B’nai B’rith World Center – Jerusalem Director Alan Schneider responded to AMI Magazine and its questioning of whether Rabbi Moshe Shimon Pessach was truly worthy of the Jewish Rescuers Citation B’nai B’rith posthumously conferred upon him.
In the letter, Schneider writes: “I suggest that we give all the narratives equal credence and not unnecessarily undermine the brave record of Jewish heroes. It is easy enough to raise conjecture 70 years after the fact, but none of the evidence provided by Dr. Medoff has convinced me that our description of Rabbi Pessach’s Holocaust-era bravery needs to be amended.”
