Re: Burden of Proof

Rather than squabble over who has to prove what in what is a legal concept, IMO both sides should have to evidence what they say. For example, those who say no holes at Krema II should evidence an undisturbed, complete roof during the period when the gassings were supposed to have taken place. I do ...

Re: The Stalag system

I can give you a reference to Niall Fergusons work re POW death rates 'Ferguson, Niall (2004). "Prisoner Taking and Prisoner Killing in the Age of Total War: Towards a Political Economy of Military Defeat". War in History 11 (2): 148–92.'. You are right about the Soviets being part of the ...

Re: The Stalag system

Russian POWs held by Germans 57.5% German POWs held by Russians 35.8% American POWs held by Japanese 33.0% German POWs held by Eastern Europeans 32.9% British POWs held by Japanese 24.8% British POWs held by Ger...

Re: Piles of Bodies in Photographs?

Whilst they say a picture is worth a thousand words, the caption below the picture can also determine the impression of the subject. Here for example there are images of Jews walking within the camps and they are captioned that they are walking to the gas chambers http://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2...

Re: The Stalag system

Yes that helps thanks. Comparing and contrasting film footage of the 'concentration' camps with the POW camps finds that the Allies were handed a propaganda coup on a plate. There is a marked difference in the condition of liberated inmates of the two types of camp, with a whole host of 'concentrati...

Re: The Stalag system

I seems to me a contrast and compare excercise between the Stalag POW camps and the 'concentration/death camps' would be a worthwhile excercise in determining how the civilians such as Jews, Gypsies and other prisoners were really treated. The common image of Auschwitz/Birkenau is of a death camp an...

Re: Does the "Holocaust" story provoke anti-German racism?

I had similar youthful experiences to borjastick re. comic books, television and cinema whilst growing up in Britain during the 1960s. When I first arrived in West Germany during the mid 80s I was expecting to find a nation of militaristic psychopaths. Instead I came across some of the most decent ...

Re: Is there only one version of the Holocaust?

...... The question I now have is, "am I missing something?" That is just how I feel about this issue. I also thought all camps had a gas chamber and the first time I went to Germany and suggested going to Sachsenhausen, the nearest camp to where I was staying in Berlin to see one. But I ...

Re: What made you first question the holocaust?

Reading a debate where the question was asked "name one Jew gassed in a chamber" and it became clear that question could not be answered. I was frankly amazed and very angry that such a simple question could not be answered from orthodox history. So I read more and found that much about th...
