The Holocaust was not an aberration. It was Europe's true roots. The moratorium was the blip.
The head of the Center of Organizations of Holocaust Survivors in Israel is urging the European Union not to pour tens of millions into a Polish ultra-nationalist Catholic radio station infamous for its anti-Semitic programming.
"The head of the radio station, and the radio station itself, is known throughout Europe as a symbol of the increasing wave of global anti-Semitism," head of the umbrella organization of Holocaust survivors in Israel, Noah Flug, wrote in a letter to the President of the European Commission José Manuel Barroso.
"Any financial support for such sources will only strengthen anti-Semitism and the lack of tolerance," he wrote.
The prominent Polish daily Gazeta Wyborcza reported last month that the school was on a list of 350 projects that Warsaw had recommended receive EU funding.
