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

CLAIM: Gerstein’s report is so filled with absurdities and impossibilities that the entire report must be dismissed as a fabrication.

RESPONSE: The Holocaust deniers are desperate to discredit Gerstein’s account, so they hammer away at any minor points they can find so they can claim it must be discarded as incredible. But Gerstein’s story is remarkably consistent across all the versions that are known to be in his own hand when it dealt with things he saw with his own eyes: the mass gassing he observed at Belzec.
