‘Catholics, gypsies suffered more than Jews’

Archbishop Dadeus Grings

A Brazilian archbishop has suggested that Catholics and gypsies had been more intensely victimized than Jews during the Second World War.

“The Jews talk about six million people killed. But how many Catholics were victims of the Holocaust? They were 22 million in all,” Archbishop Dadeus Grings, from Porto Alegre in southern Brazil, told advertising magazine Press & Advertising.

The archbishop also contended that while “Jews say they were the main victims of the Holocaust, the biggest victims were the gypsies, because they were exterminated.”

In February, another catholic bishop had denied the Holocaust.

Bishop Richard Williamson was at the center of a raging controversy when he said that the Nazis did not use gas chambers to kill Jews during World War II.

Argentinean government ordered the expulsion of the British bishop after he made the statement.

In several countries, including, France, Germany and Austria, ‘Holocaust denial’ is against the law, and ‘deniers’ have been punished with prison.
