Former German chancellor Gerhard Schroeder said in Iran on Saturday that the Holocaust is a historical fact, contradicting the Iranian president's previous assertions that the event is a myth. Addressing the Iranian Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Teheran, Schroeder added that it did not make sense to deny "this unparalleled crime for which Adolf Hitler is responsible." Schroeder also called for dialogue between Teheran and Washington, saying President Barack Obama's election has provideda new opportunity and that the chance "for a new policy must be taken now." The former German chancellor, who was expected to meet Ahmadinejad later in his visit, was on an unofficial tour of Iran to inaugurate a neuroscience center co-founded by a Germany-based Iranian specialist.
