Arno J. Mayer

Arno J. MayerAKA Arno Joseph Mayer

Born: 19-Jun-1926
Birthplace: Luxembourg

Gender: Male
Religion: Jewish
Race or Ethnicity: White
Occupation: Historian

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Marxist Jew, quasi-revisionist

A Marxist Jew, Mayer does not question the existence of the Holocaust, but does hold unorthodox views as to its circumstance. Thus he finds himself quoted out of context in a number of unseemly texts. Notably he postulates that those dead from "natural causes" in the "Judeocide" at Auschwitz and probably in general exceed those that were executed. He also asserts the rarity and unreliability of eyewitness testimony to these events.
