1993: Jewish professor states 2 - 3 million gassed at Auschwitz
As late as 1993 Jewish Professor Jeffrey Shallit was still insisting that up to 3,000,000 people were gassed at Auschwitz, evidently he wasn't aware the total death total for Auschwitz had been lowered to 1,100,000 three years before.
Written in 1993, his famous
detailed the backgrounds & quotes from people he considered Holocaust deniers particularly David Irving, Fred Leuchter and Eustace Mullins:
calls himself a "moderate fascist", and claims, among other things that the gas chambers at Auschwitz (in which an estimated 2--3 million people died) were "built by the Poles after the war as a tourist attraction."
