The Holocaust is the greatest murder-mystery of the 20th century. Six million jews, we are told, perished at the hands of the “Nazis”—in gas chambers, ghettos, and concentration camps. They were starved, suffocated, and shot. Their bodies were buried in mass graves, or burned in the ovens of Auschwitz, or on open flames. And all simply because they were jews. It was the embodiment of evil, the greatest crime ever perpetrated.
Traditional historians claim to know about this crime in great detail. They have documents, photographs, and hard evidence. They have incriminating testimony from key National Socialists. Some of the gas chambers have survived. And they have innumerable jewish eyewitnesses. According to some, it is the “most well-documented event in history.”
And yet, when we ask detailed and pointed questions, our historians fall short. They don’t really know when, where, or how the jews died. They have no technical explanation of how it was possible, for example, to gas thousands of people per day in a single room, and then to dispose of their bodies—such that not a trace remains. They cannot find the mass graves that allegedly held thousands of bodies. They cannot explain wartime aerial photographs that show a disturbingly calm Auschwitz camp. And they refuse to even consider a raft of contradictory evidence. In fact, many aspects of the traditional story simply don’t add up. The deeper we look, the more puzzling the picture becomes—and hence, the great mystery.
The Great Holocaust Mystery: Reconsidering the Evidence
There are two possibilities; either it happened or it is the biggest hoax in history; this is the thinking by believers and revisionists. Is there another option to consider such as Soviet interdiction, both strategic and tactical nearing war termination and post war.
