We take very seriously any activities aimed at casting doubt on the occurence of the Holocaust, wherever they occur in the world. We have made clear our concerns about Iran’s policies towards Israel and the Holocaust on many occasions, and most recently we raised our concerns over an alleged proposal to hold a competition in Iran for Holocaust-related cartoons.
