The Holocaust Card


Norman Finkelstein replies to the Holocaust Card players in the context of the Palestinian-israeli conflict and tears apart their arguments. Norman’s family was killed in the Holocaust. His mother and father survived the concentration camps and brought him up. Norman rubbishes the use of Holocaust card to stifle any dissent/criticism of israel. Members of the audience try to shout him down, but he goes on to complete his argument eloquently and argues that the use of the Holocaust as a justification for israel’s crimes is despicable. He instead states that the sacrifices in the Holocaust of his parents and many others acts as his inspiration to speak the truth about Palestine.
