Why do people deny the Holocaust, the most documented event in the history of the world?

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, World War II — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 10:13 am

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC has a website, which has a page on Holocaust Denial, with this headline: COMBATING HOLOCAUST DENIAL: ORIGINS OF HOLOCAUST DENIAL

This quote is from the USHMM website page about Holocaust Denial:

The Holocaust was a state secret in Nazi Germany. The Germans wrote down as little as possible. Most of the killing orders were verbal, particularly at the highest levels. Hitler’s order to kill Jews was issued only on a need-to-know basis. The Nazi leaders generally avoided detailed planning of killing operations, preferring to proceed in a systematic but often improvised manner. The Germans destroyed most documentation that did exist before the end of the war. The documents that survived and related directly to the killing program were virtually all classified and stamped “Geheime Reichssache” (Top Secret), requiring special handling and destruction to prevent capture by the enemy. Heinrich Himmler, Reich Leader of the SS and Chief of the German Police, said in a secret speech to SS generals in Posen in 1943 that the mass murder of the European Jews was a secret, never to be recorded. 

Oops, Himmler has been cut off in mid-Sentence again.  I previously blogged here about the Posen speech which is routinely cut off in mid-sentence by the Holohoaxers.

The USHMM article on Holocaust Denial continues with this statement:

In order to hide the killing operation as much as possible from the uninitiated, Hitler ordered that the killings not be spoken of directly in German documentation or in public statements. Instead, the Germans used codenames and neutral-sounding terms for the killing process. In Nazi parlance, for example, “action” (Aktion) referred to a violent operation against Jewish (or other) civilians by German security forces; “resettlement to the East” (Umsiedlung nach dem Osten) referred to the forced deportation of Jewish civilians to killing centers in German-occupied Poland; and “special treatment” (Sonderbehandlung) meant killing.

So it turns out that the Nazis had planned the current “Holocaust Denial” from the very beginning.

There is a Holocaust Museum at the house in Wannsee, 50 miles from Berlin, where the Nazis planned the Holocaust. The dining room of the house, where the conference was held is shown in the photo above.   The minutes of the meeting were not found until many years later.

An excerpt from Heinrich Himmler’s famous speech at Posen on October 4, 1943 is quoted in the museum display:

…”The Jewish people are being exterminated.” every party member says. “Of course, it’s in our program, elimination of the Jews, extermination, we’ll do it all right.” Among all those who talk like this, no one has witnessed it, no one has seen it through. Most of you will know, however, what it means to see 100 corpses lying together, or 500, or 1,000. To have stuck it out and at the same time to have remained decent – aside from a few exceptions succumbing to human weakness – that has made us tough. This is a page of glory in our history, unwritten and never to be written…

As quoted by the museum, Himmler’s speech is cut off in mid sentence. According to Holocaust historian Martin Gilbert, the full sentence from Himmler’s speech is as follows:

This is an unwritten and never-to-be-written page of glory in our history, for we know how difficult it would be for us if today under bombing raids and the hardships and deprivations of war – if we were still to have the Jews in every city as secret saboteurs, agitators, and inciters. If the Jews were still lodged in the body of the German nation, we would probably by now have reached the stage of 1917-18.”

The last part of the sentence is a reference to 1917-18 during World War I when the Jewish labor leaders called a strike of ammunition workers in 1917 and the Jewish Social Democrats overthrew the established government and declared a Republic in Germany in 1918. The Nazis believed that the Jews were responsible for their defeat in World War I because Jewish Social Democrats had signed the Armistice and the Treaty of Versailles. The part of the sentence, that the museum display cut out, explains why the Nazis made the decision to “transport the Jews to the east” six months after they attacked the Soviet Union.

“Holocaust denier” wins case in Greece when his conviction is overturned

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 1:43 pm

You can read about Konstaninos Plevris, a “Holocaust denier”  in this article: http://www.darkmoon.me/2013/nterview-with-a-greek-holocaust-denier/

This quote is from the article cited above:

Greek nationalist lawyer and self-confessed anti-Semite, Konstaninos Plevris, author of The Jews: The Whole Truth, was initially found guilty of inciting racial hatred against Jews in December 2007, this verdict being based entirely on outspoken quotations found in the above-mentioned 1400-page book.  [...]

Plevris appealed the court ruling, and on the 27th of March 2009 the court of appeals overturned all charges against him. His complete exoneration by the most distinguished legal brains in Greek jurisprudence was to prompt angry charges from Jewish sources that there had been a “miscarriage of justice”.
However, it was not easy to prove that admiration of Adolf Hitler or doubts about the Holocaust could in any way equate with incitement to violence against Jews; nor that failure to love Jews or hold them in high esteem was in itself a crime.

The article cited above includes an interview with Plevris.  This quote is from the interview:

KONSTANINOS PLEVRIS: Three years ago, I published in Athens my book “The Jews: The Whole Truth.” (Picks up book and shows it to camera.) This is 1,400 pages long. This book is full of facts, proofs, references to 270 authors, writers, other books and of course photos. Immediately after the publication of my book, the Central Council of Jews in Greece and the European Jewish Congress started a campaign against me. They went to the prime minister of Greece asking me to be condemned. They went to the Justice Department, and, after three years of legal fights, I have finally won 100 percent in the Supreme Court of Athens. Justice prevailed; the court proved itself to be independent and not under Jewish control.

As far as I know, Plevris is the first person in the history of the world to have had a conviction of “Holocaust Denial” overturned.  This could have a horrendous effect on the Holocaust denial laws in 18 countries, but not in Germany.  In Germany, there is no way that you can beat a Holocaust denial rap because truth is no defense.

This quote is from an interview with Plevris:

PLEVRIS: First of all we have to use common sense. If the Jews are telling the truth, if they are right in what they say, they don’t need to legally penalize so-called “Holocaust Deniers.” If you’re right about something and someone denies it, you can prove that he is wrong. But the Jews use the penal law. This is unbelievable to me. [...]
If the Jews are right, they are obliged to accept a public dialogue. This they refuse. It’s not only forbidden to deny that the “Holocaust” occurred as such — even to doubt it is a crime! In Germany and Austria you are not even allowed to express doubts about the “Holocaust.” Unfortunately, there is no more any Deutschland. Instead there is “Judenland.” If you go to Germany, you will see “Holocaust” monuments and memorials everywhere.

Here is one final quote from the article:

During my trial [Prevris] said to the court: “Look, these people claim that they are God’s chosen people, and they have the nerve to accuse me of being a racist! How can I be the racist here when it is they who claim that they, the Jews, are chosen by God?”

The photo below is included in the article about Holocaust denial.

The photo above is very controversial. You can read about the photo on this website: http://www.eliewieseltattoo.com/the-evidence/photographic-evidence/buchenwald/

I have blogged several times about inappropriate photos being used in Holocaust articles. The photo above, which is a fake photo, should not be used in a story about Holocaust denial because it is FAKE, FAKE, FAKE.

At least 50 students denied the Holocaust in Rialto critical thinking essays

According to a news article, which you can read in full here, at least 50 of the Ridalto 8th grade students, who participated in a “critical thinking” assignment about the Holocaust, wrote an essay in which they expressed doubt about the Holocaust, or flatly denied it.

What a revolting development this is! [1]

This quote is from the article: “To write the in-class essay, students were given printouts from About.com, History.com and Holocaust denial site BibleBelievers.org.au.

I went to the BibleBelievers.org.au website and read their “Holocaust Denial” web page.   Very clever!  Click on the link and see for yourself.  The article starts out by mentioning Fred Lauchter. As everyone knows this is the kiss of death because Lauchter has been thoroughly discredited by the Holocaust Believers. Fred doesn’t have a degree in Engineering, so what does he know!

Years ago, I put up a page on my scrapbookpages.com website, on which I quoted the Leuchter Report on the Dachau gas chamber, with links to my Dachau photos to illustrate what he was talking about.  I got a lot of flak for doing this, and I had to refuse many requests, from Holocaust Believers, to take down this page.

This quote is from the news article:

Rialto Unified School District administrators, besieged by criticism after the assignment became public in May, claimed at the time that none of the students who completed the assignment questioned or denied the Holocaust, but a survey of the students’ work by this news organization found numerous examples of students expressing doubt or flatly denying that the Holocaust occurred.

[...]

Administrators have said the district’s roughly 2,000 eighth-grade students were assigned the essays in April as a critical thinking project. After the assignment became public, the district was roundly criticized by angry parents, Jewish advocacy groups and scholars and members of the state Legislature.

“Students got high praise and grades for writing that the Holocaust was a hoax. I’m sick about that, I’m sick about that,” said Rabbi Suzanne Singer of Temple Beth El in Riverside. “It’s worse than I thought it was.”

At the time that the news came out, about this story, I was highly suspicious of the claim that none of the students had written an essay in which they had expressed any Holocaust denial.  I wrote several posts about this subject, including this blog post: http://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2014/05/10/critical-thinking-assignment-started-with-the-study-of-the-diary-of-anne-frank/

This morning, I went to the About.com website and checked it out.  I decided to see what About.com says about the Dachau gas chamber: http://history1900s.about.com/library/holocaust/bldachau26.htm

I have the same photo, which is shown by About.com, on this page of my website:  http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/GasChamber/disinfection01.html

If you want to stay out of prison in 19 countries, you should get your Holocaust education from About.com.  Don’t be reading my website, or you could wind up in prison for 5 years.

At Auschwitz-Birkenau, the “execution chambers” are now “roped off and in ruins”

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 11:24 am

I have visited the ruins of the Krema II and Krema III gas chambers at the Auschwitz-Birkenau memorial site on two separate occasions: in September 1998 and again in October 2005.

I have not been back to Auschwitz since 2005, but I have long suspected that the ruins of the Krema II gas chamber have now been roped off, to prevent anyone from climbing down into the ruins. My suspicion was confirmed when I read an article about tourist travel to Auschwitz-Birkenau here.

Seeing the inside of Krema II causes people, who try this stunt, to be instantly turned into “Holocaust deniers.”  Don’t let this happen to you.

My 2005 photo of the ruins of Krema II is shown below.

Three people, that I know of, have descended into a hole in the roof of Krema II, shown in my photo above, and have emerged as Holocaust deniers.

Thankfully, the ruins of Krema II have now been roped off to prevent any more people from climbing down into the ruins of the gas chamber.  Two of the three people, who descended into the gas chamber, before it was roped off, were put into prison for Holocaust denial, which is now a crime in 19 countries.  The third person, Fred Leuchter, barely escaped prison. He is an American citizen, which is the only thing that saved him; he has since gone into hiding.

This quote is from the website, cited above:

Leaving the row of prison blocks [in the main Auschwitz camp], visitors exit past watchtowers and barbed wire, arriving at the former ammunition bunker that was repurposed as the camp’s first gas chamber and crematorium. Jews from the Silesian region and Soviet POW’s were put to death here. Two of the three furnaces used to cremate the bodies of murdered Silesian Jews and Soviet POW’s are displayed. Candles flicker by flowers placed in remembrance in front of the open oven doors.

In the above quote, the “first gas chamber and crematorium” is a reference to the gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp.

Krema I gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp

Krema I gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp

The quote below is from this page of my website: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/History/Articles/Birkenau01.html

The first gas chamber, that was used at the Auschwitz-Birkenau complex, was in a room that was being used as a morgue in Krema I, the crematorium in the main camp. The gas chamber in Krema I was only used between September 1941 and March 1942, according to the Auschwitz Museum, although the ovens were used for cremation until 1943.

Jews were gassed in Krema I only during a six-week period in 1942; the rest of the time, it was used for gassing Soviet Prisoners of War. According to Jean-Claude Pressac, who wrote a book entitled “Auschwitz: Technique and Operation of the Gas Chambers,” there was a total of approximately 10,000 people gassed in Krema I, which had a capacity of 600 to 800 persons for each gassing. By the end of March 1942, the gassing operation was moved to the Auschwitz II camp, also known as Birkenau. Two old farm houses at the western end of the Birkenau camp were used for gassing while four new gas chambers were under construction.

I wrote about the Sachsenhausen gas chamber on this page of my website: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Sachsenhausen/ConcentrationCamp/GasChamber.html

Don’t start denying that there was a gas chamber at Sachsenhausen; it was proved in “the Berlin trial.”

According to the Auschwitz Museum, the first prisoners to be gassed at Auschwitz were 600 Soviet Prisoners of War and 250 sick prisoners who were killed with Zyklon-B gas on September 3, 1941 in Cell No. 27 in Block 11, the prison block in the main Auschwitz camp.

Keep in mind that Auschwitz was liberated by Soviet soldiers, so the Soviets had the opportunity to tell their story first.  The Soviets arrived on January 27th, after the Germans had abandoned the camp on January 18th.

The Soviet story is that the Germans sneaked back into the Auschwitz camp TWICE and blew up the Krema II and Krema III gas chambers, in order to destroy the evidence of gassing. (Or did some Soviet soldiers visit the camp on January 20th, and blow up the gas chambers?)

Thankfully, the Germans did not destroy the Krema I gas chamber in the main camp.  Tourists can see the Krema I gas chamber, although the room is now roped off, so that no one can walk around in the room, as I was able to do in 2005.

Rialto students will visit the Museum of Tolerance to learn the truth about the Holocaust

Filed under: California, Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 8:00 am

Just a short message today to give a heads up to the students in Southern California, who were recently assigned to do an essay, using critical thinking.  The students have now been assigned to visit the Museum of Tolerance at the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles, CA. so that they can learn the truth about the Holocaust, after they were subjected to the horror of reading a Holocaust denial website.

One of the displays at the MOT, which really impressed me, was the one which showed babies being thrown out of a third story window by the Nazis. You can read what one visitor said about this display here.

This quote is from the web page, cited above:

… a family was watching from behind a fence as their niece (who had given birth 7 days prior) was rounded into the cattle cars with other hospital patients. After she left the family noted that an officer appeared in a window a few stories up. He began to toss babies out the window to their death into waiting cattle car beneath. Babies!

The other display, that I can’t forget, is the one which shows the drawings done by Simon Wiesenthal.  I blogged about these drawings on this blog post:

http://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2012/05/18/fake-holocaust-pictures-the-legacy-of-simon-wiesenthal/

A word to the wise:  there are guards at the Museum of Tolerance, listening to every word you say.  Don’t be making comments about the displays, or you could wind up being put on trial for Holocaust denial. Not in America, which still has free speech, but you could be renditioned to Germany for trial.  If you don’t know what renditioned means, read my blog post about it at http://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2012/05/11/new-book-by-germar-rudolf-resistance-is-obligatory/

That’s all, folks. Happy Mother’s Day

It’s time for some “critical thinking”

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, TV shows — Tags: , , , , — furtherglory @ 10:18 am

The story of the “critical thinking” assignment in a California school goes on, ad nauseam. In today’s news, I read this article here.

The quote below is from the article:

In December, a small group of eighth-grade teachers developed an assignment for the districts 2,000 eighth-grade students. The assignment was a lesson in using critical thinking, one of the Common Core requirements for students. Students were asked to write an “argumentative essay” about the Holocaust, and if it actually occurred or if it was “merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain wealth.”

The photo shown below was included (in a smaller size) in the article.

Americans viewing the bodies of prisoners at Ohrdruf

The photo above shows General Eisenhower in the center of the American soldiers who are viewing the bodies allegedly left out at Ohrdruf when the camp was evacuated on April 2, 1945.  I have this photo on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Ohrdruf/index.html

This quote is from the page of my website, which is cited above:

In the photo above, the prisoners have been partially covered by blankets because their pants had been pulled down, an indication that these men might have been killed by their fellow prisoners after the Germens left. The first Americans on the scene [on April 4, 1945] said that the blood was still wet. The liberators all agreed that these prisoners had been shot, although some witnesses said that they had been shot in the neck, while others said that they had been mowed down by machine gun fire.

The American soldiers were told by Ohrdruf survivors that these prisoners had been shot by the SS on April 2nd because they had run out of trucks for transporting sick prisoners out of the camp, but there were sick prisoners still inside the barracks when the Americans arrived.

The above quote, from my website scrapbookpages.com, is a prime example of why students should do some critical thinking, meaning that they should study both sides of the Holocaust issue, not just the Holocaust Believers side.

If you still don’t get it, I will explain it more clearly:  The American generals were told that these bodies were bodies of prisoners who had been killed by the Germans before they left on April 2nd. Yet the blood was still wet, when the Americans arrived on April 4th and the bodies had been covered by blankets to hide the fact that the bodies had been mutilated.  The story told by some of the escaped prisoners, who had come back to the camp, was that these prisoners had been killed by the Germans because they had run out of trucks to transport them to the main Buchenwald camp.

The fact that this photo is shown in a news article, bemoaning the fact that students are required to do some critical thinking, shows that the whole Holocaust story is a bunch of lies and half-truths.

The photo below is also shown in the article about critical thinking.

Cremation ovens at Buchenwald

Cremation ovens at Buchenwald

In the news article, the caption on the photo above is this:

“Bones of anti-Nazi German women still are in the crematoriums in the German concentration camp at Weimar (Buchenwald), Germany, taken by the 3rd U.S. Army. Prisoners of all nationalities were tortured and killed. 04/14/1945.”

“anti-Nazi German women”? Buchenwald was a camp for men. There were no women at Buchenwald, even in the last days of the war. Another obvious lie, told by Holocaust Believers.

Many otherwise well-informed people mistakenly believe that “gas ovens” were used in the Nazi concentration camps to murder the Jews. On the old Hannity and Colmes TV show on 12/13/06, Alan Colmes showed a photo of two cremation ovens at Buchenwald (similar to the photo above) with the remains of partially burned bodies visible, as he said: “A number of people at this conference and your organization have said things like ‘The gas chambers did not exist.’ I want to put up on the screen the furnaces that were used to kill Jews.”

In the last days of free speech in America, for Heaven’s sake, let the students learn all sides of the Holocaust story.

Jaw-dropping writing assignment in a California school!

Filed under: California, Holocaust — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 9:20 am

Last night, I was absolutely flabbergasted to hear, on Fox News, about an assignment in a California school, in which 8th graders were asked to write an 18 page essay about the Holocaust and “whether or not you believe this was an actual event in history, or merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain wealth.”

You can read all about this controversy in a news article here.

According to the news article, these California students were given “three sources to use to write their essays. One of the sources reportedly alleges the gassings in concentration camps were a “hoax” and there is no evidence Jews actually died in gas chambers.”

This quote is from the news article:

The [first] source, [given in  the assignment] traced to a webpage on biblebelievers.org.au, states: “With all this money at stake for Israel, it is easy to comprehend why this Holocaust hoax is so secretly guarded. In whatever way you can, please help shatter this profitable myth. It is time we stop sacrificing America’s welfare for the sake of Israel and spend our hard-earned dollars on Americans.”

The other two sources were from About.com and History.com, KTLA-TV reports.

In a follow-up news article about the essay assignment, the biblebelievers.org.au website article is criticized because it states that the Diary of Anne Frank is a fraud. This is a mistake in the website article, which I noticed.  I blogged about this controversy at http://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/02/19/the-dairy-of-anne-frank-is-it-authentic/

The purpose of this 8th grade assignment was to teach students “critical thinking.”  When I was in the 8th grade, back in the Dark Ages, there was no such thing as “critical thinking.”  I had to look up this term on the Internet to find out exactly what it means.   I found a definition which I am quoting below:

A well-cultivated critical thinker:

Raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely

Gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively

Comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards

Thinks openmindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing, as needs be, their assumptions, implications, and practical consequences

Communicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems

I have not had any training in “Critical Thinking,” but here is how I would answer the question on the assignment:

The term “Holocaust” is the name given to a number of events, involving the Jews, which happened in Europe during the period between 1933 and 1945. The details of these events are quite controversial and there are two schools of thought concerning these events: One school of thought is that the details have been  exaggerated and some claims are outright lies. The official version of the events, which are collectively called “the Holocaust,” is the Jewish version that is required by law, in 19 countries, to be believed under the threat of 5 years in prison.

No other event in the entire history of the world is required by law to be believed. This leads some people to doubt the events that people are required by law to believe in 19 different countries.

As for me, I’m from Missouri, the “Show Me” state. I don’t believe anything until I see the proof.  Show me the proof of the gas chambers.

President Obama has not “made good” on his vow to “speak truth” to Holocaust deniers

Filed under: Buchenwald, Holocaust — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 1:14 pm

The title of my blog post today is based on the very last paragraph in a news article published on the Israel Hayom website.

The following quote is the last paragraph in the article:

The [Obama] administration has been sensitive about moves that might disrupt ongoing negotiations aimed at stopping Iran’s nuclear program. That apparently means passing on a golden opportunity to make good on the president’s vow to “speak truth” to those who deny the Holocaust.

President Obama knows the “truth” about the Holocaust because he had a great-uncle who was one of the American soldiers who was brought on April 7, 1945 to Ohrdruf, a sub-camp of the Buchenwald concentration camp, to see the bodies found by the Americans on April 4, 1945, after the camp had been abandoned.

I previously blogged about Ohrdruf at http://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/07/23/mass-murder-at-ohrdruf/

A huge photo of bodies, that were burned at Ohrdruf, is the first thing that you see when you enter the exhibits at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Photo of burned bodies at Ohrdruf is at the entrance to the USHMM exhibits

Photo of burned bodies at Ohrdruf is shown at the USHMM

This quote is from the beginning of the article on the Israel Hayom  website:

The [US] State Department silence over Iran’s most recent Holocaust denial stands in stark contrast with Obama’s repeated pledge to strongly respond to the anti-Semitic revisionism.

The United States would “pledge to speak truth to those who deny the Holocaust,” Obama pledged in a January 2012 message commemorating International Holocaust Remembrance Day. He directly addressed Holocaust denials coming from Tehran in an April 2012 speech at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, condemning Iran for denying the Holocaust and threatening to destroy Israel.

The following quote, which is in the middle of the article, tells us what the fuss is all about:

The State Department has not criticized a statement denying the Holocaust made March 20 by Iran’s Ayatollah Ali Khamenei despite President Barack Obama’s promises to “speak truth” to Holocaust deniers.

“The Holocaust is an event whose reality is uncertain and, if it happened, it’s uncertain how it happened,” Khamenei said in a speech commemorating Nowruz, the Persian New Year, the International Herald Tribune reported. “In Europe no one dares to speak of the Holocaust.”

That same day, Khamenei also vowed to “raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground” if “the Zionist regime makes a wrong move” in a post on his official Facebook page.

Note that Khamenei did NOT say that “the Holocaust never happened.”  All he said was that the “reality” of the Holocaust is “uncertain” and that it is uncertain “how it happened.”

How could anyone say that the Holocaust is “uncertain”? The Holocaust was proved at the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal where the Soviet Union testified that 4 million people were killed at Auschwitz and that 1.5 million were killed at Majdanek?

A movie of the Dachau gas chamber, made by the American military, was shown at Nuremberg. Oops! Did I just write that? I meant to say that the movie was made by the Americans, not that the gas chamber was made by the Americans.

I previously blogged about the Dachau gas chamber movie at http://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/11/19/proof-of-the-nazi-gas-chambers-given-at-the-nuremberg-imt-on-nov-29-1945/

This quote is from the article about Obama’s lack of action on the statements made by the leader of Iran:

A reporter asked State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki at last Friday’s press briefing if she had any comments about the ayatollah’s remarks, which were described as “not very kind either to the United States or to Israel, to put it mildly.” She said she didn’t know about the specifics and would check into it. Told that the ayatollah “again voiced doubts about the existence and the scale of the Holocaust,” Psaki pledged to “take a closer look and we can get something around to all of you.”

No statement has been made by the State Department or the White House since then.

What are we to make of all this?  Does Obama have doubts about the Holocaust, or about the “scale of the Holocaust?”

I blogged about Obama’s trip to visit Buchenwald at http://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2011/10/02/bertrand-herz-another-buchenwald-survivor/

After seeing Buchenwald, did Obama begin to have doubts?

Russia will become the next country to make Holoaust denial illegal

Filed under: Holocaust, World War II — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 10:53 am

According to a news article, in The Jerusalem Post, Russian lawmakers have approved a new law that will make denying the Holocaust illegal. You can read the news article in full at

http://www.jpost.com/Jewish-World/Jewish-Features/Russian-lawmakers-approve-bill-making-Holocaust-denial-illegal-347848

This quote is from the news article in The Jerusalem Post:

Russian lawmakers approved a bill that would make Holocaust denial illegal.

The lower house of the Russian Parliament, or Duma, passed the measure Friday on its first reading, the Voice of Russia reported Monday, making it illegal to deny the verdict of the Nuremberg Tribunal and punishing the “rehabilitation of Nazism.”

Those found guilty of the crime could be fined up to $8,300 or imprisoned up to three years. Public officials or media personalities would be fined nearly double or face up to five years in prison.

Does anyone, besides me, see a problem with this new law?  The verdict at the Nuremberg IMT included the “proof” that 4 million people had been killed at Auschwitz, and 1.5 million people had been killed at Majdanek, according to the testimony of the Russians.  Now these numbers have been lowered to 1.1 million at Auschwitz and 78,000 at Majdanek.  Not only that, the verdict at the Nuremberg IMT included the “fact” that the Germans had killed prisoners at Katnyn Forest, according to the false testimony of the Russians.

I previously blogged about the Nuremberg IMT at http://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2013/08/27/the-nuremberg-show-trials-aka-the-nuremberg-international-military-tribunal/

The news article in The Jerusalem Post continues with this quote:

Those found guilty of the crime could be fined up to $8,300 or imprisoned up to three years. Public officials or media personalities would be fined nearly double or face up to five years in prison.

The bill also needs the approval of the Federation Council, or upper house. It was authored five years ago and resubmitted in February.

“Rehabilitation of Nazism is not only a shot fired at the past and mocking millions of victims,” the head of the Lower House Committee for Security, Irina Yarovaya, a main sponsor of the bill, said in parliament. “It is also a shot fired at the future, an instigation for new crimes against peace and security.”

North America — the last outpost for Holocaust denial

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 12:50 pm

This quote is from a news article, which you can read in full here:

The United States and Canada have a totally different approach to hate speech because their history is different from the aggressors’ of World War II, “so their attitude to legislation on the matter is totally different,” said Porat. While in Europe the trend is to act against racist comments, not just racist actions, North American law sanctifies freedom of speech. “Holocaust denial is not outlawed there,” said Porat. “There is a whole empire of denial.”

It’s true.  The last outpost for Holocaust denial is North America.  Most of the countries of Europe have Holocaust Denial laws now.  It is most unusual that the US and Canada still have free speech, regarding the Holocaust.  However, the free speech laws didn’t protect Holocaust deniers Germar Rudolf and Ernst Zundel, who were both renditioned to Germany for trial.  Both were convicted of Holocaust denial and served time in a German prison.

This quote, regarding Holocaust Denial, is from Wikipedia:

Holocaust denial is the act of denying the genocide of Jews in the Holocaust during World War II.[1][2] The key claims of Holocaust denial are that the German Nazi government had no Final Solution policy or intention of exterminating Jews, Nazi authorities did not use extermination camps and gas chambers to mass murder Jews, and the actual number of Jews killed was significantly (typically an order of magnitude) lower than the historically accepted figure of 5 to 6 million.[3][4][5]

Holocaust deniers generally do not accept the term denial as an appropriate description of their activities, and use the term revisionism instead.[6] Scholars use the term “denial” to differentiate Holocaust deniers from historical revisionists, who use established historical methodologies.[7] The methodologies of Holocaust deniers are criticized as based on a predetermined conclusion that ignores extensive historical evidence to the contrary.[8]

Source [8] is quoted below.

8.  Predetermined conclusion:

“‘Revisionism’ is obliged to deviate from the standard methodology of historical pursuit because it seeks to mold facts to fit a preconceived result, it denies events that have been objectively and empirically proved to have occurred, and because it works backward from the conclusion to the facts, thus necessitating the distortion and manipulation of those facts where they differ from the preordained conclusion (which they almost always do). In short, “revisionism” denies something that demonstrably happened, through methodological dishonesty.” McFee, Gordon. “Why ‘Revisionism’ Isn’t”, The Holocaust History Project, May 15, 1999. Retrieved December 22, 2006.

The Holocaust History Project is discussed at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Holocaust_History_Project

Their website has a list of the members of The Holocaust History Project, many of whom are now dead, or retired from writing about the Holocaust.

For the official history of the Holocaust, which you must believe, to stay out of prison in 17 countries [soon to be 19 countries in 2014] go to this page of the THHP website: http://www.holocaust-history.org/denial/revisionism-qa.shtml

A few years ago, the Holocaust History Project had a website which claimed that the Dachau gas chamber was a real gas chamber where prisoners were gassed.  I have been unable to find the original page with photos which proved that Dachau had a homicidal gas chamber.

This quote is an example of what you can read on The Holocaust History Project website:

The overall total of around 6 million is based on demographic studies and analysis of Nazi train records that record the numbers of Jews shipped to Auschwitz during its existence. An example of the methodology used is in Raul Hilberg’s Destruction of the European Jews.

I read somewhere that the train records were never found.  I read this, either in Edwin Black’s book, “IBM and the Holocaust,” and/or in a pamphlet that I obtained from the Auschwitz Museum.
