Richard Williamson's views on Holocaust
It seems quite unbelievable that someone could deny the "evidence" of the Holocaust. I would hope that Bp. Williamson will retract these statements unequivocally so that he can serve the Catholic Church.
Three key perpetrators gave evidence directly related to the Holocaust: Hermann Goering, the highest official of the Nazi state tried at Nuremberg, testified openly and frankly about the persecution of German Jews from the rise of the Nazi party to power in 1933 until the outbreak of war in 1939; Otto Ohlendorf testified directly about his unit, Einsatzgruppe D, killing 90,000 Jews in the southern Ukraine in 1941; and the commandant of Auschwitz, Rudolf Hoess, testified frankly about the gassing of more than a million Jews at the Auschwitz-Birkenau killing center during the war. All three claimed that they carried out the legitimate orders of the state. http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/article.php?lang=en&ModuleId=10007271 So much for Bp. Williamson's statement that "not one (Jew) was killed in gas chambers" and the statement that "gas chambers did not exist." Rudolf Hoess testifies that he himself was responsible for over one million Jews being killed in Auschwitz-Birkenau. What "evidence" is Bp. Williamson looking at - or NOT looking at?
