Holocaust Survivor Takes Action to Prevent Further Suffering for All Sentient Beings

Do you know this guy? That's right! It's our very own founder of Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM), Alex Hershaft! This week we highlight Alex as he is featured in publication Jewish Exponent, as he talks about his emotional experience as a survivor of the Holocaust and how that led to his animal rights advocacy today. "He couldn't dismiss the similarities [of the Holocaust victims and the treatment farmed animals today]—the branding/tattooing of victims, the cattle cars, the crowded housing, the arbitrary designation of who lives and dies..." Hershaft said in the interview. "Oppressing animals is the gateway drug to oppressing humans...as a survivor, I have made a choice. I have chosen against silence. I have chosen against oppression. I have chosen life."
