I agree that people should not accept a populist view of history. By populist I mean the accepted or politically correct view of history. That is why we are required to study history, or used to be. Many view Hitler as satan incarnate who climbed out of hell and found his way to Germany to kill all the Jews. Such a view is of course false. He was a product of his time. That satan used and fueled the anti-semitism of that day, no doubt. And if you ever have seen any of Hitler's speeches, which most have, he certainly seems possessed at times of another spirit.I think the more people studied for themselves , and held their own opinion the world would be a better place, rather than believing the History they are taught to believe. I have nothing else to add, I have made my opinion clear.
I too think if any is concerned over the question of the holocaust they should do their own study. That means, don't just listen to a video presentation. Go and check the references that are given. The holocaust happened at a time when records were kept on everything. Even though many were destroyed by the Nazi's to try and hide their responsibility, they didn't get them all.
The Nurmemburg trials are a good place to start. They were not used just to find the leaders guilty of crimes. They were also used to find out exactly what had happened. So many documents. So many eyewitnesses.
So, for you to say the holocaust is just some conspiracy theory by the Jews, flies in the face of reality. It is not a theory that the Jews would invent at that time. There was nothing in Israel for them. They were doing very well in Europe. In fact, I don't believe mankind is capeable of putting such historical events together to cause what occured in the days of WWII. Nor would he want to.
The only One who can move history like that is God. satan may influence as much as he can, and he does. But God is the One who directs and oversees it all. Man sometimes views history and thinks these things must have been orchestrated by someone. And he is right. But it is not by man.
