A handful of neo-Nazis disrupted a Holocaust remembrance event in Arkansas this weekend, bearing swastika flags and shouting that “the Holocaust didn’t happen but it should have.”

According to a CNN report, the dozen or so protesters also decried Holocaust victims at “your imaginary 6 million.” They were outnumbered by the 50 or so marchers there for the event.

The neo-Nazis tried to shout down a 96-year-old World War II veteran speaker who had helped liberate concentration camps during the war.

The protest was reportedly in part due to controversy at the local Arkansas Tech University over a scholarship named for a professor who has been accused of anti-Semitism.
