Moments after she was born in a wartime Nazi concentration camp in Belgrade, Estera Bajer was furtively smuggled out in a bag. Nearly eight decades on, she has one wish: to live to see a memorial built at the site where her mother and some 7,000 other Jewish women, children and elderly people were taken to their deaths during the Holocaust. The former camp, known as Staro Sajmiste, sits on prime real estate in the Serbian capital, flanking the left bank of the Sava river across from the city’s historic heart.

The Poway Synagogue Shooting Is Dividing The American Jewish Community (HBO)

Last Saturday, a 19 year-old white supremacist walked into a synagogue and started shooting.

On Monday, Laurie Gilbert-Kaye was laid to rest, as her family, and an entire community, looked on.

In some ways, this attack has inspired members of the Jewish community to come together as they mourn. But it also seems to be causing division, as people argue over who is to blame for the rise in antisemitism.

To liberals, much of the blame lies with President Trump’s wink-wink relationship with the alt-right. But for those on the right, especially in the largely conservative community of Poway, the left’s criticism of Israel is a big part of the problem.

One of the focal points of this debate has been Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who has recently been accused of antisemitism for her remarks about Israel.

This quickly became a wider political debate outside of the Jewish community – a day after the shooting, members of Congress, including Senator Ted Cruz and Congressman Chip Roy essentially blamed the attack on Omar.

But leftists have accused the right of using the tragedy as a way to silence critics of Israel.

VICE News visited Poway to hear more about how politics are affecting how a community deals with tragedy.
