 Examination of Holocaust denial - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Holocaust denial is widely viewed as unreasonable because it fails to adhere to rules for the treatment of evidence, rules that are recognized as basic to rational inquiry.
Holocaust deniers discount these testimonies claiming that these witnesses were tortured, or that Rudolf Hoess allegedly signed a "blood stained confession" written in a language he did not understand (English) or that the Nuremberg Trial did not follow proper judicial procedures.
The result is that Holocaust deniers have needed to construct an elaborate conspiracy theory involving a massive "Jewish plan" to plant forged documents across the continent of Europe, aided by the torture and forced confession of every captured Nazi officer, soldier, and worker who testified at the war crimes tribunal.

Holocaust revisionism as it is referred to by its supporters or Holocaust denial as referred by its opposes, is the belief that the Holocaust did not occur as it is described by mainstream historiography.

By denying even that a dispute over this articles exists, Modemac and RK have reached a new level, level way beyond Holocaust deniers.
Ed, it's been generally agreed among Biocrawlerns that the articles here about Holocaust denial and Holocaust denial examined have been factually and historically accurate and generally NPOV; some NPOV work and additions still need to be made to the main Holocaust denial article, but the folks here are working on it.
If you are going to have an article called "Holocaust Denial examined", first you need to lay out what the arguments are (they're laid out pretty well in the article Holocaust Denial) and then you should tackle them one by one.

 Conference | The Stockholm International Conference on the Holocaust
So-called Holocaust revisionism, including outright denial, was propagated from very early on in Sweden by Swedish antisemitic activists as well as small groups within the Swedish elite driven by nostalgia for the Third Reich, coupled with a strong commitment to the anti-Communism of the Cold War.
Thus, when Holocaust denial in the 1980’s and early 1990’s became more visible, very much through the activities of the Stockholm community radio station Radio Islam and its "chief editor" Ahmed Rami, one might have expected a potential susceptibility to the blandishments of the "revisionist" message.
There is no single solution to the problem of Holocaust denial, but it is probably safe to say that one of the best is to fight it by increasing knowledge about the Holocaust.

 [No title]
It is absurd to claim (as the deniers do), that Germany in the 1940's could not handle "technical difficulties" in using HCN for execution - "difficulties" that were easily solved in 1920.
This claim stems from the fact that Hydrocyanic compounds were found on the ventilation grills of the gas chambers in Krema II and III (the chemical analysis was carried out by Dr. Jan Robel of the Cracow Forensic Institute in December 1945, and was part of the evidence in the trial of Auschwitz commander Ho"ss).
The claims often made by Holocaust deniers about emigration of Jews after the war are preposterous.

 Body Disposal at Auschwitz: The End of Holocaust-Denial
Holocaust deniers argue that it was not possible to dispose of the 1.1 million killed at the camp.
As was noted earlier, deniers attribute the building of the four new crematoria and the 46 additional ovens to the typhus epidemic that swept the camp in the summer of 1942.
Both deniers and their critics agree that an oven could not incinerate a body in 15 minutes time, which is what would be required for the 46 ovens to burn 4416 bodies in 24 hours.

During the Holocaust, for example, despite a total lack of evidence to substantiate these charges, those who were adamantly opposed to the immigration of refugees in general and Jews in particular, convinced the American public that Jewish refugees posed a significant threat as a German Fifth Column, i.e.
Denial of the Holocaust is as unbelievable as the Holocaust itself and, though no one is being killed as a result of the deniers’ lies, it constitutes a form of abuse, especially for the survivors.

 Butz: Revisionists Only Deny One Aspect Of Holocaust Story
A minor question that sometimes arises is the relative merits of the terms "Holocaust denial" and "Holocaust revisionism" to describe the views on the Jewish "extermination" claim that I and others have expressed.
The problem with the term "Holocaust denial" is that it conveys, to most people, a false idea of what we say.
In general, I prefer the term "Holocaust revisionism" because it does not imply a complete rejection of all that is popularly understood by "Holocaust", and invites the observer to consider carefully what is being accepted and what is being rejected.

 No Planes and No Gas Chambers: Holocaust Deniars push hoaxes that sabotage 9/11 truth movement
holocaust denial is not a neutral topic of historical inquiry, it's a lure cast by Nazi apologists for vulnerably open minds, which exploits their fresh sense of distrust of history by suggesting that this, too, must be a lie.
Holocaust denial is a severe crime in Germany and is rigorously prosecuted by the authorities.
In the case of holocaust deniers, it's quite clear what their agenda is. They can attempt to masquarade it as "legitimate research" all they want, but the way they present their "facts" always destroys any legitemacy behind that claim.

 David Irving: Propagandists' Poster Boy
This short essay may include his first explicit public denial of the Holocaust: he calls Nazi executions of millions of Jews a “well-financed and brilliantly successful postwar publicity campaign,” modeled on “the original ingenious plan of the British Psychological Warfare Executive” in 1942 to disseminate a similar “propaganda story” against Germany.
Because many Western democracies have passed laws against Holocaust denial, racial incitement and defaming the memory of the dead, Irving has frequently come into conflict with the governments of countries he has sought to enter.
He remains a celebrity among Holocaust deniers and anti-Semites, however, who view him as a martyr to free speech and political dissent.

 Issues: Perspectives (November 2000): Combating Holocaust Denial on a Small College Campus
Like other Holocaust deniers, CODOH seeks to "set the record straight" in college newspapers by questioning established historical facts about the deliberate murder of European Jews, homosexuals, gypsies, the mentally ill and physically deformed, and all the others the Nazis classified as subhuman.
To the deniers, the gas chambers did not exist, The Diary of Anne Frank is a fraud, and the numbers of dead just don't add up.

 Michael Smerconish: On Dealing With Denial - Politics on The Huffington Post
The fringes represented by Duke argue that laws in Europe which prohibit Holocaust denial inhibit an analysis that could otherwise reveal the Holocaust to be historical exaggeration which exists to justify the legitimacy of Israel.
Having seen the haunting, ghastly evidence which I have just examined, my view is that it's far easier to defeat the deniers with fact and logic rather than risk fostering skepticism which comes from making those views illegal to espouse.
But he acknowledged that laws banning Holocaust denial are probably an insufficient blanket to put out that fire.
