Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM) Advisory Board member Elan Carr — the former U.S. Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Antisemitism — traveled to Poland last week to take part in the annual March of the Living at the site of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp, where nearly one million Jews were murdered by the Nazis during World War II.
“When you come to a place like this, and walk the ground soiled with the blood of the Jewish people, you realize where [antisemitic] hatred can lead,” Carr said in an interview with journalist Alex Traiman. “And in order to understand how despicable, how dangerous, how destructive is this hatred that is antisemitism that is with us despite this [the Holocaust] happening recently, only 80 years ago Jews were being exterminated right here where we stand, and yet antisemitism is with us — that is why it is so important that we come here, we experience this, and we say with one clarion unified voice, ‘Never Again.'”
Carr was a member of a special delegation that also included current U.S. Ambassador to Israel Thomas Nides and former U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman.
