Spain: First travelling Auschwitz exhibition hit by anti-Semitic hate campaign

Via Daily Telegraph:
Organisers of the first major off-site exhibition of objects and artefacts from Auschwitz have been targeted by virulent social media attacks leading up to the world premiere opening of the display in Madrid on December 1.

“People use the anonymity of social media to launch negationist and hate-filled messages. This shows us that there are still people who need to know this story,” Luis Ferreiro, the director of Spanish company Musealia, told the Daily Telegraph.

More than 100 messages have been reported to the Spanish authorities, including messages denying the Holocaust.

The exhibition features more than 600 objects from Auschwitz, including one of the freight wagons used to carry prisoners to the camp.
