Refugees on trains bring back harsh memories for Germans

Israeli politicians aren’t the only ones seeing parallels between the Holocaust and the refugee crisis in Europe.

Eliezer Noy, head of Germany’s Ezer Mizion organization, tells Israel’s Walla News that seeing refugees arriving in Munich on trains dredged up harsh memories.

“In Jewish eyes it looks very bad, There are separate carraiages for migrants and they are very full. There were almost 1,000 people on one train. They descended from the train with a lot of personal belongings and bags, and that was reminiscent of pictures from Jewish history. Dozens of German police are escorting them and taking them to be checked out and from there to temporary camps,” he says.
