Perusing the news

February 20, 2006 1:11 pm

A couple of fascinating aspects to today’s story about a British man who was convicted in Austria of being a Holocaust-denier.   The most coherent article is from Deutsche Welle (don’t worry, it’s in English), but check out the list at the bottom of the BBC’s article. What a statement it makes, that all these countries have laws against denying the Holocaust – the three major German-speaking countries are on the list, as are pretty much all of the places into which the Nazis tried to expand in WWII, plus Israel.  Even France is on the list, though the U.K. naturally is not.
