Granddaughter of Holocaust Survivor Murdered in Paris: We Cannot Be Silent Anymore
Keren Brosh brought many in the crowd at The Algemeiner’s fifth annual “J100” Gala last Thursday in New York City to tears with her emotional recounting of the brutal antisemitic murder in Paris of her 85-year-old grandmother, Holocaust survivor Mireille Knoll.
Brosh thanked The Algemeiner, which was the first English-language media outlet to report on the March 2018 killing, for its ongoing coverage of the case.
“Israel, where I live, was founded on the promise of, ‘Never again,’” Brosh said. “Never again Jews will be killed for being Jews. And that’s why we have the strongest army in the world. But even me, who served in the IDF for 10 years, who was a captain, even I couldn’t save my own grandma from Judeophobia.”
Brosh added: “How do we make it stop? When do we get to say enough is enough? We have students getting bullied on a daily basis for being Jewish. We have little children shot to death in Jewish schools. And now, grandmas being murdered in their houses.”
“Isn’t it enough already? How do we end it?” she asked. “We end it by telling our story. So the world will know that we have a lot of work to do. And that’s why we need to support The Algemeiner. So they can continue to give us a voice. Because we cannot be silent anymore.”
