Does it maintain the original body count estimates or reflect the newly
excepted ones? I've seen a couple of the web pages on this "deny ...
Auschwitz" there agruements and evidence fit just as well against them.
While I do not feel that the Holocaust did not happened I am a bit concerned
about the allegations (and to a small extent proof) of inflated evidence. I
wonder if there are any sources outside the history purists that support any
of their finds.

Psychopathic killers, however, are not mad, according
to accepted legal and psychiatric standards. Their acts
result not from a deranged mind but from a cold, calculating
rationality combined with a chilling inability to treat
others as thinking, feeling human beings. Such morally
incomprehensible behavior, exhibited by a seemingly normal
person, leaves us feeling bewildered and helpless.
