2/17/09: Denying the Holocaust
Salt Lake City, UT – When Pope Benedict XVI moved to lift the excommunication of British Bishop Richard Williamson last month, it caused outrage around the world. Williamson denies that the Holocaust happened, and has publicly stated that "there was not one Jew killed by the gas chambers." This may sound like the ranting of an extremist, but consider this: a new poll shows that 44% of Europeans think that Jews probably talk too much about the Holocaust. Tuesday, we're talking about Holocaust denial and its part in the history of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
