Here's the outline. Be as critical as you want. Also I've put the order as what I think is the most persuasive to least persuasive. I'd be interested in your input on that too, or if there's other topics I've not mentioned. --Thanks!
1. Important eyewitness testimonies are not believable.
•Time Magazine article on Mengele
2. Method used to release Zyklon B gas at Auschwitz is not believable.
•throwing pellets from hole in roof
•World at War episode 20
3. Nuremberg Trials: Evidence from the "Stalin Purges" people.
•Accusations that no one believes today
•Movie: Judgment at Nuremberg (1961)
4. Treblinka death camp details are not believable.
•Digging up a 900,000 person grave for outdoor cremation
•Yankel Wernik, Kurt Gurstein testimonies
5. Why are the "Stalin Purges" and the Holocaust handled so differently? Is it about psychological manipulation rather than real history?
•Hollywood movie portrayals, newspapers, t.v.
6. Death by diesel exhaust isn't believable. Neither would the Nazis have used a gasoline motor to produce carbon monoxide (CO) gas. There are better and easier ways to produce CO. A gasoline engine only gives off CO as a by-product.
•Berg articles at IHR
7. Auschwitz evidence has other explanations: A look at testimony, piles of hair, piles of glasses, the gas chamber etc.
•Soviet bogus evidence
•Bodies from starvation at typhus
•Pile of hair possibly for L-cysteine protein
•Piles of glasses might number in thousands, not millions
•Fake gas chamber
•Plaque with wrong information.
8. What they say about the Palestinians puts to question their integrity about the holocaust. A look at where we get our holocaust info.
•Simon Wiesenthal website
9. Residue (or lack of) found on the walls at Auschwitz.
•Wall Street Journal editorial
10. Why wasn't a comprehensive list of the victims ever produced in the first 50 years after it happened?
•Wendy Campbell article at
http://www.bahethcenter.org/english/opi ... mpbell.htm
11. Drama of survivor stories is more like a Hollywood script and less like reality.
•From revforum thread
12. The sheer size (6 million deaths) without a paper trail, isn't believable.
Two things which you missed that I feel are important are:
1. Evidence that goes against the popular view of Auschwitz (and other camps) as a place of death and misery. (The swimming pool, theater, etc) and the orders from Himmler to lower death rate. All of the things that show that extermination wasn't the intention and wouldn't have been accepted.
2. Perhaps the most important issue of all would be an explanation of how and why so many historians believe the myths. I think that this is the biggest obstacle for most people, as the idea that all these respected historians could be wrong is too much for most people to take.
Also, if possible, include scans or copies of the official sources you are quoting. Like when you say that in 1938 there were 15 million jews and in 1948 it was still 15 million, be sure to show the actual pages from the World Almanac that give these numbers. Maybe that's not a good example because the 1948 World Almanac is probably hard to get a hand on, but my point is that since revisionism is a very difficult subject to introduce people to, you want to put undeniable facts right in front of their faces rather than just quoting some old book that nobody is going to bother buying just to verify your statement.
I think "Die verbotene Wahrheit" (http://cwporter.com/dvw.pdf) is a good introduction, but it doesn't seem to be available in English.
- Choice given to inmates of Auschwitz to stay & wait for the communists or retreat with the SS, thousands went with the SS; those left behind were not executed to prevent them from 'talking', they were all ages, many in perfect health
- Russian photos of healthy inmates of all ages at Auschwitz upon 'liberation'
- Jewish births at Auschwitz and other 'extermination camps'
- medical facilities at Auschwitz and other sites for Jews of all ages; but we're told they were gassed if they couldn't work
- so many so called 'survivors'
- no huge mass graves as alleged
- tons of inmates released from Auschwitz
- The fact that many countries now arrest & imprison anyone who scrutinizes the story as it is alleged, only lies need that behaviour ... afterall, what are they afraid of?
Germar Rudolf's homepage has become my favourite revisionist site because of its layout. You have the story of his persecution as well as his biography and qualifications, but most importantly you have Dissecting The Holocaust available in its component pieces. I think we can do better, though. We must cater to the lowest common denominator with our own narrative of events presented in an attractive way with the minimum amount of clicks needed to locate answers to questions that any visitor might have. We need a glossy and professional website with a uniform style. There must be some first-class web designers available to us.
I put great importance in how the extermination myths have almost completely died (at least in scholarly circles; the public are still largely ignorant on this issue) where the western camps are concerned. I envision a map of central/eastern Europe with a bold iron curtain running across the middle. Each camp is marked and named and is clickable for more information. The camps are colour-coded to mark which camps were at one time alleged to be extermination camps, which camps are still said to be extermination camps and which camps, if any, were never supposed to have been places of extermination.
Clicking on each camp brings you to a thorough examination of what the camp was claimed to be at one time and what myths still remain in circulation today. There would be a breakdown of the eyewitness stories related to that camp, listed in two(?) columns: one for claims that are no longer given any attention and one for claims that support what is still said about that particular camp. Other statistics and important information would also be available in a simple table form with more in-depth essays and such things listed for those visitors who want them.
Importantly, each eyewitness claim for each camp would be clickable and would take you to a database of all witness claims where they can be examined. They would be listed based on where the claims stand today. Perhaps colour-coded. It should be stressed that just because a claim isn't overly imaginative and doesn't overreach the current holocaust legend doesn't make it a valid claim. The whole site should be inter-connected so that where one witness/claim/etc. ties in somewhere else the connection can be seen.
A thorough database of orthodox holocaust literature could be given with the witnesses cited in each book clickable through to the database, so it can be seen what kind of liars are used by these books that everybody fawns over. We can also show how these works are the basis for the holocaust being so widely believed even within academia. I'm sure there are psychologists out there who could write persuasive arguments for why and how a hoax can be so widely believed, giving visitors who are skeptical that such a giant hoax could be kept going pause for thought.
Another important issue would be the stories of people being told that they are to be gassed only to be showered and deloused. These would fit nicely with the other numerous stories of people being seen undressing for the gas chambers. It can be shown how the myths were seen from both the rumour-makers and the frightened new arrivals. This is important to our narrative and would also illustrate how not all witnesses are liars, they are just mistaken. Many people saw what they may or may not have thought were people on their way to a gas chamber at the time, and 60 years worth of increasing media hype have only strengthened those misconceptions.
Which is another important factor. We must be gracious and sympathetic throughout. Many people did die and our tone must not be mocking or littered with invectives.
And naturally all of the other evidence - the Rudolf report, the air photos, etc. would be featured. Everything we need is out there, it is just the techniques for getting it across to believers which are in need of work, and badly.

I like that vision! What really got me was the idea for a breakdown of what was once believed and what is believed now. That is powerful. They click on Dachau, and have what was once believed and what is believed now. Yet, there on "Dachau" are the eyewitness affidavits to the gassings! I like the database element tying to the uniformity of where the links on the screen would be to each place. Like whichever camp you click on, there is uniformity to where the links to, say, witnesses are.
I like your idea for the iron curtain map and the camps which are clickable, and I also like your idea of being gracious and sympathetic. Most people believe that if they didn't believe in the holocaust story, they would then be in favor of a holocaust. Which is really non sequitur ridiculous.
I think it would be good, but I'm not sure what would be better: a great website or a great video. Would people who completely believe in the holocaust want to extensively navigate a website? Maybe no. But would people who have a slight questioning of the holocaust want to extensively navigate a website? Maybe yes.
For some reason, regarding the emphasis on the website on how things change, it made me think of the "Operation Reinhard Death Camps" named after Reinhard Heydrich. Faurisson had this to say. My emphasis in bold. I actually laughed when I read this because I realized how ridiculous the name "Operation Reinhard" was:
Christie asked Faurisson if there was an operation called 'Reinhard'. "There was an 'Operation Reinhard'," replied Faurisson, "which is most of the time spelled R-E-I-N-H-A-R-D. But this is a complicated problem. Since 1985, an exterminationist historian...Uwe Dietrich Adam...in a footnote of a communication he gave at the colloquia of the Sorbonne in 1982, said that maybe it shouldn't be Reinhard spelled like that, but at the end "dt" and you would think that it's nit-picking, no, it's important because usually we are told Operation Reinhard is a criminal operation, it's an operation to exterminate the people in the name of Reinhard Heydrich....And Uwe Dietrich Adam said probably not. First of all, it would be strange to call an operation by the first name of a man, any man, as an 'Operation Adolf' or 'Operation Joseph' for Joseph Goebbels. No, it seems it is the name of the minister of finances and that it is essentially an operation of recuperation of goods of people expelled, of course, from Poland, for instance, but I think that we have no right to put like in this book called National Socialist Mass Murder by Poison Gas...a chapter called Operation Reinhard with a 'd', meaning...extermination.
A 45 minute long documetary such as the recent BBC effort (per episode) actually fits in far less information than you could absorb by reading during the same amount of time, but it has the visual impact which words don't have. Most revisionist arguments are based on written word (unless you can visit the camps and film there) and I'm not sure how engaging the film would be or how much you could get across within the time constraints. You could get the most charismatic person available to present it but ultimately he would just be reading to the camera for the most part.
So I think a graphic website would be the best of both worlds. I'm not talking about going overboard with shockwave movies embedded everywhere, but something ultra-glossy which really engages the visitor.
Hmmm, shockwave. Perhaps a shockwave movie would be a good idea.
In my debates with rabid believers on the internet I found this to be one of the most undeniable revisionist facts. They avoided it like a vampire avoids daylight. Soon after my posts were attacked with vandalistic material (without any intervention by the moderator) then I was banned without explanation.
Rudolf includes a photo of this door in his book. The photo instantly exposes the claim that this room was one of Birkenau's infamously productive gas chambers. Any person could easily punch through the door itself or the glass panels. The door is thin like a toolshed door and has an open keyhole. This door allegedly belonged to a gas chamber claimed to have killed thousands. All part of the Birkenau total...
Of course pointing this out is now considered participating in White Supremicism (never an extradictable offense before) and subject to harsh legal action...
And regarding the Nazi 'eyewitnesses' such as Oskar Groening. It would be a good tactic to point out how after any high-profile crime the police are often swamped with people confessing. The police will often hold back details of the crime to trick these confessors to rule them out as real perpetrators. It's hardly likely that the most high-profile crime in history wouldn't have it's share of these such confessors. Examples of crimes where this happened could be used with choice quotes from police officers talking about this phenomena.
In fact, I just found some text worthy of it's own thread.
- Presentation. If we are to collate an encyclopaedic collection of revisonist arguments and place them online, we must think about how it looks. As Oskar Schindler said (lol!), '"it's not the work, it's the presentation".
- Sources. we have to be rock solid on our use of sources and references. Links where available, full details at all times. I would like something that we could use to batter Nizkor down to size with. In fact, a great start would be to take all of the key questions posed by the folks at Nizkor and take them apart. From what I have seen, we have the collective knowledge and resources to do this. And reading this thread, we have the energy and the will to do it.
- No dodging. We deal with every single document that is thrown our way. OK, so there aren;t that many, but still...
- Emphasis on being scholarly. No unnecessary sarcasm (though yes at times one naturally cannot help it, especially when analysing the likes of Wiernik, Wiesenthal or Vrba) and no carping. No hacking at the carcass, merely a policy of clinical incision. The Holohoaxers like to use the 'butcher' technique when dealing with revisionists - it is our duty to not respond in kind but to be clinical and to the point at all times. we want people to see that we are here to teach and instruct; such an approach, if done properly, will do much to offset the idea that has been fixed in the collective popular mind that revisonists are a bunch of politically-motivated cranks. I have been at this game for almost two decades now, so I should know.
- Clear demarcation zones. We should have two main areas of study.
i. The technical stuff, where the real heavyweights can get together and take on the Nizkor folks. A place where we can discuss the chemical properties of carbon monoxide, blue bodies, and the properties of Zyklon-B. This sort of stuff should not find it's way into information for potential revisionists and newbies, as it would only serve to confuse them.
ii. Revisionism for newbies. What revisionism is all about, a collection of key questions and thirdly an anthology of popular canards which have since been consigned for one reason or another to the historical trashcan. (I think Richard Perle mentioned this first). We need to provide a full, detailed documentary history of these canards - where they came from, who said them, which scholars supported them, and what happened to them. The stories of the steam chambers, electrocution vats, human soap, Dachau gas chambers, usw. usw. The aim should be to prove conclusively that the Holocau$t 'gas chamber' story, and the evidence for it, is qualitatively no different from these long-since rejected tales.
As an offshoot of this, we can have a section that follows the Holocau$t story from 1945, like a timeline. Done in a nice, clear format, newbies can at a glace see how key aspects of the the story have changed and who has said what, all by looking at one single chart. We could cover ten of the major and 'well-known' camps - Auschwitz, Majdanek, Treblinka, Sobibor, Belzec, Dachau, Mauthausen, Bergen-Belsen, Buchenwald, Ravensbrueck, Theresienstadt.
I have, by this qualitative method, been able to get the message across to some. My scholarly approach and emphasis on taking each counter-argument head-on has also garnered the interest of those who might otherwise accuse me of peddling Nazi propaganda. My aim has always been to work ourselves, as revisionists, away from this so that there's no easy angle for the peddlars of the lie to pursue.
If anyone has any questions, I'd be glad to expand on any of the above points.
