Holocaust Denial

Holocaust Denial The Monument to the prisoners of the Chisinau ghetto.

On January 21, 2014 unionist historian Veceslav Stavila said that “communists have murdered 10 times more people than the Nazis, who only killed 20 000 Bessarabian Jews”.

On April 11, 2014 MPs from the ruling coalition refused to stand in memory of the victims of Nazi concentration camps. At the Parliamentary session on this sorrowful date, MP Inna Supac proposed that members of the parliament stand to commemorate the victims of Nazi regimes, including the regime of Ion Antonescu. However, only Communist MPs and some members of the ruling coalition stood up, while all members of the presidium and speaker Igor Corman remained seated. Chairman of the legislature stated that "not all the dates should be voiced" in the parliament.

On July 22, Romanian philosopher and Holocaust denier Paul Goma was nominated for the Moldovan National Award. European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) held a round table in Chisinau in October, where it presented its report and recommendations on ratification of Protocol No. 12 to the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and the European Charter of Regional and Minority Languages. The report noted that Holocaust in Moldova did not receive sufficient public recognition. “The number of Jews in Moldova has drastically reduced, which mainly occurred due to deportation and execution of Jews by Ian Antonescu’s regime. Moldovans know little about this period of their history.”
