Yad Vashem's reaction to author Jose Saramago's statements

25 March 2002

Yad Vashem condemns author Jose Saramago's statements.

Yad Vashem expresses deep sorrow and concern that an author of such calibre chooses to use the Holocaust in order to strengthen his own claims in a long and complex conflict between two nations. Saramago has completely ignored the historical truth, and undermined those same basic values which he apparently promotes.
