Iran launches book mocking Holocaust victims





Iran's education minister looked on while a group of militant students unveiled a book ridiculing Holocaust victims during an anti-Israeli rally in central Tehran.

The book's cover depicted a Jew with a hooked nose dressed in traditional clothes drawing the outlines of dead bodies on the ground.

Written by student members of the Basij militia, the book comes two years after an Iranian newspaper commissioned a competition of Holocaust-themed cartoons.

Despite an international outcry, the Iranian government later in 2006 hosted a Holocaust conference featuring a number of revisionist historians.

Inside pages have pictures of bearded Jews shown leaving and re-entering a gas chamber with a counter that reads 5,999,999.
