Re: The Biggest Surprise When You Investigated The Holocaust?

When I was about 15 (mid seventies) we covered the Holocaust in school, it was nothing like these days where the Holocaust has grown to include elementary, middle school and high school programming, but more of a subject touched for a moment during freshman history class. I was struck, not so much b...

Re: If the Holocaust were a hoax, where did all the millions

When Islam swept through the Middle East and Africa what happened to the Christians and Jews? Could it be that the majority of folks aren't concerned with defending any particular god or faith? Maybe some of the "Jews" of Europe made a rational decision that being "Jewish" wasn't...

Re: Holocaust Demographics

I just read a piece by Werner Weinberg "why I did not leave Germany in time"... He describes the events from Hitler's rise to Crystal Nacht.. He clearly describes the mad scramble to leave... How everyone who could leave did leave and the terror the Jews felt. My questions is this, surely ...

Re: Holocaust Demographics

Nickt I guess you are saying that 5million are "missing" and therefore killed. My look at this is rudimentary but let's start with the initial size of the worldwide group. I have assumed that at the start of WW2 there were between 10 and 15 million Jews in the whole world ... In many place...

Re: Holocaust education in the USA

By fourth grade they are reading Diary of Anne Frank and various obvious "fiction" knock offs of Anne Frank. "Night" arrives in eighth grade. The teachers are carefully indoctrinated and just as terrified as congress members clapping until their fingers bleed and yelling till the...

Re: My experiences with "Holocaust" teaching in schools

Merged from [Holocaust education in school] Webmaster I have four children, three are in public school. It is amazing how much of their school time revolves around the Holocaust. It seems to be carefully woven into various subject areas... the success of the strategy is undeniable, the average scho...

Re: What made you first question the holocaust?

When I was in high school, back in the seventies, we were taught, in social studies, that the Germans had killed six million Jews and six million others by gassing them in the "death camps". In our small town there were no Jews and in fact I was never told what the star of David represente...

Re: You've been labeled

I wonder if, within the stories, the icons, the shadows cast on the wall, there might be a key. One thing is clear, pointing out inconsistencies doesn't work because most people simply don't trust themselves enough to question authority... they are afraid of being humiliated.... The other day I was ...

Re: You've been labeled

I think that the labeling of revisionism as "anti-semetic" or "skin head" or what ever nasty conotation which can be pasted on anybody with the gumption to ask any questions has been undeniably successful. Most folks have no clue about the Holocaust, they just know instinctively ...

Re: If the Holocaust were a hoax, where did all the millions

The odd thing about the claims and counterclaims is that everybody concerned seems to want to know as much as possible about this history. I think that the "believers" have their motives for "believing" it might be as simple as honoring their fathers and mothers.... they were rai...

Re: If the Holocaust were a hoax, where did all the millions

I've never understood why there was so much name changing among jews in the post war period? Could it be that a great number of Jews who changed their name also changed their religion and that their children grew up with out a clue? I'm certain that the pressure to change beliefs was very strong. Ev...

Re: a college student's request for help

A paper, such as this student attempted, could be an ironic masterpiece but I think that "Elise" understands her role and how dangerous it is to wander out of line at the university. Time and again, the standard line seems to be, "ignore the arguments of the blasphemers as you careful...

Re: Supreme Court

Supreme Court

I think that we are watching an interesting moment. If the "funeral" protesters lose their case and are shut down I would think that it won't be more than a few years or so before all revisionism is shut down as well. There will be well funded civil cases by those who find themselves "...

I had no idea that Montel Williams had done such a show, I am amazed at how much more fair he was than Donahue.
