Today is the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz

There are many things on the net written by Holocaust revisionists of different types, but I discovered this interesting site refuting the revisionists' claims. 

Many Romanians and other Eastern Europeans doubt the established narrative. People who have lived under a dictatorship distrust all official narratives.

Raul Hilberg
Raul Hilberg, a very careful and intelligent American Jewish historian, was the great pioneer in the field of the Holocaust and considered the world's leading authority on the subject. He published in 1961 The Destruction of European Jews, still the leading history of the Holocaust, in three volumes and 1,273 pages.

He estimated that around 5.1 million Jews were murdered by the Germans in the Second World War or died of natural causes in captivity. Very large numbers died from typhus in camps such as Auschwitz, Theresienstadt and Bergen-Belsen. He estimated that 1.1 million Jews died in Auschwitz.

Raul Hilberg, incidentally, said that Holocaust revisionists and deniers performed a useful service by critiquing mainstream historians.
