Holocaust Deniers’ve Got NOTHIN now, Bitches! (AKA This Almost Makes Me as Happy as Obama’s Being Elected)

A recent discovery in a Berlin flat indicates that the Third Reich had blueprints for the gas chambers (later constructed in Auschwitz-Birkenau) long before the major effects of the Nuremberg laws took place. In fact, the blueprints of the gas chambers are dated to before the Wannsee Conference of January 1942 – which only furthers the argument that the Nazis had intended to systematically exterminate the 11 million Jews, Soviets, mentally disabled persons, Gypsies, and homosexuals/Catholics* who were victims of the concentration camp system of Nazi Germany. (*i group gays & catholics for no other reason than their being a smaller contingency of the total number of victims during WWII in the KL’s. however, i do acknowlege the wealth of comedic potential there is in this juxtaposition…)

As a big nerd, guys, this is SO GREAT!!! Working in the academic publications department of the USHMM got me super into this stuff; it is so beautiful to see that they have discovered primary sources that could eventually contribute to the dissolution (or at least weakening) of the Holocaust denial following there is in this country and around the world. The minutes from the Wannsee Conference are meager at best, and those are some of the best pieces of evidence the world has showing that the Nazis intentionally exterminated the Jews & others in a systematic manner. These blueprints are critical to the academic world of genocide studies because one of the major arguments deniers use against the existence of the Holocaust involves the rubble that remains at the sites of places such as Auschwitz, Birkenau et cetera, as the modern day evidence shows no structural indication that the buildings that the Nazis destroyed once the Allies invaded had the infrastructure to be gas chambers. (as an aside, why the fuck would the nazis totally bomb the shit out of buildings on the sites of labor camps which, at the time of wwii, were relatively kosher (excuse my word choice) if they weren’t guilty of some horrible human rights violation inside said buildings? whatever.)

With these new blueprints, it can be ascertained once and for all that the buildings that once stood in specifically Birkenau, but also in camps like Treblinka and so many others whose gassing chambers & creamatoria were indeed integral parts of death camps, not labor camps.

My reaction to this discovery is two-fold:

1. PHEW/HOORAY!

2.

    To borrow a phrase from 1995 (or whenever, if ever, this was cool):

    Oh, and I guess a related question:

    Laws banning denials of the Holocaust: Kosher or no?

    I say no, but am interested in what others have to say.
