Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
says the material held in the archive will not only make it possible for "the millions of individual tragedies that made up the Holocaust to be properly and respectfully recorded," but may also put a damper on the widespread virus of Holocaust denial.
(my emphasis).  Given the views of much (some?) of the Muslim world that the Holocaust was a hoax, this will be yet more data showing it was not.  I know that the group that perpetuates this view will likely not ever change because it fits there political agenda.  But for young educated Muslims who are hopefully open to reality, maybe some will be persuaded as this adds data to the story, and may also raise the visibility of the horror for a few years, as the information is dispersed.
