From Haaretz – Israel's oldest daily newspaper – a weekly podcast in English on Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World, hosted by Simon Spungin.

    Hijacking the Holocaust for Putin, politics and power

    Hijacking the Holocaust for Putin, politics and power

    On today's show, host Simon Spungin, Haaretz's history correspondent, Ofer Aderet, and Anshel Pfeffer, discuss the Fifth World Holocaust Forum, which will take place this week in Jerusalem to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and extermination camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau.

    Who is organizing the event, why did Poland's president decry the decision not to allow him to address the gathering and why will Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has been accused of adopting a revisionist attitude toward World War II history, be giving a speech?

    A toxic mixture of internecine wrangling between Jewish organizations, a two-year spat between Israel and Poland and a rising tide of global anti-Semitism threaten to turn this solemn occasion into a battleground for petty politics and power plays.
