Subject:  An Untimely Sad Message


IN MEMORIAM

This week the University of Kentucky removed The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it "offended"
the Muslim population, which claims it never occurred.
This is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into it.
It is now more than 60 years since the Second World War in Europe ended.

This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million
Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and humiliated with
the German and Russian peoples looking the other way!

Now more than ever, with Iran among others

claiming the Holocaust to be "a myth," it is imperative to make sure
the world never forgets.

This e-mail is intended to reach 40 million people worldwide!
Join us and be a link in the memorial chain and help us distribute it around the world.

Please send this e-mail to 10 people you know and ask them to continue the memorial chain.

Please don't just delete it.
It will only take you a minute to pass this along.

 


This email (or something similar) has been circulating on the web since 2007.  The original source was a rumor that a school (or schools) in England (UK) had buckled to Muslim pressure and removed Holocaust material from its class offerings.  As the rumor spread to the US, "UK" became University of Kentucky.  The University of Kentucky has issued several press releases but the rumor and emails persist.  For more visit Snopes.com
