    There is no such thing as 'objective research' on the Holocaust. If you question even an iota of it you are instantly labelled a 'Holocaust Denier' taken to court, defamed, denied legal counsel (esp. in Germany), possibly threatened with prison, loss of employmenty, incomr, reputation, home, family etc. Every sdingle aspect of the 'H' has become as dogmatic as the Church in medieval Christendom. It is unassailable, and thus becomes historically self-destructive. Apparently the Auschwitz Museum reduced the number of alleged killed there from 3 million, to 1.5 million as I understand it... This was not considered at all newsworthy... Some more controversial claims around the figure of 6 million lay it at Stalin's door, or say it was used as a 'compensation figure' against the Germans, or was used by the post-war Zionist movement to ensure support for the nascent Jewish state. Anyonme investigating these claims can be pilloried as a 'Holocaust denier'. In fact the Holocausrt is probably the only area of human interest where every principle of freedom of speech, thought and questioning supposedly held in such high regard in the West is systematically and ruthlessly excluded. Any comparisons say to the Ukrainian Holodomor or the Native American tragedy have to be instantky retracted and apologised for. So it is suprising to find even Haaretz bringing it up albeit in conformist and attenuated fashion. Why is this?
