8 Holo­caust sur­vivors at Hanukkah cel­e­bra­tion

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Dave Boyer

Pres­i­dent Trump marked Hanukkah on Thurs­day evening at a White House re­cep­tion that in­cluded eight Holo­caust sur­vivors.

In an East Room event, Mr. Trump re­called the fa­tal mass shoot­ing at a syn­a­gogue in Pitts­burgh in Oc­to­ber, call­ing it a “sin­is­ter anti-Semitic at­tack.”

“In the af­ter­math of that wicked as­sault, we reaf­firmed our solemn duty to con­front anti-Semitism ev­ery­where it oc­curs,” the pres­i­dent said.

The pres­i­dent then in­tro­duced eight Holo­caust sur­vivors, telling them that they in­spire the world with their courage, and that they had seen “evil be­yond de­scrip­tion.”

The White House iden­ti­fied them as Sara Cen­sor, Bertha Ein­horn, David Ein­horn, Ethel Flam, Gita Lan­dau, Dolly Rabi­nowitz, Ruth Salamon and Za­hava Un­gar.
