World news – Daily briefing April 8th – How ToI’s Holocaust correspondent plumbs the depths


Welcome to the Times of Israel Daily Briefing: Your 15-minute audio update on what is happening in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World, Sunday through Thursday.

In honor of Yom Hashoah, Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day, today’s episode is dedicated to a conversation with Matt Lebovic, longtime Holocaust correspondent for the Times of Israel, who speaks to its editor, Amanda Borschel-Dan.

Lebovic explains how growing up a third generation survivor in a house with muffled whispers and ubiquitous shame every time the Holocaust was mentioned led him to quench his curiosity at an early age. He studied dozens of books on the subject and began a lifelong quest to make the subject relevant to society today.

We discuss how Lebovic discovered his paternal grandmother in the famous « Auschwitz Album », a collection of Nazi photographs of transports processed from Hungary.

Lebovic explores his obsession with Anne Frank and explains his further journey to visit as many Nazi camps and transit stations as possible.

Finally, we discuss how he tries to tie the lessons of the Holocaust to today’s headlines.

I’m telling you the truth: life here in Israel is not always easy. But it’s full of beauty and meaning.
