United Nations Civil Society Briefing "Hate speech, Holocaust denial and distortion: why challenging it matters"

Date: 30 January 2020
Time: 11 a.m.- 12:30 p.m.
Contact: HolocaustRemembrance@un.org
      RSVP
Holocaust denial and distortion dismisses the irrefutable and established facts that the Holocaust happened and belittles the suffering of the victims and survivors of the atrocities perpetrated by the Nazis and their accomplices. Denial and distortion of history is an important tool in the arsenal of hate speech. Hate speech encourages the dehumanization of individuals and groups and is used to justify discrimination and other acts of violence. 2020 marks 75 years since the end of the Second World War, and the Holocaust, yet antisemitism continues to occur. This briefing will provide an historical overview of Holocaust denial and distortion and will explore measures being taken to identify and counter denial and distortion, and to challenge hate speech. The discussion will be moderated by the United Nations Department of Global Communications.
