This is the famous documentary about the Auschwitz concentration camp, in which David Cole argues, that the physical evidence speaks against a claim of homicidal gas-chambers, designed and used for mass extermination in Auschwitz.
In the interview with the leader of the Auschwitz museum, Dr. Franciszek Piper, Cole is confirmed in his suspicion that the Zyklon-B insertion holes currently shown in Auschwitz, were in fact added after the war as part of a communist propaganda effort. A fact which today is generally accepted also by historians, who support the claim of mass-exterminations through use of the poisonous delousing product Zyklon-B.
Due to the ensuing controversy the film landed Cole in the "Donahue Show" where he sought to correct a number of myths regarding the Nazi concentration camps (i.e. the hair- and lamp-shade myths, the "human soup" myth among others). He also informed a somewhat surprised audience, that the official death toll for the Auschwitz concentration camp alone, had already been lowered by three million and that the number of concentration camps thought to have been engaged in mass-extermination by gassing had dropped from the initial 22 to 6, curiously leaving all camps, still assumed to have had gas-chambers, behind the iron curtain of the postwar period, and thus uninspected by western scientists. (this version has added commentaries, clean version is currently not avaiable it seems)
David Coles blunt nature and impressive "chutzpah" of course got him into trouble after this appearance. The canadian Jewish Defense League went as far as to publish death threats and offer rewards for his home address.
"What is a David Cole? Is it a sickness? Is it a mental disease?
Is Cole merely a human parasite who clings to his ardent Nazi supporters and friends who back his ideas whole-heartedly?
After all, this Cole mania that the media have played on, don't you think it's time that we flush this rotten, sick individual down the toilet, where the rest of the waste lies?
One less David Cole in the world will certainly not end Jew-hatred, but it will have removed a dangerous parasitic, disease-ridden bacteria from infecting society (...)
Just as we must get rid of this monster, Cole, we must also get rid of the word "revisionism" from our vocabulary. This awful word and Cole, too, must be eliminated altogether. There is no argument. There needs to be no more debates, only the elimination of the Holocaust deniers."
David Cole later renounced any and all holocaust-revisionism in a short letter, and to my knowledge nobody ever heard from him since.
As mentioned in the film, what initially seems to have sparked Cole´s sceptical interest in the Holocaust, was the so-called Leuchter report, prepared by the american gas-chamber expert Fred Leuchter, which contained the first forensic investigation of the alledged Auschwitz gas-chambers for the defense, in the trial against Ernst Zündel. These findings were further substantiated in the Rudolf Report.
