Use of term "revisionism" should be avoided,
By A Customer
This review is from: Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory (Hardcover)
Reviews and commentary should avoid the term "revisionism" when discussing the Holocuast denial movement and its proponents. As author Deborah Lipstadt points out, revisionism is a legitimate academic pursuit, while Holocaust denial is nothing of the sort. To do so is to lump together serious scholars with the crackpots and anti-Semites who make up the denial movement. Holocuast deniers want to be known as revisionists. Do not grant them the honor.
