I see holybuckets is still attempting to play the spin game by using specific citations that contradict specific assertions and then pretending that they therefore contradict the Holocaust as a whole.
Let's take his citation of "Auschwitz: La Memoire du Mal
". It is actually an article detailing the restoration of the Auschwitz crematorium, which was used as a gas chamber from 1941 to 1942, written in French. The quote
he used is not from the article he supposedly cited. This is obvious when you look at the details of the citation
What Conan actually wrote was, "L'exemple du crématoire I, le seul d'Auschwitz I, est significatif. Dans sa morgue fut installée la première chambre à gaz. Elle fonctionna peu de temps, au début de 1942: l'isolement de la zone, qu'impliquaient les gazages, perturbait l'activité du camp. Il fut donc décidé, à la fin d'avril 1942, de transférer ces gazages mortels à Birkenau, où ils furent pratiqués, sur des victimes essentiellement juives, à une échelle industrielle. Le crématoire I fut, par la suite, transformé en abri antiaérien, avec salle d'opération. En 1948, lors de la création du musée, le crématoire I fut reconstitué dans un état d'origine supposé. Tout y est faux: les dimensions de la chambre à gaz, l'emplacement des portes, les ouvertures pour le versement du Zyklon B, les fours, rebâtis selon les souvenirs de quelques survivants, la hauteur de la cheminée." In effect, he confirms that Crema 1 at Auschwitz was used as a gas chamber for several months before they decided to have the killings at Birkenau instead, and that when the Communist authorities in Poland decided to rebuild the crematorium (which had been turned into a bomb shelter with an operating room in the meantime), they got a lot of the details wrong. You'll note that he says that all of the following were wrong; the dimensions of the gas chamber, the placement of the doors, the openings where Zyklon B was poured, the ovens (rebuilt based on the memories of the survivors), and even the height of the chimney.
Unsurprisingly, Holocaust deniers used that to claim that the whole thing was bogus and that, therefore, there was no gas chamber at Auschwitz at all. This is false. Conan was reporting that they got a lot of the specific details about the gas chamber wrong when they reconstructed it.
Anyway, I'm almost certain that holybuckets simply pulled that quotation from a Holocaust denier website, which means he lied about the citation he used. He should have cited the website he actually got it from, and that later 'citation he used', rather than what he actually did.
Upon reviewing http://ihr.org/leaflets/auschwitz.shtml
, I'm certain that he just pulled these wholesale from it (or another similar website), since the quotes and citations he used are listed word-for-word here. Which he didn't cite, either time. Which means he knowingly lied about it.
