    This is deeply obscene. How can people treat others in this inhumane manner? ..yet ''ethnic cleansing'' is still going on in the world. -often using ''religion'' as an ''excuse'' ...appalling, and the Imperial War Museum had a small display of shoes and possessions of the people killed at these hideous places, and it was grim..and the visitors were silent. It was too much for mere words.

    Such evil..appalling.

    Will we ever learn?
    And the Holocaust denying? how can they say that it didn't happen, when these films exist?
