“These records, which are easily accessible to anyone seeking information about the Holocaust, are often openly anti-Semitic.”UNESCO expressed regret after examining 4,000 messages about the Holocaust published on five major platforms, including Telegram. “Infamous for its lack of moderation and clear recommendations for its users”.

The rate for messages in German exceeds 80% on Telegram, and reaches almost 50% for those in English and French, the UN continues, thanks to the work of the Oxford Internet Institute.

Denial and falsification also exist in other networks, but to a lesser extent, they are moderate: 19% of Holocaust-related content on Twitter is Holocaust denier, 17% on TikTok, 8% on Facebook and 3% on Instagram, UNESCO underlines.
