Answering a Holocaust ‘Revisionist’

The Washington Post

July 19, 2009

I was happy to read in the July 14 Metro article “Write-In Effort Blocks ‘Revisionist’ ” that a last-minute campaign enabled Colin Mills, a write-in candidate, to defeat Holocaust “revisionist” Ken Meyercord. Mr. Meyercord had been running unopposed for a seat on the Reston Citizens Association board.

As a member of the 42nd “Rainbow” Division, certified by the U.S. Army Center for Military History as a liberator of the Dachau concentration camp on April 29, 1945, I witnessed hundreds of dead bodies in boxcars, as well as the gas chambers that Mr. Meyercord claims did not exist.

I don’t see how Mr. Meyercord’s emphasis that he’s a “Holocaust revisionist” differs from being a denier.

A few days ago, my son, who is touring Europe, visited the Dachau concentration camp. He described to me all the structures that are still there, including the gas chambers. If the 23 people who voted for Mr. Meyercord still doubt the existence of concentration camp gas chambers, I recommend they make a similar visit. At the very least, they should do a simple Google search.
