Natalie Portman compares meat eating to Holocaust in PETA video

Animal rights activist and actress Natalie Portman compared the consumption of meat to the atrocities of the Holocaust in a new video for PETA.  In the two-minute video,   Portman highlights the life and legacy of author and Nobel Prize laureate Isaac Bashevis Singer by sharing some of his well-known quotes honoring his activism for animal rights.

“Nowadays, many of us speak up for animals, but it wasn’t always like this,” the actress says in the beginning of the video. “Decades ago, one man articulated the plight of animals so boldly that the modern world couldn’t ignore him.”

"We do to God’s creatures what the Nazis did to us," Portman quoted from Singer's novel, "Shosha."
