Acusan al Museo del Holocausto de no prestar atención al antisemitismo musulmán

WASHINGTON, Jan. 25 (JTA) — The grand mufti of Jerusalem made an alliance with Adolf Hitler during World War II. Yet, visitors to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., will learn nothing about it.

Some Jewish activists want to change that.

The locally based Holocaust Museum Watch is urging the museum to take a leadership role in exposing Arab and Muslim anti-Semitism both during the Holocaust and in the present day.

The absence of programs or information on the topic is a “dereliction of duty” by the facility, HMWatch chair Carol Greenwald charged last week, speaking during a forum at Ohev Sholom Talmud Torah.

Among their complaints is the museum’s failure to detail Jerusalem Grand Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini’s connection to the Nazis. The two met in Berlin in 1941, and Hitler pledged his assistance in ridding the Arab world of Jews.

Later in the war, the mufti, among other activities, broadcast radio messages supporting the Nazis and helped recruit Muslim SS units in the Balkans.

The museum also bypasses the persecution of North African Jews, said Shelomo Alfassa, founder of the Sephardic Holocaust Project and executive director for the International Society for Sephardic Progress.

Nothing in the museum details the forced labor camps in Tunisia, from which 4,000 Jews were deported to European extermination camps, Alfassa said. Nor, he said, is there mention of the “Vichy restrictions” forcing Jews into ghettos in Morocco during the wartime period.

Edwin Black — author of “Banking on Baghdad, a history of Iraq” — points out that the museum makes no mention of the Farhud, a 1941 pro-Nazi pogrom in the Iraqi capital city that killed more than 200 Jews and destroyed hundreds of Jewish businesses.

Entre otras protestas:Por supuesto la del Muftí de Jerusalén, de la que ya hablamos. Pero hay otras cuestiones: la persecución de los judíos del norte de África también se omite, cuando más de 4.000 judíos fueron deportados a los campos de concentración -más bien, exterminación- de Europa. Tampoco se menciona de las “restricciones de Vichy” que obligaron a los judíos a permanecer en ghettos en Marruecos durante el período de la guerra. Tampoco se menciona Farhud, un pogrom pro-Nazi de Bagdad que mató a más de 200 judíos y destruyó cientos de negocios judíos.
