Much other rubbish was given at and >about Belsen, but you know that already, don't you? I went one better when Orest Slepokura posted the sad tale of Moshe Peer; I called Karen Seidman of the Gazette who actually wrote the piece. There is no doubt that Peer claimed in a speech to a Jewish gathering in Montreal to have been saved six times from the non-existent Belsen gas chamber. Seidman reported to me that several people who had heard the speech called after the article was published to object that Peer could not be telling the truth. Whether Peer is a liar or just a very crazy old man, I leave to the speculations of others. I do not regard a single example of a crazy old man or any collection of liars or crazy old men to be an adequate basis for denying the historicity of the Holocaust. In any event which occurred at thousands of locations, involved millions of people, and whcih was spread across several years, cases such as Peer's are bound to happen. Anyone who thinks that collecting such instances while ignoring other kinds of evidence, has no conception of how history is done. -- John Morris at University of Alberta ------------------------------------------------------------------------ The Nizkor Project: An Electronic Holocaust Resource File archives - ftp://ftp.almanac.bc.ca Web page - http://nizkor.almanac.bc.ca Newsgroups: alt.revisionism Path: news.voyager.net!nntp.netrex.net!gatech!news.mindspring.com!cssun.mathcs.emory.edu!swrinde!newsfeed.internetmci.com!in2.uu.net!world!dkeren From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Daniel Keren) Subject: Re: truer than true testimony Message-ID: Organization: The World, Public Access Internet, Brookline, MA References: <email@example.com> <firstname.lastname@example.org> <email@example.com> Date: Wed, 19 Jun 1996 08:42:43 GMT Lines: 18 firstname.lastname@example.org (John Morris) writes: # Whether Peer is a liar or just a very crazy old man, I leave # to the speculations of others. For fairness' sake, one has to remember that he was 11-years-old when liberated from the camp, which probably affected the accuracy of his testimony. -Danny Keren. -- In Message-ID: <email@example.com>, Matt Giwer suggested that documents about a "gas chamber" and "gassing cellar" in the Birkenau crematoriums didn't count, as they were really due to "a morbid sense of humor" of the SS men who authored the documents.
