In June of this year, Adam Milstein toured four Eastern European countries and Germany. Milstein was part of a group of scholars and philanthropists. The countries they visited Poland, Estonia, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, and Germany was where the Nazis had built camps to carry-out what they called, “The final solution to the Jewish problem” more commonly known as the Holocaust.
Isreali by birth Adam Milstein and his family immigrated to the US in 1981. Already holding a BS in Industrial and Business Management from Isreal Institute of Technology Milstein would earn an MBA from USC. To help Isreali-Americans and their children stay in touch with their Jewish heritage the Milstein family founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation and Sifriyat Pijama B’America.
His salary as a managing partner at Hager Pacific Properties makes it possible for Adam Milstein to pursue his philanthropic endeavors. He joined Hager two years after moving to the states. He began his career with the company as a sales agent.
Among the sites, Milstein and his group visited were the Nazi death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau and the Rumbula Forest Memorial. At the latter site, the group paid homage to the over two million Jews who were shot by German death squads. People who lived in the area during the Holocaust helped to precipitate it either by direct collaboration or through silence.
Currently, extremist groups are fostering a rise in anti-Semitism in the US and Europe. In the nations, Adam Milstein visited Holocaust deniers are emulating the methods the Nazis used to dehumanize Jews. Nations that were complicit in carrying out the Final Solution now deny the responsibility their ancestors bear for the Holocaust.
Conditions seem ripe for a second Holocaust. Around the world Jews seem to be turning a blind eye to the parallels between today’s anti-Semitism and the conditions that led to the murder of 6 million Jews during the 1940’s. Milstein implores Jews to stand up to the current evil before it is too late. Adam Milstein argues that supporting Isreal is an essential part of avoiding the implementation of modern Final Solution.
