Know the Professor: Daniel Blatman

  • Signed an open letter calling on the German government to reject a resolution equating BDS with anti-Semitism. The letter also urged Germany to continue funding organizations, including pro-BDS NGOs, that “peacefully challenge the Israeli occupation” and “expose severe violations of international law.”[1]
  • Wrote: “The Holocaust serves the fascist and racist discourse of the right-wing [in Israel]… to depict them as the victims with the aim of whitewashing the crimes being committing against the Palestinians.”[2]
  • Professor Yehuda Bauer, academic advisor to Yad Vashem and one of Israel’s most prominent Holocaust scholars, accused Blatman of perpetrating an anti-Semitic canard by accusing the International Holocaust Remembrance Association of being a tool of the Israeli government.[3]
  • Accused Israel of conducting itself in a manipulative way to profit from the Holocaust. [4]
