The Biography and Successes of Viatcheslav Moshe Kantor
Viatcheslav Moshe Kantor is a public figure who was born in Russia. At the moment, Kantor is a leader in a number of organizations. Because of his many business interests, he has made it to the list of the most wealthy people in Russia. He is famous for his efforts of fighting racism, anti-Semitism as well as neo-Nazism. He has been successfully involved in many endeavours to improve the quality of life for the Jews around the world. Below is a list of the best of his successes.
Fighting For Reconciliation and Tolerance
Moshe Kantor has been extensively involved in efforts geared towards encouraging reconciliation and tolerance across all Europe. He founded the European Council on tolerance and reconciliation (ECTR). The society is made up of former heads of state across Europe and also Nobel Prize laureates who work towards promotion of understanding and peace. This is accomplished through fighting religious and ideological extremism, discouragement of racial wars and attacks as well as coming up with initiatives aimed at fostering understanding between the different cultures in Europe and around the world.
Taking Part in the Jewish Council Leadership
The reason why The European Jewish Council was formed was so that the rights and privileges of the Jews around Europe can be defended. The objectives of the council are achieved by setting up commemoration for events that happened in the past in which the Jews were involved such as the Holocaust. Such occurrences are commemorated so that people would not forget the past and end up doing exactly what was done then. Through this organization, Kantor works hard to improve Jewish life by setting up programs that support and reinforce the Jewish culture and way of life. He has served as the president of the council since 2007.
Participation in the Nuclear Disarmament Program
Kantor is the founder and president of the International Luxembourg Forum on Preventing Nuclear Catastrophe. The organization is actively involved in discouraging the accumulation of nuclear weapons by states around the world. This is done through nuclear security discussion forums and policy drafting to persuade nuclear empowered nations to consider demobilization in an endeavour to pursue global peace. And because the nuclear war threat is real, the forum works with world governments in taking this threat seriously, as well as providing a links to reliable sources of information regarding this danger.
Promotion of Art
In addition to these achievements, Moshe Kantor created the Museum Of Avant-Garde Mastery in 2001 which is located in Moscow, Russia. This museum was created so as to protect Russian art, and it presently contains among the most known pieces of art of the Russian avant-garde of the 20th century. The history of the former Russian empire for the period 1890 and 1930 is thus preserved in the gallery.
