i have been doing some research on Holocaust revisionists and the claims that they make.
one of the most interesting revisionists i have found to be is (or, more appropriately, WAS) David Cole. i find it strange that he has not been
discussed here at ATS, seeing how his case was so interesting. or at least I think so.
he shot several hours of footage at Auschwitz, which includes interviews with tour guides and a very interesting one with Franciszek Piper, author of
Auschwitz : How Many Perished Jews, Poles, Gypsies...
, one of the works responsible for the lowering of the Auschwitz camp number of victims
from 4 million to 1,1 million.
i understand that now Mr. David Cole is no longer claiming to be revisionist.
apparently the JDL (Jewish Defense League) has issued some pretty condemning statements in regard to Mr. Cole from 1992, the year of when he shot the
Auschwitz footage, to 1998, when apparently he retracted everything he has said on the matter. which i found very strange seeing how his main message
was that there should be the possibility for review, and not that everything he claimed was truth carved in stone.
one of the statements issued by the JDL apparently included the following statement: He has managed to stir the gullible masses with hatred, lies
and deception. Just like a low-lying snake that slithers from dark place to dark place, he spreads his venom to innocent victims.
. I don't want
to sound righteous, but a statement such as this is quite hateful. especially considering that Mr. Cole at no point uses hateful terms in his footage,
such as 'snake' or 'venom'. but I guess we should be used to Jews being labeled as self-haters when they don't agree with the wide-held
consensus, such as was the later case of Judge Goldstone.
i understand that Mr. Franciszek Piper has also come to the conclusion, in retrospect, that David Cole is a nazzi.

Piper on David Cole
if you haven't seen the footage by Mr. Cole I recommend that you do, as it's quite intriguing and he brings up some very good points, well grounded
one more thing... i hope that this thread will not become a bash-zone as this footage is in no way a condemnation of the Jewish people or Judaism.
oh, and for the record, no, I am not an anti-semite, KKK member, or from Montana.
here's the footage:
