The Nizkor Project: Remembering the Holocaust (Shoah)

What has happened to the historians who have questioned the "Holocaust" material?

63. What has happened to the historians who have questioned the "Holocaust" material?

The IHR says:

They have been subject to smear campaigns, loss of academic positions, loss of pensions, destruction of their property and physical violence.

Nizkor replies:

Violence is a deplorable response to speech, of course, and it must be condemned.

But still, what historians? There is not a single Ph.D. historian in the revisionist community. Faurisson was a professor of literature, Zündel was a photo-retoucher by trade, Butz is a professor of electrical engineering, Stäglich is a judge, O'Keefe is a Harvard dropout, and Cole is a high-school dropout. Raven is a former writer for stand-up comics and automotive magazines.

Irving is a journalist and historical writer, and Weber has a Master's degree in history. They are as close as any "revisionist" comes to being a historian.

Ironically, one of the few other "revisionists" with an academic degree in history is Leuchter, who is presented as an expert engineer! (He has a Bachelor's degree.)
