Chanting “white lives matter” and “Jews will not replace us,” several hundred neo-Nazis and white supremacists carrying torches march in a parade through Charlottesville, Virginia on Friday, August 11. Evelyn Hockstein/Washington Post via Getty Images.
In Charlottesville, white supremacists marching last weekend had one group on their minds—Jews. “Jews will not replace us,” they chanted, along with other Nazi and neo-Nazi slogans. Afterward, one of my Facebook friends asked people to post pictures of fathers, grandfathers, and great-grandfathers who had fought against the real Nazi regime. I couldn’t help thinking of my own grandfather.
