Argentina Holocaust Holocaust Survivors


Like I said earlier, it’s very hard to believe that this was an act of ‘suicide’, the man was murdered to shut him up and his investigation for good.

Argentina’s Jewish community has announced that none of its representatives will attend an official Holocaust Memorial Day ceremony next week, amid growing anger over the mysterious death of a state prosecutor who was investigating the alleged coverup of the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community centre in Buenos Aires.

The body of Alberto Nisman was found late on Sunday next to a .22-calibre handgun and a bullet casing on the floor of the bathroom of his flat in Buenos Aires. Nisman had been due to testify to Congress on his allegations that President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner had conspired to protect Iranian officials implicated in the attack on the Argentinian Jewish Mutual Association, Amia, in which 85 people died.

On Friday, the Amia, the Daia – the country’s affiliate to the World Jewish Congress – the Holocaust Museum of Buenos Aires and other groups announced their refusal to send any representatives to the ceremony at the country’s foreign ministry on Tuesday.

“The charges are so gruesome and extend to so many areas of government that it would be an insult to the memory of our victims of the Shoah to attend,” said Waldo Wolff, vicepresident of the DAIA,

the son of a Jewish survivor of Nazi Germany who sought

refuge in Argentina after Germany’s Kristallnacht anti-Jewish pogroms of 1938.

Anger was focused on the alleged role of the foreign minister, Héctor Timerman, who Nisman alleged had participated in secret talks with Iran – and who is also Jewish.
