Iranian television broadcast a miniseries alleging that Israel assassinated an academic who “proved” the Nazi gas chambers were not used for the mass murder of Jews. “Holocaust,” a three-part drama, was aired by Tehran’s Sahar television station last week in conjunction with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s calls for Israel to be “wiped off the map.” The series purports to tell the story of a French Jewish academic who discovers that the Nazi gas chambers were used for delousing, not execution, but is killed by Mossad assassins before he can publish his findings.
