Last Monday on The View, Whoopi Goldberg inaccurately stated that the Holocaust was “not about race, but rather “man’s inhumanity to man” and that Jews and Nazis were just “two white groups of people”. Although she’s since apologized for her remarks, the network has suspended her for two weeks.

Fred Marcus grew up in Berlin, escaped from Nazi Germany to Shanghai, survived the deprivations of the ghetto, arrived in the U.S. and became a noted Denver educator. His story of triumph over tribulation may have been lost to generations if not for a soon-to-be-launched website, Witness to History, which chronicles the lives of survivors who made Colorado their home after the Holocaust.

Following the backlash from CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky’s recent comments, disability advocates say her remarks weren’t an “error” or “bad editing,” but the result of how ableist thinking devalues the lives of the chronically ill and disabled people.
