Prince Charles points out that people are forgetting the dangers of World War II and the lessons that were supposed to be carved deep in our soul.
The Prince of Wales spoke at a fundraiser for World Jewish Relief, a humanitarian agency. He remembered the struggle that Ben Helfgott – a Holocaust survivor and former Olympic weightlifting champion – went through.
“The work of World Jewish Relief enables us to rally together to do what we can to support people practically, emotionally and spiritually,” he noted.
“Particularly at a time when the horrific lessons of the last war seem to be in increasing danger of being forgotten”.
Some interpreted the Prince’s comment as his disapproval of the immigration ban that caused so much chaos in our country, reports World Politicus.
President Trump’s executive order suspended the US refugee admissions system for three months. It also suspended the Syrian refugee program indefinitely.
The Prince warned that Helfgott’s struggle should help us remember history for good.
“To meet Ben, and others who, like him, have endured indescribable persecution, is to be reminded of the danger of forgetting the lessons of the past.”
World Jewish Relief’s mission is to help Jews in every part of the world.
“It is about supporting local communities with what they feel they need and not about imposing solutions from outside,” Prince Charles explained.
“World Jewish Relief shows us how vital it is to learn lessons from the horrors of the past,” the Prince added.
Prince Charles sent an important message for Christmas, warning of the “rise of populism” before Americans elected Donald Trump.
He said he was concerned about the “deeply disturbing echoes of the dark days of the 1930s” and “evil” religious persecution that harasses the world, referring to the rise of the far-right in Europe.
