you reached the goodwin law breaking point
Godwin's law (or Godwin's rule of Nazi analogies)
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godwin%27s_law#cite_note-Godwin94-2) is an
Internet adage(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_humor) asserting that
"As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison
involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1
—that is, if an online discussion (regardless of topic or scope) goes on
long enough, sooner or later someone will compare someone or something to
Hitler(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hitler) or Nazism
But be aware that in one small country in the middle of Europe we have a
president who STARTS the discussion with NAZI reference.

Sorry. I haven't the time to 'spell it out for you'. If you really have
been studying the subject 'for many many years' then, in spite of your
claim to the contrary, you would certainly have known about the Ursula
Haverbeck case together with the other names I mentioned.
I do not accept that the term 'Holocaust denial' has any legitimate
meaning other than as an ad-hominem term of abuse.
Also, forgive me for doubting that "..in my lifetime I knew
people .... who were at the "liberation" of Auswitch". Auschwitz was
liberated by the Red Army.
I am older than you. I was fortunate enough to have been able to retire
at age 58 and have spent the past 16 years doing little else but study
the *real* history of the 20th century - and later. I am appalled,
saddened and deeply angered by what I have learned. I heartily wish
things were not so - but they were, they are and I cannot unlearn what
it would be far more comfortable not to have learned - ignorance (or a
plausible fairy tale) is bliss as the saying goes.
I could recommend a few good starter 're-education' books if you really
were interested but, from the content of your email, it appears you
believe - as I used to - that you have a pretty thorough and accurate
My post was to supply information. I'm afraid I have neither the time
nor inclination for extended discussion/disputation."
