Watch – ‘Six Million More’: Holocaust Memorial event in Arkansas interrupted by neo-Nazis
A Holocaust Memorial event in Russellville, Arkansas was interrupted by a group of neo-Nazis waving swastikas and chanting “Six Million More” as they marched down the street.
The March of Remembrance in Russellville was disrupted by local Neo-Nazi group Shieldwall, whose members said they were demonstrating in support of a university professor accused of anti-Semitism.
Joyce Griffis, who has organized the Holocaust remembrance day event in Russellville for years said: “It made me feel terrible, it made me feel terrible for my friends. They were talking to us like we were pieces of nothing.”
Sir Beryl Wolfson, a 96-year-old World War II veteran, was invited to speak at the event.
Wolfson says he saw the liberation of the death camps with his own eyes. He says he’s traveled all over the state sharing his story for a reason.
“Never forget, because it could happen again, and I’m trying to get this out to the people so it won’t happen again in any place, ” Wolfson said.
