The pictures above depict the old and the new memorial plaque for the victims of the former concentration camp in Auschwitz. In 1995, the Polish authorities under President Lech Walesa officially reduced the number of victims from four to one and a half million, without this important change being taken into account by Holocaust believers.

The numbers of alleged Jewish victims have always wildly varied from scholar to scholar, from as high as 9 million in the French documentary Night and Fog, which has been shown to millions of students woldwide, to as low as 30,000 (out of a total of 69,000) in the official death books. But no matter how high or low the number of victims in the Auschwitz camps, most Holocaust scholars arrive at the same magic six million figure.
Some revisionists suspect that this has more to do with an old Jewish myth according to which six million Jews have to die before the Jewish people can return to Israel. They also point out that claims similar to the ones made after WWII were made at the end of WWI, suggesting that it is more of a symbolic religious figure. Some revisionists go even as far as suggesting the number has to do with the 'Satanic' number 666, referring to allegations of a disproportionally strong Jewish element in Satanic cults.
Our friends over at Nizkor.org, the only Holocaust believers who even bother trying to have something remotely resemblant of a rational debate with revisionists - instead of simply resorting to all sorts of insults or calling for the Kosher Inquisition to punish the heretics with the full force of the law - are struggling to 'debunk' the problem of the shrinking number of Auschwitz victims.
Their solution is to insist that most Holocaust scholars always quoted a number of 2.5 million Auschwitz victims, not four million, which of course still leaves us with a not insignificant discrepancy of one million, which isn't accounted for in the overall six million figure. Nizkor also takes objection to the claims of revisionists that they are being hounded down by some kind of 'Thought Police' if they dare to doubt the official numbers. I suggest they talk to the likes of Germar Rudolf and Ernst Zuendel, who are currently imprisoned in Germany for exactly that 'thought crime', as many thousands before them, for daring to challenge the official narrative.
Mind you, Nizkor isn't any better at 'debunking' any of the other revisionist arguments, and there are hundreds of them. Their technique is the same as that of Popular Mechanics, the government funded 'independent' 9-11 Truth 'debunkers'. They usually pick some minor detail in the revisionist argument and refute it, implying the entire argument of the scholar was flaud. What both Nizkor and Popular Mechanics lack in reasoning, they make up by media and financial support, although some purists in the Holcoaust believer crowd argue that it was too risky even try to debate with 'deniers'. Maybe they are worried that anyone who bothers to think through the arguments on both sides, might come to an undesired result.
Which brings me to the important question why we must be able to freely discuss and research whether or not Nazi Germany had a secret plan to kill all European Jews, and killed as many as four, five or six million Jews in chemical slaughter-houses. The answer is because it makes a big difference, today more than ever, especially to the Palestinian and the German people. To the Palestinians, because the Holocaust is being abused by Zionists as a justification for the creation and continued existence of a Jews-only state in Palestine, and to the Germans, because of the possibility that they might have been ashamed and financially burdened for a crime that never happened. Both consequences are so dire that they cannot simply be ignored for the sake of political convenience or the sensitivities of a minority. And then there was also something called 'Freedom of Expression'. It's supposed to be an inalienable human right.
 The main cause of death of the officially recorded 30,000 was typphus, a disease camp authorities desperately tried to combat through the use of the infamous Zyklon B gas, a defumigant used to kill head lice in prisoner uniforms. Traces of that substance can still be found today in the rooms used for that purpose, but not in the much bigger rooms allegedly used to gas prisoners.
 The Holocaust is widely regarded as the most effective Zionist argument for the creation of a Jewish state, apart from the "historic" claim of a Jewish homeland in Palestine, which is obviously nonsense, not only because of the 1900 years time difference, but also because of the fact that 90% of modern Jews are the descendants of ethnic Turks from Mongolia who converted to Judaism a couple of centuries after invading, raping and pillaging Europe as part of Attila's hordes, and their local Germanic rape victims.
