I will watch the hell out of this because I seriously have no idea how so many people can deny historical facts.

I was friends with a girl in middle school whose dad was a Holocaust denier. I used to get in screaming arguments with him about it. His argument is that there's no way the Nazis could've burned all those bodies and the "rich Jewish community" falsified evidence and spread rumors that people were dying, and most of them were criminals, and blah blah blah. He was a fucking idiot.

WOW. That’s insane. I got to meet two holocaust survivors when my hotel hosted a traveling Holocaust Memorial. They were such nice men and talking to them was a pleasure and honor. Seeing their tattoos was chilling.

lol i can't imagine a grown man and a middle school aged kid arguing about this topic that's pretty sad on his part.

This could be interesting. This is so random but whenever I hear about Holocaust denial I think of that episode of Seventh Heaven where a kid in Simon's class doesn't believe in it bc of his dad so Simon gets his neighbor to come talk to the class (she was a survivor). I didn't even watch that show regularly but I remember that episode.

Simon was my fave. That show was such shit but also not like I can’t explain but it definitely opened my eyes to a lot of things as a kid and was surprisingly progressive (but then super extra about other things that their kids would do, like I watch the middle finger scene when I’m feeling low - I didn’t realize how hilarious it was when I was young)

Me too! Remember when the whole class was sobbing, and when the denier tried to comfort his son the kid slapped his hand away.

This. On one hand I don’t get how people can think that way but any attention is what these horrible people want. Any focus will make them feel validated and I have no doubt they’ll use this to promote themselves and their hate.

Especially because the BBC has had a tendency in the last few years to stay aggressively 'neutral' on topics. Which has more than once come down to them allowing people to share conspiracy theories and easily disprovable bullshit as genuine arguments cause ~~we need to hear both sides~~

Cool will it include Jeremy Corbyn’s association with holocaust deniers?
