title: Holocaust Denial on Trial
Content created by Professor Deborah Lipstadt in conjunction with Maureen MacLaughlin and Dan Leshem.

CLAIM: There are no contemporaneous documents proving the existence of gas vans. Therefore, they did not exist.

RESPONSE: Weckert is wrong. The gas vans did exist. The surviving documentations shows that they were designed and constructed in Berlin in late 1941 and early 1942 and sent to the Chelmno death camp and Einsatzgruppen units in the East to assist in the mass murder of Jews and others.
