    DEOMI Research Report: Holocaust Revisionism

    "'Revisionist' has come to be applied to any person or group that proposes a different historical fact pattern or interpretation of the facts than is normally accepted. Revisionism, as such, is not necessarily a disreputable thing. Often history gets tangled up with political necessities and the version that is written is frequently tainted by the needs of the time. One should not place the two types of revisionism, Holocaust and historical, in the same pot. Doing so invites confusion and, in some instances, furthers the goals of Holocaust revisionism, which rides on the coattails of legitimate historical revisionism."
