CBS sent Elizabeth Palmer across the border from Baghdad to Teheran to cover the conference organized in Iran purporting to examine the true history of the Nazi Holocaust. Palmer paid its discredited deniers little mind. Instead she visited Teheran's 27,000-strong Jewish community and filed fascinating pictures of prayer at its ancient synagogues. Schoolboys have to start the day with a loyalty song to the Islamic Revolution before they head to Hebrew classes.
