The Holocaust was a hoax
Debate Rounds (4)
During the time that the events of the Holocaust were allegedly unraveling a huge Typhus pandemic began to spread. Accompanied with increased destruction of supply lines leading towards the camps the Germans had no choice but to pull out. In fact, It is quite likely that the only difference between camps for Japanese Americans and Jewish Germans was the fact that the German camps were in a war torn country and thus couldn't be properly supplied.
In regards to the exaggeration of numbers of dead Jews it is interesting to note that estimated value of 6,000,000 dead showed up in previous documents prior to the Holocaust. Either with 6,000,000 Jews being homeless or 6,000,000 being discriminated. In fact the value of 6,000,000 is key to a Talmudic prophecy that claims that the state of Israel can only be formed after 6,000,000 Jews disappear.
I disagree. I think that since the Holocaust was key for the creation of Israel it is important to mention it. Now onto your other argument that you made in regards to the victims going through the same events. Many Holocaust survivors do make similar claims but there are many details that are different from person to person and as a result create many discrepancies.
Often times rumors of gassings and ovens for mass burning of bodies are created either due to fear or certain propaganda goals. For example the ovens used in Auschwitz take roughly one day to burn a human body. In order to meet the estimated number of burned inside they would need to cremate an estimated 3,000 a day with only several hundred ovens. Additionally, none of the gassing chambers have the proper infrastructure to quickly remove Zyklon B in a timely fashion. In fact witht the Typhus pandemic the "gassing chambers" could have been used to properly sanitize clothes.
I do not argue that Jews were not discriminated and abused ,as was the case with Anne Frank, but rather that the events peraining to the Holocaust were largely falsified.

Reasons for voting decision: Both sides forfeited, negating conduct. For arguments, this was a close one; honestly Con's rebuttals left much to be desired. That said, Pro's case was completely without any actual evidence for a holocaust "hoax". He claims there are "discrepancies" in witness accounts, but doesn't give any. By conceding the existence of witnesses, he somewhat makes Con's case--there are witnesses alleging the Holocaust happened. Pro's only argument against these witnesses is unstated "discrepancies". That seems very insufficient to fulfill his BoP in regards to the motion--and I do see the BoP as resting wholly on Pro. As always, happy to clarify this RFD. To both sides: This is about a historical fact (or non-fact, depending on your side). You both should have actually had evidence ins upport of your contentions. Neither of you offered any--you both just offered speculation. The only reason IMHO Con won was on the eyewitness point, with the help of the BoP.
