Virtually? Not one academic historian in the US disputes the holohoax, I'd be happy to find out I'm wrong.
In Europe? Zero.
Elsewhere in the world?
My evidence is anecdotal, from private conversations. And they were reporting from conversations with their colleagues as well. Obviously names and details will not be disclosed, since I don't have permission to do that. One German historian had a phD and a South African was doing his phD. The German's remark was "Many doubt the orthodox Holocaust, but would never say so in public". The South African's remark was "Our historians here don't take the Holocaust serious, but with a grain of salt". Some don't see the gravity of this, that e.g. the Holocaust serves as a justification for present day wars among other things.

Butz wrote 'The Hoax of the Twentieth Century' in 1976 !!!!! We are making damn little progress.
Well that was a drop in the bucket. So the effect was limited. I recall a case mentioned here, where another American publicly doubted the Holocaust.
