Zu den eher unappetitlichen Skeptiker-Themen gehört die Leugnung des Holocaust.
What are the most convincing bits of evidence which prove, beyond a shadow of doubt, that the Holocaust occurred?“
Der Skeptiker Tim O’Neill gibt eine bestechend einfache Antwort:
No Nazi was ever a Holocaust denier.“
Dazu führt er unter anderem aus:
This one, simple fact shows that everything the modern deniers try to claim is a post hoc contrivance.
From 1945 onwards, thousands of Nazis were captured and hundreds tried for their part in the Holocaust and other crimes against humanity. They tried to pretend they were someone else, they tried to pretend they didn’t know what was happening, they tried to pretend they didn’t have as much to do with it as others, they tried to claim they were just following orders and they tried to justify it as „the kind of thing that happens in war“.
But what not one of them ever did was deny it happened.
Even men on trial for their lives, in the full knowledge they would be hanged if convicted, never stood up in the courtroom and shouted „This is all a lie! This is a fabrication! There were no gas chambers and no crematoria! I’m being framed!“
On the contrary, they gave great detail as to precisely how they had helped build and helped run the mechanics of mass murder, some of them even seeming proud of how they had achieved something so complex and on such a vast scale.“
