Holocaust Survivor Noah Flug: 'We Invite Iranian President Ahmadinejad To Visit Auschwitz To See If There Was No Holocaust'
'We Request To Participate At Upcoming Holocaust Conference In Tehran'
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has become the worlds leading denier of the Holocaust. In Jerusalem, Noah Flug, president of the Auschwitz International Committee, of former prisoners of Auschwitz has sent an invitation to the Iranian leader to visit the death camp to see for himself. Flug has also requested that the Iranian authorities allow him to participate in an upcoming conference on the Holocaust in Tehran. In our IsraCast studio, Noah Flug talked to David Essing about why he has sent his urgent letter to the Iranian president.
'I would like to invite you to visit the Auschwitz concentration camp together with members of the Auschwitz International Committee' - that extraordinary invitation comes from Noah Flug, the president of the umbrella organization of Holocaust survivors to Iranian President Ahmadinejad.
In his letter to the Iranian leader, Flug wrote that Ahmadinejad has repeatedly cast doubt that 6 million Jews were murdered by the Nazis. In addition, Ahmadinejad had even written German Chancellor Angela Merkel saying the Allies may have invented the Holocaust at the end of World War II in order to shame Germany. Flug tells the Iranian president: I have come to the clear conclusion that you are lacking in knowledge of the subject and I would like to hope that you express yourself in this way as a result of your lack of knowledge, rather than malice. Perhaps the time has come for you to add to your knowledge of the subject. At Auschwitz, Flug said he would be able to show President Ahmadinejad how the Nazi extermination machine operated, killing over a million people, Jews and also non-Jews. Flug has also called on the Iranian leader to permit him to attend a conference on the Holocaust in three months time in Tehran.
