Khamenei releases Holocaust denial video

January 27 is Holocaust Remembrance Day, the UN-mandated commemoration of the Nazis’ industrial-scale slaughter of 6 million Jews and another 5 million members of various other minority groups during World War II.


But Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei used the occasion to post an English-subtitled video on his website, which questioned whether the Holocaust happened at all.


The three-minute video is called “Are the Dark Ages Over?” and features audio of a March 2014 speech, during which the Iranian leader claimed, “No one in European countries dares to speak about the Holocaust, while it is not clear whether the core of this matter is reality or not. Even if it is reality, it is not clear how it happened.”
