I know this has probably been done to death, but WHAT THE ACTUAL HELL! What is with the holocaust denying catholic bishop that has been in the news?
This does make me wonder, how can people be so ignorant as to deny the holocaust. I actually find it quite insulting considering my whole family are polish, and I have been to Auschwitz and seen the gas chambers for myself.
How can people deny this atrocity in history? Is there something seriously wrong with them, or do they just not want to realise the evil that can be present in human nature?
There was probably a video on youtube.
Everyone's entitled to their own opinion I guess.
Who cares he is obviously a nutjob.
I don't know of many who deny it completely. Many are merely revisionists who use selective evidence to try and make a case that six million weren't killed. But, they're entitled to their views imo. The arrest of David Irving was despicable.
There is so much evidence. He is silly. The end.
Why does noone understand? It's a zionist conspiracy...
They killed themselves to make hitler look bad :P
He wasn't denying it, per se... He claimed that six million weren't killed... If he can provide evidence to support his opinion, then he is entitled to it...
Maybe they prefer to believe that 6,000,000 Jews went to a sunny, happy holiday camp somewhere and never came back.
Maybe they are optimistic or maybe, just maybe they are idiots who can't see 2 feet in front of their face let alone the historical truth....
People who deny the holocaust might as well deny that they breathe in oxygen.
Well that's how it is.
The pope was a youth nazi anyway so it's not surprising. I don't go along with the pope **** system but John Paul was better, he tried to make ammends with those of different faiths this ********** seems to sever ties.
An assassins bullet should resolve it all...
How is this for a theory - If the holocaust really did happen then those who were oppressed would never have barged into Palestine like that massacred thousands. The oppressed have become the oppressors so it may become hard to believe that their ancestor actually were mudrdered, torchered etc because then they would never do something like that. And for the record, If the gaza massacres took place, then the holocaust might not have.
I am not supporting holocaust denial.
However, most holocaust deniers are in fact revisionist historians, as has been said earlier. Most do not deny all existence of the holocaust, instead they revise and highlight their ideas that the holocaust figures are exaggerated and that too much of a 'bad light' has been shone upon what happened. They believe that they can prove it, and so it is not unfair that they hold these beliefs.
Just to clarify: The Holocaust did happen, unfortunately.
That 6 Million died is completely unfounded. All are free to undertake independant research and arrive at a conclusion of their own - i doubt anyone in this thread has done so. Of course Jews were killed, of course Jews were not Hitlers favourite people - but 6 Million? Haha.
And to OP - how dare you claim ignorance of someone else - you are still in School, you stupid little ******* ******. I am confident that you know nothing of events during that period which allows you to comment on this matter. This is what happens when youth rely on BBC, tabloid and News show propganda for education. Jesus christ.
