Can anyone confirm this and if so, can they provide references to these corrections made by Rudolf?
I would suggest the "Rudolf report" in which he specifically addresses the deficiencies of the earlier "Leuchter report".

Leuchter made some mistakes but I'd say the core of his case was sound. Besides the Rudolf report there is also a revised Leuchter report where Rudolf points out where he made mistakes and corrects them. It's called the Leuchter reports: critical edition. Great books but not light read. You should be able to download them in PDF format free of charge from:
Hope this helps,

How Deniers Distort Quotes
A classic denial strategy is to take a quote from a historian and pretend that the historian is saying what the denier wants him to say. It's a subtle form of lying that we define as quote-mining. Here's an example.
Germar Rudolf wants us to believe that historians have doubts about gas chambers, so he quote-mines Arno J. Mayer as follows:
The tendency in recent historiography seems to be more and more to abandon the gas chambers, for which the sources are "at once rare and unreliable", as Prof. Arno J. Mayer put it.
Was Mayer really abandoning the gas chambers, as Rudolf claimed? Rudolf clearly knew that he wasn't, because Mayer's full passage stated this:
Sources for the study of the gas chambers are at once rare and unreliable.. .there is no denying the many contradictions, and ambiguities in the existing sources. These cannot be ignored, although it must be emphasized strongly that such defects are altogether insufficient to put in question the use of gas chambers in the mass murder of Jews at Auschwitz.
This same quote-mine was employed by the late, but not lamented, Canadian denier, Doug Collins in 1993-1994, as part of a series of articles that led to a complaint being made to the British Columbia Press Council. On the issue of Collins' quote-mining of Mayer, the Council adjudicated:
The Press Council upholds the complaint on these points and finds that they breach the Code of Practice, Article One, in that they mislead the reader and misrepresent the original authors.
Quote-mining by deniers was thus exposed over a decade ago by a public authority, but deniers continue to practice the vice.

Therefore those fools at holocaustcontroversies.blogspot.com need to give their heads a shake.
Jonathan Harrison is either an idiot who cannot read, a liar, or a combination of both.
Another point is that some of the more serious - if I can really use such adjective - holocaust "historians", have made many admissions against interest. Such have been mentioned by revisionists to demonstrate that even from the orthodox perspective, though they won't admit it, there is much room for doubt. Such admissions oftentimes harshly contradict what the very authors are stating, as is the case of Prof.Mayer.
