The Holocaust resulted in the annihilation of much of Eastern Europe’s Jewish population. In many countries, no Jews were left to care for the Jewish communal properties. This destruction, desecration, and deterioration of properties continued under Communist regimes. This lecture discusses the challenge of protecting these sites and the threat to Jews worldwide from the growing threat of Holocaust deniers.

The most serious threat confronting the world today is the potential marriage of religious extremism with weapons of mass destruction.
