It’s time for the Jewish community to shift focus away from the Holocaust,  American-Israeli actress Natalie Portman opined Friday, stating that such focus has detracted from atrocities committed around the world.

“I think a really big question the Jewish community needs to ask itself, is how much at the forefront we put Holocaust education, ” Portman stated in an interview with the British Independent. “Which is, of course, an important question to remember and to respect, but not over other things.”

Portman revealed that her views stemmed from her learning about the Rwandan Genocide.

“I was shocked that that [genocide] was going on while I was in school, ” she said. “We were learning only about the Holocaust and it was never mentioned and it was happening while I was in school.”
