January 27th was International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Separate from Yom Ha'Shoah, the Holocaust Remembrance Day on the Jewish calendar, It was designated by the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 60/7 on November 1st,2005 during the 42nd plenary session.
On January 24th, 2005 during a special session, the United Nations General Assembly had previously marked the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps and the end of the Holocaust which resulted in the annihilation of 6 million European Jews and millions of others by the Nazi German regime.
January 27 is the date, in 1945, when the largest Nazi death camp in Auschwitz-Birkenau was liberated by Soviet troops.
The following is an open letter I wrote to all Holocaust deniers.
Dear Mr. Holocaust Denier:
If the Holocaust was indeed a hoax, who, specifically, was responsible for it? I will qualify my question by adding that just saying "the Jews" is not an adequate answer. I want to know - which Jews? Just saying "Zionists" is not adequate. I want to know - which Zionists? I want names - I want dates. I want the who, what, when, where, and why! But, above all, I want evidence to show that these people actually perpetrated this "hoax”. Are such questions all that unreasonable? I don’t think so.
After all, Mr. Holocaust Denier - it's you who are arguing for a conspiracy that would have to be on a scale so massive and so secretive, that nothing like it had ever been seen before or has ever been seen since. How could the logistics of how such a massive "hoax" could possibly be pulled off - much less kept secret for over 60 years - human nature being what it is? A massive conspiracy to INVENT a historical event and then catalogue it in such detail is unprecedented in human history, don’t you think?
I'm sure that other people reading this are very curious about the details. Are you suggesting that perhaps all these people got together: Jewish reporters; the New York Times; and the lawyers of Jewish organizations and fabricated the Holocaust, then forced the Allied nations - Britain, France, the United States, the USSR, and the rest of Europe - to falsify evidence, plant bodies, and fabricate documents? Are you serious? Do you even realize the massive undertaking it would have been?
And then I assume that this Jewish reporter, the New York Times, and the lawyers of “several Jewish organizations” created a shadowy unit of enforcers to KEEP the governments of Britain, France, the United States, the USSR, and the rest of Europe in compliance with this fabrication, as well as penetrating academia to force them to go along with it as well? Are you sure this is the best you can do? I'm just curious where this diabloical scheme was hatched, and who carried it out.
I would ask to to please present YOUR narrative of what really happened in Europe from 1933 to 1945, and explain to me who organized the Holocaust, and how it was done? If such a great effort was made to forge documents, make people disappear or be silent, and create whole faked atrocities, faked photos, sham trials, coerced confessions, phone eyewitnesses, and so on, who did it - specifically? Where are the hidden operators who performed all these feats?
Who directed this campaign? Where was it based? Which authority? Since this conspiracy has held over 60 years, how was it passed down from generation to generation to ensure continued compliance all around the world? Who were the Canadian, British, French, New Zealand, Japanese, and Falkland Island authorities to ensure continued compliance? How were all the wartime Nazis and their descendants kept silent for 60 years? How were those who took part in the conspiracy kept silent?
What about their families and descendants? Where is the paper trail for this conspiracy? How was it accomplished without a single memo? And finally, if this conspiracy is so complete, so well-organized, and so perfect, why did they leave so many holes? Why didn't they forge the written order from Hitler to Himmler and other important documents? Why did they fail to wring confessions out of so many key Nazis?
Mr. Holocaust Denier, please feel free to give a detailed account of how a group of people, no matter how powerful, could manipulate the rest of the world's population into believing that a genocide of such proportions had taken place. What methods had they employed to hoodwink free-thinking individuals? Such an undertaking would have to be intrepid indeed to convince a single country. How had it been able to convince a host of other nations as well?
Even if it was possible, how had they been able to maintain complete secrecy? How was it that they had not suffered a single defection? An individual who, perhaps due to a disagreement with "the group," might opt to break ranks after 60 years and expose the whole shabang? Imagine the chat show invites; the fabulous book deals; the wealth and status that such a person could attain for finally offering up proof positive of the biggest historical hoax EVER perpetrated! Was this ring of conspirators totally void of greed and desire for fame and fortune?
Why didn't they notarize Anne Frank's diary, or better yet, keep her alive to say, "Yup, I wrote this?" Why did they let Bormann disappear and Eichmann and Mengele escape to Argentina? Why did it take the Israelis 25 years to find Eichmann, if they control the world? Why did they let Himmler, Ley, and Goering kill themselves without leaving behind a full confession? Why didn't they get one out of Rudolf Hess?
If the whole thing was to create a State of Israel subsidized by American dollars, why did they do such a lousy job, creating a truncated state surrounded by hostile neighbors? Why didn't they simply have Israel invade and conquer the whole Middle East, take over the oil supplies, and ensure high prices for the oil barons and bankers?
The shadowy figures who forged the Wannsee Protocols, the Einsatzgruppen reports, Himmler's Posen speech, etc., are first class hoaxers? The even shadowier persons who tortured Hoess and forced him to concoct a story about mass exterminations in gas chambers are terrible hoaxers? The people who tortured Eichmann and made him give ridiculous testimony to the Israeli courts are at least as bad? The people who bribed every single AR SS staff person tried in West Germany are slimy hoaxers deserving our contempt?
Gitta Sereny faked interviews with about a dozen AR SS staff and various peripheral figures and is a Zionist Hoaxtress without peer, unless we include Robert Lifton, who faked interviews with many Auschwitz doctors and pretended that they witnessed gassings and fatal injections?
This is just what comes off the top of my head in 2/3 minutes and must be barely the tip of the iceberg of one huge hoax. The question I have is this: are innocent believers also hoaxers?
Now to a question I have posed several times, Mr. Holocaust Denier, but you and people like you have avoided like the plague. Can you please name one person who was responsible for the actual post-war manipulation of the evidence described above? Naming entities and governments would help too, so that we can get a handle on the scope of all this and how the actual hoaxing activities have been covered up all this time?

Holocaust deniers are not truth seekers. They are propagandists - apologists for Hitler's Third Reich. They know all too well that the Holocaust really happened. What they want to do is change that narrative from being a horrific act of mass murder and genocide into being the heroic Aryan race protecting itself from a tribe of subhuman and sneaking conspiratorial banker/Communists, by exterminating the Jewish menace just as it was rearing up its ugly head to wreck humanity. Holocaust deniers are liars and propagandists, and usually not even very competent ones at that. They have simply been copying Goebbels for decades, but unfortunately for them, there is no substitute for the original.
They want the concentration camps to become memorials to the guards, the commandant and Hitler, the Jews to become extinct, and history to say it was all heroic, justified, and necessary. In short, it didn't happen, but the Jews got what they deserved. They seek to portray all those hundreds of elderly Jews who told Steven Spielberg that they were taken to Auschwitz with wives, children, siblings, parents, etc., who they have never seen since the selections on the ramp, as hoaxers.
Denial of genocide strives to reshape history in order to demonize the victims and rehabilitate the perpetrators. Denial of genocide is the final stage of genocide; it is what Elie Wiesel has called a "double killing." Denial murders the dignity of the survivors and seeks to destroy the remembrance of the crime.
