The following editorial appeared in Thursday’s Chicago Tribune:

Around the world, the voices of the Holocaust are dwindling. As the survivors die, some people fret that the killing of 6 million Jews by the Nazis in World War II will fade to a dim passage in a history text.
They fear the world will forget.
Thanks to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, however, that’s not likely to happen anytime soon. Ahmadinejad has single-handedly catapulted the Holocaust back in the headlines again, first by suggesting it never happened and then by planning for a national conference to ”examine evidence” on the Holocaust.
That is a splendid idea, assuming the conference organizers want to examine all the evidence, not just a few crackpot theories advanced by delusional Holocaust deniers. MORE.
