An Austrian Parliament event partially devoted to women survivors of the Holocaust is reaping a whirlwind of criticism because it honors a German-born American Jewish woman who opposes Israel’s existence and is hosted by a conspiracy theorist who believes Israel knew about the 9/11 attacks in advance.

“She [Hedy Epstein] is not a survivor in the classical sense,” Efraim Zuroff, the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s chief Nazi hunter, told The Jerusalem Post on Saturday. “She is a notorious anti-Zionist who doesn’t miss an opportunity to exploit her biography to attack Israel. If they [Austria’s parliament] want to talk about the Holocaust, they chose the wrong person. If they want to bash Israel, they chose the right person.”

Zuroff said the choice of Epstein is “absurd” and they “should disinvite her because they are making a mockery of their event.”
