Germany’s state-run international broadcaster Deutsche Welle and its English language service DW News have been a go-to source for news related to state policy, official comments and statistics.

Michigan Representative Rashida Tlaib attempted to rewrite history recently by claiming that the Arabs of the British Mandate for Palestine (they would not be called “Palestinians” until decades later) provided “safe haven” to Jews before, during, and after the Holocaust.
