It took me about three hours of reading to be sufficiently suspicious. I then read loads more, expecting to find the golden nugget of truth proving it all happened. I didn't find it...
Yeah I was the same. You know what got me to look into all this was after I watched "Hitler the rise of evil" it talked about the Holocaust at the end. Then I remembered I heard White Nationalists on a Oprah video say it never happened and boom I started looking into it and I was blown away with the amount of evidence against it. What really sold me was when I found out that the picture of the Body Burning pit at Birkenau was doctored (which gave me chills) and all the newspaper articles talking about six million Jews before the war even started/ended.
So yeah after just a couple hours i was totally convinced that it never happened.
Interesting. Thanks for sharing your anecdotes because I actually assumed it would take longer than that for most people. In my case, I grew up in a largely Jewish part of New York, while not being Jewish myself. I was indoctrinated with holocaust propaganda from day one. Several years ago, I remembered how President Ahmadinejad of Iran denied the holocaust and I laughed at him and other "deniers", thinking, "lol, haven't these nutjobs seen any of the hundreds of photos of the concentration camps??" But, I was curious enough to start digging and the first ice-breaker was finding out that revisionists do believe that Jews were put in concentration camps - they just don't believe there was an extermination program. So, that much more reasonable claim was enough to make me suspicious, but I still spent several more years seeing if every possible pro-extermination angle I could think of could be countered by revisionists. Only then was I more certain.
If you guys can get your friends and relatives to watch an hour and a half video on holocaust revisionism, I do envy you. Sometimes even five minute videos are too much to handle for my millennial peers.
