DEBATING THE HOLOCAUST

There can be no denying the Holocaust of the mid-twentieth century:  it was called World War II.  Roughly 50 to 60 million people died worldwide—about 70 percent of whom were civilians.[1]  They died from a variety of causes including guns, bombs, fire, disease, exposure, starvation, and chemical toxins.  Within this greater Holocaust there existed many lesser holocausts:  the Allied fire-bombings of Dresden, Hamburg, and Cologne; the killing of hundreds of thousands of German soldiers and civilians, by the victorious Allies, after the formal end of the war; the US nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which incinerated 170,000 women, children, and elderly; and the Jewish Holocaust of Nazi Germany.  It is this last Holocaust which has been the topic of heated debate over the years.  It is this Holocaust that I address in this book.
