NNTP-Posting-Host: vixa.voyager.net From the pro-"revisionist" book _The Holocaust on Trial_, concerning the second trial of Ernst Zuendel for spreading false news about the Holocaust, pp. 272-3: Pearson [attorney for the prosecution] paraphrased the gas van document as having said that "97,000 people have been successfully gassed," and Christie [attorney for the defense] objected to the paraphrase, since the document never mentioned "people." Judge Thomas overruled the objection, and Pearson again paraphrased it as "97,000 people." Notice that the question is left open as to whether "97,000 people" is an accurate paraphrase. Here is what the document says: Since December 1941, for example, 97,000 have been processed using three vans without any faults developing in the vehicles. Just in case there is any question, all ambiguity is removed a few paragraphs later: The vans are normally loaded with 9-10 people per square meter. Zuendel's lawyer tried to obfuscate this trivial point, and the pro-Zuendel writer of _The Holocaust on Trial_ failed to clarify it, leaving the question open. This is typical of Holocaust-denial.
