The Algemeiner

American Jewish artist and Nazi supporter Gertrude Stein  was cited yesterday in a White House proclamation in honor of Jewish American Heritage Month 2012

The official release which praises Jewish contributions to American society includes the following statement, “Their history of unbroken perseverance and their belief in tomorrow’s promise offers a lesson not only to Jewish Americans, but to all Americans. From Aaron Copland to Albert Einstein, Gertrude Stein to Justice Louis Brandeis.”

Stein, who’s exhibition currently on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, was strongly criticized by Harvard Law Professor [Alan Dershowitz] in an Algemeiner column yesterday, where he wrote, “Gertrude Stein was herself a major collaborator with the Vichy regime and a supporter of its pro-Nazi leadership.”
