Killing by numbers

Well, I never!!! How dare they!! Inflated numbers you say?? Nazis - run for the covers!!

It seems that some folks seem to think that the numbers of dead in Dresden was inflated by the Nazis!! This could well be, and of course questioning historical facts should always be allowed. That said, if anyone questions the number of Jews killed in concentration camps they can wind up in jail.

Nice double standard here:

Did Nazis exaggerate death toll in WW2 Dresden air raid?

New Agencies quoted The Times historian Frederick Taylor, as saying in response that the Nazis simply added an extra '0' to the total figure

Good think Frederick Taylor didn't say that about the 6,000,000 figure eh?

Now, I'm not saying that 6,000,000 didn't die, but it does seem odd to me that Auschwitz's numbers declined by 2.5 million upon re-evalutation yet the 6 Million number remained the same. Interesting math, but never mind that since you'll go to jail if you mention it.

Double standards abound.

This may be true and probably is true. The thing that never has added up for me is that if the Jews wanted us to believe in the Holocaust then why would they do this ?

What is the moral difference between 2.5 and 6 million ? Math and morals are incompatible sciences. Lower numbers don't diminish the affect.

If the Jews are putting people away for saying the number was 2.5 instead of 6 million, what other purpose does this serve than to make Jews look bad ?

I agree Doug, even one person killed because of their ethnicity is one too many - no matter what.

That said, I don't understand why all the anxiety about questioning the numbers, really. It really does make one wonder what the heck is going on.

As I've stated before my own family lost many members in Auschwitz and simply due to the war and its ruin run rampage, still I find no problem in discussing the real facts - so why are there laws against doing just that?

Very odd.

When something doesn't add up and we research it, we normally find a propaganda machine and a certain amount of money.

9/11 is a perfect example - it took FBI agents off watching financial institutions and sent them on an adventure in human rights violations looking for terrorists while the bankers played, among lots of other things. There is also the drug trade from Afghanistan and the money from enhanced security measures as well as creating a population more malleable to propaganda in the future.

The motivation for screwing around with Holocaust numbers is unclear. Of course they knew how many people died after the war - they don't have to count heads to know this. Its in government immigration records all over the world + we have actuaries to figure this out.

Who benefits ? Who makes money from this ?

Maybe its a way of kicking us around a bit, letting us know who's boss and training us to accept more government propaganda.
