Post categories:

Robin Lustig | 13:20 UK time, Monday, 9 March 2009

Avraham Burg is a former Speaker of the Israeli Knesset (parliament) and former chairman of the World Zionist Organisation. He's written a highly controversial book arguing that it's time for Israelis (and Jews elsewhere) to "get over" the Holocaust. The book is called "The Holocaust Is Over; We Must Rise from Its Ashes". You can hear my interview with him here.
