Did Irving really believe that no-one was gassed at Auschwitz?  Between
his book and the references it cites, one can only wonder...

   "...the Jews set out eastward under the direction of one of the
   cruelest SS leaders, Brigadier Odilo Globonik, the Trieste-born
   former Gauleiter of Vienna.  Upon arrival at Auschwitz and Treblinka,
   four in every ten were pronounced fit for work; the rest were
   exterminated.

   ....The ghastly secrets of Auschwitz and Treblinka were well kept.
   Goebbels wrote a frank summary of them in his diary in March 27,
   1942.." (Irving, 391-392)

   [Dr. Josef Goebbels was Gauleiter of Berlin and Reich propoganda
   minister. In the war's end he murdered his six little children and
   commited suicide with his wife.  Here is the quote from the diaries
   Irving refers to (Lochner, "The Goebbels Diaries")]:

   "Beginning with Lublin, the Jews in the General Government [Poland]
   are now being evacuated eastward.  The procedure is a pretty barbaric
   one and not to be described here more definitely.  Not much will
   remain of the Jews.  On the whole it can be said that about 60 per
   cent of them will have to be liquidated whereas only about 40 per
   cent can be used for forced labor".
