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.”
