World War II and the Holocaust were a particularly dark chapter in human history. As in every collective trauma, false rumors and fabricated myths accompanied the historical facts of both the heroes and villains. Many of the phony stories are spread by people with vested interests, trying to clear their names or tarnish their enemies.
