Why do people still deny that the Holocaust happened?

They choose to believe in conspiracy theories or are just plain uneducated.

Some people think the victims invented it to get sympathy or special favors, but they are the ones who have been fooled by the real haters. The truth is that some people don't care who was hurt, or rejoice in the pain inflicted on people they hate; they want people to forget it so they can go on hating the people who were targets of the Nazis. It was not just the Jewish people they hated and persecuted. Anybody handicapped or mentally ill, anybody slightly deformed, like birth defects, anybody who looked too dark skinned or too different, like the Asians or Pacific Islanders. And anybody who did not hold to the same prejudices as them were targeted as well. So do not be afraid to dislike someone who does not believe in the Holocaust. They do not just hate people of the Jewish faith. They hate anybody not like them.

They even had a concentration camp for American soldiers. Some of them are still alive. I watched a special about the Holocaust the other day. The pictures were awful. How can you not believe with all the photograhs and movies? The Jews suffered greatly.

You are correct. It was the most horrific time and place in history, but was also rivaled by Stalin and Lennon for sheer cruelty if not numbers.

@Cin, the big difference between Hitler's Holocaust and the Millions Stalin and Lennin Murdered, Killed and let die; is the manner in which the Nazi regime approached this Mass killing. Hitler and his followers Planned and Created a Systematic, organized System aimed at absolute annihilation of a particular 'Race'. In todays UN Charter it is called "Genocide". Yes, others peoples got caught up in their bloodlust and many were Murdered, even before the Master Plan involving Jews; the Nazi's daily exterminated any who had mental or physical "abnormalities" all over Germany. That practice arroused protest within Germany from prominent Religious and Political leaders who were silenced through outright torture or threars to family members and then became a part of The Holocaust. Stalin and Lennin however, randomly killed anyone percieved as "against them", used their own people as 'Fodder' on front lines and generaly showed an absolute disregard for Live per se.. The end result was untold deaths in both instances, yet what stands out in The Holocaust as I mentioned was the sheer Orginazed/Systemic methodology.

I am very aware of the difference, my dear. I only felt that the horror of both were abominable. Are you aware that China seems to be killing their excess population by ignoring the cancer caused by rampant pollution from their industries and autos? They have known, but don't give a d---. Those poor people will die / and have for some time been dying / slow, painful deaths from inside. Genocide is horrific where ever and when ever it happens. This does not lessen in any way our sympathy for the suffering that happened and loss felt by families that we are aware of from history. But it should not keep happening again, and again, and again.
Report as
Agree with you that Genocide and the mass loss of live under any circumstances is deprolable, and was merely attempting to point out the systematic manner in which the Nazi's went about it. And yes, China has no interest in cleaning up and thereby slowing down their concerted push to become a major leader in the world, regardless the cost to their population. We do have to face the facts that we , along with other Western Nations did and do much the same in and outside our borders.

Buy them a ticket to the Holocaust Museum.
I think that'll change their minds.

Most of those who do not believe The Holocaust happened would likely just call that a made up lie also, it just does not suit their particular hatred, conspiracy or ignorance to believe otherwise, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

Maybe because they don't want to believe it happened.

But yet, I don't understand how someone can say it didn't happen when there is proof, boatloads of proof, there are survivors!

Sadly, even survivors with tatood numbers on their bodies get shouted down as being liars, as I witnessed personally once too often at Readings held by Survivors.

There are various reasons people do not want to believe The Holocaust happened.
For many it does not suit their arguments for the Hatred they feel towards the Jews in particular, and any who do not suit their definition of a "Perfect Homogenous" Race.
Other refuse to believe out of a misplaced feeling of guilt; to them it could not have happened because Humanity would not have let it, therefore it must be a lie.
Some see it as merely a grand Hoax created by The Jewish people and their allies to justify the existence of Israel.
While still others say it didn't without really examining their reasoning; they do so merely as followers echo-ing ignorance.

Correct in everything except the race. Not Perfect Homogeneous, but Perfect Superior. They mistakenly believe they are directly descended from the perfect humans Adam and Eve. But that race does not exist, and never did. The "Blonde, blue eyed, Adonis and his subservient womb carrier of the same features are an amalgam of others according to genetic studies.
Report as
Very true, Cin. We know that their contotorted view is not based on the reality shown through genetics, but they dont, and even if some do; it wouldn't suit their purpose to admit such!
