Höss, Gerstein, and Eichmann are three. Then there is Broad that makes
four. There are probably more but at this point of discussion you are
difficult to take seriously. Take their recollections and testimony
and put it with sondercommando testimony, blueprints, camp supply
orders, correspondence, and other materials and what have you got?
A pretty clear idea of the process and how it came about. 

How do we know what happened in the Battle of Shiloh? We use
correspondence, Official documents and reports for both sides, and
after battle photographs of the area to get the initial idea of what
occurred. We flesh that out with memoirs of the participants. Like the
gassing of human beings above we can also put together in a pretty
good picture of a battle fought well over 100 years ago. We do not
even need live witnesses anymore.

Because Mr. Raven says so. I'll bet you are tailing on the lighter

Lots more than you think, Mr. Raven. Historical events do not fall by
the loss of a single witness.

All corresponence that has to do with this issue will appear here, Mr.
Raven. The last time you bailed out even in email so from now on do it
here.

This seems to be the denier technique. Once someone appears to be
making a mistake then they become liars and everything they have said
before and after is also a lie. How should we really treat or analyze
errors on the part of witnesses? Really.

Good. Harrass each other but take somewhere else. The name of this
conference is alt.revisionism. It isn't alt.personal.revenge or
anything like that. If you have something to offer concerning the
Holocaust and its denial by so-called revisionists then present it.
Not that it matters to you, but I'll soon simply killfile your

Primary means that it is original to the time and free of pending
bias. Whether Hell's document is primary or not is debateable Mr.
Smith, but the most telling impression here of your evasions is that
you know nothing about it and did no research on it. You simply
dismissed the statement out of hand. Hand you done a little research
(there was a prior discussion in this group on this very same source)
you would have found out some interesting details about this Hitler
interview with the reporter Hell.

Yes, he does Ms. Ahlf. First you need to find out what evidence he
will except as evidence. Even Mr. Raven fails to answer that question.
so has Mr. Bradley Smith. I think this lack of integrity is extremely
improtant when you consider what they are about.

I note that Mr. Smith fails to provide us with such contradictions. I
think that it is obvious that he really doesn't know anything at all
about the subject at hand. Obtuseness seems to be his intent.

No, Mr. Smith. Before that the 1935 laws came about. He and his party
wanted to make them WANT to leave.

I guess this is because Mr. Smith says so. What physical evidence is

Really? What is a paper trail, Mr. Smith? Are the reports of speeches
heard by Ernst Hanfstaengl good enough for you? He was there. What of
the reports of what Eichmann heard Hitler say? What of the newspaper
coverage from 1919 through 1933 that report Hitler speeches. What of
the speeches of Himmler and Goebbels? What of these radio speeches of
these folks? Seems like you have a lot of stuff to dismiss.

What will you accept, Mr. Smith? We have the notes from his early
speeches. would those be good enough? After all, they are in his hand.
Is it your habit to demand something and then when it is presented to
dismiss it as _not good enough_? If so, I haven't the time to provide
anything for your closed mind.

Rather than attack Hilary personally, you could have simply asked for
the reference she has in mind. BTW, it seems that the recent speeches
of Mr. Irving suggest that he is the focus of some world-wide
conspiracy. I think that he exaggerates his importance to the world.

Oh, joy. Remember that the focus here is 1933-1945. We are primarily

You poor dear. :-( Life is so hard on these self-percieved
intellectuals. I think that if you handled sources in a non-biased way
and were able to present a coordinated argument you might do better. I
think that if you did that you would find yourself falling into the
valid history camp and not so much in the denier camp.  ;-)

Overall, how inaccurrate was he? How does he compare with other

others who were in a similiar position? Are there comparisons between
his memoirs and Höss? Are there comparisons with other individuals
such as Nazi testimonies? How important are his errors in the over all
picture? Was he trying to recall that which was destroyed from memory?
How good is Ehrlich with remembering images mixed with horror and
terror?

I think you are protesting too much. You made a big ridiculous deal
out of it. There was a massive thread about it. People even got out
their thesauruses(?) and presented you with the fact that mauve could
be various shades of purple, violet, blue, and gray mixed in various
forms.

This must be the reason why there were so many two post threads.
Ehrlich would make a point and then get questioned on it and then fail
to respond. Uh huh, sure, Ehrlich606.

I'm sorry. But using anti-Semitic remarks wouldn't cross _my_ mind as

Here we go with this silly game, and by the way, Ceacca refusing to
answer questions. If one takes murdered Jews _alone_ one has Kulmhof
(at 150,000), Sobibor (at 200,000), Belzec ( at 550,000), Treblinka
(at 750,000), and Auschwitz (at 1.3 million) at these camps.
Historians have struggled over coming up with numbers of Jewish people
murdered because, well, there were so darn many missing after the war.
Surviviors new their relatives borded these trains to the above camps
and never were seen again. Polish farmers saw loaded trains go in and
empty trains go out. Four million folks may have died at Auschwitz,
but only 1.3 million of those were _Jewish_.  There is no myth that
people were murdered there. Eichmann saw it. Höss testified to it and
admitted it. The list can be legion here with the Nazi witnesses, but
why waste time with you when it comes to details.  

I think you are the myth. You are the ghost here fears posting under
his own name. You are the myth that refuses to stand up be counted for
your beliefs. There is no Ceacca.

Oh? Specifically in ways does this report _agree_ with Leuchter. I'm

Then we can discuss why they came up with different conclusions and
how _exactly_ they did this.

Really? Defame is a term that means to damage or the reputation or
character by slander or libel.


>We do not believe his motives are sincere,

SRRS claims that Mr. McCarthy is not sincere. What does this mean?
This means that what Mr. McCarthy says is feigned or not genuine. This
suggests that Mr.McCarthy is not honest and is deceptive. It could
also mean that Mr. McCarthy is a hypocrite or has a pretense. This is
a personal attack that was unwarranted by the question asked SRRS.
This attacks the character of Mr. McCarthy.

This is more directed the group Nizkor and is thus also an example of
defamation under the description of the term offered above.

Of course. Students  making  these  claims  should have the ability,
like any other student of history,  to back them up. In fact college
students are close to enormous resources ( called libraries) that can
be used to back up their claims. SRRS implies as much in their name.

There isn't really another side. There isn't enough data to support
another side realistically. College students should be intelligent
enough to see this. The fact that justin49 doesn't answer any of the
spefics of the original post is very telling.

> and to stand up for intellectual and academic

No one is denying students academic freedom. In fact, I call on
students to back up their claims with substantiation in the same
manner I call on the "revisionists" to do so. The revisionists have
run away from these kind of demands.

But students have the time to build a _resource site_ and malign
people and groups they are unfamiliar with.

They failed to prove them and so far the only response has been from a

the convictions you have in your positions.

I'd like to know about the "Aryan" property they "sequestered." I
recall a German lady tell me that they would bury their silverware and
dishes in their gardens so the SS wouldn't steal it. She didn't use
the word "sequestered. "

It shouldn't be much of a struggle. If you had the substantiation and
history to back up your claims there would hardly be a struggle. The
fact that you do not is what makes it a struggle. The fact that you do
not also makes it a mental struggle which must be tiring.

As long as it is the truth. The exchange of ideas should be discussed
using verifiable facts and not the distortions of facts. Otherwise one

This is a classic. You are not people who hate other races but dearly
love their own [race]. I put the word in their to complete your point.
I guess this implies that those not of your race are less "loved" and
therefore there must be something you guys dislike. There must be
something you hate about other races. What is your _race_ btw, and
what makes you so special?

The ADL, SWC, USHM have a different history, purpose, and charter from
the Nizkor site. I'm not even sure if Nizkor has a charter now that I
think on it. 

Your sentence construction confuses me concerning how the Zundel site

I don't see one individual denying that Dresden, Hamburg, Hiroshima,
or Nagasaki were bombed. Do you? 

The bombing of Japan has nothing to do with the facts of the
Holocaust. Neither does the Bombing of Dresden or Hamburg. This is an
attempt by deniers, like yourself, to shift the argument.

What this unintelligent individual is trying to say is that only
revisionism and the discussion of the same is to be posted here. I
submit that it is. Revisionism is when intelligent persons suggest a
revision of documented history. Then other persons can deal with this
suggested revision by refuting or supporting it. This is what is being
done here to some degree.

What is happening though, is a distortion of the basic understanding
of the term as understood by historians and students of history alike.
This individual wants people to think that  the "revisionism" of the
Holocaust discussed here is true historical revisionism when it isn't.
So this individual feels that since these "revisionists" can't seem to
meet the criteria they have burdened themselves with then those who
disagree have no place here. IOW this individual seeks no discussion
of history but rather a discussion of a fantasy or a fiction that
there was no holocaust at all. Sounds like a coward's game.

War is a horrible thing. Since no one is denying that Germans were not
bombed, we haven't an issue there. Do I have concern for the German
civilians who were bombed or the English civilians who were bombed?
Sure. It would be a terrible way to live. There is no comparison with
the German civilians and the Jews. For the Jews  and other specified
groups the future  was inevitable. They were selected and by law
treated in a special fashion. But this is what you and your cohorts
are denying.

Also the date strikes me as interesting. Maybe you ought to pursue the

Finished off?! Oh, of course they weren't all murdered yet,

This individual never fails to be disturbed  by Dr. Keren’s quoting
the Herta Ehlert
statement from page 709 of the Belsen Trial.

M. Curtis:
It appears that Dr. Keren has transgressed and interfered with
Blackmore’s admiration of  Commandant Kramer of the Belsen camp.

Blackmore:

M. Curtis:
We will look and see just how well she was dealt with by doing what
this 
individual suggests.

Blackmore:

M. Curtis:
Of course, they were one big happy family, were they not?

Blackmore:

M. Curtis:
Yes, it appears that she was. However what the judge and jury must
decide is when
she was lying and why. Passing off cruelties to others hardly suggests
that the cruelties
did not happen, but rather the individual on the stand wasn’t
responsible or wasn’t as 
severe as the other SS who were far worse.

Blackmore:

M. Curtis:
We can only hope that Blackmore truly will elucidate the evidence
where this is coming
from.

M. Curtis:
And I did this and much more. The thread under question is called
"Kramer vs Kramer-
Keren vs Blackmore" and was a side thread that fell out of a much
longer thread called
"Bill Harmon’s Question" which was never really answered. At least
Yale’s question concerning the source for the water was never
answered. But I digress. Let’s delve into this individual’s prior 
9/23/96 adventure into trial distortion and learn more about what
makes deniers tick.

Well, the individual says that she is a liar and a petty thief and
that about sums it for Blackmore’s
argument.

Blackmore:
 >. . . The gist of my argument was that it appeared that

M. Curtis:
In what case? You, of course, mean this instance. One page 229 of
"The Belsen
Trial" she is being questioned by her defense council. Major Munro.
After all, it is
better to let the readers know who is doing the questioning so they
can have an idea
of the context of the questions and questioner. We will go into this
further on as we 
try to put the information back in context. As much as this Herta
Ehlert is a 
disagreeable personage, she should be allowed to remain in context.

Blackmore:
>  Kramer denied having uttered these words on the witness
>stand.  I believe him, based upon the evidence which I researched, proving
>that Kramer did everything he could to improve conditions within the camp.

M. Curtis:
These words were "let them die, why should you care?" It appears that
Blackmore still hasn’t grasped the concept of convergence of evidence.
To further prove that Kramer was insensitive about the conditions in
which the prisoners were placed: 

(page 187 - Dr. Klein is cross-examined by Colonel Backhouse) 

"What did Kramer say to you when you told him about the growing  need
for water at Belsen and for the need to remove the corpses? --He told
me, "You cannot give me any orders."
	The corpses were lying all around the camp."

(page 201 - Franz Hoessler is examined by Major Munro)

"What did you do to get  food? --I went back to Kramer and saw him in
his office and asked him if he could give me some food for my
prisoners, but he said he needed all his food for his own prisoners
becuase his camp was overcrowded, that there was typhus and many other
sick people.
I told him I was glad that my prisoners were not coming into his camp
because they were not sick and they had no lice."

(page 421 - Stanislawa Starostka cross-examined by Col. Backhouse)

"Do you mean that Kramer did not soil his hands with it himself, but
if he wanted somebody killed the driver did it for him? -- I would not
say that because when Kramer was tramsferred to Belsen he killed many
people on his own initiative, especially at the time of the evacuation
which took place in 18th January when he killed all the people who
were unable to march off with the others."

(Further examples available upon request)

[snipped that which has nothing to do with Herta Ehlert]

Blackmore:
>Now, as to Ehlert, let us briefly examine how credible she is:

M. Curtis:
Let us say up front that she is credible and incredible at various
times.  What was most
interesting to this reader was her transfers to other camp duties. As
much as she tried to mitigate her cruel
treatment of other prisoners she was selected by the SS for duty that
involved higher 
pay and in places where her kind of cruelty was most tolerated.

Blackmore:
>Herta Ehlert was referred to the SS for work duty in 1939,  She served at Ravensbrueck,
>Lublin, and Auschwitz before being transferred to Belsen in 1945.

M. Curtis:
On page 235 we find Herta being questioned by the prosecution and
topic was her stint at
Ravensbrück. 

"Were not the prisoners quite regularly beaten both by Kapos and by
some of the guard?
-- In Ravensbrück you could never beat a prisoner publically. For the
slightest offense you had to make a report and they were brought in
front of the Kommandant, who asked whether they admitted the
offense they were accused of, and if they were proved guilty they were
put into detention, and if the 
offense was grave then they were put on bread and water.
   Were you sent to Lublin as a punishment because you were
considerate and reasonable to the
prisoners? -- I was too good towards them and I was caught doing
several things which were not allowed;
for example, I passed letters out of the camp, smuggled parcels in,
sent messages to relatives.
   Was Lublin a lot worse than Ravensbrück? -- Yes, the prisoners were
treated terribly there, although
in my opinion the death rate was not very high."

In the end the Judge advocate had some final questions concerning her
transfers. This is on page 241 for those who have the normally found
edition of  "The Belsen Trial."

   "By the Judge Advocate—Ehlert, when you were called up in 1939 to
join the S.S., what rank did you hold then? -- Aufseherin.
   If you ever had been promoted in the S.S., what would have been the
next rank? --The title was always the same, Aufseherin, but you
received a bar or a circle or something like that on your sleeve.
   Did you always get the same pay while you were serving in the S.S.?
-- No, I got more.
   How much pay were you receiving when you were sent as punishment to
Lublin? -- I think it was about 170 or 180 Marks a month, with some
extra pay for being in a foreign country.
   Where did the punishment come in? How were you punished by being
sent to Lublin if you got more money? -- Because the camps in Poland
were not so civilized as the camps in the German Reich.
   Do you mean that the living conditions for the S.S. were better in
Ravensbrück than in Lublin? -- No. They were better in the East, in
Lublin.
   You performed the same sort of duties as  an Aufseherin, you got
the same pay and bonus, and the conditions were no worse for you. Why
did you say it was a punishment? -- It is a punishment because you do
not feel at ease in such a camp."

[snip]

Blackmore:
>Q:  Have you received a German translation of the statement you made on the 
>     11th June, 1945,  at Celle?

>A:  Yes, but it is not a correct version of what I originally said.

Oh, but there is more to this. To stop here is dishonest and typical
of  Blackmore’s tactics as I have pointed out before. 

>Where have we heard this before?    It seems as though the interrogators were,
>as I previously posted, simplying interested in accumulating all the sensationalistic
>statements as possible to use against the accused.  

Mostly we "hear" this from Mr. Blackmore while he attempts to deceive.
Let’s continue on page 228 where he left us hanging.

"In what respects do you say the translation is not correct? --In part
5, it says, ‘The victims were in such a weak state that they would be
very lucky to survive such beatings as I saw her give.’ Weakness did
not originate from the beatings, as they were weak already. . . . ."

>For instance, in the same 
>"deposition" referred to above, it was alleged that Ehlert witnessed a staff member
>"kicking" an inmate.  When questioned about this at the trial, Ehlert said:

>"I never said that he was kicking her."

No, she said:

"With regard to paragraph 9, it is true this woman escaped and came
back and it is true that Kramer beat her, but as I was not very near
and as it was getting dark I could not see whether he hit her with an
instrument or with is fist or what he did. I know that he did hit her.
Then about the kicking: I never said that he was kicking her."

[snip]

Blackmore:
>And so on and so forth.  When asked:

>"How did you find the conditions when you arrived at Belsen?", she replied:

>"The conditions were the worst I ever saw in a camp.  They became worse as time
>went on."

>Thus, her opinion is in agreement with Kramer, who had been virtually duped into 
>accepting the assignment there.  Also in agreement were Pohl and Hoess, who later

M. Curtis:
Duped!?! Kindly read on:

(page 731 - Statement of Josef Kramer)
	
"On 29th November, 1944, I went to Oranienburg, Berlin, to report to
Gruppenführer Glücks. . . . He said to me: ‘Kramer, you are going to
Belsen as Kommandant.’"


[snip]

Blackmore:
>Now, as to my incessant postings that allied bombing sorties helped to contribute to the
>horrifying conditions in the camp, we find confirmation in the following exchange:

>Q:  Did you try to do anything yourself to help?

M. Curtis:
Let us try to be complete: She said: 

"Yes, I went to the Kommandant several times. Once I had all the
Blockältesten paraded because I was told there was no fat in the food.
I went to the kitchen and talked with the man in charge and the
Aufseherin, and they told me they had not received fat from the
store."

Blackmore then picks it up: 
>A:  ...I went to Unterscharfuehrer Mueller, who was in charge of ...(the)...store, and he told me

Whoa! Was ist los with printing what is written on page 229? It says:
"who was in charge of that store." Maybe Blackmore can explain the
ellipses.

Blackmore continues to quote:
>that all the train wagons were SMASHED BY BOMBING and he could not do anything about
>it.  At that moment I happened to meet Kramer, told him about it and said that the death rate
>was increasing, and that the prisoners could not keep alive on this thin soup.  He made the
>Kommandos from the prisoners collect potatoes and mash them, and those mashed potatoes 
>were mixed with the soup...."

M.  Curtis:
There was no evidence in the actual source so this is Blackmore’s
effort to point out the obvious. But let us continue from where
Blackmore left off.

"He made the Kommandos from the prisoners collect potatoes and smash
them, and these mashed potatoes were mixed with the soup, and in that
way the prisoners had the feeling that they had received something in
their stomachs."

Blackmore:
[snip]

>If we may return briefly to her alleged "confessions and statements" again, we read the

>Q:  In your statement to Colonel Genn which was read over to you in German and which

>(Now, notice the method used by the interrogators.  He uses such terms as "I have heard"...
>etc.)

M.  Curtis:
No, this was her statement and _her_ words in paragraph 10 o page 710.

Blackmore:
>  And if she had heard, she would have to have heard form 2nd or 3rd hand sources. Now, for 
>Ehlert's reply:

M. Curtis:
Let’s let Herta wrestle with it rather then Blackmore.

Back to page 236 where I will pick up where Blackmore leaves off:
	
"Had you heard it or had you not? -- No, I did not hear it about Ilse
Forster. It must be that the interpreter did not understand."

Blackmore:
>A:  It must be that the interpreter did not understand.

>Indeed, perhaps it was his intention to deliberately not understand.

M.  Curtis:
But continue with the cross-examination, Blackmore!

	"Did you hear it about Frieda Walter? -- Yes.
Did you mention Ilse Forster in connection with the beatings? -- Yes.
I was asked again and again who was beating in the camp and I was
repeating again and again the names of those persons whom I knew or
whom I had seen beating people, but the Colonel asked me again and
again about Forster and he told me, ‘I have witnesses.  I know the
truth. You had better tell me the truth."

Blackmore:
>In a similar vein:

>Q:  Did you not say to Colonel Genn that you saw him (Kramer) kicking and shaking
>her, and later hit her with a stick on her head and face and all over her body quite
>unmercifully?"

>A:  No.

>Well, it seems that Colonel Genn had quite an imagination.
>Perhaps he "misinterpreted"?

M.  Curtis:
What Blackmore seems to not understand is the use of the deposition
given by Herta Ehlert by the prosecution on page 710 where her
deposition may be read we find paragraph 9. She testifies that she 

". . . saw him kicking and shaking her and later hit her with a stick
on her head and face and all over her body quite unmercifully."

It appears to me that the Prosecutor quoted her properly and the only
misinterpreting being provided us here is that of  Blackmore.

Blackmore:
>Only a couple more examples ought to suffice to formally conclude this debate:

>Q:  Was it not a favorite trick of the SS to make one lot of prisoners beat another?

>A:  No.  They were very often FIGHTING AMONGST EACH OTHER.

M.  Curtis:
When quoting from depositions and interrogatories, Blackmore should
not hunt and pick isolated lines that are out of context with the
subject under discussion. It has already been shown that Blackmore
_consistantly_ uses this unscholarly technique. Those who wish more
evidence of this are kindly requested to read this book for themselves
to form a more balanced opinion.

 [snip]

Blackmore:
>Finally, and this is the one I love the best:

M. Curtis
Blackmore must be an insenitive, bigoted, hateful individual to "love"
anything that is shown in this very sad book. How anybody can read the
book and not feel some sense of moral outrage at what is revealed
therein simply shows how low some members of the human race have sunk.


Blackmore:
>Q:  Do you remember saying to Colonel Genn:  "I say that Kramer was responsible for
>the conditions.  Among other reasons, (Which are conveniently NEVER given) because
>on ONE occasion, when I complained of the increasing death rate to Kramer, he replied,

>A:  Yes.

>Q:  And I put it to you that you took his advice.

>A:  What could one individual person like me do with so many thousands of prisoners?

M.  Curtis:
Blackmore is repeating again and again. this has been firmly covered
above.

Blackmore:
>The same could well be asked of Kramer................................

M.  Curtis:
Kramer was in charge of the party was he not?

Deniers have attempted to use the nit-picking technique of  reporting
"history." Examples of Blackmores mendacity have been illustrated
above. It is quite easy, as Jamie McCarthy has stated, to state a lie;
much more difficult, tedious, time-consuming to disprove the lie. But
that is what Nizkor is all about. As long as there are those who will
lie about the Holocaust , there will be many others willing to
disprove the lies.

Well, I would say, because they are the memories of one individual who
was there. Human memories are tricky things and not all individuals
spend time thinking about being exact when confronted with
documentation that shows that their memories exaggerated distances or
numberic values gathered during difficult situations. Many stories are
incorrect in details. There is some research that suggests that the
Mexican army at the Alamo was 5 times smaller than what was claimed by
eyewitnesses. This doesn't suggest at all that 130 some odd man did
not die in the Alamo.

No, his facts are not wrong. These people were not deported to be
murdered with poison gas.  The politics of the time and the
governments seeking retribution (Poland and Czechoslovakia with the
aid of the Soviets) dealt unfairly and reprehensively with the other
victorious powers when it came to claiming borders and land. They also
tended to want German groups OUT of their nations. Not all of this was
fair or reasoned. History is rarely logical. There have been a couple
of interesting books on this subject that puts the whole thing in its
political perspective. But this isn't what Blackmore wants.

You need not worry, Texans are dealing with Davy Crockett surrendering
and ultimately shot by firing squad. At least the historians
presenting this revisionist history have actual verified documentation
to substantiate their position. This is something you denier types do
not.

Poppycock! He was doctor working under unusual circumstances and in a
violent atmosphere. Was he properly fed and provided with the needed
exercise to keep a healthy mind? Did he suspect that he might go the
way of the sonnderkommandos? Not many "living" in these conditions
thought they would survive the death around them. Most folks do not
know what importance their words would be to those who would use them
to deny what they had personally experienced.

Not at all. They make the mistakes human.

>Without knowing more about the man

What do you know about George Templeton Strong whose memoirs are very
famous. Yet I see no one denying what he saw and did. Most historians
know that he might be incorrect about details that have since come to
the light of day. They understand that these errors do not make Mr.
Strong a liar.

>or at least the genisis of his book, it is

I think that the above is irrelevent.

I've seen these pictures and they look real to me. Piles of burned
bodies in wagons. Burned bodies lining the streets are photographed.
I'm not going to deny that it happened like you, blackmore, are
denying the Holocaust.

Wrong. It was mostly by the Polish goverment, the Czech government,
the Russian government. I see you have dropped _Nemesis at Potsdam_
for the more sensational Sack book. I'm for more interested in the
historical truth than in sensational over-blown stories. I guess it is
too much to ask what came first; the destruction of their countries by
the Germans or their brutality towards their German speaking citizens.
Most historians try to ask whether these folks supported the Nazis in
their overthorow of these countries rather than trying to equate it
with the Holocaust. Most historians realize that we are dealing with
different issues here. They realize that refugees kept coming despite
Western attempts to stem the flow. I guess it is clear that historical
truth is not your main goal here.

Your sense of hstory isn't all that good either, Blackmore. I think
the study of Dresden and the bombing needs to go a little deeper than
one single English officer.

This sounds like something a five year old would say. Is your tongue

No. Mark is telling you and others here that it involves the Nazi
Holocaust that you and your friends are bending over backwards to
deny. None of us are denying the other events that seem to concern you
in your efforts to trivialize and falsely associate with the 12
million victims of Nazi hatred.

Moderators have their own forums and groups to moderate. If they post
here or not is none of your business.
