It seems that we can now eleminate "e", and are left with a, b, c, d and f.Dan wrote:This is a preliminary list of the various proofs for the still widely held belief that Germans made people into soap. Please add to this list anything that I have left out.
a) A common lab recipe for soap at a German technical institute USSR Document 196
b) An affidavit by a laboratory assistant named Mazur, where the above recipe is greatly changed, USSR Document 197
c) A cake of soap presented by the Soviets at Nuremburg, USSR Document 393
d) Affidavits by two British POWs Neely and Witton, USSR Documents number 272 and 264 respectively
e) Cakes of soap refered to at the Nizkor site, which are not identified.
f) Anacdotal evidence of soap making at Stuttof.
After we get a fuller list, perhaps we can debate the data individually.
I sympathize with Charles on his theory of "convergence of evidence". Van Pelt was the one to introduce me to the concept at the Irving trial, and Charles' recent analogy of the murder weapon, history of the suspect, finger prints of the suspect was very good. But in the case of "e" I think it fair to entirely eleminate the claim made on the Nizkor site.
