Holocaust Denial

Holocaust denial is nothing new, and there are multiple groups on Facebook dedicated to it.  It is considered anti-Semitic and is illegal in some countries.

Here's one that claims, "Within five minutes, any intelligent, open-minded person can be convinced that the Holocaust gassings of World War II are a profitable hoax."  Well, if by "intelligent, open-minded person," they mean "bigoted conspiracy theorist," maybe so.

One of the comments accuses "the Jews" of "pushing Holocaust propaganda."

This group manages to get even more obviously offensive and anti-Semitic than the last one, which is saying a lot.

Let's check out their profile pictures.  The first one says, "A Journal of Satire."  Because what could lend itself better to satire than ummmm... genocide?

Since the offensive premise of the cartoon below apparently isn't enough, they also make the characters have big noses.

The one below throws in an obvious racial slur.

And we have another cariacature of a stereotypical Jew with a large nose.  Some of the "Holocaust revisionists" pretend to not be anti-Semitic.  Groups like this don't even bother.

Here's another obviously anti-Semitic one, with lots of allusion to Jewish conspiracies, and a link to a site called ""

With the cariacatures of Jewish people, these Holocaust denial cartoons don't even pretend not to be anti-Semitic.

Here's a new one: the claim that most of the Jewish deaths during the Holocaust were actually the Allies' fault.
