How can anyone in their right mind deny the Holocaust ever happened?? I have never quite been able to understand that.
Is is just plain old denial or is it ignorance or is it racism?
This is a good article.

Still scene from “The Desperate”
“Why?” asks the concentration camp prisoner of his Nazi captors. “Why should I help you? You are my enemy.”
So asks the Jewish doctor in “The Desperate,” a new short film from Iranian-born director Ben-Hur Sepehr that defies Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s denial of the Holocaust with a story of forgiveness amid the horrors of a Nazi concentration camp.
The film presents a powerful moral dilemma, as a renowned Jewish doctor, plucked in his tattered, striped clothes from the line of men sentenced to die in the Nazi ovens, is asked by his captors to save the life of the German general’s son, wounded in battle.
Sepehr told WND “The Desperate” was filmed by a coalition of Jews, Germans, Christians, Muslims and atheists dedicated to the organization’s goals. Donations to Tolerance Through Knowledge will fund future projects with a similar purpose.
“Anyone who wants to join us with this endeavor,” Sepehr said, “our arms are open.”
