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

CLAIM: If the design for the incineration grills had been similar to a Hindu funeral pyre that would have been more efficient because the remains rest directly on the wood because "as the wood sinks so does the body, the body staying close to the wood."

RESPONSE: In fact, Hindu funeral pyres are highly inefficient for the cremation of just one body, and a completely impractical model for incinerating thousands of bodies.
