But ignorance.....can ignorance not be remedied through education?
I've seen many posts on ATS where people say things because its what they think they know, rather than the actual fact. Thats ignorance.

Why would any Jews die from a lack of sanitation or supplies? Did they always live in camps? Did they congregate hundreds if not thousands of miles from their original homes by choice? Did they cross borders of their own volition? Why would a doctor, or a shop owner or a teacher leave the comfort of their home and reside in such heinous conditions.
Nassi is a Hebrew term meaning "Prince roughly". In Antiquity, it was the title given to the leader of Sanhédrin. This title was created into when Sanhédrin lost confidence in the capacity of the priests of high row to be used as leaders. In Antiquity, 13 Adar was always announced by Nassi. Certain important Jewish personalities carried this title, for example Rabbi Yehouda HaNassi. In the modern use, Nassi also means "President". It is the term used in modern Hebrew to appoint any Head of democratically elected State.
Nazi Look up Nazi at Dictionary.com 1930, from Ger. Nazi, abbreviation of Ger. pronunciation of Nationalsozialist (based on earlier Ger. sozi, popular abbreviaton of "socialist"), from Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei "National Socialist German Workers' Party," led by Hitler from 1920. The 24th edition of Etymologisches Wörterbuch der deutschen Sprache (2002) says the word Nazi was favored in southern Germany (supposedly from c.1924) among opponents of National Socialism because the nickname Nazi (from the masc. proper name Ignatz, Ger. form of Ignatius) was used colloquially to mean "a foolish person, clumsy or awkward person." Ignatz was a popular name in Catholic Austria, and according to one source in WWI Nazi was a generic name in the German Empire for the soldiers of Austria-Hungary. An older use of Nazi for national-sozial is attested in Ger. from 1903, but EWdS does not think it contributed to the word as applied to Hitler and his followers. The NSDAP for a time attempted to adopt the Nazi designation as what the Germans call a "despite-word," but they gave this up, and the NSDAP is said to have generally avoided the term. Before 1930, party members had been called in Eng. National Socialists, which dates from 1923. The use of Nazi Germany, Nazi regime, etc., was popularized by German exiles abroad. From them, it spread into other languages, and eventually brought back to Germany, after the war. In the USSR, the terms national socialist and Nazi were said to have been forbidden after 1932, presumably to avoid any taint to the good word socialist. Soviet literature refers to fascists.
Everybody has the right to question an information. The funny thing is that we comply with the main motto in this forum which is to Deny Ignorance and we selfs are the first to show the dumbest ignorance ever. Do I question the 6 million figure? YES !!! Do I have the right to do that without being called a denier, a Nazi, a racist. a antijew, antisemitic...blah blah blah? YES and YES again.
Why is saying this acceptable. "Theres no way in hell 1 million Rwandans died over the last 20 years , id put the number closer to, say 600k."
And saying this is not. "The number of jews killed during WW2 is said to be about 6 million, that number seems a bit inflated and I would put the numbers closer to 2.5 to 3 million" (These were just examples)
Here at ATS, some would label that comment as racist, however, in some European countries, that comment is illegal and could land you in prison.
Kr0n0s, did you even read the post about my family? Really, I'd be thrilled if you commented. Or maybe you just don't want to face the facts.
You should also spell correctly if you want to look informed, for one.
Perhaps it's just me, but there is a difference between questioning whether the number killed is accurate and someone questioning whether the Holocaust actually happened.

Can anyone find a thread on ATS where someone has actually denied the holocaust? Like, where they say 'it never happened'? I'm struggling to find an example of this on the board.
Not saying it hasn't happened. I just can't see where it has and we're talking a lot about 'holocaust deniers' here.
