Jared Kushner Stays Silent, His Grandmother Didn’t

While Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner stays silent, his grandmother spoke out about being banned from the US.

An interview with the late grandmother of Donald Trump’s son-in-law and close aide Jared Kushner has re-emerged in which she describes her anguish over America’s refusal to accept Jews fleeing the Holocaust.

 

She could be talking about today.

Rae Kushner was one of the only members of her family to survive the second world war. She talks about the difficulties she faced as a Nazi-era Jewish refugee and criticises the US – beset by an anti-immigrant sentiment at the time – for its reluctance to take people in.
