Letter: Lessons on the Holocaust

Sir: I am appalled at the generalisation made by Becky Johns ("Muslims who deny Holocaust", Letters, 7 February) about young Muslims. The experience of your writer is limited to those students who study English as a second language - a very small minority of young Muslims.

I am a father of two university-educated Muslim children and have also worked with many young Muslims through my association with a local community in Harrow. I can say that it is mischievous to suggest that these young Muslims deny the Holocaust or will gloat at the truth of it. They may be indifferent to events that happened more than 50 years ago which have not affected them.
