Debating the Holocaust: A New Look at Both Sides

For decades there has been raging a kind of subterranean debate, one of monumental importance. It is about the Holocaust -- not whether it happened, but HOW it happened, and to what EXTENT. On one hand we have the traditional, orthodox view: six million Jewish victims, gas chambers, cremation ovens and mass graves. On the other hand a small, renegade band of writers and re ...more

Based on an advance review copy...

This book is a must read for anyone wanting to know 'the other side' of the story. Keeping clear of racial polemics, this book is written in a calm and most factual manner and presents clear and objective evidence that at least forces one to reconsider the classic historical arguments about a policy of deliberate extermination on the part of the Third Reich. There is no hate here. No so-called anti-semitism. No pro-Nazi rhetoric. Anyone claiming so is either lyi

Imagine you were first to arrive at Auschwitz after WWII. How would you determine what had happened at the camp? What kinds of evidence would you look for? How would you support your version of events?

A Dubious read.

The Overwhelming Evidence in film, photographs, Nazi records and numerous witnesses of:

*the suffering inflicted by the Nazis on every nation they entered and often claimed to liberate,
*their Terror and Brutality,
*their Criminal Leadership,
*the words of Hitler,
*the War they waged against their own Germ

An important book that gives a good overview of the developments in historiography and the current state of affairs. Dalton sides with the "revisionists" mostly as a natural outcome of viewing at the actual data objectively, and as a witness of the dishonest and intellectually bankrupt way in which revisionists are slandered by the 'traditionalist' historians.

I would go further and say that most people in academia, in general, are just cogs in a wheel. And cogs too afraid of losing their place
