Letter To The Iranian Embassies

I have sent this email to the numerous Iranian Embassies dotted around the world.

"Dear Sir,

My grandmother lost virtually every single member of her family in the Holocaust. I am therefore appalled to read that Iran, a country with a notable history of tolerance and acceptance of all nations should be hosting a "conference" which gives a platform to some of the most anti-semitic and racist human beings on the planet.

I wish that the Holocaust had not taken place. I wish that over six million people had not simply vanished between the years of 1939 and 1945. I wish that one and half million children had been given the chance to grow up and contribute to the world, instead of being murdered - simply because they born Jewish.

You are an Ambassador for your country. You have a duty to present your country in the best possible light. I therefore ask you to do everything in your power to educate yourself and your countrymen in what really happened during World War II. Go to Auschwitz, visit the Yad Vashem website, talk with survivors and then make your mind up whether the Holocaust is being "exaggerated".

You owe it to yourselves and your country to learn the real truth about the Holocaust. It did happen and it could happen again if conferences like the one that has taken place in Teheran are given any sort of legitimacy.

Thank you for your time."

Let's see if any of them bother to reply.
