Holocaust | What is Holocaust denial? – Projet ALADIN

| November 19, 2017

Holocaust denial is the belief that the Holocaust did not occur as it is described by mainstream historiography. Key elements of this belief are the explicit or implicit rejection that, in the Holocaust: In addition, most Holocaust denial implies, or openly states, that the current mainstream understanding of the Holocaust is the result of a deliberate Jewish conspiracy created to advance the interest of Jews at the expense of other nations. Most historians and scholars reject Holocaust denial as “grounded in hatred, rather than any accepted standards of assertion, evidence, and truth” and a “pseudoscience” that “rejects the entire foundation of historical evidence,” instead motivated by an anti-Semitic ideology.
