This beautiful painting (Mrs Miriam Rosen Michelle) is by the Polish-Jewish artist Chana Gitla Kowalska. I'm not sure of the date but it can't be any later than 1941 because that's when the Nazis shot her.
David Baddiel (one of my favourite comedians since I was at school) has a show on TV tonight (in the UK) about Holocaust denial, such an important subject.
To me, the key thing about Holocaust deniers is firstly that I don't think they necessarily don't believe it; they just don't mind that it happened (to Jewish people at least). Because seriously (and the last thing I mean to do here is offend survivors or their relatives), if you think killing, say one million people because of their race/religion etc (or even "just" those piles of dead human beings in the footage that survives) is somehow less bad than killing the true number, around 6 million, then I think that you are missing the point.
