“...there are few countries that don’t bear some culpability for the crime of the Holocaust..... We know the perpetrators – but they were not just Germans and Austrians. There was complicity in practically every country in Europe.”

In 2020 he stated that "Speeches are not enough to stop antisemitism" and "called for greater legislation to police hate crime."[5]
