Never Again for Anyone challenges the misuse of the Nazi genocide of Jews (“The Holocaust”) for political purposes. By exceptionalizing the Nazi genocide, European Jews are set apart from the victims and survivors of that and other genocides instead of being united with them. The Zionist exploitation of this genocide to justify colonization, displacement and apartheid in Palestine is a dishonor to those who survived and those who did not. The refrain “Never Again” must mean “Never Again, for Anyone!”
IJAN’s “Never Again for Anyone” work aims to make connections between the current environment of Islamophobia, other forms of xenophobia, political repression and support for Israel. The work draws on the parallels between the political contexts of dehumanization and political repression in Nazi Germany, Palestine, and the West.

On the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, we honor Hajo Meyer’s life and his commitment to the liberation of all people suffering dehumanization.
Below is a video in honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day articulating the vision of “Never Again for Anyone” as lifted up by 350 survivors and descendants of survivors and victims of the Nazi genocide who published a letter in the New York Times during Israel’s 2014 massacre in Gaza.
The video features footage of Hajo Meyer, a survivor of Auschwitz, and the lead signatory to the letter, who passed away the evening before it ran.
On August 28th, 2014, The Jewish Daily Forward published an outrageous op-ed by Alvin H. Rosenfeld entitled, “Moral Emptiness of Holocaust Survivors Who Took on Israel”. Rosenfeld’s piece was written in response to a letter published in the New York Times and signed by over forty Jewish survivors and over 300 descendents of Jewish survivors and victims of the Holocaust demanding justice in Gaza. Not only did the Forward provide editorial space to Mr. Rosenfeld, who used it to personally slander and minimize prominent human rights activists, but it then denied the original letter’s signatories an opportunity to respond.
