LBI Statement on Ukraine

The Leo Baeck Institute – New York | Berlin joins the Center for Jewish History in standing united with the Ukrainian people as they defend their freedom and right to exist. We hope a peaceful resolution will be achieved quickly.

We also condemn the distortion of the Holocaust to justify the slaughter of innocent lives. History cannot be rewritten to legitimize an unprovoked invasion and occupation of another country.
