In our new release book DEBUNKING HOLOCAUST DENIAL THEORIES: Two Non-Jews Affirm the Historicity of the Nazi Genocide, we identify those fools who challenge the detailed and indisputable historicity of the Holocaust as people who generally fall into two distinct camps: deniers and the more common revisionists. The deniers, of course, say the entire crime of the Nazis never occurred and is all just a result of post-war propaganda while the more common revisionists try to downgrade the number of Jews killed from six million to as few as 50,000.

We remind our readers of the basic definition of the Holocaust, which mainstream historians universally  agree upon: “The Holocaust (aka the Shoah) was a genocide in which Nazi Germany killed approximately six million Jews between 1933 and 1945.” The Shoah, incidentally, is from the Hebrew HaShoah, which appropriately translates as “the catastrophe.”

Note the revisionists are quick to imply that of the tens of thousands, or the hundreds of thousands, of Jews they acknowledge died, few if any of these “casualties of war” died in the Nazis’ infamous gas chambers.

So, essentially revisionists are still denying the historicity of the Holocaust. Clearly, there is very little difference between saying 95% of the Holocaust never happened and saying it never happened at all. For this reason, we only use the term Holocaust deniers as we feel the term Holocaust revisionists gives them far too much respect and makes them sound intellectual or even academic.

“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.” –Koenraad Elst, Negationism in India: Concealing the Record of Islam, The Voice of India

We have studied all sides of this so-called debate. We’ve read Holocaust survivors’ books and watched documentary footage of the actual Holocaust; we’ve listened to recordings of Hitler’s speeches and those of other Nazis; we’ve watched footage of talks given by notorious Holocaust deniers including shamed historian David Irving; we’ve studied WW2 history and have met and interviewed Jewish survivors of the concentration camps. And we can assure you of one thing…

Holocaust deniers always have anti-Semitic beliefs and sympathies somewhere inside them. Always

… In our opinion, psychiatrist Walter Reich, former director of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and now professor of international affairs at George Washington University, summarized the underlying reason for Holocaust denial best when he wrote in a July 1993 article in The New York Times that, for anti-Semites, “the Holocaust is an infuriatingly inconvenient fact of history. After all, the Holocaust has generally been recognized as one of the most terrible crimes that ever took place, and surely the very emblem of evil in the modern age. If that crime was a direct result of anti-Semitism taken to its logical end, then anti-Semitism itself, even when expressed in private conversation, is inevitably discredited among most people. What better way to rehabilitate anti-Semitism, make anti-Semitic arguments seem once again respectable in civilized discourse and even make it acceptable for governments to pursue anti-Semitic policies than by convincing the world that the great crime for which anti-Semitism was blamed simply never happened— indeed, that it was nothing more than a frame-up invented by the Jews, and propagated by them through their control of the media? What better way, in short, to make the world safe again for anti-Semitism than by denying the Holocaust?”

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

******************************************

Some critics have asked us why we felt the need to write a book debunking Holocaust denial theories – the implication being that everyone believes the Holocaust happened as mainstream historians say it happened, and that the events of that ghastly occurrence have not been greatly exaggerated and are beyond dispute.

Holocaust exaggerated? Really?

 

Unfortunately, it’s a fact that many people don’t believe the Holocaust ever happened. This was a prime motivator for us to write and release DEBUNKING HOLOCAUST DENIAL THEORIES: Two Non-Jews Affirm the Historicity of the Nazi Genocide — a new release book that is already proving to be a thorn in the side of the deniers, and which, predictably, is drawing some flak.

An excerpt from this book’s introduction follows:

It’s a fact many people worldwide don’t believe the Holocaust ever happened. There is considerable documentation available to support this statement. For example, an exhaustive global poll conducted in 2014 by the ADL revealed that of those who have heard of the Holocaust, 32% (almost one third) believe it is a myth or has been greatly exaggerated.

More alarming still is that 26% of those surveyed harbored anti-Semitic attitudes. An interesting twist on this statistic is that 70% of those who harbored such attitudes “Have never actually met a Jewish person.”

The ADL’s poll – ADL Global 100: A Survey of Attitudes Toward Jews in Over 100 Countries Around the World – was no small survey. The countries surveyed included nine of the 10 most populous countries in the world.

Another revelation was that only 54% of those polled had heard of the Holocaust. Referring to the ADL poll, Holocaust survivor Martin Greenfield wrote in a January 2015 article (as reported by Fox News) that “Knowledge of Auschwitz is likely even more limited, particularly among young people. Past surveys have shown that nearly half of Britons had never heard of Auschwitz. Some schoolchildren even thought Auschwitz was a type of beer.” Greenfield summarized the issue well when he said, “For far too many, the Holocaust remains a mystery.”

Polls aside, Amazon and other online booksellers offer numerous Holocaust denial titles, some of which are selling fairly well and appear to have a cult following at least. A few of the more popular Holocaust denial books include: Did Six Million Really Die?, The Hoax of the Twentieth Century: The Case Against the Presumed Extermination of European Jewry, The Six Million: Fact or Fiction, The Myth of the Extermination of the Jews  and Auschwitz: The First Gassing: Rumor and Reality.

If you, dear reader, are unfamiliar with the Holocaust, read on – and be prepared to be shocked.

If, however, you subscribe to Holocaust denial theories or are in the process of being swayed by the denialists’ arguments, we would implore you to carefully analyze your sources, check the credentials of those feeding you such extreme concepts and (most importantly) ask some key questions.

Key questions would include:

-Is it possible the authors of such ‘information’ have a subtle agenda?

-Do they speak of Jews as if they are inferior, lesser beings or even enemies?

-Do they try to shift blame for the Holocaust away from Hitler and the Nazis?

-Could it be the opinions you are digesting come from biased or hate-filled individuals?

Whatever the case, for those who believe in Holocaust denial theories, we challenge those beliefs, notions and concepts in the chapters ahead. All we ask is that you keep an open mind. After all, factual information can always withstand intense scrutiny and dissection whereas lies and falsehoods cannot. Right?

We believe the Holocaust is an extremely important historical event humanity must learn from if it is to survive let alone achieve world peace. It’s not just a Jewish issue – it’s a human one. If more recent genocides in Rwanda, Cambodia and the former Yugoslavia are any guide, the lessons of Nazi Germany have not yet been learnt. We suspect German philosopher of the late Enlightenment Friedrich Hegel was right when he said, “The only thing we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history.”

All truth-seekers should study the genocide that was the Holocaust and ask themselves how on Earth this event was allowed to occur, keeping in mind allowed is the correct term as there was no shortage of witnesses, including those all over Europe who stood by and did nothing to intervene.

If those bystanders hadn’t just stood by, perhaps the history books would tell a different story.

We have had the privilege of meeting Holocaust survivors. Seeing the Nazi identification numbers tattooed on their arms and listening to their personal accounts of the atrocities that occurred inside and outside the concentration camps during WW2, makes a powerful impact. It changes a person on the inside.

Unfortunately – and this is the key point – those last remaining Holocaust survivors are now in their twilight years, and as they fade away, the anti-Semites seem to be strengthening in their resolve to challenge the historicity of the Holocaust. Once the last survivors have passed on, the battle to preserve the truth will surely be more difficult.

With the publication of this book we, as non-Jews, are doing our small part to stand up for the truth. So let us state unequivocally here and now: the Holocaust happened EXACTLY as per the history books. Period. Fact. No debate whatsoever. Lance & James Morcan

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

 

*********************************************

Jewish and mainstream media are picking up on this week’s news release announcing that the recent publication of a book by a New Zealand father-and-son writing team debunking Holocaust denial theories has drawn the ire of two of the world’s leading Holocaust deniers.

The article reads as follows:

When Papamoa-based publishing company Sterling Gate Books published “DEBUNKING HOLOCAUST DENIAL THEORIES: Two Non- Jews Affirm the Historicity of the Nazi Genocide”, authors Lance and James Morcan didn’t expect to see another book released with an identical cover image and similar title slamming their book.
But that’s exactly what happened when UK company Castle Hill Publishers published “Fail: ‘Debunking Holocaust Denial Theories’: How James and Lance Morcan Botched Their Attempt to Affirm the Historicity of the Nazi Genocide”, by denier Carlo Mattogno, author of numerous books and papers championing Holocaust denialism.
DEBUNKING HOLOCAUST DENIAL THEORIES: Two Non-Jews Affirm the Historicity of the Nazi Genocide by [Morcan, James, Morcan, Lance]   Fail:
The Morcans’ book (left) and Mattogno’s book (right).
Mattogno’s book includes a foreword by none other than the infamous anti-Semitic author/publisher Germar Rudolf who established Castle Hill Publishers and who, “in 2005 was arrested in the U.S., deported to Germany and sentenced to 44 months imprisonment for his publishing activities.” That’s according to an article on the publisher’s own blog at codoh.com, which openly promotes the philosophies of the Committee for Open Debate on the Holocaust. In reality, Rudolf served a two year prison sentence in Germany for inciting racial hatred, disparaging the dead, and for libel.
The Morcans’ book “Debunking Holocaust Denial Theories”, with foreword by Holocaust survivor Hetty E. Verolme, was written in close consultation with Holocaust survivors and World War Two historians.
In a review on Amazon one of the Holocaust survivors, author Peter Kubicek, recommends the Morcans’ book “to everyone who has an open mind and wishes to learn more about this important topic.” Kubicek also states that the “book is the result of prodigtious research.”
As the book’s blurb states, “No stone is 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. One by one, the various arguments Holocaust deniers use to try to discredit wartime records are carefully scrutinized and then systematically disproven.”
The author of published “Fail: ‘Debunking Holocaust Denial Theories’” takes issue with this, claiming “their knowledge even of their own side’s source material was dismal, and the way they backed up their misleading or false claims was pitifully inadequate”. He then devotes the entirety of his book to debunking the Morcans’ claims chapter by chapter.
Sydney-based James Morcan said today that he and his father consider the publication of a book debunking their own work a back-handed compliment of sorts.
“For a criminally convicted Nazi-apologist and an anti-Semitic author to go to the enormous trouble of writing and publishing a book analysing ours to this extent shows they consider the facts we present a serious threat to their publishing activities and their bogus Holocaust denial claims,” says James. “It essentially signals to anyone with an ounce of common sense that the historical facts we present in our book are indisputable.”
James says the comments of one Amazon reviewer best sum up his opinion of “that other book.” He refers to a 1-star review by a Holocaust survivor, which reads, “Whenever verifiable historical facts are presented, there are always some doubting Thomases who claim that the facts are wrong: in this case it’s anti-Semites and Holocaust-deniers. They are always ready to crawl from under a rock.”
“I couldn’t have put it any better myself,” says James.
