The so called Holocaust Myth is a slogan that claims that the Holocaust, the murder of Jews by the Nazis, never occurred or was exaggerated. Holocaust Myth is a new name for an older ideological idea: "Holocaust denial"
Of course, the actual Holocaust is well documented. At least six million Jews were killed in the Holocaust by the Nazis and their willing helpers.
However, a great "ideology" has developed around creating a myth about the Holocaust Myth. The only people interested in propagating the "Holocaust Myth" slogan are anti-Zionists and anti-Semites.
The perpetrators include both anti-Semites and Jewish anti-Zionists. Norman Finklestein is one of the many exponents of the Holocaust Myth Myth. In his version it is the Holocaust Industry.
Some examples of Web sites and their rhetoric regarding the Holocaust Myth issue are given below, to give you an idea of the problem. (with misspellings as is)
1. Holocaust Myth No difference between killing in war and murder of civilians in your own country
The Modern Myth of the Holocaust
The myth which I here dispute is not that the Holocaust (so-called with capital H) ever happened, but that it was a unique event...
2. Holocaust Myth: Ordinary Anti-Semitism
Jews are pretty good liars most of the time, but they tell so many lies they are bound to trip themselves up sometimes. Their exaggerations, half-truths, and outright inventions about the so- called "Holocaust," easily the most lied-about topic ever, are a good example.
The "Holocaust" myth, as mentioned above, is a structure built of lies, exaggerations, and half- truths.....
3. Holocaust Myth: Having it both ways
Eric Zundel wants to claim that the Holocaust didn't happen at all and also that it was exaggerated.
"Holocaust Myth 101"
PART II - There is no proof that the Holocaust, as depicted by the Holocaust Promotion Lobby and the highly politicized Hollywood industry, actually occurred.
PART III - The numbers of "Holocaust" victims are irresponsibly exaggerated.
4. Holocaust Myth: Having it both ways
Yes, the Holocaust happened, and no it never happened. Is the Holocaust Myth a myth or not?
2 - Having stated the previous, it is therefore obvious that Revisionists do not "deny" the Jewish Holocaust as their critics claim.
4 - Contrary to Holocaust Mythology there was no attempt by Nazis, or anyone else, to exterminate the Jews....
5 - ....The linch-pin in this argument is simply that there were no gas chambers. None. Zero. Nada.
Holocaust Myth and Free Speech
Codoh is an all-purpose racist Web site, promoting the Holocaust Myth, anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism.
On campus, the free speech issue is this: Should college students be granted the rights of adults and allowed free access to Revisionist scholarship on the Holocaust...?
For half a century now historians have told us that during World War II the Nazis had a policy to exterminate the Jews of Europe, along with homosexuals and Gypsies. We are told that millions were "gassed" at German camps such as Auschwitz and Treblinka....
.... I urge you to consider whether any of the individuals or institutions that have contributed to the perpetuation of the debasing "human soap" hoax deserve to be believed about anything they say about the "Holocaust."
Holocaust Myth Mythology promoted by Syrian Government:
February 1, 2000
A Syrian government newspaper accused Israel on Monday of creating "the myth of the Holocaust," enraging Israeli leaders who warned that the tirade could hinder efforts at forging peace between the two arch-foes.
The official newspaper Tishrin accused the Jewish state of using the "myth" of the murder of millions of Jews by the Nazis during the Second World War to "blackmail and terrorize politicians and intellectuals around the world."
Holocaust Myth Mythology promoted by Iranian government
TEHRAN, Dec. 14, 2005

Holocaust Myth: Muslim Brotherhood
Al-Jazeera, Dec. 24, 2005

Holocaust Myth Mythology encourages more Holocaust Revisionism
The Holocaust as Sacred Myth and Ideology:
Final Reflections in the Wake of the Iran Holocaust Conference
By Paul Grubach © 2007
I. The Specter
A specter is haunting Western Civilization. It is the specter of Holocaust revisionism. The power elites of Europe, the United States and beyond have entered into holy alliance to exorcise this specter: Pope and US President, British and Canadian Prime Minister, French and Russian Foreign Ministers, German Chancellor and Justice Minister, international Zionism and the Western mass media. The list goes on and on.
Holocaust Myth promoted by Palestinian authority
From a Palestinian TV program:
"Moderator: It is well-known that every year the Jews exaggerate what the Nazis did to them. They claim there were 6 million killed, but precise scientific research demonstrates that there were no more than 400,000. Has the complex which the Jews have as a result of the Nazis' actions created within them psychological burdens which they are now releasing against the Palestinians?
Al-Agha: ...They have profited materially, spiritually, politically and economically from the talk about the Nazi killings. This investment is favorable to them and they view it as a profitable activity so they inflate the number of victims all the time. In another ten years, I do not know what number they will reach.... In my opinion, it is an investment, and as you know, when it comes to economics and investments, the Jews have been very experienced ever since the days of the Merchant of Venice."
