After a relaxing hour drive to the town of Rosebud, my wife and I recently took in The Diary of Anne Frank, a show we had even more appreciation for after recently seeing the Anne Frank Museum in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Based on the diary of a 13- to 15-year-old girl, the book has sold 30 million copies in 67 languages and the story still strikes chords nearly 70 years later.

Criticism of Holocaust denial criticizes claims to the effect that the genocide of Jews during World War II in the Holocaust[1] did not occur in the manner or to the extent described by current scholarship. Key elements of such claims are the rejection of any of the following: that the Nazi government had a policy of deliberately targeting Jews and people of Jewish ancestry for extermination as a people; that between five and seven million Jews[1] were systematically killed by the Nazis and their allies; and that genocide was carried out at extermination camps using tools of mass murder, such as gas chambers.[2][3] The methodologies of Holocaust deniers are criticized as based on a predetermined conclusion that ignores extensive historical evidence to the contrary.[4] A number of parties have challenged Holocaust denial claims as being based upon flawed research, biased statements, and deliberately falsified evidence.[5] Courts of law have also rejected Holocaust denial claims (see Fred A. Leuchter and David Irving)
