("YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW THE FACTS", posted by Dan Gannon on alt.illuminati) The Holocaust's existance is an established historical fact; the arguements brought up against it are weak and pitiful. However such a posting deserves retrobution: Point 1. of the posting states "The notion that eyewitness testimony, given under highly politicized and emotional circumstances is PRIMA FACIE true, was refuted by the Israeli Supreme Court when it acquitted John Demjanjuk of being "Ivan the Terrible." Eyewitness testimony was found to be unture in the case of one man, John Demjanjuk. Forty years of aging and forgetfullness makes it hard to identitify ONE man; however Holocaust suvivor's testimony as a whole concerning their experiences was NOT invilidated. Too many survivors have told corboratting tales (Primo Levi, Ellie Wiesel for instance) under different circumstances at different times for their testimony to be inviladated. Their testimony of gassing chambers and torture is further supported further by the physical sites of Auschwitz, Dachau, etc. Point 2 states that NOT debating the holocaust is anti-intellectual. Do we debate the existance of World War II? Does anyone doubt that the Hundred Years War occured in France? Or that the Roman Emprie existed? It is useless to debate an established fact. Gannon is very selective in what he chooses to doubt and debate..if he wants to debate historical accuracy let him choose an unproven historical incident. Point 3 is about the Holocaust Memorial Museum's display. He says that the photos displayed offer no evidence that they were really Jews. Well, think about this. It is an established fact that Nazi Germany was anti-semite (read Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler is you doubt THIS). It is an established fact that Jews were rounded up from their homes and ghettos and transported to selected places in Europe, including Auschwitz. It is an established fact that the Jewish population of Europe declined signficantly between the 1930's and 1945. Then, at Auschwitz we see photos burning corpses--coincidence? The posting also states that not one body was found to have died of gas. review your holocaust history--the dead bodies of gassed Jews were burned in the cremation ovens of concentration camps. The last paragraph asks for donations. There is no chance in hell that I would give one penny to that cause.

Did it ever occur to Brad Smith or you, "Nazi-Boy" Gannon, that it is not the intention of the Holocaust museum to prove anything? See, out here in the real, non-deluded world, the holocaust is indisputable fact. The vast majority accept that it is fact. To start with the assumption that the museum needs to prove something or exists in order to prove something is fallacious. Any conclusion Smith, "Nazi-Boy" Gannon, or anyone else draws from that assumption it not logically based in any way. Wait, here comes a great example of a logical step..... > > The question, then, is not, "Did the Holocaust happen?" The question >is: If there were no gas chambers, WHAT WAS THE HOLOCAUST? Great logical step fellows. Let's review: Premise: An entity whose intention is not to prove anything doesn't contain proof to our satisfaction Conclusion: The proof doesn't exist Let's present an example that even the "great revisionist scholar" Smith can understand. Suppose you don't believe the My Lai massacre occurred. Then, by Smith's reasoning, it can be concluded that the My Lai massacre did not occur since the Vietnam war memorial does not specifically prove that it did. C'mon "scholars". Even you can see that your arguments here are more idiotic than usual. People only display their delusional nature by assuming that an entity for the purpose of memorializing widely accepted history would in any way take into account the fact that a few fringe lunatics, for reasons of ignorance, bigotry or to impress the people they parrot would deny history. To build the "Holocaust Memorial Museum to prove the Shoah occurred to the satisfaction of Brad "I speak" Smith and Dan "and my lips move" Gannon" would be a waste of time, right, fellows?

It was near the town of Gotha. I have never felt able to describe my emotional reactions when I first came face to face with indisputable evidence of Nazi brutality and ruthless disregard of every shred of decency. Up to that time I had known about it only generally or through secondary sources. I am certain, however that I have never at any other time experienced an equal sense of shock. I visited every nook and cranny of the camp because I felt it my duty to be in a position from then on to testify at first hand about these things in case there ever grew up at home the belief or assumption that `the stories of Nazi brutality were just propaganda.' Some members of the visiting party were unable to through the ordeal. I not only did so but as soon as I returned to Patton's headquarters that evening I sent communications to both Washington and London, urging the two governments to send instantly to Germany a random group of newspaper editors and representative groups from the national legislatures. I felt that the evidence should be immediately placed before the American and British publics in a fashion that would leave no room for cynical doubt." ------------------------------------------------------------------- -- Seth J.

Let's assume that the article is right, although it is not. There were no gas chambers. What does that prove? Does it prove the extermination of the Jews was not attempted by the Nazis? Of course not. You haven't forgotten the Einsatzgruppen, have you? They killed about 2 million Jews all by themselves. You haven't forgotten the Wannsee conference, the testimony of Ohlendorf at Nuremberg, and so on? But the fact of the matter is that gas chambers were used. I don't care what is in the Holocaust museum. If every artifact there is phoney, that still doesn't matter a hill of beans. The proof of the use of gas chambers comes from the *Germans*, from the people who made them, supplied them, operated them and sold them. It comes from the victims, a precious few who survived. It comes from documents produced by the Germans during the war. And it comes from their admissions after the war. How do you explain this? You can't, so you indulge in your well-worn tactic of confusing the issue. It won't work, Dan. Everyone is on to you. Even Hermann abandoned you. You continue to demonstrate that you are a little Nazi puppet, and a rather stupid one at that. -- Gordon McFee ai292 I'll write no line before its time!

Ignoring the obvious, of course, which is this: the museum has no obligation to "prove" the gassing of Holocaust victims; this fact - repeat, for the reality-challenged (That's you, Nazi-Boy) - _fact_ is beyond dispute. It offers encyclopaedias about Mr. Smith's approach to the Holocaust, and to the promulgation of the _big _ lie. It also offers typical proof of Mr. Smith's utter disregard for the targets of his continuing attack upon the Jews. He is, patently, catering to the simple-minded and brain-deficient specimens, much like our Mr. Gannon. Anyone blessed with a mind that works isn't going to be suckered that easily - I offer Mr. Gannon to establish my thesis. The Louve does not have to 'prove' that Michelangelo existed. NASA does not have to 'prove' that the moon exists. Elvis is dead. Some things, Nazi-Boy, are beyond dispute. One such is the gassing of victims during the Holocaust. Get used to it. > The question, then, is not, "Did the Holocaust happen?" The question >is: If there were no gas chambers, WHAT WAS THE HOLOCAUST? Sorry, Mr. Smith, but you have failed to demonstrate gassing did not occur; the question is moot. The Holocaust, by the way, was the deliberate and calculated extermination of roughly eleven to twelve _million_ victims, many of whom were Jews, and many of whom met their ends in homicidal gas chambers. Say and do what you will, twist and obfuscate to serve your end, but don't presume to offer such lame attempts at "historical logic" (for wont of a better phrase) to your readers here on the net. > This Museum promotes the charge that the Germans murdered the Jews of >Europe in homicidal gassing chambers.

As any competent historian will tell you, Mr. Smith, the documentation for the Holocaust is so extensive that it will probably require many more decades to sort it out. The prosecution team at Nuremberg was literally swamped with captured documents - including Frank's entire journal, for instance, and didn't begin to make a dent it what was available. So great is the mass of this material that scholars may study it for centuries, let alone decades. Real research, unlike the variety you and your associates are familiar with, involves tedious attention to reams of details.. obscure documentation in even more obscure archives, new material from the Eastern block which was never available before, etc. It shouldn't surprise anyone that it is difficult to determine all the facts overnight, or even in fifty or sixty short years. > When I challenge such gas-chamber vaporings I understand I'm going to >be slandered as an antisemite by the True Believers in the Holocaust Lobby. >These quasi-religious Holocaust zealots claim that because of the purity of >their own feelings about the Jewish experience during World War Two, mine >must be soiled when I express doubt in what they preach as "truth."

It is interesting that you somehow think you've scored a point here - does it really matter who the victims were? Perhaps they were Jewish, perhaps they were not. They were Holocaust. > But were the prisoners killed or did they die of typhus or some other >disease during the last terrible weeks of the war? Autopsies made by Allied >medical personnel found that inmates died of disease. Not one was found to >have been "gassed." ALL SUCH RELEVANT INFORMATION IS PURPOSELY OMITTED FROM >THIS EXHIBIT. WE DON'T EVEN KNOW THAT THE DEAD PICTURED IN THE PHOTO ARE >JEWS! Such ranting! Gannon and his upper-case dementia surfaces once again... The documentation, and the eyewitness testimony, is quite clear - those who were gassed were either immediately cremated in the ovens, or burned in massive pyres. Those who had been buried in mass graves early on were later dug up by Sonderkommandos and burned. All these things are known, all documented beyond dispute. You are kidding no-one here. > Unable to judge the significance of the photograph, and not wanting to >believe the Museum would mislead you, you are moved to accept the false and >manipulative suggestion that it somehow represents the "genocide" of the >European Jews. You see, Mr. Smith, that's just another case where you are wrong. I would feel the misery, and the sadness, and the horror of the Holocaust. I am already more than familiar with the reality of the Nazi genocide. Followups to alt.revisionism, where this article has been shot down more than once in the past few months, and where Gannon will no doubt ignore all such rebuttals - he is, after all, a coward, with no stomach or ability to deal with reality.
