JNS.orgThe Auschwitz museum, which is located at the site of the former Nazi death camp in Poland, says it has launched an online program on Holocaust awareness in the Arabic and Farsi languages.

The museum says it gets very few visitors from the Arab world or Iran, areas where Holocaust misinformation and denial are the highest.

“We want to address groups of people who often have little knowledge of this subject or who even advocate revisionist views,” museum spokesman Pawel Sawicki told AFP.

In addition to Arabic and Farsi, Spanish and Portuguese were added to the program’s website. English and Polish versions have been offered since 2010, when the program was launched.

More than 1 million Jews and at least 100,000 other people were killed in Auschwitz during World War II.
