and denounce anti-Semitism and anti-Israel hatred.
