Daily Briefing: “EVERYBODY HATES THE JEWS” (September 30th, 2021)

Who Cares?:  Mitchel G. Bard, Jewish Press, Sept. 26, 2021 — At the risk of putting a target on my back, it has occurred to me that the proper response for much of the anti-Israel activity on and off campus should be a combination of derision, counter-attack and neglect. I’ve been dealing with anti-Semitism, Israel denial and Middle East issues since my college days and, after more than 40 years, I have concluded that too much time, money, and energy is being spent responding to the latter.

Jews from Kiev and the Surrounding Areas Murdered at Babi Yar:  Yad Vashem — On 19 September 1941, the Germans occupied Kiev, and the Jews were subjected to abuse and persecution from the first days of the occupation.  Buildings in central Kiev being used by the German authorities were reduced to rubble by landmines laid by Soviet sappers, and the Germans blamed the city’s Jews for this act.  On 28 September, the Germans hung signs throughout Kiev instructing the Jews to report at a collection point the following day.  They were ordered to bring documents, clothes, money and valuables with them, and warned that failure to report would result in execution.  The next day, the Jews gathered at the appointed place, and were marched to the Babi Yar ravine.  In the course of two days, 29-30 September (Yom Kippur Eve), 33,771 Jewish men, women and children were murdered at Babi Yar by Einsatzgruppen C soldiers with the assistance of local collaborators.  Jews who managed to escape the massacre in September and were discovered in the ensuing months, were brought to Babi Yar and murdered.
