In an unusual move, Yad Vashem will be hosting a briefing next week for the diplomatic corps stationed in Israel on Holocaust denial. The event, which will be hosted by Yad Vashem Chairman Avner Shalev, Holocaust expert Professor Yehoshua Bauer and the head of the Middle East Media Research Institute Yigal Carmon, comes the same week that Iran will be hosting an international Holocaust conference. Iran's president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has called the Holocaust, in which six million Jews perished at the hands of the Nazis, a myth. He has also repeatedly called for Israel to be wiped off the map.
