Question: Do people who deny the Holocaust deny only the Jewish part!?
Or do they also deny that Hitler massacred homosexuals, Roma, Catholics, the disabled, and other groups!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
Sure they deny it for these other groups! Denying the H!. is how they destroy sympathy for Jewish people, for these anti-Semites!. And, given that anti-Semites tend to hate EVERYBODY you noted - homosexuals, Roma, Catholics - they'd want to destroy sympathy for them, too!.

Disabled!? H!. deniers hanker for them 'good old days' when prejudice was allowed, so no doubt they liked them 'good old days' when disabled people were locked away and never seen!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Interesting question!. I always thought it was tunnel vision that led Jewish sources to mention only Jews in the camps instead of including the others who were exploited and killed, especially since there were over five million Poles, gypsies, disabled, mentally ill, gays and mentally retarded identified, rounded up, worked to death or killed outright!.

Germans today aren't proud of this part of their history, but they don't deny it!. They are much more forthright and responsible than the pope and other holocaust deniers!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

They deny what is convenient!. I think most have the motivation of being anti-Semitic, therefore they deny that the Jews were killed!. Their motive is to justify their existing bias!. Since many of them deny the ovens even existing, a corollary would be that NO ONE was killed at the death camps!. I doubt if they've gone so far as to apply their denials to the others you mentioned, who were in fact minorities in the camps!. Most of those killed were Jews!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
