Daniel Lifshitz

Grandson of Yocheved and Oded Lifshitz

Daniel Lifshitz, a 35-year-old wine importer and former soccer player, a man of strong convictions and unwavering determination. As the grandson of Oded and Yocheved Lifshitz, he carries with him a legacy marked by tragedy and resilience.

Growing up in the shadow of the harrowing events that unfolded in Kibbutz Nir Oz, where 117 out of 400 inhabitants were either brutally murdered or violently kidnapped, Daniel’s life has been shaped by the profound impact of loss and captivity. The abduction of his grandparents, Oded and Yocheved, by Hamas on October 7th left an indelible mark on his family and community.

While Yocheved was eventually returned after 16 days, Oded remains in captivity, a painful reminder of the ongoing struggle for freedom and justice. Fueled by a relentless drive to seek justice and secure the release of all hostages, Daniel dedicates his days to working at the Civil HQ and spearheading the “Bring them home now” campaign.

In addition to his advocacy work, Daniel travels extensively, rallying support and raising awareness for the plight of hostages worldwide. His commitment to picking up every stone in the pursuit of freedom echoes his unwavering dedication to the cause.

Daniel Lifshitz’s story is one of courage, perseverance, and a steadfast belief in the power of hope and action. Through his tireless efforts, he embodies the spirit of resilience and solidarity, standing as a beacon of strength for those still held captive and a voice for those who have been silenced by injustice.

Special Envoy Lipstadt has a storied career as a historian, academic, and author.

The case, which lasted for six years and was heard in court in a twelve-week trial, resulted in Irving being declared by the court to be “a right-wing polemicist,” who engages in antisemitism, racism, and misogyny. That trial was depicted in the 2016 film Denial, which was based on her book History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier.

Special Envoy Lipstadt was a historical consultant to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, helping design the section of the Museum dedicated to the American Response to the Holocaust.
