How Will Ahmadinejad Deny This?
Millions of records of Hitler's Final Solution are soon to be released.

When the Allies were liberating Europe, they came across lots and lots and lots of records of the Holocaust. This is undeniable, irrefutable proof of the horrors visited upon people at the concentration camps.

All of these documents were sent to one central location, a place called Bad Arolsen, where they were collated, compiled, and filed away from the public's view. Apparently those are the kinds of things people don't like to be reminded of. Not dissimilar to the images, recorded live, of planes crashing and towers falling, but I digress.

Anyway, the sheer volume of evidence will be difficult for our favorite mad man, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to deny:

The storerooms are immense: 16 miles of shelves holding the stories of 17 million victims – not only Jews, but slave laborers, political prisoners and homosexuals. To open the files is to see the Holocaust staring back like it was yesterday: strange pink Gestapo arrest warrants as lethal as a death sentence, jewelry lost as freedom ended at the gates of an extermination camp. Time stopped here in 1945.


But most of the names here are of unknown people. While the Nazis did not write down the names of those executed in the gas chambers at places like Auschwitz, they did keep detailed records of millions of others who died in the camps. Their names are listed in notebooks labeled “Totenbuch,” which means “death book.” The names are written here, single-spaced, in meticulous handwriting.

"Here we see the cause of death: executed. And you can see, every two minutes they shot one prisoner," Jost explains.

"So they shot a prisoner every two minutes for a little over an hour and a half?" Pelley asks.

"Yes. Now look at the date: it’s the 20th of April. That was Adolf Hitler’s birthday. And this was a birthday present, a gift for the Führer. That’s the bureaucracy of the devil," Jost says.


It goes on from there with the reactions from the first 3 survivors to get a good look. It's hard to deny the survivors too.

Of course, Ahmadinejad is very creative. I'm sure he'll find a way to deny 16 miles of evidence.

Read the whole thing.
