Debunking Holocaust Denial – The Fred Leuchter Report – #4

I found myself asking the question at what point does someone become a con man? Was it when he deliberately misrepresented himself as a professional engineer, when he sold faulty execution equipment which would cause a nightmarish death, or was it when he convinced holocaust deniers that he was an expert on gas execution? As strange as it sounds, I believe that Holocaust deniers like Zündel are potentially victims of Leuchter’s deception too. Despite having no formal qualifications, no real experience with gas chambers, and not just being inept but utterly clueless he convinced him that he was an expert in the field of gas execution. He took Zündel’s money, flew to Poland and botched his investigation to the point where even fellow Holocaust deniers have been critical of his findings. Or maybe Zündel knew exactly what kind of person Leuchter was. A fool with delusions of grandeur who would be incapable of designing an experiment to detect trace amounts of hydrogen cyanide in the gas chambers. The perfect person for Zündel’s defence.
