The “De-Judification” of the Holocaust? Trump Avoids Word “Jews” on Holocaust Remembrance Day
2 February 2017
Prominent white supremacist and Donald Trump supporter Richard Spencer has praised Trump for not mentioning in a statement commemorating International Holocaust Memorial Day the 6 million Jews killed. Trump has faced widespread criticism for the omission, but the administration has repeatedly defended the statement. Sen. Tim Kaine went as far as calling it a form of “Holocaust denial”. Spencer, however, praised the statement as the “de-Judification” of the Holocaust. We speak to Andrea Pitzer, author of the forthcoming book, “One Long Night: A Global History of Concentration Camps“. It looks at mass civilian detention without trial from 1896 to today.
