Japan Never Committed the Holocaust
Statement Made by ELI COHEN, Former Israeli Ambassador to Japan
Interviewed by Ms. Ohtaka Miki, journalist on March 24, 2014
The Holocaust was a catastrophe without parallel anywhere in the world. It was perpetrated by Nazi Germany and only Nazi Germany. The use of the word “Holocaust” in connection with any other nation is preposterous. Even more preposterous are attempts to equate military prostitutes with the Holocaust. Japan has never committed any act even remotely resembling the Holocaust.
I urge the Japanese people to awaken to the fact that today, with the advent of a new Cold War structure, many nations are using the Holocaust as a propaganda tool. This is not the time to argue that the Korean accusations are lies — lies that no one will believe. Use any and every weapon at your disposal, especially the Internet, to broadcast the truth to the world and fight back against these attacks, which are clearly information warfare.
