Netflix, the streaming service for films and television, has released a statement on Twitter condemning antisemitism and Holocaust denial.
The tweet, posted on Monday, read: “We stand united against antisemitism in all its forms, including the worrying increase in hate crimes and Holocaust denial. We must never forget that appalling chapter in human history.”
Accompanying the statement was a link to The Last Days, a documentary that focusses on the Nazi concentration camps and the lives of Holocaust survivors.
Netflix’s statement follows the recent surge in antisemitism that has continued across the United States.
According to new research conducted by the ADL, antisemitic incidents in the United States were more than double in May 2021 than they were in May 2020.
Addressing the increase in Jew-hatred, President Joe Biden said: “The recent attacks on the Jewish community are despicable, and they must stop. I condemn this hateful behaviour at home and abroad — it’s up to all of us to give hate no safe harbour.”
Vice President Kamala Harris added: “The surge in antisemitic attacks against the Jewish community in the U.S. and around the world is despicable—it must be called out, condemned, and stopped. As a country, we must stand united against hate of any kind.”
