I hope you don’t mind if I ask a question (or two) to start with.
I have read that when the Auschwitz records were released (1990?), they showed that about 70,000 people had died at Auschwitz from all causes. Did the media report on these records? I’ve read that the New York Times reported on them on 3 March 1991. Is this the case?
I’ve also read that it was Elizabeth Dole who revealed this figure. Was she one of a select few who were allowed to look at the records at all?
Where are these records kept now?
And were they acknowledged by any mainstream holocaust historians? If so, what did they say?
To my knowledge, the records still aren't accessible to the general public. Most of the names can be found on the internet, though:

Here is a statistical breakdown by date: http://thunderbay.indymedia.org/uploads ... by-day.gif
The Auschwitz Museum in Auschwitz, Poland has a search engine that allows you to look up names of deceased: http://www.auschwitz.org.pl/new/index.p ... ryb=szukaj
It has been claimed by Holocaust defenders that the most common cause of death in the death books is "heart failure", from which they conclude that those aren't the real causes of death, but they were made up by the SS. I haven't been able to verify this claim.
I wonder if you or anyone else could direct me to any mainstream webpages that acknowledge the 70,000 figure for the recorded deaths. I'm sorry if this seems like a trivial question to any old-timers in here, but I am interested in explaining the revisionist position to people, and, sadly, I think there are many people who would not even bother looking if I started off by linking to sites like codoh in the first sentence.
