Question: Why do some still deny the Holocaust!?
I've never understood how anyone could look at the evidence (the testimonials, pictures, films and actual sites of the killings) and still deny such an enormous event!. While I somewhat understand those that deny the moon landing (well not really, but I get the suspicion), the Holocaust happened on Earth and millions of Jews, Homosexuals, scientists, mentally handicapped and gypsies disappeared!. How can anyone deny this event!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Holocaust Denial is a generic term to refer to anyone who disagrees with any aspect of the official story!. You can be a holocaust denier and admit that jews were rounded up and sent to camps!. Most notable holocaust deniers would be Winston Churchill who neglected to mention the gas chambers in his massive memoirs on WW2!. General Patton, commander of the US forces in Europe who with access to military intelligence during and after the war considered it Russian propaganda (he was assassinated)!. International Red Cross are also holocaust deniers, they had regular visits to the camps have the official lists and records and recorded 250,000 total deaths (perhaps that's why Isreali soldiers keep shooting their ambulances today)!. And the Auschwitz museum Curator who states that the gas chambers were (re)constructed by Russian forces after the war!.

I personally think they are all liars of course!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

So many things changed in the world after the Holocaust, including the creation of the nation of Israel!. There are people in the world that either still hate Jewish people or want the land to be back in the hands of an Arab nation so much that they want to deny the Holocaust happened, taking away the reason the world accepted the creation of Israel!. Then there are people that actually respect Hitler and want to make him out to be a hero not the evil dictator that he was so again, they deny the Holocaust since it is the main cause of Hitler's vilification, if not the only cause!. It is wrong, but it is the reality of bigotry!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I think it is because some people just want to think the best about fellow humans!. It is tough to admit that anyone is capable of doing the horrible things that the Nazis did, especially in the 20th century!. They would prefer to think it was something less horrible!. Some deniers claim that it was natural desase that wiped the people out and not intentional gas chambers!.

However, I am with you - there is much more evidence that points to an intentional horrific act!. Some would counter this by saying that history is always written by the victors and that you always want to make the enemy seem to be inhuman so that you and your allies can more easily live with the horrors that are committed during war!. However, maybe I am naive but I just don't think that we would go to that extent to defame our enemies!. We ourselves (USA) own up to Japanese internment and alot of other horrible things we did during the war!. If we do not learn from the past we are doomed to repeat it - and sadly I think we already have with Somalia, Croatia, Angola and Burkina Faso!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

people who deny the holocaust don't really deny it, they just deny the 6 million death toll of jews and think that the numbers are over exaggerated!. Most of the neo-nazis gangs "deny" the holocaust, meaning that they just don't believe that 6 million jews died!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Unfortunately, it now "in" to re-write history!. This is but one example!. People are actually publishing misinformation (false history!.)!. This started as a military process to confuse the enemy!. Today, it is used in many facets of life!. This is done to justify someones screwed up view of the world!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Generally those that deny it hate Jews and just don't want people to have any sympathy for them!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
