Governments must outlaw Holocaust revisionism in order to fight a hi-tech, well-financed movement that denies the Holocaust ever occurred, a group of Jewish legal experts said yesterday.
“The denial movement has a historical institute which is reviewing history and whose real aim is to deny the Holocaust,” said Itzhak Nener, an Israeli who is deputy president of the International Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists.
“They have tremendous sums of money.”
During World War II, Nazi Germany rounded up about six million Jews and exterminated them at death camps.
