Nobel laureate Jose Saramago said the Jewish people no longer deserves “sympathy for the suffering it went through during the Holocaust.” Saramago, who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1998, said Monday in Brazil that “living under the shadows of the Holocaust and willing to be forgiven for anything they do on behalf of what they have suffered seems abusive to me. They didn’t learn anything from the suffering of their parents and grandparents.”
