HAMEC Condemns Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg For Not Removing Holocaust Denial Content
June 23, 2018 Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has no plans to stop the dissemination of Holocaust deniers on its platform where 6.8 million impressionable children are using it every month. We call on Zuckerberg to swiftly and permanently ban any and all Holocaust denial content and profiles that promulgate this hatred. It is this type of fake accusations that assist anti-Semitic haters to recruit others who are not yet their supporters. The Holocaust Awareness Museum and Educator Center is dedicated to supporting truthful information about the Holocaust.In the words of Professor Deborah Lipstadt, Dorot Professor of Holocaust Studies at Emory University, “Deniers, who today clearly feel more emboldened than ever before, are not the equivalents of flat-earth theorists, nor are they just plain loonies. As a person who created and provides a platform for the dissemination of information on an awesome scale, Zuckerberg must recognize that theirs is not a cognitive error or a regrettable misinterpretation or failure in judgment that can be rectified by showing them documentation or evidence. They are white supremacists and anti-Semites. Their agenda is to reinforce and spread the very hatred that produced the Holocaust.”We feel this is a teachable moment and reminds us that our mission, educating youth, is never done. Our speakers bureau never rests and never tires of sharing their experiences with students in Philadelphia and the world beyond. This year nearly 37,799 students and adults learned about the Holocaust from our 30 Holocaust survivors, liberators, and resistance fighters. The lessons imparted by our heroes about the consequences of prejudice, hatred, and racism help ensure that tolerance, acceptance and multiculturalism will defend against Holocaust deniers and anti-Semitism. The Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center is the premier provider of Holocaust education programs in the Delaware Valley. The museum is dedicated to educating students about the consequences of intolerance and hate. Each year museum programs provide students with Holocaust survivor presentations, school visits, videos, and plays such as the Anne Frank Theater Project. HAMEC is a non-profit organization supported by grants from the Conference on Material Claims Against Germany, government and foundation grants and private donations.Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center KleinLife, Suite 210
