In answer to the Walla! On US President Joe Biden's remarks about making a distinction between widespread invasion or "small invasion," Stepanchuk said he supported Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zalanski's statement that there is no such thing as petty invasions. He added that "like in the Holocaust not talking about numbers, there are facts, and we do not want anything to happen."
At a conference held as part of the fight against anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial ahead of the International Holocaust Remembrance Day in Babi Yar in Kiev, the president of the Association of Jewish Organizations, Rabbi Menachem Margolin, said, "It can not remain history lessons because it is not history. "It still exists but continues to grow from year to year. There are still people today who hate Jews no less than Hitler hated us then."
Margolin, a well-known rabbinical figure in European countries, added that "there are countries in Europe today that because of the rise in anti-Semitism and laws against kosher food or circumcision, Jewish life in them becomes impossible."
He argued that "this must not be allowed to happen."
Margolin added that "many ask why it is not enough to learn a little about the Holocaust in history classes in schools. Why memorial events are needed, and that is the answer to that."
