Yad Vashem to Educate Iran About Holocaust With Farsi YouTube Channel


holocaust-survivorsYad Vashem Holocaust memorial has launched a version of its YouTube channel in Farsi to educate Iran about the Nazi genocide of over 6 million Jews during World War II.

Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has reiterated his opinion that the Holocaust is a myth and said Israel should be wiped off the map. The country also hosted a conference several years ago questioning whether the Holocaust took place.

The YouTube channel was announced on Sunday to coincide with the United Nation’s upcoming annual Holocaust remembrance day.

The chairman of the Yad Vashem memorial said he hoped the site would allow viewers to connect to the Holocaust on a personal level, separate from regional politics.

Yad Vashem already has YouTube channels in English, Hebrew, Arabic, Russian and Spanish.

  1. why in the world does iran need to be educated about the holocaust? if thier prsident believs that it is all a myth then most probably the people believe so too. and besides, even if iran does hear all about it, they would be happy about it saying that hitler did a good job and he should have reached israel which would mean an end to all thier so called “problems”.
