No, but its sad how ignorant some people are. The holocaust happened, though believe what you want.
It is in Germany.
that is the STUPIDIST thing I ever heard...I've read that a professor who tried to show that there were no traces of the Xylon gas used in the bricks from the ruins of the ovens.......he was taken to court and lost his professorship!! now THAT is incredibly stupid.
To deprive a man of his livelihood due to his belief that's different than theirs!!!
OBSCENE, to say the least!!!
Should denying the genocide of 98 percent of the native Americans be a crime? Should denying any other genocides in history be a crime? I do not think so. It should be called what it is though, denial of facts for some reasons. It is always interesting what kind of thoughts are being paired with the denial...
It should not be illegal because everyone is entitled to freedom of speech however every opportunity must be made to counteract using argument and concrete evidence these claims - basically holocaust deniers have the right to deny the holocaust but we should have the right to counter-argue/ridicule/make sure the truth - backed up with hard evidence is out there and be far more vociferous in asserting the reality of the situation than the jackasses that claim it did not happen.
There have been several holocausts throughout history and I am not sure the slaughter of one group of people should be considered more or less horrible then the slaughter of others. For example I never see these kinds of questions about the killing fields of Cambodia. By the same token I don't think ignorance or even willful ignorance is necessarily criminal. Stupid certainly but not criminal.
There have been several mass slaughters through out history but never against one group of people for no other reason except their religion - Oh and there were 15.5 million Jews in the world prior to the event and fewer than ten million afterwards. More than a third of all Jews were murdered - no group was ever targeted so extensively in history and never for a reason only of religion. Understand that before the Holocaust was the largest organized murder in history - it was also the cover up for the largest organized theft in history - all property of all these Jewish people was taken by the Nazis.
well it wouldnt b classed as a crime as its a personal opinion or belief but a lot would agree its a crime that anyone should ever doubt that it happened
good i agree with that
You can't take away someone's right to their own opinion...no matter how wrong it is.
People can deny whatever they choose, they can depict what is fact or fiction. "Ignorance is bliss." The Holocaust did happen but we can choose to forget about it or not even learn of it's tragic history. But what you're saying is that those who choose to deny history should be...incarcerated?
Horrible. But then that's not entirely fair...people should choose to accept their history no matter how horrid the acts were from their ancestry...
That's like enforcing them to accept what happened and shove the blame and revolt upon themselves. We can only learn and prosper from our history and mistakes.

236 references to 6,000,000 Jews prior to the Nuremberg Trial announcement
CODOH frequenter Toshiro has done an amazing job and compiled a list of the newspaper
articles and books, dating from 1900 to 1945, in which Jews have claimed that specifically
six million (6,000,000) Jews, were in peril, would be killed, or had been killed.
So far, we have collected 236! The later ones from 1944 and 1945 are about Jews or
their allies, claiming that 6,000,000 Jews had been killed by the Nazis, before the corrupt
German who went on to work for the CIA; "confessed" that was the figure the Nazis had killed.
Also listed are eight "holocausts" of the Jews.
Many of the article can be found on my blog, but all can be tracked down with a little googling.
Much respect to Toshiro for this excellent piece of work.
