Faculty Sponsor(s): Rusty Jones Butler UniversityThe Nazi genocide of approximately 6 million Jews and 5 million other innocent people is an intrinsic part of 20th century history. The Holocaust is a well establish historical fact that has become a powerful political tool for modern debate within modern discourse. Denial of the Holocaust has endured and expanded in modern times, and is no longer explicitly divided along party lines. This paper will analyze how fringe movements have hijacked public perception of the Holocaust, have intertwined anti-semitism, anti-zionism, and Holocaust denial, and the relevance of these arguments to discourse today.
