Statement by the Board of Directors of TOLI on Ukraine

TOLI strongly condemns the Russian invasion of Ukraine, an unprovoked assault that has brought incalculable suffering and loss of life to the people of Ukraine.  We deplore President Putin’s justification for the attack as “denazification,” a gross distortion of Holocaust history applied to a democratic country whose Jewish president lost family in the Holocaust.
We stand in support of our partners in Kyiv, dedicated educators of the Holocaust and genocide, and all those in Ukraine who strive to build their nation based on democratic rule and the principles of human rights.
