Hypocrisy and Forensics (Part 1)

Author: Jonathan Harrison
Whenever a case appears in which the victims were 'ethnic Germans', deniers drop their negationist stance and suddenly begin to use techniques of 'convergence of evidence' that they reject when applied to Holocaust mass graves. This can be illustrated with two recent examples.

Firstly, this Cesspit thread discusses the excavation of a grave at Malbork containing 1,800 bodies. As I believe in the 'convergence of evidence' and 'inference to the best explanation', I am happy to concur that the best explanation of the current evidence is that some or all of these persons were murdered by Soviet or Polish Communist authorities in 1945. What is striking, however, is that many of the hyper-positivist proofs demanded by deniers are not present in reports of this event. According to this AHF thread, there are no reports of teeth or bullets having been excavated. Where are the Gerdian demands for "just one spent bullet"? There are also no photographs of the complete mass grave. Even Cesspit regular Turpitz is aware of this discrepancy and has to concoct an absurd conspiracist hypothesis to account for it:
I wonder why they do not show us the 1800 skeletal remains? Is it because it will put the communist photo forgeries to shame?
The second example is this Lusitania thread. I have shown in this Memory Hole thread how Hargis would have dealt with the newspaper coverage of this investigation had the victims been Jews.

DEBATING THE HOLOCAUST: A New Look At Both Sides by Thomas Dalton, PhD

Publisher's Note: This is a non-Revisionist title for Theses & Dissertations Press. It will be the first book on the Holocaust, in publishing history, that will not take a Traditionalist or a Revisionist point of view. When you purchase this book, one-third of the proceeds will go to Germar Rudolf and his family.

Founded in 2000 the publishing company Theses & Dissertations Press is at the center of a worldwide network of scholars and activists who are working -- often at great personal sacrifice -- to separate historical fact from propaganda fiction. The founder of Theses & Dissertations Press is Germar Rudolf. Who is currently serving prison time for his published works and will be released on July 4, 2009.

As the new director of Germar Rudolf's American publishing division, I wish to express my outrage that the Holocaust, unlike any other historical event, is not subject to critical revisionist investigation. Furthermore I deplore the fact that many so-called democratic states have laws that criminalize public doubting of the Holocaust. It is my position that the veracity of Holocaust assertions should be determined in the marketplace of scholarly discourse and not in our legislatures bodies and courthouses.
