As a Jew sho has visited Auschwitz and read a lot of history from the period, I am naturally inclined to think historians have basically gotten the story right. However, I'm also naturally skeptical and even moreso after the massive psyops of recent years. Therefore, I'm willing to consider this article on its merits.

I think you're point regarding the possible confusion over the absolute numbers of Jewish deaths may be reasonable. There was no doubt room for confusion regarding Eastern European Jews who may have perished along with many others from the war itself. Nonetheless, there is no doubt that a massive extermination effort in the concentration camp occurred and that many of those Jews were transported from France, Germany and other Western and Central European countries. Earlier policy discussions among the Nazis regarding relocation of the Jews from Europe were given up when they realized they wouldn't have the resources (especially shipping) to do so, and especially as the war started to turn against them.

If the number that died from factory style extermination was less, what difference would that make in our understanding of a situation where an advanced Western country with prior liberal(traditional sense) democratic norms decides to use the state apparatus to purposefully commit genocide/ethnic cleansing? Would 3 million deaths instead of 6 million be insufficient to evaluate what happened and why? Or to try to prevent it in the future?

The strongest evidence for the official story being basically correct in my view is hitlers own words. He literally talks about gassing Jews in mein kampf, and later his “prophecy speech” saying the Jews would cease to exist in Europe if a world war broke out.

But the tribal-narcissistic idea that what the Jews suffered was somehow unique and more evil than the Armenian genocide or the gulag or the holodomor (carried out by the Jewish majority NKVD btw) or any other similar atrocity is obviously nonsense

So the pogroms, cattle cars, concentration camps, and deaths were real, but not the gas chambers? Be a Mensch.

When I read that the death toll for auschwitz had been officially reduced from 4 million to max 2 million, I wondered how the number of Jews killed in the holocaust did not go down to 4 million also. https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-xpm-1992-05-07-9202100662-story.html

This is NOT a list; it is only an image. I can only wonder what the author is trying to hide. (Jan 13, 2024)

Austrian lagers (Mathausen, Gusen), Dachau and Sachsenhausen were discovered by the Wallies.

Were extermination camps only discovered by Soviet troops?
