97-Year-Old Holocaust Survivor Receives Anti-Semitic Hate Online


Lily Ebert is a 97-year-old Holocaust survivor and has been overwhelmed with the amount of anti-Semitic hate she’s been receiving online, particularly on the app TikTok. This hate has been ongoing amid the Israel-Palestine conflict. Ebert is a native of Bonyhád, Hungary who was deported to the Auschwitz Nazi death camp in 1944 and runs a TikTok account to answer questions that others have about the Holocaust.

However, her great-grandson has said that her account has been flooded with “vile” messages praising Hitler during the Sabbath. “We will not allow this to stop us from educating about the horror of the past, and what hatred can lead to,” her great-grandson, Dov Forman, tweeted out. “Hate only breeds hate.”

Some of the vile responses include “Can u ask her did Israel exist when she [moved] out of Germany?” and “Ask her if she thinks the treatment of Palestinians reminds her [of] the treatment she got in the camp.”

Other comments included “Happy Holocaust” and “free Palestine.” None of Eberts videos on TikTok were even political or mentioned Israel to any capacity. ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt opens up about some of the anti-Semitic comments he’s been seeing and the rise in them as of recently.

“As the violence between Israel and Hamas continues to escalate, we are witnessing a dangerous and drastic surge in anti-Jewish hate right here at home,” he says. Additionally, the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) found a rise in incidents of harassment, vandalism, and violence from London to Los Angeles. To be specific, some 193 reports of anti-Semitic incidents were received since the conflict broke out in Israel, which was up 131 reports from the previous week.

Ebert was liberated from Auschwitz after being transferred to an ammunition factory in Leipzig, Germany, in 1946.
