Daughter of Holocaust Survivor Manhandled While Ejected From Roger Waters Concert

LBC reports on another incident at Roger Waters’ London concert:

The daughter of a Holocaust survivor was ejected from Roger Waters’ controversial show at the O2 Arena London as the singer continues to face accusations that his performance is anti-semitic.

The controversial show was hosted by the O2 Arena in Greenwich, south east London, on Wednesday night.

London’s show was subject to protests by Jewish activists, who chanted: “Hey Roger leave us Jews alone.”

During protests inside the arena, the daughter of a Holocaust survivor was reportedly tackled by securities and booted out of the performance following a series of protests.

The “daughter of a Holocaust survivor” is none other than Israellycool reader Yochy Davis (who is also acting as an ambassador for our fundraising campaign).

Yochy tells me:

We demonstrated outside the O2 for 2 days running (with the help of Herut UK, Likud UK and NJA), but felt it wasn’t enough, since Waters still wore the SS uniform and compared the journalist to Anne Frank (who my father went to school with), which is a massive step too far.

My father’s family all survived Bergen Belsen and I grew up within the shadow of the Holocaust and what they had gone through.

My son managed to find my grandparents’s graves in the Jewish cemetery just outside Amsterdam. My grandfather was the Rabbi of a small town called Viroshov in Poland.

The whole family survived Bergen Belsen and some went back to Holland where they were buried.

Waters dresses like a Nazi…he acts like one …he is one. He shouldn’t be allowed to perform anywhere in SS uniform.

He has a massive following of Pink Floyd lovers but also many antisemites.

The truth must be told. I won’t be silenced.

So we went inside to wave two flags: a large, six foot one which said “Hey Roger leave us Jews alone!”, and another that said “Hey Roger leave Anne Frank alone!”

We were handled very roughly considering I’m a 60-year-old grandma. I kept telling the guy he was hurting me, but he didn’t care.

The big shame is I grew up on Pink Floyd and love the music. Waters ruined it for me.

Waters may be the well-known rocker, but it is the Yochy’s of the world who truly rock.
