Yad Vashem Reacts to President of Syria's Holocaust Denial Statement, 20 December 2023

21 December 2023

In recent remarks issued by Syrian President Bashar Assad, he propagated hateful and deeply disturbing antisemitic rhetoric, questioning the veracity of the Holocaust and cultivating conspiracy theories. We, as responsible members of the global community, vehemently condemn his remarks.

The Holocaust has been extensively documented, researched, and studied as one of the most tragic and horrifying events in human history. The attempt to trivialize, deny, or distort its horrors is a form of antisemitism.

As a modern society, it is our duty to strongly denounce hate speech and raise awareness of this dark chapter of our not-so-distant past by promoting meaningful Holocaust education, especially in Arabic-speaking countries.
