      Poland will not let Iran research Holocaust


      WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland's Foreign Minister Stefan Meller on Friday
      ruled out allowing any Iranian researchers to examine the scale of the
      Holocaust committed by the German Nazis on Polish soil during World
      War Two.

      Meller's remarks came after repeated denials of the Jewish Holocaust
      by Iranian officials and their suggestions that more research is
      needed to establish the truth about what happened to European Jews.

      "Under no circumstances we should allow something like that to take
      place in Poland," Meller told Polish news agency PAP. "It goes beyond
      all imaginable norms to question, even discuss or negotiate the issue."

      Polish daily Rzeczpospolita reported on Friday that Iran wants to send
      researchers to Poland to examine the scale of the Nazi crimes during
      the war.

      Some 6 million Jews perished in the Holocaust, with an estimated 1.1
      million killed in gas chambers at Auschwitz- Birkenau, a death camp
      set up in German-occupied Poland.

      Last week Iran's ambassador to Lisbon, who in the past served as a
      diplomat in Poland, said in an interview on Portuguese radio that
      according to his calculations based on a visit to the camp, now a
      museum, it would have taken the Nazis 15 years to burn the corpses of
      6 million people.
