Orban’s disappointing reaction to anti-Semitism
The Hungarian president’s refusal to condemn a racist caricature of a Jewish communal leader has ominous connotations

Why is this Yom Hashoah different from every other?
Several weeks ago I had the unique opportunity to travel to Poland. I walked on the very same land that the evil Nazis walked upon. I walked on the very land that millions of Jews once danced and lived...
