Title says it all. How can they argue against a whole ton load of evidence? I'm not Jewish, just a curious person.

Because it's man's will to argue. Many believe that if they didn't see it for themselves, it never happened.

There's people that believe that the moon landing was a hoax, too. Some people have a hard time believing that complex events really occurred.

They still have a whole ton of evidence. Auschwitz is still there today. They can go see it for themselves. and by saying the Holocaust never happened, it's like saying 9/11 didn't happen.

They can't believe what humans can do. They don't wish to believe what humans can do. They don't wish to think about it means about the nature of mankind.

Most of those who don't believe in the holocaust are antisemitic. Whole governments such as Iran and Egypt don't recognize it. They're blinded so much by hatred they don't want to believe their enemy is a victim so they concoct stories that allow them to continue their hatred.

The human mind is developed based on environment: how, where, when, who. If someone grew up thinking certain things they've never seen, they believe it never happened, it is because they grew up as a "critic" or a "hypocrite". Some people deny actual fact because they never witnessed it and they grew up being told that whatever you hear, but you've never seen is fake. It's very common because some people's minds, when subjected to depressing content, will shut away from the content and will force the person to deny their beliefs. Some people believe certain things never happened because of sides. They take sides and deny anything because they protect and stay loyal to their country, leader, etc. Many people accept facts due to open minds. The type of people mentioned are closed minded and only accept facts from people they trust. So the people who deny the evidence of the Holocaust deny it because they shut off from the depressing content, stay loyal to their leaders or etc, or are taught to never believe anything unless first hand source. So this probably answers your question! :)

Sometimes, no matter the situation, you just gotta look up to God, and laugh at your situation! :) ~Me! ^_^

In a word: Hatred

My earlier post was a reminder that hatred for minorities in the early 1930's became a state-sponsored and systematic effort to wipe out a number of minorities - European Jews, Roma and Sinti gypsy tribes, Jehovah’s Witnesses, disabled Poles, homosexuals, Soviet prisoners of war, and political dissidents.

Hatred for others is very much alive and well today. Denial of and ignoring historic events is a convenient way to distance oneself from the uncomfortable thought that had I lived then and there, would I have been one of the victims or one of the perpetrators?

“There are ominous patterns in human rights abuses these days, grimly reminiscent of the dark days of the 1930s when similar activities foreshadowed the Holocaust,” says Irwin Cotler, a McGill University law professor and cochairman of the Canadian Helsinki Watch Group, according to The Toronto Star. He says that a study conducted in 41 countries by the Helsinki Federation for Human Rights highlights a clear danger signal—a strong growth in hate speech against minorities. Often in the form of hatemongering by broadcasters and state publications, it results in persecution of the minorities. Said Cotler concerning the trend: “This is a lesson of the Second World War that we have not learned.” Another forgotten lesson, he said, is “the crime of indifference, the conspiracy of silence.

Well those who never have seen the holocaust or heard of it, couldn't possibly believe in it. That is probably the case for most people who don't believe in it. Now this was a horrible time for the Jews and they deserve every bodies respect, they all need to be taken seriously. I'm actually a Catholic, but I descended from Jews on my fathers side. I guess you could show them some films or books, I would suggest the Book and movie "Anne Frank" I just read it in school for Literature and Aced the test. But the book show's how normal kids just like Anne were taken to Camps every day along with thousands of others and most of them died there. Just imagine if this war was successful for the Germans we may all be in those camps if we didn't stop it right than and there.

The fact that people would ignore such a terrible thing is horrid. I have friends and family who are Jews and have family that lost loved ones because of it! It's obvious it happened.

Their are many reasons why someone would defy the facts of the holocaust, some just simply can't handle that such a horrible thing happened to so many, some simply wonder if the holocaust was real how come no one immediately stopped it. It's easy to simply want to ignore things, or believe out of sight, out of mind.

In my own views...
Hitler came to power saying d turn the country (Germany) around, and thus gained a large amount of power, by mobilizing Germany, and then boosting the economy. He then began invading other countries (Poland, France, Belgium) saying that Germany needed more space to live and prosper. By the time people realized that he was leading them into a war, he had become an oppressor (forcing people to do as he says), and put down any people who said otherwise. Herman Goering (the commander of the Luftwaffe) put forth his final solution, of genocide of not only Jewish, but Crippled people, lepers, gypsys, and other people. Most people shielded their eyes from this, believing Hitler to be great still, and ignored it. Their insistence carried on, even in face of brutal facts to the contrary.
Leave the regrets of yesterday behind, and sail unto tomorrow.
