This paper strongly confronts the recent theories of Holocaust denial by discussing the anti-Semitic history of Europe and giving the statistics proving the number of Jews erased following World War II in Europe. First, the paper examines the philosophical influences of Adolph Hitler. Then, the actual suffering of the Jews during the Holocaust is detailed, from the death camps to those who were used for human experiments. Other sources of proof regarding the Holocaust are analyzed, such as "Anne Frank's Diary," photographs and famous speeches made by Nazi officials. The author concludes that there is considerable evidence indicating the truth behind the Holocaust and that claims made by deniers are based on their own anti-Semitism and have no historical or factual evidence corroborating them.
From the Paper:"Those who lived were used as subjects for human experiments. The most notorious of these physicians was Dr. Josef Mengele, who worked in Auschwitz. His experiments included placing subjects in pressure chambers, testing drugs on them, freezing them, attempting to change eye color by injecting chemicals into children's eyes and various amputations and other brutal surgeries (The Holocaust Chronicles: A History in Words and Pictures). One of Mengele's infamous experiments included working with twins. He sewed a pair of four year old twins together, back to front like Siamese twins and left them like that. Their wounds were infected and oozing pus. They screamed day and night till their parents finally managed to get their hands on some morphine and killed their own children in order to put them out of their misery (The world must know: The history of the Holocaust as told in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum). Death was a fate far better than what those who lived at Auschwitz endured."
