Holocaust Denial

Demographics, Testimonies and Ideologies

John C. Zimmerman

Zimmerman's work is the only book that comprehensively examines the underlying arguments of Holocaust denial. He goes into great depth on the actual arguments that deniers use. Holocaust Denial examines their methodology, use of sources and reasoning process. Historians have been very reluctant to examine denier arguments because they do not want to draw attention to them. But this movement is gaining ground in Europe and Canada, and will only become stronger as the World War II generation passes away. This book will debunk all of the denier arguments. Zimmerman will finally provide the reader who is interested in the actual arguments of denial a means to evaluate their legitimacy. The true value of this book will be realized when the last of that generation is gone. This book is of value to historians and Holocaust scholars, as well as anyone interested in the Holocaust and the denial movement. « less more »
