Nazi protesters disrupt Holocaust remembrance march

National News

AUSTIN (KXAN) — A group of white supremacists carrying Nazi flags and signs interrupted a Holocaust remembrance event in Arkansas this past week.

About 10 to 15 protesters tried to disrupt the event, shouting things like ‘why should we believe you that the holocaust happened?’

They were outnumbered by the roughly 50 people attending the Holocaust remembrance march. 

The Nazi group organized the protest due to the controversy surrounding a scholarship that was named after late professor Michael Link. 

Link reportedly taught that holocaust denial is a valid historical viewpoint.

The school has come under increased pressure to reconsider the scholarship, which has yet to be awarded.
