Gibson On The Holocaust? No Thanks.

News leaked out this week that actor/filmmaker Mel Gibson, who ignited a firestorm last year with his bloody biopic, The Passion of the Christ, would be involved with a new ABC-TV project dramatizing the memoir of a Holocaust survivor. It didn’t take long for Jewish groups nationwide to respond, accusing Gibson of “minimizing” the Holocaust in past statements, and demanding that he not be a part of the project.
