Holocaust Denial

The Holocaust was the state-organized genocide of around six million European Jews by the National Socialists during World War II. Although the Holocaust is a historical fact, there are conspiracy theorists, especially in far-right circles, who attempt to reinterpret history: The systematic persecution and annihilation of Jews and other Holocaust victims is portrayed as an invention or exaggerated significantly. Historical evidence, such as Holocaust survivors, documents, photos, and testimonies, has been deemed falsified or manipulated in their eyes. However, this is not only nonsense but also pure anti-Semitism. To prevent further suffering by spreading such false claims, Holocaust denial is treated as an offense not protected by freedom of opinion and expression.
