Something about this just strikes me as wrong.
why? it's a social network for the exchange of information and ideas...how else are you going to keep the message of truth alive in the information age?
FaceBook is for people wanting to find old schoolmates not Holocaust survivors.
"Fritz! Do you remember back in the day when you threw my friend Schlomos' body into the oven? Seems like just yesterday. Hows the wife?"
Here is the best site if you want to know the "Truth" about Auschwitz.
Auschwitz and the holocaust
Its too frivilous and trivial for such a crime, that is what is wrong with it.
you do realize that there are living survivors--1st, 2nd and 3rd generations--who are using facebook just like everyone else, right? should they not be allowed to use the online tool just like everyone else?
what's more, i run a fan page for my blog, Never Again!, an online Holocaust memorial...are you saying that i shouldn't be allowed to use the online tool the way i see fit?
so in your estimation, it's okay to use facebook for a weekend hook-up, or to find videos of douchebags jumping off of bridges, or frivolous types of activity like that, but it shouldn't be used for educational purposes or for the actual benefit and beterment of society?
i dont see what the fuss is all about. There are facebook pages and groups for all sorts of personal connections.
This is a non issue. Holocaust victims can enjoy the information age like everyone else.
I think it's a terrific idea.
