This is a good point.
No, it's not a good point.
Mulenkamp is going on assumptions. We're asking for proof.
And how does mulenkamp, or you, or anyone, know what Mr. Gerdes has asked, or what has occurred to him?
I for one have asked myself that question. But since all the answers I've come up with are pure conjecture, what's the point of asking anyone but the primary sources?
Also, that scan photo was once on the nafcash site. Now it's not.
My guess is, something "occurred" to them.
Probably the same thing that occurred to Lamprecht.
And that is there's something fishy about that scan photo.
Does anyone know if Mr. Gerdes has ever contacted Mr. Krege?
I would find it hard to believe that he never has.
And there is something very fishy about Irving.
Let's not forget that Irving is not a "denier."
He told Mr. Berg that he believes it's entirely possible that 2.4 million jews were killed at Belzec, Sobibor and Treblinka combined.
(How can mulenkamp call Irving a "denier" when Irving believes that twice as many jews died in those 3 camps as mulenkamp himself?)
Why take something for granted if you don't have to
Now that's a good point.
Until that is done, and until someone publishes something like the book which Rudolf had intended for publication, there's no purpose served by guessing what was in it or not.
We're asking questions and we're going to primary sources for answers.
BTW, I sent my third email to Irving this morning.
I pulled a page from jnovitz's playbook and asked Irving two yes or no questions.
There is simply no reason in the world why Irving shouldn't or can't answer them.
Unless he's afraid of something.
It never occurs to mulenkamp and other hoaxers to ask why Irving refuses to answer such simple questions.
If he got if from Krege, then why doesn't he just come out and say that he got it from Krege?
And even if he did get it from Krege, this issue is still far from over.
There are still other questions that have to be answered about that scan photo.
