B’nai B’rith International sent a letter to Czech Republic Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka expressing deep concern, and requesting an apology, for disturbing comments by Justice Minister Helena Valkova about the Holocaust in Czechoslovakia.

In the letter from B’nai B’rith President Allan J. Jacobs and Executive Vice President Daniel S. Mariaschin, they write: “Her claim that, ‘Not that much happened’ during the Nazi occupation of the country shocked and saddened us, as it clearly minimized the tragic loss of tens of thousands of Czech Jews.”
