CODOH (the so-called committee for open discussion of the Holocaust story) is one of the major disseminators of denial in the US. We now have a webpage devoted to addressing the challenge that they pose.

We have a letter from Joel Hayward regarding his change of views with respect to his Master's thesis.

Our questions@holocaust-history.org email service offers answers to all serious questions on the subject of the Holocaust, its history, or its denial. Please see our instructions, and answers to previous questions.

We have a page on the team who puts this site together.

Our search engine indexes the entire site.

We offer a pamphlet for those seeking a printed concise introduction to Holocaust-denier David Irving and his lies, entitled Who is David Irving?

(Over a year ago, David Irving called this pamphlet "lies" and "fiction." Although he constructed a special webpage to reprint it, and has corresponded with us several times, he has been unable to name even one error. In July 1998, he said he would respond - and after a long silence, in January 1999 decided not.)
