The Latin American Jewish Congress has warned that Holocaust denial on the internet was growing and has launched the campaign 'Six Million - Never Again' to combat this dangerous phenomenon.
350 negationist Spanish-language videos posted on the internet received 10,000,000 views alone, according to the LAJC's Observatorio Web. "If we don't remember what happened, the victims die a second death, and this could open the possiblity for another Holocaust," said Claudio Epelman, executive director of the Buenos Aires-based Latin American branch of the World Jewish Congress. "The internet is a place for information and communication, but it is nowadays also a platform for spreading hatred and discrimination," Epelman added.
Ariel Seidler, director of the Observatorio Web, declared: "We not only need to denounce these sites and videos because they sow hatred. Instead, we need to promote a positive content."
The LAJC has set up a special website where problematic videos can be reported.
