The German government has laws on the books that will get you thrown in jail for denying the existence of the Holocaust. It mandates that all schoolchildren, starting at age 12 and for years after that, learn about what happened to the Jews under Nazi rule. It has paid out an estimated $90 billion in reparations to Holocaust survivors and their heirs over the last 60 years.

This 12th-century domed reliquary shaped like a church and made of gold and silver is part of the Guelph Treasure.
