Arab Holocaust centre reaches out

Arab Holocaust centre reaches out

An interesting attempt at understanding and an attempt to address the Holocaust denial issue decoupled from blind apologia for Israel. There may not be a receptibe audience, unfortunately:

Even though Palestinians are taught about the Holocaust in school, the continuing Israeli occupation means that many Palestinians find it difficult to sympathise with Jewish suffering, says Dr Sami Adwan, a professor of education at Bethlehem University.

"And there is feeling that the Holocaust could undermine the Palestinians international status as victims - that the horror of the Holocaust is so big that it could overpower our own suffering."
