Distortion of genocide ‘leaves a window open’ for extremism and hate speech, expert says   

Questioning details and attempting to distort actual history – its chronology or statistics – are just a few examples of Holocaust or genocide denial.  Often, that “leaves a window open … creates oxygen in the room for extremism” and it is a signal of “prejudice, racist and antisemitic beliefs”. 

That’s the view of Sara Brown, Executive Director of Chhange, the Centre for Holocaust, Human Rights and Genocide Education, in New Jersey, United States.  She spoke to Ana Carmo of UN News about the importance of education and counter the hate narratives.
