Belarusian President Says The 'Whole World Bows' To The Jews Because Of The Holocaust

During a recent memorial service for Soviet soldiers who fell during World War II, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko claimed that the “whole world bows” to the Jews because of the Holocaust:

“Jews were able to make the world remember [the Holocaust], and the whole world bows to them, being afraid of saying one wrong word to them,” said Lukashenko. “On our part, we, being tolerant and kind, did not want to hurt anyone’s feelings and let the things down to the point when they have have started to hurt us.”

The speech focused on the role of Belarussians in fighting the Nazis alongside Soviet forces, with the Belarussian president stressing that more work was needed to ensure that people remember Belarus’s part in World War II. “This work has already begun with the investigation into the crimes of Nazism on the Belarusian soil. This is akin to the Holocaust of the Belarusian people,” said Lukashenko.

Some 800,000 Jews (90% of the Jewish population) were killed in Belarus during the Holocaust, according to the European Jewish Congress. While in some other countries, the local population helped the Nazis massacre local Jews, Belarussians did not do the same and several individuals and small groups even helped protect Jews, according to Facing History and Ourselves.
