    She was willing to admit that some Jews may have been killed, but nothing like the six million claimed.

    •  this question of what i term (4+ / 0-)

      'nazi energy' for lack of anything better, is something that i have puzzled over quite a bit.  about a dozen years ago, the nyt ran a series on the persistence of nazism in germany that curled my toes.  the article spoke of people who have secret shrines in hall closets to adolf hitler, who hold secret nazi meetings etc.  it hasn't just 'gone away'. none of this is intended to be an indictment of 'germanism' or anything like that.  but i found it chilling, the persistence of history, and so on.

      holocaust denial is an amazing phenomenon. i can't quite come to grips with the motivation for maintaining such acritical unthinking opinions in the face of such overwhelming evidence.
