    PDF NEW [Denying the Holocaust The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory] One of the interesting points Liptadt makes in this book is not so much the nature of Holocaust denial itself but the inability of the media and public to distinguish between a debatable issue and one that lies beyond the parameters of reasoned discussion This deficiency has worsened since the book first appeared in the

Deborah E. Lipstadt ï 8 characters Free read Ö eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ï Deborah E. Lipstadt Denying the Holocaust The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory Read & Download ↠ 8 National prominence Holocaust deniers have also begun to make common cause with radical Afrocentrists such as Leonard Jeffries of New York's City University who retails racist myths about the Jews; and a recent campaign of ads in college newspapers calling for open debate on so called facts about the Holocaust suggests a bold new bid for mainstream intellectual legitimacy Lipstadt shows how Holocaust denial thrives in the current atmosphere of value relativism and argues that this chilling attack on the factual record not only threatens Jews but undermines the very tenets of objective scholarship that support our faith in historical knowledge T. This was the first book to read on the syllabus of my Political Theory class on the Ideologies of the Holocaust It was fascinating frustrating and insightful I do think it s a little dated being published in 1993 but Lipstadt s critical voice is still relevant today It amazes me that there are people in academia and journalism who spend their time and efforts in studying and convincing other people that the Holocaust didn t occur or rather that the Holocaust was a hoax

Deborah E. Lipstadt ï 8 characters Free read Ö eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ï Deborah E. Lipstadt Denying the Holocaust The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory Read & Download ↠ 8 The denial of the Holocaust has no credibility than the assertion that the earth is flat Yet there are those who insist that the death of six million Jews in Nazi concentration camps is nothing but a hoax perpetrated by a powerful Zionist conspiracy Forty years ago such notions were the province of pseudohistorians who argued that Hitler never meant to kill the Jews and that only a few hundred thousand died in the camps from disease; they also argued that the Allied bombings of Dresden and other cities were worse than any Nazi offense and that the Germans were the true victims of World War II For years those who made such claims were dismissed. Denying the Holocaust is a thorough exploration of the rise and development Holocaust denial Lipstadt s book examines the evolution of Holocaust denial from its immediate post war origins to the rise of a modern denial movement along with an examination of the most famous and influential deniers and their claims This is a fascinating story which begins with early instances of Holocaust denial as espoused by historians such as Harry Elmer Barnes and Austin J App to the development of entire organizations devoted to denying the Holocaust such as the US based Institute for Historical Review considered by many to be the mecca for Holocaust deniers world wide The Institute even has its own publishing house the Noontide Press which publishes books and pamphlets denying the Holocaust along with classic antisemitic texts such as The Protocols of the Elders of ZionHolocaust deniers agree on a number of points Nazi Germany did not systematically exterminate Jews during World War 2 and there was no mass murder in extermination camps and gas chambers and the number of Jews killed during the War is significantly lower than the accepted figures but Holocaust denial is rarely an isolated phenomenon rather deniers engage in it as a part of apologia for Nazi Germany in general and Adolf Hitler in particular Common claims include Germany being provoked into war by Britain France and sometimes America invasions of countries as a necessity to protect their persecuted German minorities or even being forced to react militarily against aggressive and threatening Poland in this world everyone is out to destroy Germany with Hitler acting as a statesman devoted to protect his country resorting to conflict only after all of his patient diplomatic efforts at maintaining peace have failed Although Holocaust denial is central to Nazi apologetics it is rarely the only part of it I believe that it would prove very difficult to find a person who would deny that a Nazi genocide of Jews has taken place but at the same time acknowledge antisemitism totalitarianism hegemonic imperialism and war crimes of Nazi GermanyHolocaust deniers and Nazi apologists either ignore historical evidence which does not fit their already made conclusions or twist it to conform to their view of the world Such is the case of David Irving a British author of many books on World War II once celebrated for his talent of unearthing new historical documents now notorious and reduced to speaking at far right gatherings and private lectures Although Lipstadt is heavily critical of Irving s practices and names him the most dangerous spokespersons for Holocaust denial her book is by no means focused on him or his work he is just one of the many figures which she correctly associated with denying the Holocaust Nonetheless Irving sued Lipstadt for libel in 2000 and in English law the burden of proof is on the defendant which meant that Lipstadt had to prove that Irving is a Holocaust denier and an apologist for Hitler who has manipulated evidence to suit his needsIrving lost the case spectacularly British historian Richard J Evans examined his published work thoroughly and found that Irving has knowingly manipulated and distorted real documents and used forgeries as sources concluding that none of his writing or lectures can be trusted as an accurate description of historical events and that Irving himself could not be trusted as a historian The Irving Trial is the most famous case of a Holocaust denier even so because it was Irving who sued and had all the possibilities of proving the truth of the truth about the Holocaust in a court of law but ended up being exposed as a fraud and racistAlthough the subject is interesting and Lipstadt does a good job at presenting it there are elements in the book which are troubling and spoil it First of all there is not a word in it about the non Jewish victims of the Holocaust Soviet POWs Ethnic Poles Belorussians Ukrainians and others communists homosexuals and the disabled Are they not part of the same tragedy which befell the Jews and not worthy of the same attention and commemoration How much of Holocaust studies focuses on these victims Hitler s famous speech at his Obersalzberg residence delivered on the 22nd of August 1939 is the one where he openly calls for ruthless extermination of an entire people physical destruction of men women and children without mercy and compassion using the Armenian genocide as an example This speech is often used as proof of Hitler s familiarity with genocide and his intention to carry one out during the war But how many people know that this speech calls for genocide not of Jews but of Poles At another point Lipstadt dismisses comparisons of Nazism with Stalinism she states that Stalin s campaign of terror was arbitrary whereas Hitler s was targeted at a particular group and goes on to say that while Hitler s Germany targeted every single Jew no citizen of the Soviet Union assumed that deportation and death were inevitable conseuences of his or her ethnic origins This is simply not true as in the Soviet Union entire nationalities were deported precisely because of their ethnicity In 1937 all ethnic Koreans were deported from the Russian Far East to unpopulated areas of Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan The official reason for this mass deportation was to prevent Japanese espionage in the Soviet Union at the time Korea was under Japanese rule In 1917 the Soviet Union began what would be known as Decossackization a process aimed to eliminate the Kuban and Don Cossacks as distinctive ethnic group as they were perceived to be collectively hostile to the new regime This is the first example of the Soviet Union targeting an entire population of people with the full intent of ultimately exterminating it and it happened long before Hitler or even Stalin came to powerDuring the Great Purge the Soviet NKVD carried out a series of what would be known as the National Operations where the Soviet government explicitly targeted entire populations purely on ethnic grounds Deportation of Koreans was one of them but another one which has to be mentioned is the Polish Operation Conducted between 1937 and 1938 it targeted ethnic Poles living in the Soviet Union and accused them of sabotage and spying for the Polish government Their social class did not matter they were targeted and killed because they were Polish Although official orders called for arrest of Polish spies it was openly acknowledged by the NKVD as an order to exterminate all Poles and even those who were perceived to be Polish The operation was carried out as such without any judicial trial whatsoever to fill in large arrest uotas the NKVD resorted to the crudest of methods one example was to use phone books to find and lock up people with Polish names Men were summarily shot and their wives and mothers were deported to labor camps in Kazakhstan and Siberia Their children were taken by state orphanages to be brought up as Soviet citizens deliberately severing any connection to their Polish origins All possessions of the accused were confiscated purposefully leaving nothing for their parents and in laws which ultimately left them to perish as well Stalin openly encouraged the NKVD to keep digging and cleaning out this Polish filth It is estimated by official Soviet records that than 139000 people have been sentenced out of whom approximately 111000 were executed five times than in the Katyn massacre Is this arbitrary terror It also has to be noted that while Jews were persecuted in Germany after Adolf Hitler s rise to power beginning with boycott of Jewish businesses to ultimately stripping them from their legal rights Nazi Germany began the mass killing of Jews after invading Poland and subseuently the Soviet Union with the long decision process regarding the Final Solution culminating at the infamous conference in the Berlin suburb of Wannsee in 1942 In comparison Stalin undertook his Great Terror in peacetime with entire populations being targeted specifically on ethnic and national grounds leaving the British historian Timothy Snyder to conclude that it was Stalin not Hitler who initiated the first ethnic killing campaigns in interwar EuropeWhile I do not want to suggest that ms Lipstadt does not have compassion and empathy for other victims of other genocides her sharp dismissal of them is crude and ill considered a historian should truly know better Acknowledging and remembering these victims does not take anything away from the enormity of Jewish suffering glossing them over or completely disregarding them strips them of their dignity memory and historical importance Last but not least the book was first published in 1993 and to the best of my knowledge has not been revised since It does not cover the development of antisemitism and Holocaust denial outside Europe and North America a 2014 study by the Anti Defamation League found that the majority of Holocaust deniers live in the Middle East and North Africa with antisemitic attitudes being most prevalent in that region Also because of its publication date Denying the Holocaust completely omits the role that the internet plays in Holocaust denial the rise and development of internet communities such as Stormfront which gather Holocaust deniers and white supremacists from all over the world Video and audio materials focused on denying the Holocaust are easier to spread than ever and so is denial itself anyone who has ever watched a YouTube video focused on Germany in World War 2 will understand it immediately after reading the comments Although the book does much well there is also much to improve and add to it though unfortunately I don t know if it ll ever see a new edition

Deborah E. Lipstadt ï 8 characters Free read Ö eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ï Deborah E. Lipstadt Denying the Holocaust The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory Read & Download ↠ 8 As harmless cranks operating on the lunatic fringe But over the past decade they have begun to gain a hearing in respectable arenas and now in the first full scale history of Holocaust denial Deborah Lipstadt shows how despite tens of thousands of living witnesses and vast amounts of documentary evidence this irrational idea not only has continued to gain adherents but has become an international movement with organized chapters independent research centers and official publications that promote a revisionist view of recent history One sign of the movement's disturbing resonance is the rise of such figures as the Holocaust denier David Duke to. I first became aware some years ago that there are people who do not believe the Holocaust happened and ever since I have been meaning to read this book It is fascinating and frightening reading and will make most people reconsider their stance on free speech The author has a low key style of writing which makes what she has to say all the impressive It would be so easy to rant about people who seem to ignore facts in their attempts to rewrite historyHolocaust denial it seems has been around since the end of World War II and has attracted supporters from many right wing movements who see it as grist to their own mill Anyone who doesn t conform to the WASP stereotype is not acceptable to these groups Historians have always disagreed over their interpretations of historical events but mainly they do not disagree over whether these events actually happened But there are people who claim that the Holocaust is a huge hoax perpetrated by the Jews and aided and abetted by the Allies to keep Germany in a state of guilt Deniers claim that all eye witness accounts of the concentration camps and the gas chambers are faked and that there were no mass killings of Jews or anyone else Many people died because of malnutrition towards the end of the war when the Allies had cut off German supply lines which meant that concentration camps did not receive food that is their theory Deniers go further than this by saying that all the documents in archives have been faked and people have been bribed to talk about their imaginary experiences so add verisimilitude to the hoax I found myself laughing out loud at the idea that thousand and millions of people are involved in forging documents placing them in archives ready to be found at a later date and writing fake memoirsAnyone who has told a secret in confidence to one other person knows that the people you have who know about a secret then the less secret it is Deniers have no problem ignoring evidence that does not fit their thesis They even go so far as to say that all the defendants at the Nuremberg trials confessed to crimes they did not commit because they were told they had to support the hoax Many deniers start from a position of Anti Semitism and also a belief in the Illuminati and the huge worldwide plot to have the world run by Jews with everyone else subjected to their cause They fail to see that this scenario is very similar to their ideas that there should be a right wing dictatorship ruling the worldWhat disturbed me most about this book was the way Holocaust deniers launch ad hominem attacks on anyone who does not agree with them If you can t argue your point using facts to back it up instead of saying everyone has been brainwashed who doesn t agree with you then you really don t have any rational way of explaining what you believe to be the truth If the facts supporting the deniers contentions were so clear cut then they would stand on their own meritI am all for free speech and the right to express your own point of view however distasteful but to dismiss all well documented facts which contradict your own thesis is not in the best traditions of scholarship The right to free speech does not include the right to say that everyone who doesn t accept what you say is stupid and has been brainwashed The book contains many references to the sources uoted which will provide further reading for anyone who wants to know about this fascinating and though provoking subject There is also an index
