Image result for straw man argument

So now Mr Wear repeats the same old rubbish he printed months ago. He seems to think that by finding fault with the likes of Viktor Frankl, Elie Wiesel and Simon Wiesenthal he can somehow bring the whole of the Holocaust crashing down to its knees.

The problem for Mr Wear us that none of these men were actually directly involved in the Final Solution. None were Sonderkommandos. None had anything to do with gassings nor the mass shootings in occupied USSR. None of these men have been used by historians as direct witnesses to gassings or mass shootings by the Einsatzgruppen. Even if these men had deliberately lied, it would make no difference to the historiography of the Holocaust.

Mr Wear is simply building a giant straw man.
