This essay/post is the result of the disturbing trend within some sectors of society to deny, diminish or otherwise undermine the historicity of the Holocaust. Besides the obvious groups like Neo-Nazis, anti-Semites and elements of the Muslim/Christian fundamentalist communities, there is perhaps one group in the 21st Century more responsible for perpetuating the myth that the Holocaust never happened or is vastly exaggerated: conspiracy theorists.

I know this first hand as I am in many ways what can be termed a conspiracy theorist in my work as an author and independent researcher. However, I try to mainly focus on what I call “underground knowledge” – mostly factual things that have been overlooked or underreported in our mainstream media. As WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange succinctly put it: “There are conspiracies everywhere. There are also crazed conspiracy theories. It’s important not to confuse these two.” In other words, I write about ideas supported by strong evidence substantiated in court cases, declassified government files and the like rather than pure speculation. Important issues, such as high finance crimes which decimate communities worldwide and media manipulation which can lead to unnecessary wars, that I believe are crucial for people to know about. Often these subjects are conspiracy fact or conspiracy reality rather than theories.

Sometimes as an author and social activist in this field, I get approached by a certain type of casual reader or amateur investigator who form a dangerous element within the conspiracy field: those who simply regurgitate ideas they read about online and attempt to debate historically-proven events like the Holocaust as if they are up for debate at all. And of course the internet is the perfect technology for bigots and haters to capture young and impressionable or otherwise naïve minds. Lately, I have been getting almost weekly emails from people who question whether the Holocaust occurred as per the history books – some of these people even include other authors. Plus, as I have written extensively about the Holocaust and its dark legacy, I also get hate mail quite often from anti-Semites.

Note that I have put my name in the title of this post not for egotistical reasons but because I, as a non-Jew, am standing up with all my being to say one thing: The Holocaust happened EXACTLY as per the history books. Period. Fact. No debate about it whatsoever.

Wikipedia’s definition of this historical event summarizes what mainstream historians universally agree upon:

“The Holocaust, also known as the Shoah, was a genocide in which Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany and its collaborators killed about six million Jews. Period: January 30, 1933 – May 8, 1945.”

I believe the Holocaust is an extremely important historical event humanity must learn from if our civilization is to eventually survive let alone achieve world peace one day. In my opinion, all truthseekers should study how on Earth this event was allowed to occur (and “allowed” is the correct term as such genocides are never just perpetrators and victims but rather perpetrators, victims AND bystanders…).

Those who challenge the vast and indisputable historicity of the Holocaust like to state they fall into two distinct camps: Holocaust Deniers (those who say the entire crime of the Nazis never occurred and is just a result of post-war propaganda) and the more common Holocaust Revisionists (those who try to downgrade the death figures from 6 million Jews to only about 50,000 or 500,000 max). But note that the latter group like to also imply that of the tens or hundreds of thousands of Jews they claim to have (only) died, few if any of these “casualties of war” were the result of gas chambers. So essentially revisionists are still denying the Holocaust as there’s really very little difference between saying 95% of the Holocaust never happened as saying 100% of it never happened.

So for the rest of this post I will only use the term Holocaust Deniers as I feel the term Holocaust Revisionists gives them far too much respect and makes them sound intellectual or even academic.

I have studied all sides of this so-called debate, read Holocaust survivors’ books and watched documentary footage of the actual Holocaust, listened to recordings of Hitler’s speeches and infamous Holocaust deniers like David Irving, studied WW2 history etc, etc.

And I can assure you of one thing: Holocaust Deniers always have anti-Semitism somewhere inside them. ALWAYS.

Deniers will pretend they are impartial and say they have simply discovered anomalies in historical records that they wish to report, but deep down there will definitely be a hatred of Jews (even if only a subconscious or unconscious hatred). Sometimes the anti-Semitism is very clear (e.g. David Irving, who after years of claiming he was an unbiased historian with no racial hatred whatsoever, has since made disparaging remarks against Jews and various other non-White races – see his interview with Australian journalist John Safran as one example of Irving’s vile racism https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rBCst4hph0 ). Other times it’s more like a subtle form of brainwashing that is either conspiracy based (e.g. wrongly assuming the banking elite are all Jewish or believing in the age-old myth that the Jews control the entire world) or else religious-based where certain fundamentalists (primarily in extremist forms of Christianity or Islam) believe the Jews are an inferior race or practice an inferior religion.

I’ve also met a lot of Holocaust survivors and seen the numbered tattoos on their arms that were branded on them by the Nazis. I have listened to the personal eyewitness accounts of these survivors and about what occurred inside the concentration camps and the various atrocities Europe-wide during WW2.

So allow me to list a few of the common myths Holocaust Deniers perpetuate:

MYTH #1: “You could not kill 6,000,000 people in those facilities in Auschwitz and the other death camps! The 6 million figure would be almost impossible to achieve, it would had to have been a hell of a meatgrinder and a superhuman work to kill such an enormous amount of people.”

Firstly, 11 million people were killed in the Holocaust, six million of which were Jews, but not all were killed in the death camps (Approximately 3 million Jews are estimated to have died within the concentration camps and not all from being gassed either, many also died from being overworked, malnourished, diseased or experimented on).

Besides the concentration camps, there were Nazi death squads and Eastern European Nazi associates operating with machine guns all over Europe who rounded up and massacred Jews en masse in towns and cities (about 1.5 million are estimated to have been shot in what historians refer to as open-air killings in cities and towns all over Europe). Just research the amount of open-air shootings in Lithuania and Poland alone to see what I mean. Virtually all of which are highly documented.

Einsatzgruppe_shooting

Beyond Nazi and Nazi associated death squads who machine gunned large groups of Jews all over Europe outside of the concentration camps, the 6 million figure also includes about 500,000 Jews who were starved to death in ghettos in Germany and Poland during AND before the war (refer to the aforementioned definition of the Holocaust being from 1933 until 1945, meaning the death toll began 7 years before the World War began because for European Jews the war started long before Germany began its assault on the rest of the world).

Besides Jews, the other victims in the Holocaust were the Nazis other “inferior races” or “ïnferior groups” including Roma Gypsies, Poles, Homosexuals, Freemasons, Jehova’s Witnesses, Slovenes and disabled people – and these resulted in millions of additional deaths that form the 11 million people in total. It’s also very interesting, if you stop to think about it, that nobody ever seems to spend much time denying the fact that all the millions of non-Jewish who were killed in the Holocaust…It’s only the death of that many Jews that creates controversy…Why??? The answer is very simple: They are Jewish. That’s it – it really is that simple. Had this happened to any other group of people, there would be few if any complaints whatsoever and everyone would accept the facts. Anti-Semitism is one of the most aggressive forces on the planet and always has been going right back to Biblical times…

The Nazis themselves were also meticulous record keepers and kept extensive documentation on deportations and deaths of Jews. Human rights groups have recovered much of the Nazi documentation relating to the Holocaust and have so far found the IDs for over three million Jewish Holocaust victims and additional documentation relating to the other five million non-Jews who died. This is all easily sourced in the public domain for anyone to find.

Make no mistake about it, most of the Jews living in Europe at that time were killed. About 75% of all European Jews died in fact.
There simply is zero debate on this issue and it is completely historically verified.
And the good news is you can easily prove all this to yourself (and to others) by checking out this frightening statistic:

The global Jewish population in 1939 was 15 million.
Today the global population is just under 13 million!
You can see it on the graph at the bottom of this Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_diaspora

So that’s undeniable proof of the Holocaust right there in black and white.
Because the populations of ALL other ethnic groups increase over time.
They never decrease unless there’s a major famine or massive war (or an ethnic cleansing!).

So this statistic alone should be enough to silence all those who still deny many millions died in WW2. Because if any other ethnic group had a global population of 15 million in 1939 they would ordinarily be about 25-30 million in this era. So how come the Jewish population shrunk so drastically? The answer again is very simple and can be summed up in two words: The Holocaust.

MYTH #2: “The reason the real story about the Holocaust cannot ever be proven is because it is taboo. If you publicly want to discuss the numbers, depending on what country you are, you may be arrested. Why? If this is so well documented then why not just prove it to the people to shut up the deniers. Why forbid them to show their version of facts?”

It’s not a taboo to investigate the Holocaust at all. You can study it until your heart is content. If you go to Europe right now and study historical records of the Holocaust and inspect the IDs the Nazis kept as documentation of Jewish deaths you could literally spend the rest of your life studying these details and nobody anywhere will stop you – in fact you will be greatly encouraged to do so. However, your confusion of the legality issue merely lies in the fact that in certain countries in Europe like German, Austria, Poland and a few others it is illegal to promote any ideology that says the Holocuast did not happen as per the history books. It is literally written into those countries law books and is in recognition of the fact that it is the worst crime in living memory and also that there is still a tremendous amount of anti-Semites and Neo Nazis in Europe today and these countries are worried history could repeat itself. But this is in no way related to your (incorrect) assumption that this means a cover-up of the real history of the Holocaust is occurring. The proof of the Holocaust numbers is there for all to see in plain sight. Like I said, if you arrive in Europe now and say to any official in any European nation “Hi, my name is XXXXX and I would like to study the Holocuast indepth and inspect the records of those who died and all the evidence of the Holocaust,” they will welcome you with open arms.

However, if some Holocaust denying, anti-Semitic, Nazi sympathizing, Hitler apologist arrives in say Germany or Austria to give a speech about why the Holocaust is greatly exaggerated or says he wants to hold a public debate about whether this historical event actually occurred, he will either be turned away at the airport or imprisoned.
Now, that’s all fair enough in my books and is not unusual. For example, if I was an author and speaker who has repeatedly said African-Americans were never slaves in America’s history and millions did not die in the slave trade and it’s all simply propaganda, do you think US authorities would let me into the country? And would I as a foreigner be allowed to stay in the country and give such hate-filled speeches about black descendants and US citizens? No.

MYTH #3: “We now know media and governments lie and that all wars are made by propaganda. They lied a lot about Hitler, even silly things (he was a sexual pervert, he had only one testicle, he had flatulence etc). If they lied or exaggerated about such things, how can we be assured the rest of the things they told us about World War Two are absolutely true?”

Wars always have vast amounts of propaganda on all sides and certain things said about Hitler are not remotely related to how many Jews died in the Holocaust. That’s like saying just because there were racist cartoons about the Japanese in WW2 that compared the Japanese to animals and even accused them of bestiality, proves they didn’t kill millions throughout the Pacific.

MYTH #4: “Three million deceased Jews in concentration camps is still a huge number. If you consider that the relentless killing didn’t start until some time into World War II, it would need an extraordinary effort for a single country which was already struggling on a two-front war. And the camps did not have the necessary infrastructure to kill and remove the bodies of millions of people. Germany did not have the logistics to pull off such a crime.”

The Nazi regime’s orchestration concerning the concentration camps was incredibly efficient (and again, all fully documented mostly by the Nazis themselves). There were 8 main camps. The highest death toll of Jewish prisoners/victims was Auschwitz at 1 million. Others had about 300,000-500,000 deaths in each. Each camp definitely had the necessary infrastructure to easily and systematically create such a death toll over the entire war. The camps were all built with railway tracks right outside the gates and German (non-Jewish) witnesses report multiple trains per day would leave and depart at each camp (sometimes even hourly trains). These trains were either constantly delivering new victims/prisoners or else bringing in supplies. And this amount of large trains continued from near the start of the war until the very end.

Now you say “it would need an extraordinary effort for a single country which was already struggling on a two-front war” which reveals another common misunderstanding. Germany should not be viewed as just a country at this point. Nazi Germany cannot be compared to modern day Germany or any other single country for that matter, because the fact is Germany had become the Third Reich by that stage. Now just think about what the Third Reich was: one of the most powerful empires in history. It had looted the riches of half of Europe (after having invaded or over-run powerhouse nations like France, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Greece, Poland etc), it was secretly receiving enormous funds from the Vatican Bank (yes, the Catholics were aware of Hitler’s intent toward the Jews) and also some Swiss banks were supporting the Third Reich too. Plus, the Nazis had fascist allies like Mussolini’s Italy and even Japan from afar.

So a far better or more appropriate question to ask yourself is: “Could a regime that controls almost all of Europe’s resources and wealth kill a few million defenseless Jews who nobody cared about or would defend?” The obvious answer, if you stop to think about it, is: “Yes! Relatively effortlessly!”

Even during the extremely small-scale Balkan/Bosnian wars in the 1990s in Yugoslavia there were mass graves found of ethnic killings in the tens of thousands and I think well over 100,000 were killed in those (comparatively) tiny wars in which most of it was similarly about ethnic cleansings.

MYTH #5: “Most of the Jews died in the camps due to bad working conditions, famine and diseases, which doesn’t make the picture more pretty than if they were just gassed, but it does undermine the supposed history of the Holocaust.”

Um, no, it does not undermine the history of the Holocaust at all. The gassings were simply one part of the deaths in the camps (again, that’s another very common misunderstanding to think the 3 million who died within the camps were ALL the result of gassings). Remember, the concentration camps were not only designed to exterminate Jews. They were also the hub of the Third Reich in many ways as the Jews were a cheap or free labor force performing many duties day and night including manufacturing and all sorts of work duties that helped the regime. Nazi scientists were also conducting wide-scale medical experimentation on hundreds of thousands of Jews (horrific experiments which killed most experimentees). Starting to get the picture of how so many could have died within these camps?

Now when it comes to records of gas chambers themselves, all mainstream historians agree they are 100% verified and that a large percentage of those who died in the camps died from the result of either carbon monoxide or Zyklon B gasses. This is a good starting place for the historical facts surrounding the gas chambers: https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Holocaust/gascamp.html

Besides the assessment of historians, there have also been numerous independent scientific reports published on the gas chambers over the years, including the following examples:

Jean-Claude Pressac (1944 – 2003) – a French pharmacist who was formerly a Holocaust denier, undertook a forensic examination of the Auschwitz gas chambers in 1979. The result? He was shocked by the overwhelming evidence. In 1989 he published a book that confirmed the established view that the gas chambers were functional, killing between 631,000 and 711,000 prisoners (at Auschwitz alone).

Deborah E. Lipstadt‘s book Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory won the UK libel case ‘Irving v Penguin Books and Lipstadt’. The case contained forensic examination for use of gas chambers.

One of the common claims of Holocaust Deniers involves the reconstructed gas chambers built by the Polish government after WW2 at Auschwitz as a memorial to the victims. The Nazis destroyed the original gas chambers where mass murders were committed, and the simulated gas chambers at Auschwitz have never had Zyklon-B deployed in them. Deniers frequently exploit such confusion. At Majdanek, which the Nazis did not successfully destroy, evidence of the use of Zyklon-B appears in the bluing of the concrete. Hydrogen cyanide reacts with iron compounds to form the pigment Prussian blue.

MYTH #6: “You cannot deny that Jews have a huge influence in the banking/financial world and in the media, can you?”

No I wouldn’t deny Jews have a big influence in the banking/financial world and media. But I’ll go much further than that. They have made an enormous mark in virtually every field known to man: from mathematics to publishing to science to medicine to economics to human rights campaigning to engineering. When you consider there are less than 13 million Jews worldwide (about half of the population of Mexico City) they are an incredible people and it’s not just in this era they are world leaders – they always have been (and all that despite never having a country of their own until the mid-20th Century and being up against a mountain of anti-Semitism in every other country they have resided in). They have always been a people throughout history who have largely sculpted the world we live in. It’s also hard to see how women’s rights or the legal equality of races or child welfare or animal rights or environmental protection would have occurred when they did without the Jews (research history and you’ll see they were even at the forefront of these movements). Even many or most of the Nobel Prize winners have been Jewish. And all this success or achievement or service to humanity or whatever you want to call it is partly responsible for the hatred and anti-Semitism as people cannot believe that any one small minority can achieve so much in virtually every field without they being corrupt or scoundrels. I mean can you imagine if say half the world’s most successful people on earth came from some little known state in Brazil? That would be the equivalent. And after a while, the rest of the world would get jealous and say things like “those people from Mato Grosso do Sul are liars and cheats and are secretly controlling the world”…So besides the religious thing where anti-Semitic viewpoints thrive within fundamentalist, Far Right or extremist versions of Christianity and Islam, the success of these brilliant and community-orientated people is one of the biggest reasons the Jews have historically been hated and also partly why the Nazis wanted them gone.

Now the whole banking field is another area I have studied a lot and actually co-written a book on. And yes there are many leading Jews in this field but like I point out there are leading Jews in almost every field, so what. The Rothschilds are just one of dozens of banking clans some are Jewish but many are not Jewish. The Rothschilds are people I don’t like, but the way they are held up to represent Jews in general is a joke. There are good and bad people in all races. The fact that there are many Jews in the banking sector is being used by Neo Nazis and anti-Semites in general to try to sway the uneducated to believe the Jews are the problem instead of banking assholes in general.

MYTH #7: “I am pretty sure Hitler had racist ideas and saw Jewry were his main enemy. However, his main objective was NOT to wipe out the Jews from the face of the Earth. If they had departed from Germany it would have been reasonable for him.”

If you read Mein Kampf and listen to Hitler’s speeches, getting rid of the Jews was a huge part of his agenda. Nazi Germany’s desire for “racial purity” was very real and the concepts of the Final Solution are well documented. But did Hitler also have world domination and other wider goals not related to the Jews? Yes definitely, but that doesn’t change the fact that his expressed desire to get rid of these people and expel them not only from Germany but from the ever-expanding Third Reich is all on-the-record and official. No getting around that, buddy.

MYTH #8: “I have seen various figures about the numbers of Jews who died in Europe. It’s hard to know which statistic to believe! There is almost no unbiased data about this subject!”

The death tolls are estimates and cannot ever be 100% precise. Just like nobody can estimate how many exactly died in the Vietnam War (some say 3M Vietnamese and 58,000 Americans, others say 3.2M Vietnamese and 60,000 Americans). There will always be slight variances in death tolls of wars spanning entire continents, especially if you go as far back as WW2. But these slight variances are not remotely related to Holocaust Deniers who are trying to revise things (to support their hate-filled agendas) by claiming 90-100% of the Holocaust deaths (e.g. 5-6 million Jews) are some fairytale concocted years after the war. Rest assured the only books anywhere that talk about the tiny death toll numbers Holocaust Deniers believe in (i.e. thousands or hundreds of thousands instead of millions) are either Holocaust denying books written by the likes of David Irving and other anti-Semitic “historians” or Neo Nazi groups. There are no mainstream history books ever published now or anytime since 1945 that ever mention a death toll that isn’t in the millions for the Holocaust. Period.

If you go beyond the death tolls from the concentration camps, and study the open-air massacres in places like Lithuana and Poland (which tens or even hundreds of non-Jews have verified as being witnesses of) you will see millions were killed in these events alone. So to believe in Holocaust denialism you have to ignore perhaps 1 million different witnesses and survivors (from Jews to Gypsies to Germans to Poles to children etc, etc) who all verify the Holocaust. These independent testimonies, as well as the Nazi’s documentation of concentration camp detainees who died, all add up to the confirmed estimates of the Holocaust death toll (universally agreed upon by ALL mainstream historians as being 6 million Jews give or take a few hundred thousand either way, could be slightly more could be slightly less).

It is potentially the most well-documented crime of the 20th Century but remember to religious extremists, Nazi apologists or other anti-Semites it would never matter how much evidence you put in front of them they would always deny the Holocaust as to admit the event occurred is to stop believing the Jews are inferior to them.

For further proof, this site uses abundant evidence to successfully debunk all other arguments Holocaust Deniers raise: http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Holocaust_denial

Lastly, I’d like to add the motto of Holocaust Survivors: NEVER FORGET.

Peace,
James Morcan

    Although I don’t like you personally, having had contact with you in the past, this is a masterful article and the research is excellent. I haven’t been a Holocaust denier and have watched the growth of denials over the years with dismay. A brilliant expose of the untruths about the Holocaust.

    • Guido says:

      Why is it that every reference to Holocaust “deniers” must be augmented by the statement that they must have a racist/white supremacist/antisemitic agenda? Is it so outrageous to accept the possibility that these people simply do not believe war propaganda at face value? Why on earth should WWII be the only major conflict of world history that was ended by the righteous victors that told the undiluted truth about the vanquished? War propaganda is something we can and should expect. The point the “deniers” claim is not that the Third Reich was a cosy place and had no issues. The point is that WWII was not the simple struggle of Good versus Bad. Hitler was not the simple war monger that wanted to kill al Jews and conquer the world because he couldn´t help himself to be a pathological bad guy and Germany was predestinated to follow him on that path. That is a myth, concocted by Germany´s foes.
      Contrary to the manyfold statements, an abundance of facts and documentation exists that points away from the myth and depicts a different view that makes more sense. Unfortunately, that depiction is always regarded to be touching on moral and juridicial prosecution, as more than 70 years of indoctrination have left the common view that it takes a lack of common sense or a corrupted mind to doubt the common narrative.

  2. Guido says:

    This rant contains the old claims that have been debunked by “deniers” since decades. It’s not just about the victim figures, but also about the credibility of the alleged witnesses, the claims from the alleged confessions of people like Rudolf Höss and alleged nazi documentation. These claims have been extensively treated by “deniers” with facts that got hardly any attention from mainstream historiography. It may be so that the mainstream congratulates itself believing having proved the Holocaust narrative, but as soon as “deniers” produce counter expertise, they get to feel the might of state power or at least slander, and no real arguments that may prove them wrong. Go figure.

  3. Catherine says:

    I can’t understand why so many people so freely deny irrefutable evidence. If nothing else, the records kept by the Nazis themselves should give a clue of what went on.

    • Guido says:

      That’s the usual reply: the nazi’s kept impeccable records of just about everything. So, there is no room for denial then, right?
      Wrong. The records show some figures of people that may be moved, and some figures about how many arrived, but they do not state what really happened. That gap had been filled by the many “witness” statements, wartime propaganda and historian’s imagination.

      That is why revisionists have a strong point here. A lot seems to be irrefutably documented, but eventually, there is not that much really proven, unless you want to believe all these witnesses that have been affecting one another’s judgement.

      Look for the actual physical proof that the Holocaust would hold up: you will discover that this is rather slim. Much slimmer than has been suggested all these years since 1945.

      • lancemorcan says:

        Ah Guido, Guido, Guido…That hoary old chestnut. The denialists (let us not call them revisionists, that is far too respectable for people who are essentially anti-Semitic) trot that argument out at the drop of a hat.

        Here’s a quote from our book that I feel is appropriate. We can’t claim it for ourselves unfortunately. It was stated by one Koenraad Elst who said: “Negationism means the denial of historical crimes against humanity. It is not a reinterpretation of known facts, but the denial of known facts. The term negationism has gained currency as the name of a movement to deny a specific crime against humanity, the Nazi genocide on the Jews … Negationism is mostly identified with the effort at re-writing history in such a way that the fact of the Holocaust is omitted.”

        The truth of the Holocaust is there for all to see. All you need to do, is do the research.

  4. Guido says:

    The conventional Holocaust narrative is a myth, constructed by wartime parties (mainly the soviets) for obvious reasons: distracting from their own warmongering and war crimes. The western Allies joined in to appease Stalin for several reasons, and because they simply believed the stories they were fed by partisan sources, supported by western pundits.
    In the west, many atrocity tales could be debunked swiftly after the war, as the free press was investigating more openly than behind the Iron Curtain. Soon, the stories of homicidal gas chambers and other concocted horror tales about western concentration camps were neutralized. But the soviets had the power to blow up their propaganda on the eastern camps, not impeded by any western scrutiny.
    That’s why the eastern camps got labeled “death” camps. All the rumors, “eye witness” accounts, distorted observations and manipulated documents became munition for the big lie about the evil Third Reich, the satanic nazi’s and their march of death against civilization.

    A big lie indeed. So big that many people only for that reason alone feel urged to accept the myth at face value. How could it not be true? No force in the world could have made this up, right?
    What they overlook is the circumstances of the war. They perceive the Holocaust tale as a monolithic structure, evident from the onset in 1945. All evidence was in plain sight, the many witnesses all told the simple truth that confirmed what the documentation already indicated. What’s there not to believe?

    Well, here it is: the Holocaust myth postulates “convergent evidence”. The historians that have been driving the usual narrative admit that certainly not all details are sufficiently proven, so they resort to the claim of convergent indicative evidence. They take the plethora of small and large irrefutable details and summarize it all by stating that all these details point into the same direction: the Germans initiated a world war in which they tried to kill all Jews and everyone else who stood in their way.

    There is a big problem with this claim though: if you change the interpretation of these details in a consistent way that does not imply satanic intention but just practical considerations, the “convergence” theory points towards a completely different direction.

    You think that sane 21st century people, working smart phones and handling their mortgage plans sensibly, would not fall for an obvious hoax? We are too smart to believe a lie, we would look right through it?
    You may underestimate the general power of mass psychology. In former times, people believed that witches were real. Not because all the individuals came up spontaneously with that concept and agreed scientifically on the theory of witchcraft. No, people in general follow subconsciously what they perceive to be socially favorable. Why doubt what most others seem to accept? Who am I to be smarter than the rest, without having any other sources of information? If all others seem to accept a theory, then it cannot be just ludicrous. Maybe some details are under debate, but surely not the entire framework?

    It’s mass psychology talking here, not sensible scientific scrutiny. Shortly after the war, the defeated Germans were the perceived enemies, the perpetrators, the bad guys. They were responsible for the war (so it was perceived and propagated), so they surely were responsible for any other atrocity that was suggested. All these assumptions and suggestions were gathered into one big frame: Germany and the Germans are to be persecuted for everything that comes up, so the others come clean. And why not? The opportunity was there for the grasp.

    Documentation from that time is not as integrated as has been suggested all the time. Documentation is rather fragmented, affected by circumstances, possibly manipulated for obvious reasons, or simply concocted to make a point. Contradicting witness accounts were discarded, complying tales got through the filter and made it into the “overwhelming evidence”. Academics did not want to jeopardize their career by disputing the mainstream interpretation. It was obvious that this would only lead to broken relationships with funding institutions and damaged images. Just go with the flow and publicize what is to be expected. Don’t rock the boat.

    Politics depends also on the myth. Every now and then, European leaders declare that they do not tolerate any revisionism. Jurisdiction follows. Just try to disapprove of the Holocaust in Germany. Let’s see how long it takes to find yourself in front of the judge and then behind bars. That’s not exaggerated, it really happened and will continue to happen.
    But why? If the Holocaust narrative is based on verifiable evidence, then just beat the critics with that. You don’t have to resort to state violence to silence the opponents, accusing them of “incitement of the people” (an actual crime in Germany for which people got severely convicted).

    You feel the Holocaust is obvious and the evidence abundant and irrefutable? Why then is it so easy to debunk the conventional narrative on so many occasions, and why is the response to that so flimsy? Why are revisionists treated like actual criminals, why are they deprived from the basic human right to question pieces of (alleged) information? Why is the Holocaust like a state religion and not a historical issue that should be discussed sensibly and without the threat of judicial prosecution?

      We refer to people like you (Holocaust deniers) in our book’s Intro where we say: “Typically, these individuals may be conspiracy theorists; often they are amateur investigators and sometimes they’re simply casual readers. The one thing they have in common is they are predisposed to regurgitating ideas they source online and debating historically-proven events – events like the Holocaust – as if they are up for debate at all.”

      And as we say early on in our book: “Holocaust deniers always have anti-Semitic beliefs and sympathies somewhere inside them. Always.”

      Guido, we don’t intend engaging with you hereafter as we don’t engage with deniers any more than we engage with other misguided souls. Don’t use this site as a depository for your hatred of Jews, or for any group of people, or we will be forced to block you, which, in the interests of freedom of speech, we’d rather not have to resort to. Suffice to say, you have been warned.
