Re: Endlösung (Final solution): die Endlösung der Judenfrage

Kershaw also writes at length in an essay in Hitler, the Germans and the Final Solution about how he evaluates the cumulative radicalization thesis of Mommsen, Broszat, and Streit - and relates it to his own views on Hitler; in the essay I have in mind he distinguishes between the period of improvis...

Re: Forensic Psychiatry and the "Holocaust Syndrome"

Is Irving mentally defective that he is unable to make a direct statement but must instead hedge, cavil, and to and fro as quoted above? Is he clearer elsewhere or always like that?

Re: Forensic Psychiatry and the "Holocaust Syndrome"

Irving (Lipstadt trial) denied that any Jew ever died in a gas chamber at Auschwitz. He pretty much accepted all other documented deaths including the other death camps, although this was after he had shifted from his initial position. Infact he was somewhat schooled on this, because for example, l...

Re: Forensic Psychiatry and the "Holocaust Syndrome"

Another crucial point about Bloxham that would also surprise BT is that he rejects the claim that the Holocaust was 'unique'. This rather explodes BT's implied fantasy about Holocaust historiography being enslaved to a narrative of unique Jewish suffering in history, that the Jews are depicted as s...

Re: samuel Untermeyer - origins of a myth, call for a war!

. . . LAURENCE REES: And worth mentioning that all of those things Hitler thought about the Jews weren’t the case at all were they? SIR IAN KERSHAW: No, no, no, absolutely not, no. Of course it was a complete figment this. A bizarre vision. Hunh? Kershaw's work - and this response of his - rubbish ...

Re: Endlösung (Final solution): die Endlösung der Judenfrage

LOL, been-there's quotations - he even boldfaces and enlarges Kershaw's conclusion that Hitler's violent anti-Jewish language "doesn’t necessarily mean at that time the physical eradication of every Jew that the Germans could lay their hands on. But implicit, it was a proto-genocidal notion" whilst ...

Re: Forensic Psychiatry and the "Holocaust Syndrome"

Bloxham accepts and starts from the premise that Jews were mass-murdered in gas chambers. No-one has been able to refute this. No one tried to refute this, from what I read. I for sure didn't. I showed that Bloxham rejected a planned and total genocide via gas chambers, which is what you originally...

Re: Forensic Psychiatry and the "Holocaust Syndrome"

. . . Note, Been-there, that StatMec, and I guess many others, is/are certainly not agreeing with Bloxham, and even less with me.. . . Actually, I think it is a great book, too, even if I do not agree with him on all his points (actually, the one under debate here! - Confino cites some cases of con...

Re: Forensic Psychiatry and the "Holocaust Syndrome"

The stalker is also a bad liar. Let's read his various renditions of the premises he witters about: All the accepted historical research hitherto HAS ALWAYS STARTED from the unproven premise that a 'final-solution, planned-genocide of ALL-Jews via homicidal-gassings' and Can anyone provide an exampl...

Re: Forensic Psychiatry and the "Holocaust Syndrome"

Yeah he's a sociopath at the very least, as he thinks that his own feelings of being offended by an old man teaching kids about things he may not have personally witnessed but are still basically true (...how low he's prepared to sink just to emabarass an old Jew who he thinks is over-stretching a ...
