Rasmus Paludan, the leader of Hard Line, a Danish far-right group, burned a Quran, the holy book of Islam, during demonstrations last weekend outside the Turkish Embassy in Stockholm, Sweden, over Turkey's rejection of Sweden's NATO membership bid. Paludan had previously sparked violent riots in Sweden last April for performing the same stunt. Sweden’s Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson excused this act as “freedom of expression,” which caused many people on social media to express outrage by the lack of condemnation for this type of hate, comparing it to responses to acts of antisemitism or homophobia.

Holocaust denial on social media is not unique to Fuentes and his supporters. A report from UNESCO released in July 2022 found that 19% of public Twitter content related to the Holocaust either denied or distorted it. The same was true for 17% of Holocaust-related content on TikTok, 8% on Facebook, and 3% on Instagram. Twitter is being sued in Germany over the platform’s failure to moderate and remove posts denying the Holocaust.

Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day, recognized on the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp and designated by the United Nations for the commemoration of the Holocaust.
Throughout the week, many people engaged with the "We Remember" campaign, a global initiative by the World Jewish Congress which aims to raise awareness on social media about the atrocities of the Holocaust and to educate people about the dangers of hatred and intolerance. The relevance of this campaign is highlighted by several recent surveys from The Claims Conference which show a lack of Holocaust understanding in the United Statesand around the world, particularly with the younger generation.
