              Der Holocaust: Die Argumente
                

              Der Holocaust: Die Argumente (Trade Paperback / Paperback, 3rd edition)

              Der Holocaust, das ist die systematisch geplante und industriell durchgefuhrte Ausrottung von 6 Millionen Juden Europas durch Deutschlands Nazi-Schergen wahrend des Zweiten Weltkriegs. Das jedenfalls halten fast alle Menschen fur wahr. Wer zweifelt, wird in allen deutschsprachige...n Landern mit mehrjahrigen Freiheitsstrafen bedroht. Doch wer versucht, seine Meinung mit Strafgesetzen anderen aufzuzwingen, setzt sich dem Verdacht aus, dass ihm die Argumente ausgegangen sind und dass er sich nur noch mit Gewalt verteidigen kann. Das vorliegende Buch predigt nicht Gewalt gegen Andersdenkende, sondern argumentiert. Es fuhrt den Leser in die wichtigsten Aspekte dessen ein, was heute mit dem Begriff Holocaust umfasst wird, und beleuchtet sie kritisch. Es zeichnet die Revisionen nach, die von der offiziellen Geschichtsschreibung am Geschichtsbild vorgenommen wurden. Darunter fallen zum Beispiel die wiederholten und bisweilen drastischen Verringerungen der behaupteten Opferzahlen vieler Konzentrationslager des Dritten Reiches sowie das stillschweigende Ubergehen absurder Totungsmethoden, die von vielen Zeugen behauptet wurden. Daruber hinaus wird auch darauf hingewiesen, wo und aus welchen triftigen Grunden noch mit weiteren mitunter radikalen Revisionen am gegenwartigen Geschichtsbild zu rechnen ist. Das Gegenuberstellen von Argumenten und Gegenargumenten ermoglicht es dem kritischen Leser, sich selber eine Meinung zu bilden. Hinweise auf Quellen und weiterfuhrende Literatur erlauben es ihm, sich auf Wunsch tiefer in die Materie einzuarbeiten. Mit knapp uber 100 Seiten ist dies eine griffige und doch umfassende Einfuhrung in eine brandheisse Materie. Mit einem Vorwort von Jurgen Graf.
