Holocaust & LGBTQ Equality (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, February 21, 2022

This week I talked with actor-activist Yuval David about his involvement with The Shoah Foundation. Yuval is the first descendant of Holocaust survivors to be interviewed by The Shoah Foundation for its Next Generation Project which is a series telling the survivors' stories from their children & grandchildren's perspective. The Shoah Foundation was founded in 1994 by filmmaker Stephen Spielberg to videotape & preserve interviews with survivors & other witnesses of the Holocaust. In his video testimony Yuval a celebrated & award-winning actor, host, director & filmmaker shares how his grandmother & grandfather told their Holocaust survival story to The Shoah Foundation while he was growing up with a special focus on how their lives & experiences inspired his own. The Shoah Foundation’s Visual History Archive at the University of Southern California is one of the largest digital collections of its kind in the world. The Next Generation Project tells the stories passed down through generations emphasizing the power of history & how the experiences of survivors affect the lives of their descendants. Inspired by his grandparents & family Yuval has engaged in Jewish advocacy & helping other marginalized & victimized people as his duty to help his people, his community & all those in need. As an impassioned public speaker, social & LGBTQ activist he has partnered with US, Israeli & international organizations as a keynote speaker, ambassador & advocate collaborating in their mutual initiatives. I talked to Yuval about his impression of the rise of Anti-Semitism globally & his spin on our LGBTQ issues. LISTEN
