In the wake of recent terror attacks in Europe — several of which targeted Jewish institutions — some politicians and religious leaders have predicted an exodus of Jewish people from the continent. In some ways, the numbers stack up. Last year, a record 8,000 Jews arrived in Israel from France — with another 15,000 coming from Eastern Europe.
But some critics argue that reports of Jewish flight are overblown; they accuse Israel of taking advantage of fears in Europe to attract new immigrants and serve the interests of the Israeli state. “We are preparing and calling for the absorption of mass immigration from Europe,” said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in February 2015. “I would like to tell all European Jews and all Jews wherever they are: Israel is the home of every Jew.”
In part two of a three-part series, VICE News travels to Ukraine to meet some of the many Ukrainian Jews who are leaving their war-ravaged homeland for Israel. We meet residents of a makeshift transit camp and attend an information seminar on the benefits of life in the Middle East, both organized by the Jewish Agency for Israel.

BABYN YAR HELPS EXPLAIN HOW A HOLOCUST WAS POSSIBLE (Russian made) 2016 (19.06)
“If we want to understand how a holocaust was possible, it’s Babyn Yar we have to understand;”
✅ Two years after the Babyn Yar massacre, Auschwitz became the main place for killing Jews;
✅ The massacre was a crucial time in the history of the Holocaust.
✅ “It’s the time when the idea of a final solution – that is a vision of a world without Jews becomes the reality, becomes the mechanism, becomes the process, the example of how Jews can actually be killed.”
“If we want to understand how a holocaust was possible, it’s Babyn Yar we have to understand,” says Timothy Snyder, History Professor at Yale University. Babyn Yar is the site of a two-day massacre where 34,000 Kyivan Jews lost their lives on September 28-29, 1941. Two years later, Auschwitz became the main place for killing Jews.
According to the Snyder, the massacre was a crucial time in the history of the Holocaust. After invading the Soviet Union, Germans began killing Ukraine’s Jewish population. Combining their SS with local collaborators, the Germans realized they could “create a moment where tens of thousands can be killed all at once.”
“It’s the time when the idea of a final solution – that is a vision of a world without Jews becomes the reality, becomes the mechanism, becomes the process, the example of how Jews can actually be killed,” he explains.

As long as deep in the heart
The soul of a Jew yearns
And towards the East
An eye looks to Zion
Our hope is not yet lost
The hope of two thousand years
To be a free people in our land
The land of Zion and Jerusalem
