Although it may seem like many people are actively denying the existence of the holocaust, the reason behind it may be that they weren't told about it. "For the majority of Muslims in the world, the Holocaust is not a major historical event that they deny. We simply do not know it ever happened because we were never informed of it." "Why They Deny the Holocaust." Los Angeles Times. Los Angeles Times, n.d. Web. 23 Apr. 2017. Not everyone is being taught about the tragedy that was the holocaust. Since they don't know about it, they don't think it exists which makes it seem as if they are denying it on purpose.
