Far-right activity at universities rising as more young people deny Holocaust, experts warn

Far-right activity on university campuses is rising and Holocaust denial is becoming more prevalent among the younger generation, experts say.

As the number of Holocaust survivors continues to decline, and their first-hand testimonies will no longer be heard, the situation is likely to get worse, anti-racist researchers have warned.

Holocaust denial leaflets and posters, as well as antisemitic graffiti including swastikas, have emerged on campuses across the UK in recent years as more far-right activists target students.

The warnings come as data, collected by The Independent, shows that antisemitic incidents were reported at 19 UK universities between 2015 and 2017, with the number nearly tripling in two years.

And there are concerns that the scale of the problem could be much greater due to underreporting, as experts say that antisemitic remarks made online often cannot be easily tracked and tackled.

1. 74 Years ago today - January 27, 1945 is when Auschwitz was liberated -

7000 prisoners in the camp including 700 children were set free by the Soviet army. The Germans had moved out up to 60,000 inmates - those still fit enough to walk as they retreated.

1689 days of mass murder, suffering and pain was over. MILLIONS of souls were murdered and MILLIONS suffered.
