It is so sad that people today do not believe the Holocaust happened. How could people deny millions of people dying? Maybe people feel if they don't see it with their own eyes, it never happened.
I think that people don't believe it happened because they feel that they cant believe it if they didn't see it with their own eyes. But maybe they just fallow what other people say that want to make them not believe it happened.
i agree to some for some people they have to see it to believe the same thing happens with relgion
I agree with you on that people really don't believe that it happen when there are people that was there and when we have a teacher that a her mother in it
i agree with u on this topic of discussion that we have been asigned to participate in.
you spelt "FOLLOW" wrong :)
I feel that the people who don't believe it actually happened can't imagine that something that bad could happen, so they choose to make up a different version of the real story in order to hide the real truth.
Why we study history.
"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
I think that some people don't think the holocaust happened is because they weren't there. but there were a bunch of pictures and evidence.
I agree with that. The people that weren't there didn't know exactly what happened to the people that were exactly there.
yeah i guess some people just don't believe it happened because its so wrong that its unbelievable. But there is many things that prove it all happened.
I don't get how people cant believe that it happened. I mean that there is all that proof, and pictures, and some people are still alive from the time from when it happened, i don't know people can believe what they want to believe but i don't believe that.
well they think that no one i that meen or cud do stuff like that
I bet that the reason that Germany or whoever deny that the Holocaust happened is because that when we bring the topic up they don't want everyone to think there bad people and that they could have done something that horrible.
There are people who have to see it with their own eyes, or just don't want to believe it happened. If they don't want to believe it then it's their decision. They could just not believe because they haven't seen all of the pictures, or the remaining concentration camps.
I think it is possible because some people don't watch the news or leave their country and if you did that why would you believe that one person could do so much damage
I think that people have to see things like this to believe it. But sadly this tragic event did happen but people just do not want to believe it.
It truly is sad to think that some say that this never happened.I mean honestly who could so many people vanish of the face of the earth in a short amount of time? I find it rather saddening that people would believe that it never happened its disgraceful and naive.
How can someone not believe something like that? When you step outside and you feel the wind blow, you can't see the wind, but you know that is there. You can see that it moves the things around you, but you can't see it. To say that something is not there or didn't happen because you didn't see it or cant see it is insane. If you had family in a concentration camp, I'm sure that you would have a different opinion.
I believe that people don't think that the Holocaust happened because they were not there when it took place. Only people who were there and saw it with there own eyes know that it happened.
becuase they tried to cover it up by saying it never happend
I believe its the fact of denial and maybe people don't want to believe that a human with his own beliefs could cause this. I'm sure people have their beliefs but they don't take them that far! Also, it could be because people didn't see it and witness it. It's so horrific that its unimaginable. It's a real terrible thing.
I think that people believe that the holocaust didn't happen because they have been taught by people that it didn't happen
i think some people just dont want to realize that they were cruel and wrong for everything they did in the Holocaust.They could of done something to stop Hilter and his army but they didn't and now they want to act like it never happend so they wont have to deal with the guilt of being wrong and disgusted
I don't understand why people do not believe the holocaust never happened, there is plenty of prove and story's, so maybe they think that nothing so horrible could have happened.
Maybe people just don't believe in Jews? Hidden Racism?
I think that people don't believe what happened because they're in a state of denial. It was also an event filled with other little events that people don't want to believe, because they were so horrible.
I really think that people don't believe the Holocaust happened because they just cant imagine that people would do this to other people.
i agree but people have evidence to show people who dont belive
I dont see why people think the holocaust didnt happen. I guess they arent really there i guess cause obivously the holocaust did happen, because i serously dont think that would be made up
Yea i know right a lot of people don't beleave anything in less the see it with there own eyes. It's so sad that all the people lost there lives and wont even be known to sum. I am sad that the people lives had to be taken the way they where they did not deserve to die like that.
I think people think the holocaust never happened because what the Nazi did was unbelievable, like how could somebody be that cruel,and do all those terrible things to innocent people.
Most People who believe this never happened believe there cant be any evil in the world and if there is a calamity they will listen to bits and pieces and twist it into a media slandered circus story of what it truly is.
the people who dont belive it actually happened belive that its all a big rumor made up by the jewish to get attetion. i still odnt know how you can say a time of mass murder didnt happen
the reason they dont think the holocaust happend because they dont know about it or they didn't want that memorie so they say it never happend.
Because some people don't believe in genocide and that people think that the Jews wanted more attention so they made up the Holocaust. Well they are thinking wrong because there is a lot of proof that the Holocaust did happen. Like some of the camps are still existant. And some Holocaust survivors that weren't even Jews are still alive today.
I think it is so stupid that people today don't believe the Holocaust never happened. If they don't believe this happened then they must not have history books or their religion or something because if you don't think the Holocaust happened then there must be something that makes them believe it wasn't real. It makes me angry they don't believe it happened.
i feel they dont wont to know what there family did or what happened to there family so they just let it go or they chose not hear the grim truth of what happened
The people who believe it never happened, are people who are sheltered, or just don't want to believe something this horrible wouldn't happen in our lives. Something like this COULDN'T happen, based on religion, or just thinking that it was made up for media purposes.
people may not think it happened because a lot of people think " seeing is believing " the pictures and hearing about it isn't good enough
It is sad today because i really don't know why people don't believe in the holocaust. How could you not believe that millions of Jews died because of the Nazi's. I think people should start believing and feel bad for those who lost their left in the holocaust.
I don't think that people never believed the Holocaust happened, I think they just refuse to think about it. Because they don't want to think that something so horrible could ever happen to a person. And by people not wanting to believe that it makes their children not ever know about it.
Most people don't believe that the Holocaust never happened because they were never erased out of the history books or if they did learn it, their parents would tell them that it never really happened.
I think that the reason why people believe or act like the Holocaust never happened is because they could never imagine that something that horrible and something that disgusting and sad could have ever happened. And maybe to them they think they are doing the right thing by trying to hide the fact that the Holocaust happened so they can make sure it doesn't happen again.
People that say the Holocaust never happened are the people who have never experienced what the people who were apart and affected by the Holocaust so they don't know how that really was and i think thats the reason they claim it never existed.
People may not believe it, because some might think 'seeing is believing' or others say it's too horrific to happen to someone. Brainwashing people to think it didn't happen, too.
i dont get how people dont believe that the Holocaust happend there were pictures and evidence to show that it happend. But it could be because they dont want to believe that something that bad could happen to people.
people just dont want to believe that the Holocaust is real because people think its horrible
Some People say I'll believe it when i see it. Sometimes when people see pictures they just say that they think it was just photo shopped. But when people are telling stories about what they went through in the holocaust, they try not to see the pain coming from the person. Because they don't want to admit it happen, they could be scared of it happening again.
i think the same
People that say the Holocaust never happened are completely uneducated on the subject. If they had to endure the pain and suffering that those people had to take they would not only believe it, they would be forever scared from seeing their friends and family brutally murdered and raped right in front of you and there was nothing they could do about it.
I think people do not believe it because they did not see it with their own eyes.Also they might want to believe it because it is so hard to admit that so many people died and were work almost to death.This was such a tragic even t that no body wants to remember.
People are stubborn and say that there is not enough proof that there was not many people to share their story because victims are still scared.
Some people say that the Holocaust never happened because some people don't want to believe that something as bad as that, actually happened. Some think that life was to...inacent for something like to happen or they don't want to believe that there are people like that in this world.
People deny that the Holocaust happened because they either don't want to see it happen again or they were damaged by it emotionally so severely that they "removed" it from their memory so they won't have to relive it every day, so it's very possible that it is a psychological thing.
Why don't people believe that it never happened. We have proof of the camps they used and the family's hurt bye losing loved ones in the Holocaust. It's stupidity at it's finest, or just wanting to believe it never happened to block out the memory so no one would get the idea to try and do it again.
I believe that some people think that the Holocaust didn't happen because they didn't see the people getting tortured to death. The people that went through the pain and suffering want to believe that the Holocaust didn't happen but hearing all the stories it's kind of hard for them to forget.
I think that people do not believe in the Holocaust because they did not see it in their own eyes. People that don't believe in the Holocaust did not have to go through what the people that went through the Holocaust. I think everybody should believe in it and research it to know what happen in the past.
People still don't want to believe that the Holocaust happened because they don't want to believe our world used to be like that. But what they can't deny is the pictures and evidence we have.
I think that people don't believe the holocaust was real because some people were taught different. Other people were not there to witness it. There are still people alive today that were even in one of the camps that had survived.
I think that people don't believe that the holocaust was real because the family they grew up in probably liked Hitler and think he did nothing wrong, or they they were never learned about it.
People still dont want to believe that the holocaust happened because they dont want to believe that their race was as evil and murderous as the nazis were. Also the probbaly dont want to believe that they had a friend or family member die in such a horrible way.
I feel that people don't believe the holocaust happened because they did not see it happen with their very own eyes, I can not believe people would not believe all this happened?
I think that people don't believe the Holocaust never happened is because they didn't see it happen. They didn't live it, so they think it's not true or it didn't happen..
I think people don't think it happened because they were not there.
I believe that people don't want to believe that the holocaust happened because they don't want to believe so many horrible things could've happened. Also i think that they are the people who have to see it to believe it and it's to hard for them to wrap around the brains.
People think that the holocaust didn't happen because some people didn't see if with there very eyes and the people that tried to tell them it happened they have no prof to prove it. So that's what i think why people think the holocaust didn't happen.
People today who don't believe in the Holocaust are absolutely insane & need to get the fact that all that stuff did happen & there is more than enough evidence to prove it.
The Holocaust wasn't a mystery event, I DID HAPPEN! There is Proof that it happened, such as pictures, victims, and even videos. People who think that the Holocaust Didn't happen are wrong ,there is too much evidence that it happened.
i agree completly
i think that its just like how we were taut that it
but they were maybe taut that it didn't
once somebody gets something in your
brain its hard for you to go against it
I think people now don't believe that the Holocaust happened because it was a long time ago. They weren't there to live it so they think in that long period of time, someone just made it up.
Some people don't believe that the Holocaust actually happened because they dont want to have anything to do with the Holocaust. They don't want to hear about the past that will affect the futuare. Which is sad because there were 60,000,000 people that died during this tragic event in history. People who chose not to believe that it happened will soon have to face it again... All I have to say is I better not be alive when it happens again. I may not have been IN the Holocaust but just having nightmares about it is good enough for me. I feel bad for every single person that was killed in the Holocaust, they had to suffer so much pain for no reason. I don't understand Hitlers perspective because Jews are people. They are no different then any of us. Its like the slavery way back when Black people are still people they have as much right to live as the White people do. There is nothing different about Jews that should be caused to have such a harmful punishment.
The Reason why people don't believe the Holocaust actually happened because they wasn't there to see it. they just have to go off of the photographs or videos.
Some people never believed it happened because they are very visual and won't believe in less they see it with there own eyes. Also some Germans/Nazis just deny that it ever happened
I think that it is a horrible thing that people do not believe that the Holocaust was real. There are living people that suffered through that. People died but humans just won't believe it. It is very sad.
Because some p3ople like hitler! And some P30pl3 don't like jews.
Some people never believed it happened because they are very visual and won't believe in less they see it with there own eyes. Also some Germans/Nazis just deny that it ever happened
Some people dont believe that the holocaust happened, because they can't imagine such a horrible tragedy, instead they find it easier to believe that it was all fake.
Jews Didn't like Hitler and Jews in the modern world don't want to think back on there past of what there people had to go through. #"WorldPeace"
The only reason I can imagine why people wouldn't believe the holocaust happened is because of how horrible this event really was. So many people were killed. And also because of how long ago it was, although we have pictures and evidence to prove it all. Some people just want nothing to do with the holocaust.
I think it's because some religions are offended by it so they do not want it in the curriculum for people to learn about it.
Some people don't believe it happened because they weren't their to witness it. They don't understand how something so bad could happen nor do they want to believe it. Also many Germans will deny it because they don't want that put on them. Others just don't believe because they want to be against something to be stubborn.
because it was not put in there history books because they didnt want people to know this happend
Some people believe the Holocaust never happened because it's almost impossible to imagine an entire race being wiped out. Who could be so heartless to go as far as murdering someone for the way they look and their beliefs. It's all so hard to comprehend. 6 million Jews were killed along with 5 million non-Jewish civilians. Although so many don't believe. It's apart of history and people need to learn to accept what happened. There is still living proof, along with the labels each were given tattooed on. Pictures, books, articles, videos. So much proof, but to many are convinced otherwise. Apparently, proof, living proof at that, isn't good enough for all of the non-believers out there.
The only reason I can come up with why people never thought it happened is because they don't have any prove or evidence that it happened, or maybe that they weren't there to witness any of the people being tortured. Some people might be raised to not know that it ever happened, like their parents aren't telling them about it so they don't believe people when others try to inform them about it.
I believe that people don't believe that the holocaust ever happened because it was a long time ago, also that it was so bad people don't want to remember how evil and cold it was to believe in something like that. People to this day and even country's have banned the holocaust from being taught to people in the country's, which i believe it has to with their country being involved in some way. It is known no body wants anything like that to ever happen again so of course they are not going to talk about it, or teach about it, or even believe it happened. So they try to erase that it happened or tell them selves that it never happened.
I think people do not want to think about the horror and the pain that the people went through so they just say it never happened. I also think that they are not educated enough on the topic. For example if you never heard of some thing then you do not know about it. I also think that they could be brought up not believing that it actual happened.
Some people don't believe what happened in the past because they just weren't there and if they don't see it then it might not matter to them
I believe that people don't think the holocaust happened because they were not alive during it. I also believe that they don't want to think about it.
I personally think that people today do not believe that the Holocaust did not occur because of the extreme horror. These people can no comprehend the devastating events that happened to the Jews at those camps. Even outside of the camps, the Jews were harmed. I think that these people do not believe the stories that have been told because they don't think that someone (the Germans) could do something this awful and horrifying to another human (The Jews).
I agree completely.
People think of it didn't happen because they don't want the memories and to upset someone that was in the Holocaust.
I don't know why people dont believe that the holocost never happend. There is living proof and saying that it may have never happend really hurts thoughs people that had to live threw that pain. Im sorry but i believe that that did happen. Never say that it didnt cause we all know that nobody can make up suck a harsh story like that. And all the people in the stacks dead.
Because there were alot of crazy stories and some people would never believe it because they think who would ever do that to someone.
I think the people that don't believe that it ever happened just don't want to believe that someone would do something that horrible to so many people. I personally believe it did happen, and it just upsets me that someone would do so much just because he didn't like a religion, race, or a disability.
idk there is clear evidence of it happening so its not like they could hold up a decent argument
Because, some people don't believe that the cruelty punished on the millions that died couldn't happen in real life. But, there's evidence, pictures, and documentaries over the Holocaust and what took place.
I don't know why people don't believe that the holocaust happen, i think its because they weren't there when it happened. Maybe it's because they don't want to remember the pain or see the pain the people were going through. The truth is its really sad what happened in the holocaust because some of them go through starvation and some people get taken away from their parents and never see their parent again.
I believe that people didn't believe the Holocaust happened because they didn't see if for there own and these days the TV and people lie and what people see on TV is hard to believe. I mean who would think someone would lie about people dieing expecally if its there family, i know for a FACT i believe this.
I think people think that the holocaust wasn't real because they didn't see it with there own eyes. And I think thats pretty stupid.
To me some people today do not believe it because they never saw what happened or lived in what happened.
I agree with you chase
I think its because some people just dont want to think that it actually happened because they dont want to think that somebody could actually do that.
i think that if ppl dont belive then they need to read about it cause it did happen and ppl did die in the holocust
Its because they are to ignorant to realize what happened. Or they just don't want to believe that something so horrible could happen in our "Perfect World". If you don't believe it, open up your eyes and realize what happened. What if the same thing happened to your race or religion? What would you do if people just said that it never happened? That's basically what your doing now. Your denying what happened. So think about it, why DON'T you believe it. All the facts are there, just open up your eyes and realize what happened.
because it has so many different stories behind it
i think people don't believe that the holocaust happened because they didn't see it in there own eyes.
Some people don't believe because they think it's just another story that they hear.
They don't believe in the proof of what was the past. They weren't there and don't want to believe something so terrible.
Some people think the Holocaust didn't happen because they weren't there to experience it, are in denial, or hate Jews. I just got done watching a 30 minute clip about this movie (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7y2KsU_dhwI) and almost all of the people never heard of Adolf Hitler. (This also goes into other things like abortion.) This made me very awestruck.
i think that they are afraid that it might happen again so they mask their fear by telling themselves that it never happened and i wont ever happen.
i think it is sad that people can deny millions of people dying. And for people to gain a better understanding of the holocaust is to better educate them selfs by learning about the events that happened
Because some people dont really want to believe that it happened. They do not want to know about it and what really happened.
The reason so many people really deny that the Holocaust really happened is one of two reasons (in my view)
1: They lost a family member in it so they don't really want to accept that they died in such a terrible thing, so they make fantasies of how they really died.
2: They have been sheltered so much that they just don't accept something such as terrible as the Holocaust really happened. When they live in a positive world that is so perfect they don't really want to believe that.
There is definitely more reasons than mine, but this is my take on the subject. Also by following this quote and my take of it's meaning, “For the dead and the living, we must bear witness.” ~Elie Wiesel. For people to really start to understand how society works and how life really is they need to "witness" that the Holocaust really happened.
i think that people that do not beleav that the Holocaust happened because they dont want to beleav that this kind of stuff cold happen , or they dont want to beleav that there are some people that wold even do that . i bet that if some of thees people were told and educated in the Holocaust that they wold open there eyes to what is true and , finely see that this kind of stuff dose happen .
I dont know how people could think that somthing that big never happened. Its probaly that they are in denile. Or the seeing is believing
