American Friends of POLIN Museum and the Association of the Jewish Historical Institute of Poland, stand in solidarity with New Zealand in the face of hate. We condemn the senseless violence that took 50 lives and injured 48 others as they were praying in two mosques in Christchurch. If this could happen in New Zealand, a place of refuge from violence elsewhere, it could happen anywhere. That was the shooter’s message. Sowing fear was his aim. Together we must fight hate wherever it rears its ugly head. We mourn with New Zealand and with the families, friends, and loved ones of those who lost their lives.
