Holocaust memorial starts Farsi website

Breaking News

Israel's Holocaust memorial has launched a version of its Web site in Farsi to educate the country's most bitter enemy — Iran — about the Nazi genocide of 6 million Jews.

Iran has faced widespread condemnation for hosting a conference last month that questioned whether the Holocaust took place. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called the Holocaust a "myth" and said Israel should be "wiped off the map."

The Web site was unveiled this week to coincide with Saturday's U.N. annual Holocaust remembrance day, officials said. Saturday marked the 62nd anniversary of the Auschwitz death camp's liberation by the advancing Soviet army.
