After World War II, Germany took on a special responsibility not only to remember the Holocaust, but to counter those who question its scope. This is, in large part, the "official history" that Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the world is not free to question.

Monday, Germany's Federal Office for Civic Education puts on a conference specifically designed to counter the Holocaust conference in Tehran — and to explore ties or shared ideology between those considered neo-Nazis in Europe and views such as Ahmadinejad's, that the Holocaust has been exaggerated.
