Denying History takes a bold and in-depth look at those who say the Holocaust never happened and explores the motivations behind such claims. While most commentators have dismissed the Holocaust deniers as antisemitic neo-Nazi thugs who do not deserve a response, historians Michael Shermer and Alex Grobman have immersed themselves in the minds and culture of these Holocaust "revisionists." They have conducted personal interviews with the deniers, read their literature, monitored their Web sites, attended their conferences, engaged them in debate, and even traveled around Europe to conduct research at the Nazi extermination camps. Uncovering a complex social movement, the authors go much deeper than ever before in not only trying to understand the motives of the Holocaust deniers, but also refuting their points one by one. In the process, they show how we can be certain that the Holocaust happened and, for that matter, how we can confirm any historical event.

This book's author Mr. Micheal Shermer is quite the character. He's a self admitted manipulative liar and jewish shill for the express purpose of making money. He managed to prove this quite well when he appeared on the Donahue show in 1994 alongside Jewish born holocaust revisionist David Cole-Stein. He made an appearance on the show under the pretense of having shown up to debate David Cole and Mr. Bradley Smith.

The problem however, was that Mr. Shermer wasn't wanted on the Donahue show. They knew he was not able to add any real value to show as Cole & Smith are CLEARLY far more knowledgeable than them on the subject of revisionism. Putting aside his lack of expertise Shermer called Cole begging to be on the Phil Donahue show and Cole, being the benevolent jew that he is decided he would give Mr. Shermer a list of every single question he was going to bring up along with citations and sources. This page was a total of 38 Questions.

Micheal Shermer sent those 38 questions to the foremost Holocaust experts including Raul Hilberg, who admitted that they didn't have one single answer to one single question. Feeling the pressure of having no answers to David's excellent set of questions he chose to go on the Donahue show completely unprepared and presented absolutely no facts. He opted instead to just say that the holocaust happened because "alot of jews say it happened." And we have zero evidence, but we're "working on it".

after the show Shermer came to Cole bawling his eyes out, completely ashamed that he had sold out his friend who had been so nice to him.

Cole had asked him why he had sold him out over the phone earlier and recorded everything. He also had recorded conversations with all the experts who reviewed the questions and told this to the entire IHR and of course.... Mention of these recordings greatly aggravated Shermer. (recordings can be heard on ANC report by Ryan Dawson)

Cole accepted his apology, but later on he mentioned the incident while speaking at the IHR (INSTITUTE FOR HISTORICAL REVIEW) and Shermer hit the Ceiling!

He went from tears to rage and phoned JDL leader Irv Rubin (who happens to be a known murderer, maker of pipe bombs, neighborhood thug and Jewish racist extremist.) Telling him how David Cole was on the side of the revisionists and not the Jews calling him "a self hating jew" and saying "he's against israel". This led to David getting beat up by Irv Rubin in the street as a warning which would be followed up by a $4000 dollar bounty which David noted was "cheap and stereotypically jewish" which Rubin later increased to the amount of $25,000. Rubin was incarcerated and died in custody.

IN SHORT MICHEAL SHERMER IS THE KIND OF GUY THAT IS WILLING TO ENCOURAGE A CRAZED EXTREMIST TO GO THROUGH WITH MURDER FOR HIRE BECAUSE HE WAS EMBARASSED THAT NOT ONLY DID HE LOOK LIKE A FOOL BEING UNPREPARED, HE MADE A FOOL OF HIMSELF BY BETRAYING HIS FRIENDS FOR FAMOUS AQUAINTANCES THAT HE HAD MET ONLY MINUTES AGO.

ALL IN ORDER TO SELL MORE MAGAZINES. THIS BOOK WAS CREATED PURELY TO REFUTE THE CLAIMS OF DAVID COLE AND IS MORE OF AN ARGUMENTATIVE PIECE THAN A LEGITIMATE PIECE OF HISTORICAL LITERATURE.

Galileo was not a flat earth denier because he thought the earth was round rather, he had discovered the earth was round and knew it wasn't flat. Anyone using the term denyer is likely trying to mislead you.

Essentially instead of providing evidence for the holocaust happening he instead says the evidence doesn't matter and that we just need to keep looking until we find the evidence to prove it.

usually when a crime is under investigation and goes to trial, and that crime happens to be murder. The burden of proof is on the plaintiff to PROVE that people were killed. Shermer seems to believe that the burden of proof should be on the revisionists because they are challenging the established view. We have no murderer, no weapon, no bodies........ but fuck it lets just sentence the whole Waffen SS to death.
