by Arthur R. Butz
"The Hoax of the Twentieth Century" is an important book that should be read by every teacher mandated by the state laws to teach about this legend. It effectively makes the case that the industrialized extermination of Jews by gassing never happened.
When the book was first published in 1976, the canonical story was that gassings even occurred in concentration camps, such as Dachau and Buchenwald in Germany. Nowadays, of course, no historian believes this to be true, not even those at Vad Yashem in Israel. Butz is partly responsible for this revision of the accepted story as well as for discrediting the tales of soap, lampshades and the "6 million."
The scope and thoroughness with which Butz has researched this important historical question is impressive enough that its sale has actually been banned in several countries. It has convincing arguments that are much maligned by people who have never read it, and by the censors who just wish it would go away. It has tables, maps, graphs, photographs, references and full quotations from hard to obtain documents. It uses the hard logic of an engineer to arrive at the truth, not the emotional hysteria of the propagandists who are more interested in the loot of the reparations, support for Israel, and all the pleasures that come with hornswoggling the gullible. --This text refers to the Paperback edition - reader
