Cymbrowitz addresses Holocaust revisionism at Berlin conference

Calling Holocaust deniers not only a violation of the memories of the victims, but a powerful tool of the modern day anti-Semite, Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz, a second generation Holocaust survivor, traveled to Berlin, Germany to address The Legacy of World War II and the Holocaust Conference, a worldwide gathering of academics, former prisoners of ghettos and concentration camps, public officials, World War II partisans and journalists, sponsored by the World Congress of Russian Jewry.

The goal of the conference was to produce specific recommendations for coordinating the efforts to counter the attempts to revise the history of World War II.

The World Congress of Russian Jewry has reported a surge of pro-Nazi sentiments and the glorification of the Nazi collaborators in some countries of the former Soviet Union and among some nations of the former Communist block.

Cymbrowitz, with Assemblyman Alec Brook-Krasny and District Leader, Mark Davidovich, presented the president of the World Congress of Russian Jewry, and organizer of the conference, Senator Boris I. Shpigel with the New York State bill, and pen used to sign it into law, which mandates all voting materials be translated into Russian.
