Deniers of the Holocaust: Who They Are, What They Do, Why They Do It

Front Cover
Twenty-First Century Books, Jan 1, 2001 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 112 pages
The Holocaust is one of the best-documented events in history, yet there are people, both scholarly and otherwise, who deny that it happened. There are also people who, while they acknowledge that incredible numbers of Jews and others perished during the Nazi reign, justify the deaths by citing starvation, disease, and even moral relativism. This book examines the individuals and organizations that wish to revise history, a wish usually stemming from the desire to meet anti-Semitic and other hateful ends. A look at the special role the Internet has played in such organizations' recruitment and influence is also included.
