Facebook apologises to the Anne Frank Center for removing image of naked child holocaust victims
Facebook has apologised to the Anne Frank Center for removing an article it posted which featured an image of naked child holocaust victims.
Facebook said the post was removed because it featured nude images of children, which is banned on the platform. It later restored the post.
It’s not the first time Facebook’s moderation process has failed to take historical context into account.
Facebook has apologised to the Anne Frank Center for removing an article it posted calling for more Holocaust education. The post featured an image of child Holocaust victims, naked and emaciated.
These numbers are alarming, but this is why we do what we do. Currently only 10 states mandate Holocaust and Genocide Education. How do we counter ignorance about the Holocaust with knowledge, compassion, and understanding? https://t.co/1xtsNLAKEx
