Holocaust Marked in Arab World in Two Events, but Denial Still Persists

FSWC Reports:

From Tazpit News Agency via

Two unusual events relating to Holocaust remembrance took place in the Arab world in December 2013: A first official conference on the Holocaust was held in Tunisia, dealing with Holocaust of the Jews of Tunisia, and the first visit by an Arab diplomat to a Holocaust memorial site, when Bahraini ambassador to France Nasser Al-Balushi visited a memorial in Drancy, near Paris. 

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) reports that on December 14, 2013, Tunisia held the Arab world's first official Holocaust conference. The two-day conference, attended by historians, clerics, authors, and journalists, dealt with the Tunisian Jewish Holocaust, and its purpose was to commemorate the 5,000 Tunisian Jews who were sent to labor camps or European death camps during the Nazi rule of the country.
