TransAct 17

TransAct Statement

As a first generation American, whose father, born in Vienna, received, at age 13 a document, with a large Jewish Gold Star, and this identity card meant that he and all his family would die in the gas chambers. He alone, from all my fathers' family, escaped alive. So, from this very personal perspective, not to mention the larger stupidity and horror that is racism, I express my profound fear and dismay at the political move to the right in Austria.
