David Kattenburg: Child of Holocaust Survivors
David Kattenburg

As reported in Mondoweiss, David Kattenburg gives his Jewish perspective on the mistreatment of Palestinian families. His view is rooted in being a child of Holocaust survivors. Kattenburg contrasted how his background informed his moral choice in speaking out against the occupation with the use of the Holocaust to support the “defense of their permanent occupation/colonization of the West Bank, their ceaseless acts of land theft, their systematic oppression of the Palestinian people, their right to kill Palestinians, no questions asked, to violate international law with impunity.”

David Kattenburg is a columnist and Winnipeg-based educator and activist and the publisher/editor of Green Planet Monitor. Kattenburg pursued a truthful wine labeling case in the Federal Court of Canada and won the ruling that that “Product of Israel” labels on settlement wines are “false [and] deceptive.” Kattenburg, in Kattenburg v. Canada (Attorney General), sought to make sure that wines produced in Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank were not labelled “Product of Israel.”
