An important German-jewish philosopher and left-wing agitator who was enormously influential in the 1968 upheaval in Germany was Herbert Marcuse. His thoughts about freedom of speech may have played a key role in establishing the repression which persists in Germany. The following is from the Wikepedia article about Marcuse:
Marcuse's 1965 essay "Repressive Tolerance", in which he claimed capitalist democracies can have totalitarian aspects, has been criticized by conservatives.  Marcuse argues that genuine tolerance does not tolerate support for repression, since doing so ensures that marginalized voices will remain unheard. He characterizes tolerance of repressive speech as "inauthentic." Instead, he advocates a discriminatory form of tolerance that does not allow so-called "repressive" intolerance to be voiced.
That Marcuse and several other jewish members of the Frankfurt School were also with the OSS and CIA during and after WW2 are, I think, important facts for understanding how the holocaust hoax became firmly established in the immediate postwar era. Another character was Joseph B. Maier who supposedly was present when Rudolf Hoess signed his infamous "confession" to the murder of 2-1/2 million Jews in Auschwitz. Years later, Herbert Marcuse asked rhetorically as to why anyone would NOT have wanted to torture Rudolf Hoess.
For some of the info about Maier's role see:
Joseph B. Maier's role in Hoess's interrogation is further explained on page 30 of the book Surviving the Twentieth Century by Judith Marcus:

Well, if you torture a person, their subsequent "confession" becomes worthless in any real court of law--something the Bush-Cheney gang of criminals should think about regarding the torture of their prisoners in Guantanomo and any subsequent trials of those prisoners. Torture may force useful military information out of prisoners--but any subsequent trials of those prisoners become a farce. Any statements that prisoners make or made as a result of torture become worthless for any real historians also.
