Ken Livingstone and the Myth of Zionist ‘Collaboration’ With the Nazis

In this meticulous rebuttal of the former mayor of London’s charge that “you had right up until the start of the second world war real collaboration [between Nazis and Zionists]”, Paul Bogdanor, author of Kasztner’s Crime, points to Ken Livingstone’s “mutilations of the historical record and of the very sources he cites” and the politically reactionary character of Livingstone’s version of history which “equates persecutors and rescuers, aggressors and victims, the powerful and the powerless, oppressors and the oppressed.”


“…one of the reasons we make so many mistakes in politics is that so few politicians study history.” Ken Livingstone (Independent, 2016)
