President Obama appointed Norm Eisen to serve as US Ambassador in the very same country where his mother’s family was decimated in the Holocaust.

“The house in which the United States Ambassador lives…was built by a Jewish family and taken over by the [Nazis]… We returned…and put mezuzahs on the door, made the kitchens kosher, observed the Sabbath there. And every time I ate a kosher lamb chop there I would say ‘take that Hitler!'”
