"Today we can fight, then you could not," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday told Holocaust survivor Abraham Niederhoffer who was born in Romania 85-years-ago.
Netanyahu met with Niederhoffer in Jerusalem on the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day.
When Niederhoffer was 11 he was taken via Moldova to the Shargorod Ghetto in Ukraine. He told Netanyhau that after he survived the war he walked on foot for days back to Romania. Ultimately making aliya to Israel, he became an engineer and building supervisor.
At the end of the meeting Netanyahu presented Niederhoffer with his copy of Phil Chernofsky's book And Every Single One Was Someone
in which the author writes the word Jew six million times.
"This book contains one word that is repeated six million times: Jew. I keep it with me to remember, but not only to remember but also to prevent. What was done to you, people want to do to us today," Netanyahu told the survivor.
