Sweden: Sweden Democrats politician denies Jews were murdered in Auschwitz
Via Lokal Tidningen Alvesta:
Lennart Johansson is a member of the city council in Alvesta for the Sweden Democrats.
At a recent meeting, discussion turned to Auschwitz. Thomas Hedevik (Social Democrats) spoke of a Jewish woman who had a number tattooed on her arm in Auschwitz. In response, Johannson said that the victims in Auschwitz weren't Jews, they were Polish patriots.
"Who died in Auschwitz? Polish patriotic heroes. I know that. They died because they wanted to defend Poland from foreign fascist invaders. That's how it was in Auschwitz. I read in Polish encyclopedias that it was so. I lived in Poland."
Hedevik responded that Johansson is a revisions of history.
Ironically, a similar sentiment was expressed a year ago by an anti-Sweden Democrat journalist.
