Holocaust History Project

I saw a post at evolgen about the Holocaust History Project, and the lengths to which skeptics of the Holocaust ( or perhaps just anti-semites) will go to silence them.

On March 6, an arsonist set fire to the Holocaust History Project's facility, causing extensive damage to their offfices (read the Press Release). It isn't the first time someone has tried to stop their message:

It was just the latest in a series of attacks with the apparent intent to silence THHP. For the past 18 months, the THHP website has been under an unprecedented Distributed Denial of Service attack. This cyber attack began on September 11, 2004, and is being carried out by a specially modified version of the MyDoom computer worm, programmed to target the THHP web server.

The Holocaust History Project is a free archive of documents, photographs, recordings, and essays regarding the Holocaust, including direct refutation of Holocaust-denial. It serves as an excellent educational resource.

I'm posting this not only because it's an interesting story, but also to render moot the attempts to stop their message. If I can help spread the word, it creates the opposite outcome of that desired by the arsonists.
