Simon Wiesenthal Center Urges YouTube to Delete Korean Language Holocaust Denial Screed
September 3, 2020
The Simon Wiesenthal Center(SWC), a leading Jewish Human Rights NGO, is calling on YouTube to delete a Korean language Holocaust denial video posted on its platform.
“This slick 25-minute video from “Spika Studio” by a host named “Sue” denies 6 million Jews were murdered by the Nazis, that anyone was gassed at Auschwitz, labels Anne Frank a fraud, legitimizes Hitler’s hate for Germany Jewry, and alleges secret Jewish control of America for the last 50 years,” Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean and Director of the SWC’s Global Social Action Agenda charged.
“American Jews and Korean Americans are good neighbors here in Los Angeles and in communities across the United States," Cooper noted.
“We are proud of our involvement over the last quarter of century, together with Korean human rights activists, the Committee for Human Rights in North Korea, the North Korean Freedom Coalition on behalf of the long-suffering people of North Korea and related human rights issues, including the gassing of political prisoners. Recently, we have seen an uptick of anti-Semitic postings online, but this video targeting Korean people is designed to demonize the Jewish people – alive and dead– and cast Jews as a secretive, dangerous cabal.”
“The SWC urges YouTube to remove the video and calls on our Korean neighbors to reject its lurid and false messages," Rabbi Cooper concluded.
