The Holocaust Story

If the Holocaust was an event in history, it should be open to the routine critical examination to which all other historical events are open. Those who feel it right to argue against the “unique monstrosity” of the Germans should be free to do so. No one should be imprisoned for thought crimes. Contrary to how Hollywood and the Israeli-Firsters have it, the Holocaust story is not about Jews. It’s about Jews and Germans together, inseparable, for all time to come.

HOLOCAUST DENIAL WIDESPREAD IN RUSSIA

Jewish Telegrapahic Agency

Report: Holocaust denial widespread in Russia

Holocaust denial is a widespread phenomenon in Russia, especially on the Internet, a report said.
At least four Russian Web sites are devoted to Holocaust denial, according to the report published on the eve of international Holocaust Memorial Day.

According to the report, by the Moscow-based Holocaust Foundation and the Moscow Bureau on Human Rights, one of the Web sites, www.revisio.msk.ru, contains 400 pieces of Holocaust revisionist writings and video clips. Holocaust-denying books are also widely available at Russian book stores, the study said.

In a related development, human rights and Jewish activists have called on federal authorities to designate Jan. 27 as Holocaust Remembrance Day in Russia. There has been no reaction from officials.
