Pope Benedict XVI has spoken to thousands of people at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem, and has confirmed that the Holocaust did indeed happen.
The pontiff pontificated on the subject, and said that, contrary to what some people believed, the Holocaust had happened, because he was there!
"The Holocaust did happen. I should know. I was there!"
Pope, real name Joseph Ratzinger, was born into a traditional Bavarian farming family in 1927, although his father was a policeman.
The eighth German to become Pope, he speaks many languages and is said to be an accomplished pianist with a special fondness for Beethoven, although his favourite, like Hitler's, is Wagner.
At the age of 14, he joined the Hitler Youth, as was required of young Germans of the time, but was not an enthusiastic member, or so he says.
Not much is known of his activities during this period, but you can be sure he won't be telling us anything which might reflect badly on his Popeship.
He spoke about the six million Jews who had lost their lives during World War Two, and said:
"They lost their lives, but they will never lose their names, or their gold teeth, of which I have many at home."
