Yad Vashem Encourages White House Press Secretary to Visit its Website

12 April 2017

In light of recent statements made by White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center, encourages him to visit the Yad Vashem website to learn about the Holocaust and its period in history.

Yad Vashem expresses deep concern regarding the inaccurate and insensitive use of terms related to the Holocaust by the White House Press Secretary. His statements imply a profound lack of knowledge of events of the Second World War, including the Holocaust. Moreover, they are liable to strengthen the hands of those whose goal is to distort history.
