    • ONE-THIRD OF AMERICANS DON'T BELIEVE 6 MILLION JEWS WERE MURDERED DURING THE HOLOCAUST

      One-third of Americans think “substantially less” than 6 million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust, according to a new survey that highlights a worrying lack of basic knowledge about the World War II-era genocide.

      The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, or Claims Conference, released the findings of its survey to coincide with Holocaust Remembrance Day. They show a notable lack of understanding among Americans, especially millennials, the group said.

        • French negationist author Robert Faurisson try to have a newspaper condemned for defamation after the newspaper say "Faurrison lie, falsify history, ...".
          Justice have just decide that the newspaper affirmation were almost true, that M. Faurisson say false thing about the existence of the Shoa. Justice don't say that he lied, but what he say is false.

          This is the guy who explain that gas chamber were built after the war, as a big conspiracy.... He was already condemned in 1991, 1998 and 2006 for denying crime against humanity.
          So now justice has clearly say that he is wrong, he didn't apply true historian methodology ... If he continue to affirm his thesis he can be condemned for lying.

            Faurison, although it disgusts me, can say what he wants. But as he attacked a newspaper calling him a liar and lost, I say "in your face scumbag!"

                        A tough one GB...I don´t know what to think on that one. I would prefer the remembrance to be universal, and I understand the management of the museum.

                          I don't like the sensational headline and analogy ... But, Vingerling has reason to be upset.

                            German memorial finally honors forced laborers of forgotten Nazi camp

                            At least 2,200 prisoners, many of them Hungarian Jews, died at Muehldorfer Hart and were buried on-site in a mass grave

                            • It's not like the Dachau Memorial had spared no thought for those detained at Außenstelle Mühldorfer Hart though. There's actually a very good reason why many KZ-Außenstellen ("affiliated camps") were not meant to be given a dedicated memorial at first, but instead be represented and remembered at the central camp's memorial site: Not only were they connected in that manner anyway, but more importantly, many smallers facilities were destroyed during the war; a few are even located in inaccessible terrain dotted with uxo. Treating them all in the same manner had to seem impossible. The Remembrance Trust didn't want to give rise to the notion of a "hierarchy of remembrance".

                              Ironically, they created one that way, which only goes to show how difficult it is to maintain a dignified culture of remembrance.

                              Speaking of the latter, look at those pictures. Why do all memorial sites have to be so fugly nowadays? No matter the region, no matter the cause, they almost always look like built by kids with too much play-doh on their hands…
