Holocaust survivor: Israel is turning Gaza into a 'death camp'

November 15, 2023

Suzanne Weiss, a Jewish Holocaust survivor, socialist activist and author of Holocaust to Resistance, gave this speech at a 25,000-strong November 4 Palestine solidarity rally in Toronto, Canada, where she called for an immediate ceasefire and for an end to the genocide in Gaza.

“Gas chambers and the hundreds of concentration camps which starved, tortured, and eliminated Jews by disease, is repeated today in the Gaza concentration camp — the largest concentration camp in the world!

“Death chambers and ovens have been replaced in Gaza with tons of bombs that destroys all in their path. Gaza has become a death camp,” Weiss said, condemning Zionism as racist colonialism.

“Conflating Zionism and Judaism is an unforgiveable crime to the Jewish people, to the Palestinians and to humanity,” Weiss added.
