Revising History: An Introduction to Holocaust Revisionism

Shortly after the conclusion of WWII came the development of a radical theory regarding the legitimacy of the Holocaust, known as Holocaust Revisionism (and commonly referred to as Holocaust Denial). Given the photographic and testimonial evidence of both concentration camp survivors and former Nazi officials, one might wonder what evidence Revisionists could possibly use to support this theory. This brief introduction to Holocaust Revisionism will examine Revisionist theory and evidence as well as prominent figures within the movement, including Mark Weber and Arthur Butz. Attention will also be given to the current activity of Revisionist organizations within the United States.
