The Holocaust -- the slaughter of 6-1/2 million innocent Jews in the middle of Europe during the 1940's, virtually all of them civilians or children -- was the Greatest Crime in human history. Santayana said: "Those who forget history are condemned to repeat it." Holocaust Denial is a vicious attempt to get people to forget the Holocaust. That would set the stage for a future generation to repeat the Holocaust. Holocaust Denial is a crime because it helps create the conditions in which such a monstrous slaughter can be carried out again. It is also a slanderous Lie which debases the memory of the 6-1/2 million innocent victims.
After World War II, many German civilians pleaded ignorance, claiming they didn't know the Holocaust was taking place under their own noses. Today's Holocaust deniers can't make that claim. Today's perpetrators know the facts and they know full well what they are doing.
