Holocaust denial has gone global. And it’s all thanks to Facebook – Denial began as a far right project to rehabilitate Nazism. But thanks to social media giants’ intentional apathy, its anti-Semitic lies have spread across the political spectrum – and across the globe | haaretz.com
What is Holocaust denial?
The answer to this question may seem obvious to Haaretz readers and to the impressive roster of world leaders gathering at Yad Vashem this week for the Fifth World Holocaust Forum, marking 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz.
Holocaust denial is a vile assault on the memory of the six million Jews murdered by Nazi Germany and its accomplices, a depraved twisting of the anti-Semitic knife. We must be unstinting in our efforts to keep the memory of our lost relatives – and the historical record – alive.
