The Gerstein Report was Refused At Nuremberg

 

Holocaust deniers say:

The Gerstein report was such a "clumsy forgery" that when the French text of it was presented as evidence at the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg on January 30, 1946 the Tribunal refused to consider it as evidence.1

Paul Rassinier, a French Holocaust denier, claims that after the report was rejected by the court the press picked it up and spread it around the world as a result of which it became accepted as an "unquestionably authentic document." 2 Thereafter, it was used at other trials without question or proper authentification by a court of law.

The facts about the Gerstein Report and the International Military Tribunal

The judges, satisfied that the certificate of authenticity had been overlooked in the morning session, apologized to Dubost and entered it into evidence.3

Conclusion

Rassinier is lying in an attempt to discredit Gerstein’s report as evidence. The judges did not "throw out" Gerstein’s report. Once the supposedly missing certificate was pointed out, it was entered into evidence the same day.
