Facebook and Holocaust Denial

with one comment

So apparently there’s a big mess behind the scenes with Facebook refusing to delete groups that revolve around denying this little thing called the Holocaust.
Essentially, Facebook claims that the site is a fair, honest and equal opportunity platform, and as such, it actually encourages such groups, cause their existence is a stage for debate, education etc. etc.
The Jews on the other hand, claim that Holocaust denial is a first-degree family related to this little thing called Anti-Semitism, which is illegal in many Countries. Also, that these hate-groups has no debate, no education – nothing but spreading toxic and inciting harmful, misleading propaganda.

Holocaust denial always fascinated me. I mean, the audacity one must have in order to claim that it was made up is mind-boggling. It actually makes me laugh due to its ridiculousness. With my own eyes, I sat at the foot of a 7 Ton mountain of ashes in Majdanek. I’ve smelled the unmistakable scent of death at Birkenau. Walked through the human-experimentation labs in Auschwitz. I’ve seen the 17,000 tombstones, each representing a different Jewish community, in Treblinka. I felt the cold of Zakopane, and I witnessed the remains of Bergen-Belsen. I heard my grandparents speak, saw numbers tattooed on my neighbor’s hand, visited Anne Frank’s house and even read Frankel’s Search For Meaning. But I guess all of that was a fake, a Hollywood-style production orchestrated by those pesky Jews.

I don’t think it’s right to ask Facebook to take down those hate groups. Dumb fundamentalists were around even before Al Gore, and stopping them from poisoning the World Wide Web won’t eradicate them from the face of this planet. The cure for HD, like always, is education. It’s contributing money for Museums and exhibitions. It’s challenging Holocaust deniers to fly to Poland, so they can behold the evidence. It’s uploading to those same Facebook groups interviews with Holocaust survivors, and with German / Polish witnesses. It’s spreading and showing books, publishing documentaries, filming  movies and creating art that portray those years and all that occurred. It’s investing in Advertising campaigns, PR and educational Marketing. It’s talking, explaining, screaming when needed.

Some people claim that Holocaust never happened. Fix their ignorance, don’t just tell them to shut up.
