A local Jewish organization yesterday denounced an exhibit by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) that compares the slaughter of animals for food to the Holocaust. Adam Solender, executive director of the Jewish Federation of Greater Manchester, said the exhibit displayed in the plaza in front of the State House in Concord yesterday afternoon, “trivialized the memory of millions of innocent victims of the Holocaust.” “It’s an incredible moral equivalency that I think steps over the line,” Solender said. Manchester resident and Holocaust survivor Stephen Lewy said the display was disturbing.

” . . . in World War II, the Nazis compared Jews to animals. PETA is comparing the life of a chicken to that of a human being . . . There is no moral equivalency, never! One cannot compare the suffering and racial genocide of millions of Jews to animals.” [“Jewish group raps PETA exhibit”, Union Leader News, May 23, 2003]

PETA, like Hitler, just did.
