Bangkok Post story
Response by Mr. Simon Roded, Ambassador of Israel, to M.L. Roongkun Kitiyakara's post, English Language, Thai Language
While we are not journalists, we want to get more of the story before commenting. Part of our mission is to understand why these incidents happen, and to present a nuanced and in-depth perspective that is culturally sensitive to all.
It is true that Thailand's History curriculum does not cover the Holocaust properly, mysterious propaganda like the photo does emerge from people claiming to be 'educated'. On one of our Thai language videos, we had a comment made that could be summed up as everybody hates the Jews. We are able to delete the comment (as is the poster) but left it on the video to show that the sentiment does exist. The comment also comes from someone that is under eighteen years old.
We will be looking further into this current issue and are also seeking others' perspectives on it. Please let us know if you have something to add! You can email us below or message us on Facebook.
Here are two more links to the story:
