Holocaust survivor confronts resurgence in anti-Semitism


Washington (CNN) On a frigid morning in Washington, about 200 high school students file into the auditorium at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum.

On the stage, frail and in a wheelchair, sits 100-year-old Fanny Aizenberg, a Holocaust survivor. She's a featured speaker in the museum's program to have individuals who were persecuted by the Nazis share their stories of seven-plus decades ago, keeping their stories alive as long as long they can, so the world doesn't forget.

Now, anti-Semitism is back in Aizenberg's life. For elderly survivors, it's a struggle to again understand why people hate.

In recent weeks, more than 80 Jewish Community Centers and schools across the country have received bomb threats, including the community center where she lives in a Maryland suburb just outside Washington DC.

1. drumpf owns this resurgence of hatred 110% with his outrageous, disgusting and deplorable behavior.

drumpf's association with Breitbart, Bannon and others seals his hateful deal.

I have never understood hate toward Jewish people it is sick and somehow simmers underground till the right political climate. Enter Chitolini and his Svengali Bannon.

We must have zero tolerance for this and if perpitaters are caught they must be dealt with to the full extent of the law.
