AJC Statement on Jonathan Glazer’s Oscars Acceptance Speech

Jonathan Glazer’s comments claiming that the “Holocaust [is] being hijacked by an occupation,” is an obscene distortion of Israel’s reality and a trivialization of the Holocaust.

As Israel, home to the largest number of living Holocaust survivors, works to eliminate the continued threat posed by Hamas, an Iran-backed internationally recognized terror organization, and as American Jews are facing an unprecedented surge in antisemitism with ugly anti-Israel discourse and anti-Zionist antisemitism spreading at an alarming rate, these comments are dangerous. They give cover to pro-Hamas protesters and their so-called advocacy, providing an excuse to attack Jews and spread anti-Jewish hate.

AJC is the global advocacy organization for the Jewish people. With headquarters in New York, 25 offices across the United States, 14 overseas posts, as well as partnerships with 38 Jewish community organizations worldwide, AJC’s mission is to enhance the well-being of the Jewish people and Israel and to advance human rights and democratic values in the United States and around the world.
