HIKIND: “These people are not in the same category as Jewish people with regards to the Holocaust,” Hikind said following a press conference at the memorial. “It is so vastly different. You cannot compare political prisoners with Jewish victims.”

“The Holocaust is a uniquely Jewish event,” said Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn), whose mother is a Holocaust survivor and only Jews persecuted during the Nazi reign should be honored at a Holocaust memorial in Brooklyn.

Ghettoization continues after death.

Canada celebrates victory in Europe

Broadcast Date: May 7, 1945
Victory flags are flying high, church bells are ringing, and people are celebrating in the streets. It’s May 7, 1945, and the Allies have secured victory in Europe — 2,076 days after the start of the Second World War. Following a long series of hard-fought battles against Nazi aggression, the Allies get the news that German troops have finally conceded unconditional surrender. But for many this victory is somewhat bittersweet.
