Germany Pushes for Ban on Holocaust Denial

15 Jan 2007

With the current rotating European Union presidency held by Germany, Germany expressed its wish to make Holocaust denial a crime across the EU. Additionally, symbols such as the swastika are also to be items that are on the agenda for banning. Germany already has established anti-Nazi laws, and is now looking to spread them across Europe; several other nations such as Austria, Belgium, and France also already have similar laws. Freedom of speech advocates, however, are voicing opinion against this push. For more information, please see this BBC article.
