People Who Don't Believe In Concentration Camps-Holocaust Deniers.
People who do not believe the Holocaust ever happened are called Holocaust Deniers. They generally believe the German Government had no official policy or intention of extermination of the Jews. There were no concentration camps, gas chambers, or transportation to concentration camps. Many Holocaust Deniers openly state that the Holocaust is a hoax, a Jewish conspiracy to help Jews become better people at the expense of others. The main focus on Holocaust Deniers are gas chambers and Jews. After all only Jews were sent to Concentration Camps, if they even existed.
A man named Jan Karsk wrote a report that gas chambers were not only, and not built very well, but it was impossible to gas 6 million Jews to death. The Holocaust Deniers believe what he wrote, that gas chambers were very small, and only a few Jews died during WW11. This hub will focus mostly on concentration camps and the people who died in them. People like the Gypsies, the Elderly, and the people who had mental problems.
There are Four major concentration camps, which the deniers say did not exist. They are named Auschwitz, Buchenwald, Dachau, and Treblinka. But, there were actually 23 concentration camps. The USHMM is an encyclopedia of the camps and ghettos. 1933-1945. Volume 1, Focusing on SS- Run Concentration Camps.
Why do Holocaust Deniers only focus on Gas Chambers? Each concentration camp was different.
Auschwitz- Many of the of the executions took place outside the camp. Large pits had been dug. Soldiers would line people up in front of the pit, the simply shot them in the head. One by one, each time a man would fall into the pit, another would be lined up. This happened over and over. People in Auschwitz also died because of starvation, and because they became very sick. They were so sick, they just simply died. However, the gas chambers were also used, starting in Autumn of 1914.-
Buchenwald- The second camp the Holocaust Deniers claim did not exist had a program for medial experiments. The program for medical experiments was started on the people in the camp in 1941. There were so many medical experiments that en entire hub could be written about each one of them. As a result of these medical experiments many people died. The hub cannot describe the medical experiments in detail because it would be too graphic. However, information can be found at The Jewish Virtual library.org
Dachau- The Holocaust Deniers believe that Dachau may have existed, but it was not a bad place. This was a good camp, because it did not just have Jewish people. This camp had other people, so they could associate with each other. Some of the people in this camp were German Communists, Jehovah Witnesses who protested against Hitler, Social Democrats, Gypsies, Homosexuals, and people with Mental Issues. Part of this camp was also used for medical experiments. Many people in this camp were killed in the gas chambers, but once again people were shot, starved, and some got sick or simply died in their sleep.
Treblinka- The last camp this hub is going to focus on is Treblinka which was located in forests North East of Poland. Treblinka was known among many Nazis as the 'Extermination Center'. Many horrors happened at Treblinka and came from testimonies of the Nazi Soldiers who were there. Their names are Willi Mantz, Kurt Franz, and SS Oberscharfuerer Heinrich Metthes.
There is so much evidence, history, books, films, pictures, and even testimony about Concentration Camps. The horrors or Concentration Camps and the millions of Jews, Gypsies, Jehovah Witnesses, the Elderly People, the list goes on and on. These people were gassed to death, shot, starved, died from sickness, or even medical experiments.
With all this evidence, why do the Holocaust Deniers think the Holocaust did not happen? Since they think it is a " Jewish Conspiracy" perhaps the Holocaust Deniers are racist against the Jews. Perhaps they do not understand, the evil of racism.
