Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea Explains Why He’s So Sensitive About Holocaust

Red Hot Chilli Peppers bassist Flea shared a post on his official Instagram account drawing attention to his sensitivity to Holocaust that should never be forgotten since his mother taught him all about the Holocaust and not to forget about it in addition to showing his support for his Jewish brothers and sisters.

As many of you know, The Holocaust was the World War II genocide of the European Jews between 1941 and 1945, across German-occupied Europe, Nazi Germany and its associates murdered six million Jews, around two-thirds of Europe’s Jewish population.

International Holocaust Remembrance Day is an international memorial day which is held annually on 27 January that remembers the victims of the Holocaust, the genocide of European Jews by Nazi Germany between 1941 and 1945.

Since Flea is Jewish who stands by his roots, he recently shared a post on his official Instagram page remembering the Holocaust Remembrance Day by supporting his Jewish brothers and sisters. In addition to this Flea revealed that his mother taught him all about the Holocaust along with teaching him not to forget about the cruelty which his people had to go through.

Here is what Flea said:

“Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day. Just over 80 years ago 6 million Jewish people were rounded up and murdered by the nazis. Hard to fathom the shattered families and the loss. It’s not that long ago. Standing with my Jewish brothers and sisters today to always remember. When I was a little boy my mother taught me about the Holocaust and told me NEVER FORGET, always stand for the love of your fellow human beings.”
