“But, but, but… if they weren’t ‘holocausted’
where did they go?"
where did they go?"
. .. . .. . .. . ..
A very frequent objection to revisionist arguments is that revisionists cannot describe in detail what happened to the Jews who were transported to the "extermination camps" but who were (according to revisionists) not killed.
As noted in previous sections, there were numerous other camps in Poland and adjacent areas to which deportations occurred and possibly after first transiting through the "extermination camps" without being killed.
Documentary evidence, such as transport records, contradicting the politically correct version are argued by revisionists to have been destroyed. Not just the Allies, but also the Germans may have destroyed such records, but with different motivations. For example, "Aktion Reinhard" was according to revisionists a plunder operation involving stealing Jewish property, which the involved Germans likely had an interest in concealing.
A seldom mentioned aspect is that cultish H-true-believers cannot exactly answer the question of "where did they go?" either!
This is demonstrated by, for example, H-true-believers stating very different numbers of deaths at different camps, as discussed in the section "Very widely differing claims on the number of deaths at different Holocaust camps".
H-true-believers claim this to be due to causes such as the allegedly very incomplete camp death records and more generally due to many German documents having been destroyed by a German conspiracy in order to hide the Holocaust. See also the article on the Alleged German conspiracy to hide the Holocaust.
Thus, both revisionists and the more intelligent, sane, honest H-true-believers state that documents are missing, that cover-ups occurred, and that demographic estimates are uncertain.
That it is not possible to exactly document the movements of individuals does not mean that they must have died or that they must have been killed in gas chambers.
Revisionists have also argued that H-true-believers cannot explain what happened to the corpses resulting from the supposed mass killings. The alleged burning of some of the corpses on pyres would still leave behind massive amounts of remains. See Holocaust material evidence: Corpses.
Another argued problem for the H-true-believers is explaining where the very large numbers of “Holocaust survivors” came from, if the Jews under German control were almost all killed (see the section “Other methods”). A related argued problem is the origin of the very large number of Jews in camps for displaced persons in Europe, including in Germany, during the postwar period.
In 2000, Jewish organizations demanding compensation stated that there were still around 1 million living Holocaust survivors. A demographic estimate based on this is that in 1945 there were between 3.5 and 5 million Holocaust survivors.
In 1987, the German Federal Ministry of Finance had received compensation claims from around 4.4 million Holocaust survivors.
