declared 6 million number to be symbolic of the Jewish destiny. First lots of ppl were claimed jews,but they weren't (yad vashem)+ google title:"The Number 6,000,000 Before The Nuremberg Trials Began"this number came up first in the PRESS in 1900,the word holocaust in 1919!In the NYT May 31, 1936, there was an article about a group petitioning Great Britain to allow Jews fleeing “the European holocaust” to take refuge in Palestine. These two articles may well be among the earliest documented use of the term “holocaust” in this context; the U.S. Holocaust Museum cites the earliest use as 1941.Or: NYT,November1st,1905: "From 1800 to 1902 he caused 6,000,000 Jewish families to be expelled from Russia", and more texts like that!!Despite new info on the subject some ppl prefer the lies since they fear that the lower numbers and the lack of specific evidence of the "industry"will diminish ppl deaths!But they are wrong,it is those ppl who try to inflate the number that slander the memory of the dead!(for some here the higher number the better for the holocaust,sic!)
