"The site itself, the Committee for Open Dialogue [sic] on the Holocaust, is a troth of lies that masks itself as an attempt to challenge conventional wisdom on whether the Holocaust and murder of 6 million Jews took place. The assertion is so wildly and obviously false that to even address its claims would be an exercise in futility.
