Holocaust Web Site At Emory Launches Non-English Versions

April 09, 2009

ATLANTA (UMNS) - Holocaust Denial on Trial (HDOT.org), a Web site founded by Emory University professor Deborah Lipstadt to teach about the dangers of Holocaust denial and demonstrate how deniers distort historical evidence of the Holocaust, is re-launching in four new languages: Arabic, Farsi, Russian and Turkish.

These translations are designed to spread the original site's messages to areas where Holocaust denial goes the most unchallenged. At each of the new sites, visitors will be greeted by a complete parallel home page, site navigation and content in their language of choice. They will be able to search the site's database in the new languages as well.

The new sites are available at:

"This project significantly expands the reach of HDOT.org in regions of the world where a significant amount of Holocaust denial is happening," says Lipstadt.

In conjunction with this launch, HDOT also announces the creation of a new podcast series, available through Emory's iTunes University at http://www.hdot.org/en/learning/itunes.
