Quotation from Abba Eban “The June (1967) map a memory of Auschwitz” — Nov. 5 1969

Interview by the periodical Der Spiegel. Since 1969, Zionist publications have summarized this quote with the expression "Auschwitz Borders" to talk about what Israel would have been like before 1967, in order to justify the occupation. This absurd expression was repeated by Israeli ministers (Uri Landau, Zeev Elkin) after 2010.

Author : Thematics :

We have openly said that the map will never again be the same as on June 4, 1967. For us, this is a matter of security and of principles. The June map is for us equivalent to insecurity and danger. I do not exaggerate when I say that it has for us something of a memory of Auschwitz.
