    The trial, it will be remembered, hinged on Irving's claim that Deborah Lipstadt had libeled him in her 1993 book Denying the Holocaust, a book that was bankrolled by the Jerusalem-based Vidal Sassoon Center for the Study of Antisemitism. Part of how is answered in the way the stories of the atrocities were covered. Due to shortage of manpower, an order of February 1943 forbid anyone to characterize the peoples of Eastern Europe as "beasts," "subhumans" or other derogatory descriptions in order to gain their support in "the struggle against Bolshevism." [156] Local populations in some occupied Soviet territories actively participated in the killings of Jews and others. [157] But it was ultimately the Germans who organized and channelled these local efforts. [157] Many of the collaborators who participated in the killings of Jews enlisted in the Waffen-SS. [158] In Lithuania, Latvia, and western Ukraine locals were deeply involved in the murder of Jews from the very beginning of the German occupation. [157] The Latvian Arajs Kommando is an example of an auxiliary unit involved in these killings. [157] Some of these Latvian and Lithuanian units left their own countries to murder Jews in Belarus.

    The failure to see this design has some African historians vilifying or neglecting Islamic African history; they speak of Africa and deliberately avoid Timbuktu, Futa Tora, Sokoto, Ancient Ghana et al from nobility, thus thinning the African historical reality. Their unmitigated vulnerability manifests the consequences of society identifying a particular group as the “other” with no duty owed to mitigate the inevitable disaster that awaited members of the group who were, it must be recalled, German citizens.
