There are hundreds of photo about the genocide. But there's still people that said that the genocide is just a fiction. How did they came out with that kind of idea? Just hate of Jew make them think about it.

Still, this picture does not prove genocide, these people on the picture were not murdered . To examine post war-propaganda has nothing to do with anti-semitism,
