ADL to Help Replace Burned Holocaust Library of Sacramento Synagogue Attacked by Arson

New York, NY, June 19, 1999…The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) will assist in replacing the Holocaust collection of books and videos for one of three Sacramento synagogues attacked by arson. Temple B’nai Israel lost its library of thousands of historic Holocaust books, documents and a video collection in the anti-Semitic hate crime attack.

"This anti-Semitic attack shook the entire community and reverberated throughout the country. The attack on Temple B’nai Israel’s library, which contained volumes on the Holocaust, can’t help but remind many of us of the flames that consumed synagogues in Germany in the 1930’s," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director and Holocaust survivor. "Through our ADL Braun Holocaust Institute, we will help replace some of the lost material. While some are irreplaceable, hopefully this effort will assist Temple B’nai Israel on its road to healing."

ADL will provide the congregation with thousands of dollars worth of material to begin the rebuilding process.

Since 1977, the Braun Holocaust Institute has been teaching about the Holocaust era and its impact on contemporary society and culture. The Institute has an internationally renowned comprehensive collection of Holocaust-related materials and an eminent film and video library, the Holocaust Film Library. The Institute has developed extensive Holocaust curricula for schools and organizes teacher training workshops, seminars, public programs and symposiums.

The Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913, is the world's leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.
