Argument: The cumulative evidence proves the Holocaust occurred

Issue Report: Criminalization of Holocaust denial


The History Department at Duke University, responding to a CODOH ad, unanimously adopted and published a statement noting: “That historians are constantly engaged in historical revision is certainly correct; however, what historians do is very different from this advertisement. Historical revision of major events. . . is not concerned with the actuality of these events; rather, it concerns their historical interpretation – their causes and consequences generally. There is no debate among historians about the actuality of the Holocaust… there can be no doubt that the Nazi state systematically put to death millions of Jews, Gypsies, political radicals and other people.”[1]
