EJC PRESIDENT KANTOR APPLAUDS OVERDUE DECISION BY FACEBOOK TO BAN HOLOCAUST DENIAL Print E-mail

(Monday, October 12, 2020) – European Jewish Congress President Dr. Moshe Kantor has welcomed the decision by Facebook to ban Holocaust denial or distortion, and to better inform the public about the Holocaust. 

“This is a long overdue but an important decision,” Dr. Kantor said. “Holocaust denial is not legitimate debate and is only used as an expression of hatred for Jews, so this decision is not about anything except limiting hate and antisemitism.”

Dr. Kantor, who is also the President of the World Holocaust Forum Foundation, welcomed concerted efforts by governments, IT companies and civil society to counter the proliferation of online hatred conspiracy myths and Holocaust denial.

“At a time where antisemitism is on the rise and knowledge about the Holocaust among young people is alarmingly low, it is crucial that online platforms continue to become part of the solution, not the problem,” Dr. Kantor continued.

“This is an issue that the European Jewish Congress has long advocated for, and we thank Facebook for its regular and productive discussions with us and other Jewish organisations, both at the European and global level,” Dr. Kantor concluded.
