I haven't seen nor heard anyone come out with this remark. The Indigenous are asking for the removal of all the statues and memorials depicting people who have abused them in any way. I think it was Dwight Eisenhower who told the soldiers to take hundreds of pictures of the atrocities of the holocaust because there would come a time when people would say there was no truth to it; that it had never happened.
Fortunately, he thought forward as such has already happened with the holocaust; some are saying there was no such thing. I know the Indigenous may not have thought of such a thing possibly happening to their abusers. I'd recommend that their statues, pictures and such be preserved to let the world know that they definitely happened and should never happen again.
