Barcelona Cancels Holocaust Day

I was saddened to read that Barcelona, one of my favorite cities in the world, has cancelled its Holocaust commemoration day. According to this article, the planned day was cancelled in light of Israel’s recent operations in Gaza. As one Catalan official put it: “Marking the Jewish Holocaust while a Palestinian Holocaust is taking place is not right.”

    “Marking the Jewish Holocaust while a Palestinian Holocaust is taking place is not right.”

    Just out of curiosity, does that strike you as a reasonable comment?

  2. Fed Up,

    Thanks for writing. No, absolutely not reasonable comment. I am currently writing an article in reply to this, so please check back for a full treatment.
