I read the comments, a few of those are actually disgusting neo nazi propaganda!

You've referred to a few people claiming that the Germans didn't have a Jewish extermination plan in their concentration camps. I recognize a few of the names, I don't have time to look up all of the unfamiliar ones.

The Nazis ran 4 types of detainment camps, lets call them Concentration, Work(forced labor), Extermination, and Transit

As it became clearer that Nazis would not win against the Allies, the Nazis stepped up efforts in the Extermination camps.

As far as I know, the American forces only saw the results of the detainment camps, and never got to the extermination camps (they were in territory that eventually was held by the Soviets).

There's a good book on how the empires of Hitler and the USSR squeezed between them the jews and slavs of Eastern Europe, resulting in millions of deaths, "Bloodlands"


Yes, a common modus operandi of Holocaust deniers is to make lists of people who were in some camp but never witnessed any gassing. This is then brought forward as a reason to question the existence of any gas chambers anywhere. It's such a stupid logic fallacy that there isn't even a name for it.


Can you clearly state for me whether you believe the mass extermination of Jews happened in WW2, or not?

I need to determine how much effort I should expend in debating you. Life is short.


Clearly have a full blown denier here, probably not worth the effort and stress.
