Holocaust Denial and Holocaust PTSD
The holocaust denial propaganda movement seeks to deny the reality of the Nazi regime's systematic mass murder of six million Jews in Europe during World War II. Past attempts at resolution of the age-old Israeli/Palestinian conflict ultimately failed because Middle East peace proposals did not take into account the role PTSD now plays in the thoughts, behaviors, and the modern social identity of the Jewish people.
