Religious leaders and victims of terrorist attacks gathered in the world's most populous Muslim nation Tuesday to protest the Iranian president's claims that the Holocaust may have been a "myth." Among them was a Jewish survivor of the genocide, who made an impassioned plea for tolerance. "I hope people will learn from the past," said Sol Teichman, 79, who was a teenager living in Czechoslovakia when his city was occupied first by the Hungarian army and then the Germans. "We should try to improve life instead of destroying it." The daylong gathering on Indonesia's resort island of Bali was attended by the country's former President Abdurraham Wahid, Hindu spiritual head Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Buddhist teachers, a Jesuit priest and - rare in a country that does not recognize Israel or the Jewish religion - rabbis.
