A new survey suggests that many Asians, Africans, Middle Easterners, young people, Muslims, and Hindus believe that facts about the genocide have been distorted

My partner's parents were Holocaust victims. Yep, sure, they made it all up! Please!! How anyone can deny the Holocaust happened is beyond me. Absolutely DISGRACEFUL.

The facts have not been distorted. I am a prewar person and I saw it. Not all of it,but enough to know that it was a reality. People do not like to admit that there are some very unpleasant things in their world.

I have known people who survived, personally; whose concentration camp numbers were still visible, though faded with the years, on their wrists.
I knew a man who was in WWII, who, by wild coincidence , liberated his own first cousin at one of the infamous camps. I saw photos of them together, at the camp.
Then General Eisenhower, knowing, apparently too much about human character, insisted that his troops film the camps, and the people there, saying that "The time will come when people will not believe this."
I expect that some of the disbelief is based on innocent awe at the incredible scale of the horror: And the 6,000,00 statistic of Jews killed is, literally, only half the story, as I understand it, as 6,000,000 others (Christians, Gypsies, and on and on) were also killed.
That Muslims, or at least some of them, in Iran in particular, have made denial a matter of religious faith blows my mind! How does one incorporate such garbage into a major religious movement? If Scientology did it, i would think, "Yeah, it figures," as the whole thing is just one more science fiction story written by that fool.

I happen to be reading a new biography, called "Hitler, a Biography," by Ian Kershaw, a professor of modern history, at the University of Sheffield. He quotes Goebbels' own diary. Mary Fulbrook, another professor, and, by coincidence (but part of why she wrote the book) the God-Daughter of the wife of the Nazi administrator of the "county" in which Auschwitz was built, quotes letters from her God-Mother,, in her book "A Little Town Near Auschwitz."
At the Nuremberg trials, Eichmann, Goebbels, did not deny what they did, they "...were just following orders."
Goebbels argued that they did nothing new, in his interviews with the psychologist Gustave gilbert, while in prison, he, rather, cited the precedent for genocide in the U.S.A.: the fate of the American Natives.

Sadly,also, it seems to me, those who harbor anti-semitism are all too ready to let their agenda play with their minds!

Ignorance is bliss...

The majority of my grandfather's family were killed at Auschwitz.
So I guess according to the deniers they probably died in a train accident, instead of being forced to take a shower in zyklon-B gas...

So Holocaust deniers would believe that the meticulous documentation produced, and records kept, by the Nazis of their "Final Solution to the Jewish Problem" are forgeries made up and written by an international conspiracy of Jews to manipulate world opinion, just like the "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" was a "true" plan by Jews around the world to achieve world domination?

When people forget the lessons of history, those lessons are doomed to be repeated!

Those that deny history are doomed to repeat it.
There is ample documentation of these horrors. But of course, many will choose to look the other way. I call it the Ostrich syndrome. People unwilling to face reality.

The Holocaust was sadly all too real.

As were all the hundreds of Jewish progroms down through the centuries.

People should educate themselves.

Justin: I couldn't agree more. I don't see how blatant anti-Semitism fits in with the 'create a better world' ethos of Care2.

Racism is racism. Hate is hate.

Sad, but I think that the Romani should be included in the numbers as they were targeted as well. Perhaps there is some disbelief because so many members of the local populations in certain occupied territories participated actively in the killings of Jews and others (for example, the Ukrainians killed approximately 24,000 Jews, and also went to Poland to oversee the camps). One would also have to admit no country was willing to accept the jews as that was Hitler's first plan.

In addition to John S's point that gypsies were targeted for elimination by the Nazis, there were in fact eight categories of people targeted by the Nazis, since they were judged to be unworthy of incorporation into the Aryan race. The categories were broadly based on race, religion, politics, health, and criminal status. Specifically the groups targeted for elimination were: Socialists/Communists/anti-fascists/political prisoners in general who wore a red triangle, Anti-social people being a catch-all category that included the disabled/mentally ill/chronically ill/prostitutes/lesbians etc. who wore a black triangle, homosexuals/gay-men who wore a pink triangle, gypsies (brown triangle), Jehovah Witnesses/other religious opponents of fascism (purple triangle), criminals (green triangle), other ethnic groups e.g. Slavs/Poles/Russians etc. wore a blue triangle and of course the Jews wearing a yellow triangle or Star of David. The Nazis also used combinations of these to indicate someone who fitted more than one category, e.g. a gay Jew would've worn a yellow triangle and a pink triangle in the form of a Star of David.
