Because You Cannot Deny the Past by crazylaura64 Because You Cannot Deny the Past by crazylaura64
The Holocaust was a horrible event, and one of THE darkest chapters in human history. As with many tragedies, different people have different reactions to the Holocaust. This includes outright denial that the event ever happened.

Even now, I still can't believe that some people try to claim that the Holocaust never happened. Have you ever seen the pictures or the real-life footage? Have you ever heard anecdotes from or met in person a Holocaust survivor? You cannot try to deny something that has definitely happened in the past, especially when there's clear evidence - and hoo boy, the evidence for the Holocaust happening is pretty damn clear. Sadly, holocaust deniers are all around the world. Personally, I don't know anyone who does deny the Holocaust (thank God), but I would be horrified if I knew someone who did.

Bottom line: Holocaust denial is retarded, because you cannot deny the definite past.

In my middle school, about 3-4 years ago, Holocaust survivors came and talked about their experiences. I wasn't there, but I'm sure there were a lot of people who cried listening, I know I would have been one. The Holocaust really happened, don't deny it, you've seen the footage. Heck, have you ever heard of Anne Frank?

You're totally right! "Happiness without past -happiness without future.". People should know and talk more about these things, and then probably the past's horrible things won't happen again...

IT WAS MADE UPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT'S THE PAST! MOVE ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Well guess what? It Is real so deal with it and that goes to anyone who tries to deny reality.

I went through the comments and found these links. I've read them all:
www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/?p=24…
zioncrimefactory.com/the-six-m…
www.goodnewsaboutgod.com/studi…

Also, I recently came across this article:
cienciologia.wordpress.com/cat…

I do agree that the goodnewsaboutgod.com article look like it's written by a crackpot conspiracy theorist, but some of the other articles do seem convincing. Recently, I've been curious about this whole Holocaust denial thing and have been researching the topic, and I have to admit, many of the deniers do look like they are rational and not antisemitic or racist; they are just not convinced that the evidence presented is real. Now, after reading their arguments, I feel that the Holocaust does seems fishy, and some of it may be faked. Don't get me wrong, I'm not suggesting that the entire Holocaust event is fake, just that some aspects of it, such as the actual death toll, may have been exaggerated. Also, it seems that the other genocide that was carried out on innocent Germans by the allies have been unrepresented in education and media. After reading that cienciologia.wordpress.com article, I'm starting to feel that the Nazis have been vilified. (Quote: In almost any war one side can be dishonestly demonized even by a truthful enumeration of its crimes, if the crimes of its adversaries are suppressed. —Irmin Vinson).

You're a history buff right? May I ask if any of the articles I linked are reliable? Please reply, thanks.

I can understand why people may be skeptical of the overall death toll (people always mention the 6 million figure, but it only seems to account for the Jews - the death toll may be as high as 10 million, if we include groups such as Jews, homosexuals and Slavs), but to disregard the entire existence of the Holocaust is horrifying, considering the photo and video evidence, and the anecdotes from survivors. Most mainstream historians will not openly criticise or be skeptical of the Holocaust's existence, nor would they be completely swayed by information from people on the internet, so I would take those sources with a grain of salt.

I agree that the Holocaust is real, but what I wonder is if Hitler and the Nazis are really the villains of World War II after all (as many people seem to believe). Did you read the articles in the cienciologia.wordpress.com link? If that article is to be believed, then just as much innocent Germans were massacred by the allies AFTER Nazi Germany has officially surrendered as the number of innocent people the Nazis massacred during the war. Also, (if what I read is to be believed) in the years leading up to the war, millions of Germans in Ukraine were killed by the Russians and Jews, which is partly responsible for Hitler's hatred of Jews.

You seem to know much more about history than me, so I'll like to hear your opinion on that. Are the atrocities against innocent Germans I mentioned above true? Or are they just lies pumped out by antisemitics?

There's no doubt that the Allies were hardly the pure white "good guys" of World War II. While pretty much all nationalities on both sides were massacred at some point, it's true that innocent Germans were killed, even the ones that showed no Nazi sympathies. I even came across a story one time of a British soldier who had to shoot a Japenese(?) kid in the Pacific theatre, so not even my nation is completely clean of atrocities. But in all honesty, if you compared the Allies to the Axis, the Allies would still be at best, "grey" - the Axis were largely "black" in terms of goals set out by their high commands.

And it's pretty disrespectful to the Jewish prisoners. What did they do to deserve it? :'(
