Hitler's 1936 Olympics antics are a lesson for helping China's Uyghurs

  Hitler's 1936 Olympics antics are a lesson for helping China's Uyghurs More than ever, the ugly truths of the Holocaust speak to choices challenging all of us today.This Yom Hashoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day - which begins at sunset today and ends with a Days of Remembrance commemoration on Thursday - presents many pressing issues, including surging anti-Semitism.
