    The article in question stated that the guy had said in 1989 that he
didn't believe that the Holocaust was actually as bad as portrayed and
that there were no gas chambers at Auschwitz. He said at the recent
trial that after he had read Eichmann's diary he had reformed his
opinion and now believed that the Holocaust was as portrayed by most
mainstream historians and that there were gas chambers at Auschwitz. He
seems to be one of those people who needs indisputable evidence to buy
into something. At least he is intelligent enough to look at proof and
change his opinion. Of course, they're still putting him in prison for
three years which, in my opinion, is dumb as a door knob.
