Complainant Name:
Mr M Maloney

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Hendon & Finchley Press

Complaint:

Mr M Maloney of London complained that the newspaper had inaccurately reported that a million black people had been killed by the Nazis in concentration camps during the Second World War, in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy).

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper agreed to publish the following correction:

On 5 February, we reported that a million black people, along with numerous members of other groups, had been killed by the Nazis in concentration camps during WWII. The figure of one million actually referred to the total number of individuals from all of those groups who were killed. We are happy to clarify this matter in the interests of historical accuracy.

Report: 79
