For information: The Defending History community deplores Putinist dictatorship, revanchism and mischief in neighboring states. Our community is solidly behind the NATO alliance of democratic states and their perpetual independence and freedom. That freedom obviously includes the right to critique the new far right’s Holocaust revisionism, its racism and antisemitism, and state-sponsored glorification of wartime Hitler collaborators.
