Amen sister! This answer so eloquently answer the question. The Holocast happened. Millions of men, women and children died horribly period. There can be no debate on it.

We have truth and history on our side.
The Holocaust is proven, and anyone who says it was different IMHO is not giving an 'opinion', but is at least guilty of a hate crime. Holocaust denial is a form of racial abuse.
It is important to teach as many people as possible this history. Therefore the United Nations General Assembly not only adopted a resolution to declare January 27th as the new annual international Holocaust remembrance day but also calls on member nations to develop educational programs, emphasizing both "the duty to remember" and "the duty to educate" future generations about the mass slaughter.
At very long last, now even people like David Irving say: "I made a mistake when I said there were no gas chambers at Auschwitz"
Austria is where the Nazis were in power. Democracy is not so deeply based there. When the law was introduced in Austria in 1947, its intent was to prevent the return of National Socialism. That is why people in Austria think this law still is important today.
In the late 1960s, 40 % of the people in Austria told the opinion pollsters that "life wasn't that bad under the Nazis". Currently it is also a crime in Israel and also in France, Germany, Israel, Belgium, Poland, Lithuania and Switzerland.

Out of 192 countries in the world (including the Vatican), there are exactly 11 countries who have laws against Holocaust denial. As I have said before, there is nothing stopping anyone from questioning official accounts as long as they don't do it in the countries where it is illegal.
