Denial of Life is Wrong

What if people said your life never happened? People who lived through the Holocaust have to live with Holocaust deniers saying their life never happened. Holocaust survivors find this hurtful. If someone said your life never happened you would be just as mad as the Holocaust survivors. This is why Holocaust deniers are wrong because there were concentration camps, people lived through it, and there are artifacts from the Holocaust.

Holocaust deniers just do not take the time to listen or visit camps and do not have an open mind about it so they are not willing to learn about it. Holocaust deniers are wrong because there is too much evidence, there are Holocaust survivors, and leftover concentration camps.
