Take a stand for the truth
Recently, ABC’s "The View" co-host Whoopi Goldberg said the Holocaust was "not about race" and simply a conflict between “two White groups of people”.
Is this true?
No. The truth is the Nazis insisted the “Jewish race” would permanently corrupt and destroy the German people, and it’s this antisemitic racism that led to the murder of six million Jews by the Nazis and their collaborators.
Whoopi Goldberg’s comments were hurtful to the Jewish community, especially Holocaust survivors, as well as her own and ABC’s reputation. But this doesn't mean she should be canceled. In fact, she publicly admitted she was wrong and apologized.
The question is: what can we reasonably do to prevent this from happening again?
We believe networks like ABC must take responsibility for ensuring their hosts are informed on key facts surrounding fundamental historical events like the Holocaust before going on-air so that outlandish and ignorant comments like those made by Whoopi Goldberg aren’t made in the future.
Do you agree that networks like ABC should be held responsible for what their on-air talent says?
If so, sign our petition and unite with others who demand important history like the Holocaust be factually represented.

The Nazi Party promoted racial antisemitism.
The Nazis’ race-based definition of Jews included many persons who did not actively practice Judaism but had been born to Jewish parents.
The Holocaust refers to the systematic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million European Jews carried out by the Nazis and their collaborators.
