In light of many media statements where so many claim the holocaust never happened, I thought I would pose it here. My children's great great grandparents were killed in the Warsaw invasion but one ancestor made it here marrying a Polish man to hide identity. Naturally, I believe the holocaust really happened. And you?

Many Muslims have been taught that the Holocaust was "made up by" the Jews. So, many of the Holocaust deniers are Muslims.
I thank each of you for your very impressive contributions to this question. I learned from it and I will use this in my generation journal to my children. Thank yo u so much! This answer went above and beyond explaining why some don't believe.
I agree. Thank you for your answer.
Photos as evidence. The shoes and hair at Auschwitz too. Some countries have denied it entirely. But I don't see how.
I totally agree. As a historian myself I see this too---particularly in the classroom! Skepticism is good and valuable, but the conspiracy mindedness needs to stop. Facts and evidence do exist; historical events are real; documents are authentic.
Great viewpoint. And from a historian - Veroniquebee. I appreciate your thought into such a matter so many would like to forget - but we must never, no matter how painful it is.
Chuck: I was very touched by your answer. From a brief second, I was with you in the gas chamber. I'm so glad you visited. You obviously could "feel" the presence of death there. Thank you so much for sharing this experience with me.
Holocaust deniers have no proof, but ironically, their response to any prove your claim demands is (basically) that one cannot prove a counter-factual. I think Holocaust minimizes are just as dangerous as the deniers and perhaps even more.
I'm with you. I don't think it matters how many, just that it happened. Whether it was 1 million or 6 million or somewhere in between, it saddens me.
Wow. Thank you for sharing that.
As I said, I firmly believe it happened. I know it took place. But I have heard numerous media quoting people who said it didn't. Thought I may find out why they are so dense of fact. I like your answer.
