Parody, meet reality

Perhaps it's just me, but doesn't this (real life) Daily Mail headline sound exactly like a Private Eye parody of a Daily Mail headline:

Did Hitler unleash the Holocaust because a Jewish prostitute gave him syphilis?


If only they'd managed to include a reference to house prices...

Fantasy laid upon fantasy. When will it ever end? Not a shred of evidence that Hitler had syphillis and not a shred of evidence for the Holocaust. All this witch-hunting based upon wartime-propaganda-now-money-making-religion. We are back in the Middle Ages and the Age of Reason may well never have happened.

I don't really agree that there's no evidence for the Holocaust: the abundance of eyewitness testimony would appear to be supported by, for example, the known existence of mass graves, alongside other evidence.

FR the excavation of a few mass graves would go far to convince me but none have been so far. Its odd that the USSR passed up the opportunity to rubbish the fash by not opening up a few sites. After all the German govt invited the world to examine the graves at Katyn in April 1943.
