SWC Reporting from UNESCO's World Heritage Committee Meetings in Krakow

Simon Wiesenthal Center
The “greatest assault on Judaism since the Middle Ages.”
Until the Holocaust, Krakow, Poland was a center of Jewish life, learning, and values. Now it is a Jewish ghost town. The Auschwitz death camp, just a few miles away is where much of Polish Jewry met its horrific end.

One would think that a UNESCO World Heritage Committee meeting convening in Krakow would seek to protect the legacy of the Jewish people. Instead, a resolution condemning Israel as the “occupying power” in Jerusalem by Jordan, the Palestinians and other Arab delegations has already passed. Denying the Jewish people’s historic and religious ties to Jerusalem is, in the words of Dr. Shimon Samuels, SWC’s International Relations Director, the “greatest assault on Judaism since the Middle Ages.”

The SWC is the only Jewish organization accredited to the World Heritage Committee and Dr. Samuels is there representing all of us, defending our people, history and values, from a “diplomatic” onslaught that seeks to de-legitimize our people, land, and faith.

And there is more trouble in Krakow. Tomorrow, the same cabal, led by the Palestinians will seek to erase Jewish history by having the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron, (pictured above) a site first bought by our Patriarch Abraham, designated as an endangered site of Palestinian(!) heritage.

More from Krakow tomorrow ....
