Dear Ms. Marcus,

I am writing to comment on your review of The Jewish Gas Chamber Hoax where you write, "it sounds pretty much like old lies repackaged in a new format."

While the 45 minute video may contain offensive material it also contains breakthrough evidence in the testimony of 12 eyewitness survivors of the Treblinka Death Camp. Your review ignores these interviews, which were originally filmed by the USC Shoah Foundation.

The breakthrough evidence that the testimony confirms is that people were detained at Treblinka for up to 8 days and then transported on to other camps. This flies in the face of what leading holocaust scholars tell us. They tell us that no Jews left Treblinka save for those who escaped in an uprising, the implication being that all others were murdered by the Germans. In contrast, the testimony in the video presents a picture of thousands of Jews being transported onward from Treblinka as standard practice.

This is not a small matter.

The video also presents documentary evidence from German records of the arrival of detainees from Treblinka to the Majdanek Camp. It is worth noting that the new evidence is confirmed independently by Majdanek staff member Tomas Kranz in his book, The Extermination of Jews at Majdanek Concentration Camp (2010) page 24: "On 28 February [1943], 104 Jewish women were transferred from the death camp at Treblinka, to which they had originally been deported from Bialystok and Grodno. Similar cases occurred in March."

Quite simply, the new evidence found by Eric Hunt was not known, or not referred to, by the foremost experts on Treblinka, including such scholars as Dr. Yitzhak Arad. The new information has significant ramifications on our understanding of German deportation and labor policies. It will require substantial new study and analysis. Your review does us all a significant disservice by sweeping these matters under the rug.
