"It's a total desecration of the memory of … those that were killed during the Holocaust," said prominent Ottawa lawyer Lawrence Greenspon, who co-chaired Tuesday's commemoration.

The comparisons are "vile," agreed Andrea Freedman, CEO of the Jewish Federation of Ottawa.

Ottawa lawyer Lawrence Greenspon said it's 'incredibly insulting' for protesters to make such comparisons to the plight of European Jews during the Holocaust.

It's offensive to the survivors, and it's offensive to the memory of the six million people who were systematically murdered.".

Protesters wearing yellow stars like those Jews were forced to wear in Nazi-occupied Europe have been seen at demonstrations across Canada.

For Freedman, that distortion is linked both to a general and growing ignorance about the Holocaust.

That's particularly true when it comes to hospital protesters comparing themselves to Frank, who's believed to have died of typhus. »

South Korea's missile test came the same day as North Korea fired a pair of ballistic missiles off its east coast, breaching U.N. sanctions and ratcheting up tension just days after testing a cruise missile with possible nuclear capabilities.

The test would make South Korea the first country without nuclear weapons to field such a missile. »
