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

CLAIM: The incineration fires used to burn bodies in Belzec, Sobibor and Treblinka would have required unfathomable amounts of wood to burn bodies in the numbers that are reported.

RESPONSE: In fact, half of the remains burned in the incineration fires were children and infants and a full two-thirds of all bodies were exhumed remains that had been buried for months, greatly reducing the actual mass that was burned. Therefore the estimates used by deniers to calculate the amount of wood needed were false.
