‘No Holocaust flyers’, shop tells Adelaide survivor
A HOLOCAUST survivor staging an Adelaide exhibition on the Shoah was appalled when told that a flyer for the event could not be posted outside a local store because a regular customer “does not believe in the Holocaust”.
“The flyer had ‘Holocaust’ written on it, and we’ve got a customer that comes in here who doesn’t believe in the Holocaust, so if we have stuff up there like that, then we have to get into arguments with people, and we can’t be bothered.”
The store manager later phoned The AJN and confirmed that notorious Holocaust denier Fredrick Toben was a regular customer.
Steiner said he had posted about 40 flyers in libraries, civic centres and shopping centres around Adelaide, and had not had any objections elsewhere.
“The Holocaust is not a matter of belief,” she said. “It is a fact of history. Exhibitions like this one are an important part of educating people to understand what happened and protecting human rights in the future.
