Award-winning British writer and columnist Howard Jacobson delivered the B’nai B’rith World Center 'Jerusalem Address' on Monday evening entitled "When will Jews be forgiven the Holocaust?" in Jerusalem.
The ‘Jerusalem Address,’ established by the B’nai B’rith World Center in 1985, is a prestigious forum for addressing fundamental challenges facing Israel and the Jewish People. This year's event was chaired by B’nai B’rith World Center Chairman, Dr. Haim V. Katz, and concluding remarks were made by British Ambassador H.E. Matthew Gould.
In his address, Jacobson argued that anti-Semites sought to deny the Holocaust and hid behind criticism of Israel, to both disguise and excuse the guilt of their anti-Jewish sentiment.
