DEBUNKING HOLOCAUST DENIAL THEORIES: Two Non-Jews Affirm the Historicity of the Nazi Genocide

 

One of the most common myths we address is that it would have been impossible to kill so many millions of people at Auschwitz and the other existing death camps over the course of the Holocaust. As one denier insists, “The six million figure would be almost impossible to achieve. It would have required one hell of a meat grinder, and a superhuman effort, to kill such an enormous number of people.”

In the following excerpt from Debunking Holocaust Denial Theories  we answer this assertion:

Actually, 11 million people were killed in the Holocaust – six million of whom were Jews. And note that three million Jews (50% of total Jewish fatalities) are estimated to have died in the Nazi extermination camps – victims of overwork, starvation, beatings, experimentation and, of course, the dreaded gas chambers.

This mistaken assumption that all Holocaust victims died in concentration camps, either by gassing or other means, is even perpetuated by supposedly intelligent people who have been “studying” the Holocaust for decades, or so they claim. People like Mark Weber, one of the world’s most recognizable Holocaust deniers. Weber, according to his mostly self-written bios online at least, has studied history at the University of Illinois, the University of Munich, Portland State University and Indiana University. It’s not clear to us why he felt the need to study history at so many universities. Nor could we verify what degrees he has.

Weber, who is the founder of the classy-sounding but in reality Holocaust-denying Institute For Historical Review, repeatedly makes this very mistake (assuming all six million Jewish Holocaust victims were gassed to death) in an essay he wrote titled Is the Holocaust a Hoax? The article ran in its entirety on the Bible Believers website.

To state, as he does, “Though six million Jews supposedly died in the gas chambers” is Weber’s first mistake, and it’s a biggie. No legitimate historian has ever claimed, or even remotely implied, that six million Jews died in gas chambers.

And to state, “Even if we threw away all the evidence and accounted for every so-called gas chamber, it would have taken 68 YEARS to accomplish gassing six million Jews!” is Weber’s second mistake as his genius-like mathematical estimates here are based on his first incorrect assumption.

Reporting on the rest of his clearly masterful and scholarly investigation, Weber goes on to conclude the Holocaust is definitely a hoax. He does so categorically and without providing any evidence – unless you accept Corinthians 13:6 and other Biblical passages he quotes as evidence – and he states that “The time has come for Christian scholars and pastors to recognize this, and to stop perpetrating a hoax.” He says a lot more besides, but we won’t bore you with any more of his diatribe.

An almost verbatim mistake regarding six million gassings is made by another American Holocaust denier, Pastor Steven L Anderson, founder of the Faithful Word Baptist Church. In a video presentation he uploaded to YouTube titled Did the Holocaust Really Happen?, Pastor Anderson says “The issue is whether or not six million Jews died in gas chambers and were subsequently cremated.”

No Pastor, that’s not the issue at all. If you want to debate history with the big boys then perhaps you should spend a little less time preaching and go back to school.

Names like Auschwitz, Dachau, Treblinka, Belsen and Sobibor have a ghastly ring to them and will serve as a permanent reminder of Man’s inhumanity to Man, but more about these sites later.

Besides the concentration camps, Nazi death squads and their European associates rounded up and massacred Jews in towns and cities Europe-wide. Referred to by historians as “open-air killings,” around 1.5 million Jews are estimated to have been murdered in this fashion, with machine guns being the preferred instrument of death.

Just research the amount of open-air massacres in Nazi-occupied Lithuania (where 80% of the country’s 220,000 Jews were exterminated in one year alone), Ukraine and Poland if you need confirmation. And keep in mind the wholesale slaughter wasn’t limited to the aforementioned countries. Most of these massacres had numerous witnesses, are supported by photographic evidence and have been verified beyond any shadow of a doubt.

Our latest non-fiction book Debunking Holocaust Denial Theories  is the result of the disturbing trend within some sectors of society to deny, diminish or otherwise undermine the historicity of the Holocaust – that cataclysmic event that saw the extermination of some six million Jews (as in the ethno-religious group of people) by the Nazis before and during World War Two.

 

Flashback to January 1945…The entrance to Auschwitz concentration camp.

 

Besides the obvious groups like white supremacists, neo-Nazis and elements of Islamic and Christian fundamentalist communities, there is perhaps one group in the 21st Century more responsible for perpetuating the myth that the Holocaust never happened or has been vastly exaggerated: conspiracy theorists.

We can speak with some authority regarding this as, besides being filmmakers and novelists, we have written a series of controversial non-fiction books that have led to us being loosely labeled conspiracy theorists. This despite the fact that in these non-fiction titles we mainly focus on factual topics or what we term “underground knowledge” – events, strategies, campaigns, deals and programs that have been overlooked or underreported by 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.”

We generally research and write about topics supported by strong evidence substantiated in court cases, affidavits, declassified government files and the like rather than pure speculation. Important issues such as: banking fraud and high finance crimes, which decimate communities worldwide; media manipulation, which governments and corporations engage in shamelessly and which sometimes leads to unnecessary wars; medical corruption, Big Pharma, Third World poverty, the War on Drugs, the Military Industrial Complex…The list goes on.

Oftentimes, the abovementioned issues – and quite a few more besides – are conspiracy fact, or conspiracy reality, rather than theory. We believe it’s crucial that people know about these issues and understand the difference between fact and theory in this context.

So, we hear you ask, what does this have to do with denying, diminishing or otherwise undermining the historicity of the Holocaust?

Well, as authors who focus on unearthing and promoting underground knowledge, we are sometimes approached by certain types of individuals who, collectively, form a dangerous element in society. 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.

Of course, the Internet is the perfect medium for bigots to capture naïve and impressionable minds. Often, those who buy in to the lies and misinformation these extremists spread are young, but not always.

We have written extensively about the Holocaust and its dark legacy. This no doubt explains why, in the last few years, we have received frequent emails from people – some of whom are even authors themselves – who question whether the Holocaust occurred as per the history books, and we quite often receive hate mail from anti-Semites.

If you are asking yourself whether Holocaust denial is really that big a problem outside of society’s lunatic fringes, we would urge you to think about it in the wider context. While it is probably true the numbers of official neo-Nazis and vociferous deniers are not a direct threat to rational thinking or to the historicity of the Holocaust, many people – as in a big slice of the world’s population so studies reveal – silently support such thinking and thereby buy in to this sinister underground brand of anti-Semitism. Such people usually keep their beliefs to themselves unless they are around like minds as they believe it’s not “politically correct” to talk about the “true nature” of the Jews and their so-called Holocaust industry.

It’s our assessment that support for these alternative versions of the Holocaust is far stronger than even the most frightening poll statistics show. For every one hard core neo-Nazi or outspoken anti-Semite, there are in our estimation at least 100 silent believers who have inadvertently been suckered into the twisted belief systems of the aforementioned.
