Jews Must Remember: We Were Refugees Too

Remember the tales of our mothers and fathers as refugees, when they were viewed as suspicious and dangerous - and deprived of human rights.

Throughout history, we Jews have been forced into the terrifying position of having to seek asylum time and again. There were heartless nations that closed their gates to us, dogs in the form of men that tore at our flesh, raped our women, murdered our children. And there were compassionate people who opened their doors to us, and among whom we had the privilege of living in harmony.
