Debunking the deniers

The following article promoting our new release book appears on J-Wire, the digital Jewish news daily for Australia and New Zealand. The timing coincides with Yom HaShoah, Israel’s day of remembrance (May 4/5) for the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust. Here’s the article unabridged:

A New Zealand father and son have published a book debunking Holocaust deniers’ theories.

Coinciding with Yom Hashoah “Debunking Holocaust Denial Theories” has been released written by non-Jews Lance and James Morcan. The book’s sub-title is  “Two Non-Jews Affirm the Historicity of the Nazi Genocide”.

The book was written in close consultation with Holocaust survivors and World War Two historians. The writers say that no stone was left unturned in meticulously verifying the historical facts of the genocide. The Morcans present a wide array of sources including Nazi documentation, eyewitness accounts, scientific reports and shocking photographic evidence to shut down the debate deniers wish to create.

‘Debunking Holocaust Denial Theories’,  published by Sterling Gate Books, is already attracting critical acclaim.

In her review Pam Blevins, Regional Museum Educator at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, describes it as “Excellent book to debunk denial theories”.

Holocaust-ebook-coverMs Blevin’s review reads in part: “It is well researched and well thought out… In this well documented book, they (the authors) attack five areas deniers talk about and prove the deniers wrong… They discuss the 6 million number figure that deniers claim is wrong; the gas chamber exterminations that are claimed to be false… They use Nazi documents, survivor accounts, eyewitness accounts, scientific tests and results, and photographs (almost entirely Nazi photographs) to prove their case… The book is a must read for students of the Holocaust and World War II as well as for deniers or those who are conflicted as to the authenticity of the Holocaust.”

Speaking from Sydney, Australia, today, author and filmmaker James Morcan says the book was inspired by the alarming rise in anti-Semitism globally.

“We endeavour to show readers that anti-Semitism is not only the root cause of every form of Holocaust denial, but also the reason for the relentless persecution of the Jews since Biblical times,” says Morcan. “Hopefully, our book will give the deniers something to think about as well as helping those who wish to learn more about WW2 and the Nazi extermination camps.”

James Morcan told J-Wire: “The cover photo was taken at the Ebensee concentration camp in Austria.

There were no gas chambers at that particular camp, but the victims were used for horrific “scientific” experiments.
Many victims died slow, painful deaths at the hands of Mengele-type Nazi doctors…
I have spent much of this year to date looking at all the photographic evidence from the Holocaust.
It has been traumatic even to look at all the photos from the genocide.
I co-wrote this book with my father Lance Morcan (a former journalist) and as per the subtitle, we are both gentiles. We wrote it in close consultation with Holocaust survivors especially our good friend New York-based survivor Peter Kubicek (author of Memories of Evil: Recalling a World War II Childhood).
 
Our intentions with this book are to aid in ending Holocaust denial for good and also combat rising anti-Semitism.”
