London - Former Chief Rabbi Says Britain Must Emulate Kindertransport In Addressing Refugee Crisis In Europe
London - Former Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks says that Great Britain must extend a humanitarian gesture along the lines of Kindertransport in doing its part to help aid the refugee crisis currently ongoing in Europe.
THEGUARDIAN.com (http://bit.ly/1VD9fCd) reports that Lord Sacks made his comments during an interview on BBC2’s Newsnight on Thursday, saying, “Europe is being tested as it has not been tested since the second world war … The European Union was created as a way of saying that we recognize human rights, after the catastrophe of two world wars and the Holocaust, and it’s very chilling to see some of these scenarios being re-enacted.”
Sacks said that with a collaborative effort from churches, religious groups, and charities he believes the UK could take in as many as 10,000 refugees and that “we would all be better for doing that.”
