What someone said decades after the fact holds less value than contemporary, particularly when there's been a shift in power. Albert Speer avoided the death penalty. There is incentive there to go along. That doesn't mean he couldn't be telling the truth, but the problem with Holocaust studies is that normal historical procedure is not used. Not only is it not applied, normal procedure is illegal and carries long prison sentences.

The letters from Speer was "recently found" after his death. How do we even know they are authentic, have you seen them, have scientists been allowed to analyse them? Please answer this.

Second, Speer denied knowing about the Holocaust i 1969 directly going against what you claim.

Until you can show clear evidence that these letters are actually authentic, then the 1969 contemporary source must hold more weight.

This example illustrates the problems of refuting denialist claims, usually they're not based on hard factual evidence, but when you dig a little you never seem to find concrete proof. Where are these letters, have they been authenticated and by whom?

Last, even if Himmler wanted to kill all jews, that is not proof of anything, just a statement (if it was said).

You see, that would be "hearsay" and not admissible in court.

Regarding Eichmann, I simply ask for proof of his statements, show me the video of his day in court. Why is it so difficult to get these sources.

I'm not a lawyer, there are exceptions to the hearsay rules in some cases.

Holocaust studies does follow normal historical procedures, reading any of the vast corpus of scholarly books or articles would teach you that.

Albert Speer could claim whatever he wanted to claim. If you look at ex-Nazi memoirs of the time, they ALL deny knowing about the Holocaust. This is a completely separate issue, but most of these Cold War memoirs attempt to allow former Nazis to situate themselves in West German society, or to avoid prosecution. And, Speer's book actually does say he was aware of the high mortality rate among forced laborers and was aware of Auschwitz.

Eichmann's testimony is considered accurate, and your attempts to wave it away as "well, he's tortured, so it's inaccurate" are nonsense. The documents are easily accessible. This is his testimony about Wannsee: http://www.ghwk.de/fileadmin/user_upload...timony.pdf
