Eric Hunt, a Holo­caust denier known for attack­ing Nobel Peace Prize win­ner Elie Wiesel, released a new film on December 6 titled The Majdanek Gas Chamber Myth.

Hunt’s new film, available on YouTube, uses clips of Holocaust survivors’ testimonies from the USC Shoah Foundation Institute for Visual History and Education (established by Steven Spielberg in 1994) to claim that “all the gas chambers in the Majdanek concentration camp were designed and built exclusively for sanitary purposes as disinfestation facilities.” Hunt portrays the Holocaust as a whole as “a deliberate psychological warfare campaign to con the world.”

Hunt similarly used clips from survivors in his previous films, including The Treblinka Archaeology Hoax released in May and The Jew­ish Gas Cham­ber Hoax released in March, both of which created buzz within the Holocaust denial movement.

In addition to creating these films, Hunt also started a new website called the “Holocaust Hoax Museum,” where he is working to create a virtual museum. When the site is completed, visitors will be able to tour the virtual space and “learn about how the genocidal ‘gas chambers disguised as showers’ myth promotes war.” Hunt is still soliciting donations to complete the project.

In The Majdanek Gas Chamber Myth, Hunt claims that “the gas chamber hoax has become a self-serving Jewish supremacist religious myth, which has no place in modern society.” He continues, “Holocaust hoaxers are holding onto this libelous charge for dear life” because without Majdanek, supposedly, “the Holocaust house of cards collapses.”

The film paints the Holocaust as part of a larger Jewish conspiracy to create infighting among Europeans, stating, “The gas chamber myth pushes Europeans apart. Jewish-owned media conglomerates inundate the gullible public with Holocaust gas chambers disguised as shower rooms propaganda, guilting Europeans to hate their people based on bogus atrocity lies.”

The film also claims that Jews use this “hoax” to justify Israeli military policies. Hunt says, “Israeli military brought to tour the fraudulent gas chambers at Majdanek are currently committing a very real genocide against innocent people in Palestine. Perhaps these Jews believe murdering Palestinian babies is justified because they were taught about extermination gas chambers disguised as shower rooms at Majdanek, but there’s no March of the Living for these dead Palestinians.”

Holocaust Denial Movement Welcomes New Eric Hunt Film

Eric Hunt, a Holo­caust denier known for attack­ing Nobel Peace Prize win­ner Elie Wiesel, released a new Holo­caust denial film on May 11 titled The Treblinka Archaeology Hoax. eric-hunt-holocaust-treblinka-archaeology-hoax

Hunt’s new film, available on YouTube, is a supposed “debunking” of the documentary Treblinka: Hitler’s Killing Machine, which aired on the Smithsonian Channel in the U.S. and Channel 5 in the UK.

In The Treblinka Archaeology Hoax, Hunt uses clips of Holocaust survivors’ testimonies from the USC Shoah Foundation Institute for Visual History and Education (established by Steven Spielberg in 1994) to make his claim that gas chambers at Treblinka and Majdanek, two camps Hunt visited in making his film, were not used to systematically kill Jews but rather were used as “life-saving shower rooms.”

Hunt similarly used such clips from survivors in his previous films, including The Jewish Gas Chamber Hoax, which created buzz within the Holocaust denial movement in March. He describes the USC Shoah Foundation Institute for Visual History and Education as a “treasure trove for revisionists.”

Hunt promoted his film on the April 27 episode of Spingola Speaks, an online radio program hosted by anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist Deanna Spingola. Hunt elaborated on claims he presented in The Treblinka Archaeology Hoax, stating that the Holocaust is “a blatant hoax…a damned dirty hoax; it’s a big lie.”

While Hunt claims the Holocaust is a “hoax,” he describes the death camps as “work camps” where the Jews got what they deserved. Hunt states that the Jews in the camps “were living off interest rates, usury, etc. and if you read Mein Kampf, of course, basically Hitler said that they should be working. They shouldn’t be living off people they’re scamming.”

In the interview, Hunt also calls for action against “the Holocaust industry,” stating, “I don’t understand why we don’t sue some of them. Why don’t we bring them to court and have them stand trial, have them explain themselves?” He claims he has “actually sued Spielberg over his Holocaust lies.” Hunt also asks listeners to contact Caroline Sturdy Colls, the forensic archeologist who appears in Treblinka: Hitler’s Killing Machine, and to “hold her accountable for her hoaxing.”

In both The Treblinka Archaeology Hoax and in his interview with Spingola, Hunt alleges the supposed Jewish-controlled media has manipulated public opinion to believe in the Holocaust hoax as part of a larger conspiracy. Hunt also said that his next “documentary” will likely focus on this alleged Jewish control of the media and will “blow the lid off of this Jewish Hollywood mafia involved in a lot of this propaganda.”

Holocaust Denial Movement Abuzz Over The Jewish Gas Chamber Hoax Film

Update – March 19, 2014: The full version of The Jewish Gas Chamber Hoax has reportedly been removed from YouTube “as a violation of YouTube’s policy against spam, scams, and commercially deceptive content.” Hunt has since called on his supporters to repost the video, and it is currently available on YouTube again in four separate parts.

Eric Hunt, a Holocaust denier known for attacking Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel, released a new Holocaust denial film on March 5 titled The Jewish Gas Chamber Hoax, which is being widely promoted by other Holocaust deniers.eric-hunt-jewish-gas-chamber-hoax

In the film, which describes the Holocaust as “the greatest hoax of human history,” Hunt uses clips of Holocaust survivors’ testimonies from Steven Spielberg’s 1998 documentary The Last Days and from the USC Shoah Foundation Institute for Visual History and Education (established by Spielberg in 1994), portraying these testimonies as “fraudulent.” Hunt used the same tactic in his previous film The Last Days of the Big Lie (2009).

On the March 8 installment of “Saturday Afternoons with Carolyn,” hosted by Holocaust denier Carolyn Yeager on The White Network, which describes itself as “Whites talking to Whites about White interests,” Hunt promoted his film to Yeager and The White Network’s audience.

During the interview with Yeager, Hunt elaborated on his theory that Jews use the Holocaust “to justify everything that they’ve done and are doing since World War II.” He continued, “Their attacks on other nations keep growing larger and larger, and they keep bringing up the Holocaust.” He added that because of the “Jewish supremacist fairy tales,” the West is “essentially committing suicide worshipping this hoax.” Yeager agreed with Hunt’s analysis stating that the Jews “destroy things. They destroy people. They destroy whole people and nations. They destroy perfectly good ideas.”

Later in the show, Holocaust denier Charles Krafft, who received mainstream media attention due to controversy over his Holocaust-themed artwork in February 2013, praised Hunt’s film, and Hunt thanked Krafft for being “instrumental,” offering his input “throughout the project.”

Hunt, Yeager, and Krafft then had a discussion about producing more materials, but lamented the fact that they lack funds. Krafft suggested that they seek funding from Muslim nations stating they should “get those oil sheiks that are supposed to be anti-Zionist to pony up.”

Krafft also recommended that Holocaust deniers produce more materials like Hunt’s film to “capture the imaginations of these young hipster types with media rather than literature,” adding that no one wants to read the long “scholarly” Holocaust denial works of years past.

Below is a sampling of some of the main points of The Jewish Gas Chamber Hoax:

  • There is “no evidence” of deaths from the gas chambers.
  • Holocaust survivors who gave eye-witness testimonies are “fraudulent Jewish witnesses.”
  • The death camp Treblinka was not a death camp but rather a transit camp where Jews were given “disinfecting showers.”
  • “Zyklon B was actually used to save Jewish lives.”
  • Bodies seen in actual footage from after the concentration camps were liberated were the bodies of those killed by the Allies’ bombing and not by the Nazis.
  • Gas chambers could not have existed because victims of the gas chambers should have been “bright cherry red,” but Holocaust survivors supposedly more frequently describe the skin of victims as blue or grey. Friedrich Berg, who produced Hunt’s film, has an entire website dedicated to this theory.
