My Holocaust Problems -
By Guiseppe Furioso

The Holocaust consists of three basic elements:

(1) Approximately six million Jews were deliberately killed.

(2) These killings were part of a state sponsored program on the part 
of the Third Reich whose ultimate goal was the total eradication of 
the Jewish people.

(3) The bulk of these murders took place in special death camps where 
the principal mechanism of execution was the homicidal gas chamber 
that utilized Zyclon B, a commercial pesticide whose active 
ingredient was hydrogen cyanide.

  That the Third Reich possessed the technological and administrative 
means to carry out such a vast amount of killing there is little 
doubt. The Soviet Union with significantly inferior assets in these 
areas was able to kill far greater numbers of human beings. 
Furthermore, the armies of the Third Reich succeeded in killing at 
least ten million of its heavily armed military opponents in the 
course of World War II. Hence the killing of six million unarmed 
civilians should not have presented any unique problems to such an 
industrially advanced and bureaucratically efficient state as Nazi 
Germany, on the contrary, it would have been far easier.

  My doubts about the Holocaust are not centered around whether it 
could have happened but whether it did happen. In fact many of the 
doubts that I have are a direct consequence of the fact that I have 
no doubt that it actually could have happened...but certainly not in 
the ways that have been described thus far in the ''official'' 

  It is part of the Western tradition in legal, scientific and 
intellectual matters that those asserting something have the burden 
of proof and that those who disagree are not required to provide 
evidence. This tradition however has been turned on its head 
regarding the Holocaust since the ''historical truth'' of the 
Holocaust has been posited in advance. Furthermore, even to express 
doubts can result in criminal penalties in at least 11 so-called 
democratic countries and the ruining of lives and careers in numerous 

Listed below are some of the ''problems '' I have with the Holocaust. 
Should these be cleared up, it would go a long way toward my 
accepting it Šthey are in no particular order.

1) Why did Elie Wiesel and countless other Jews survive the Holocaust 
if it was the intention of the Third Reich to eliminate every Jew 
they got their hands on? Elie was a prisoner for several years; other 
Jews survived even longer. Most of these ''survivors'' were ordinary 
people who did not have any unique expertise that the Germans could 
have exploited for their war effort. There was no logical reason for 
them to be kept alive. The very existence of more than a million 
survivors even today, some sixty years later, contradicts one of the 
basic components of the Holocaust i.e. that the Germans had a policy 
to eliminate every Jew they got their hands on.

2) Why is there no mention of the Holocaust in Churchill's six volume 
History of the Second World War or the wartime memoirs of either De 
Gaulle or Eisenhower or any of the other lesser luminaries who wrote 
about the Second World War. Keep in mind all these were written years 
after the war ended and thus after the Holocaust had been allegedly 
proven by the Nuremburg Trials?  With regard to the Holocaust, the 
silence of these " conoscenti " is deafening!

  3) What was an inmate infirmary (and a brothel) doing in Auschwitz 
if in fact it was a death camp?

4) Why would the Germans round up Jews from their far flung empire, 
thereby tying up large numbers of personnel and rolling stock, while 
fighting a world war on two fronts to deliver people to ''death 
camps'' hundreds of miles away who were then executed upon 
arrivalŠwouldn't a bullet on the spot have appealed to legendary 
German sense of efficiency?

5) Why after sixty years have historians been unable to come up with 
a single German document that points to a Holocaust? Should we 
believe the likes of Raul Hilburg that in the place of written orders 
there was an "incredible meeting of the minds" by the literally tens 
of thousands of people who would have had to coordinate their actions 
in order to carry out an undertaking of this magnitude?

6) How come it is still insisted upon that six million Jews were 
killed when the official Jewish death toll at Auschwitz, the flagship 
of the Holocaust gulag, has been reduced from a immediate post war 
figure of 3 [?] million, to a figure of somewhat less than one 
million? Why do many respond to this observation by saying, " what's 
the difference whether it's six million or one million''. The answer 
is that the difference is five million. Another difference is that 
saying so can get you three years in an Austrian jail...just ask 
David Irving!

7) All of Germany's wartime codes were compromised including the one 
used to send daily reports from Auschwitz to Berlin. The transcripts 
of these messages make no mention of mass executions or even remotely 
suggest a genocidal program in progress. Furthermore it has been 
insisted that the Germans used a kind of euphemistic code when 
discussing their extermination program of the Jews e.g. final 
solution, special treatment, resettlement etc. Why was it necessary 
for them to use such coded euphemisms when talking to one another 
unless they thought their codes had been cracked by the Allies?

8) The water table at Auschwitz lies a mere 18 inches below the 
surface which makes claims of huge burning pits for the disposal of 
tens of thousands of victims untenable.

9) Initially, claims were made that mass executions in homicidal gas 
chambers had taken place in camps located within the boundaries of 
the old Reich e.g. Dachau, Bergun-Belsen. ''Evidence'' to that effect 
was every bit as compelling as what was offered for other camps, 
located in occupied Poland, yet without explanation in the early 
sixties we were told that this was not the case and that all the 
''death camps'' were located in the East i.e. Poland outside  (some 
would say conveniently) of the probing eyes of western scholars.

10) No one has been able to reconcile the eyewitness accounts that 
personnel entered the gas chambers after twenty minutes without any 
protective gear and the fact that Zyclon B was a "time release" 
fumigant that would have had a lethal capability for at least another 
twenty four hours. And that even after twenty four hours the corpses 
would have themselves  remained sufficiently contaminated by the 
hydrogen cyanide gas that they would have had the capacity to kill 
anyone who touched them who were not wearing protective gear.

11) Why do we no longer hear claims that the Germans manufactured 
soap, lamp shades and riding britches from the bodies of dead 
JewsŠcould it be that in the light of modern forensics and DNA 
knowledge these claims are totally untenable?

12) Why do we no longer hear claims that huge numbers of Jews were 
exterminated in massive steam chambers or electrocuted on special 
gridsŠ''evidence'' of this was presented at NuremburgŠevidence that 
sent men to the gallows.

14) Elie Wiesel has been described as " the Apostle of Remembrance" 
yet in his memoir, ''Night'' which deals with his stay at Auschwitz 
he makes no mention of the now infamous homicidal gas chambers. Isn't 
this a bit like one of the Gospels making no mention of the Cross?

15) Virtually every survivor who was examined at Auschwitz says that 
he or she was examined by the infamous Dr. Mengele.

16) According to survivor testimony, hundreds of thousands of Jews 
were executed at Treblinka and then buried in mass graves in the 
surrounding area. Why is it that extensive sonar probing of these 
burial grounds reveals that this alleged final resting place for 
Holocaust victims has remained undisturbed since at least the last 
ice age?

17) ''Proof'' of the Holocaust rest primarily on survivor testimony; 
there little if any hard evidence. The best of this has been 
described by Jean Claude Pressac as merely ''criminal traces''. Even 
Judge Grey who presided at the Irving-Lipstadt Trial commented that 
he was surprised the evidence pointing to the Holocaust was 
''extremely thin''. To paraphrase Arthur Butz, ''a crime of this 
magnitude would have left a mountain of evidence''Šwhere is it? There 
was more hard evidence against OJ Simpson at his trial and he was 

18) Why has Holocaust Revisionism been criminalized in at least 
eleven counties Šwhat other historic truth needs the threat of prison 
or the destruction of one's career to maintain itself. Should someone 
be sent to prison for expressing skepticism about the official 
Chinese claim that they suffered thirty five million dead in World 
War II ?

19) Why do the court historians insist that "denying the Holocaust" 
is like denying slavery or saying the earth is flat when it is 
nothing of the sort. The leading Revisionists are first rate scholars 
who hold advanced degrees from the world's leading universities. Is 
there anyone comparable among those who say the world is flat or that 
slavery never existed?

20) Promoters of the Holocaust have expressed concerns about the 
remembering the Holocaust once the last survivors die. Why haven't 
Civil War historians expressed similar concerns since the last 
survivor of that conflict died in 1959.

21) Survivors of the Holocaust have testified that smoke billowed 
from the crematoriums as they consumed the bodies of murdered 
victimsŠsome eyewitnesses even claimed they could detect national 
origins by the color of the smoke. How can this be reconciled with 
the fact that properly operating crematoriums do not produce smoke of 
any color?

22) According to the official version of the Holocaust hundreds of 
thousands of Hungarian Jews were rounded up in mid 1944 and sent to 
Auschwitz where most were gassed immediately upon arrival and their 
bodies were disposed of by burning in huge open air pits using 
railroad ties and gasoline. Why is that there is no evidence of these 
huge funerary pyres in the high resolution surveillance photos taken 
by Allied aircraft  who were overflying the camp on a daily basis 
during this time period. Furthermore, why have no remains been found, 
since open pit burning, even when gasoline is used,  generates 
insufficient heat to totally consume a body?

23) All of the liberated camps were littered with corpses; is there a 
single autopsy report or any other forensic evidence that shows that 
even a single one of these deaths was a consequence of poison gas?

24) The death toll for the Holocaust relies exclusively on population 
statistics provided by Jewish sources; has any independent 
demographic study been produced that shows that approximately six 
million Jews were "missing" at the end of the war?

25) Why do the wartime inspection reports of camps made by the 
International Red Cross contain no references to mass executionsŠit 
strains credulity that such monumental crimes could be hidden. The 
only explanations are that either these crimes were not occurring or 
that the Red Cross was complicit in a cover up.

26) Why has there been no effort to respond to the Leuchter Report?

27) " The Holocaust was technologically possible because it happened 
".  Why is this intellectually bankrupt argument, which turns 
scholarship on its head, considered by the promoters of the Holocaust 
as historical truth, considered a sufficient response to the mounting 
Revisionist evidence to the contrary?

28) What other historical truths rely to the extent that the 
Holocaust does on so-called "eye witness" testimonyŠand why have none 
of these witnesses ever been cross examined? ***

29) According to the official version of the Holocaust, the Jews 
remained ignorant of their fate until the very end so skillful were 
their Nazis murderers in deceiving their victims. How can this 
ignorance be reconciled with the fact that the Jews have historically 
been as a group, the most literate and highly informed people on the 
planet with legendary access to the highest echelons of government.
