In light of Shoah, teens feel Israel should aid refugees

| |

Most teenagers feel that the lessons of the Holocaust require Israel to offer assistance to refugees, according to a survey released on Monday.

The poll, conducted on behalf of Massuah Institute for Holocaust Studies, showed about 67 percent of the 1,000 respondents, aged 15 to 18, believe the Jewish state should help foreigners fleeing persecution in their countries. In addition, about a quarter of young Israelis said the murder of 6 million Jews by the Nazis and their collaborators during World War II was proof that “the world is against us.”
