Holocaust Scholars Sign Letter Raising Concerns About Trump’s Choice for US Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman

February 14, 2017

Dozens of Holocaust scholars recently signed onto a letter addressed to the ranking members on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee raising serious concerns about David Friedman, President Trump’s pick to be the next Ambassador to Israel. The letter details Mr. Friedman’s disregard for the complex history of the Holocaust and focuses on his casual use of the term “Kapo.” The scholars urge the Senate to keep his “disrespectful and politically cynical use of the Holocaust in mind” as they consider his nomination. You can read the full text of the letter below.
