I have almost no problem with those figures - but I'm disturbed to see a top scholar of the Holocaust Deborah Lipstadt (or possibly just her publisher?) put on the cover of her book "Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory" that Deniers are:
"those who insist that the death of six million Jews in Nazi concentration camps is nothing but a hoax perpetrated by a powerful Zionist conspiracy"
A statement I'd have said was seriously untrue - six million is not the number of deaths in the camps.
Total death in camps is at least 2,848,000. Auschwitz complex 1 million, Treblinka 2 925,000, Belzec: 434,508, Sobibor: at least 167,000, Chelmno: 156,000–172,000, other facilities that the Germans designated as concentration camps: at least 150,000. https://encyclopedia.ushmm.org/content/ ... ersecution
I don't know who Anne Applebaum is other than "She has edited at The Economist and The Spectator, and was a member of the editorial board of The Washington Post (2002–06). Applebaum won the Pulitzer Prize in April 2004 for Gulag: A History published the previous year." - Wiki - but she comments "The vast majority of Hitler’s victims, Jewish and otherwise, never saw a concentration camp". - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloodlands
Elsewhere I've seen that bullets took around 2.5 million Jewish victims. And its claimed that gas vans took 2 million (though many of those were presumably in camps and included in Lipstadt's results)
Its not a very important falsehood from a top Holocaust scholar (maybe an accident?). But its quite a bizarre one.
