They had finally found a mass grave in Poland.
They were so happy to finally have a piece of ACTUAL evidence that the holocaust had ACTUALLY happened.
They weren't even finished with the digging before they contacted the news to let the world know that "It really did happen!!!"
Fast-forward a little bit,
Turns out, it was actually a mass grave for German citizens.
Whoops.

Edit: Since you guys seem to like this so much, here's a bonus story -

For six days in October 1999, an Australian team headed by Richard Krege, a qualified electronics engineer, carried out an examination of the soil at the site of the former Treblinka II camp in Poland, where, Holocaust historians say, more than half a million Jews were put to death in gas chambers and then buried in mass graves.

According to the Encyclopedia of the Holocaust (1997), for example, "a total of 870,000 people" were killed and buried at Treblinka between July 1942 and April 1943. Then, between April and July 1943, the hundreds of thousands of corpses were allegedly dug up and burned in batches of 2,000 or 2,500 on large grids made of railway ties.

Krege's team used an $80,000 Ground Penetration Radar (GPR) device, which sends out vertical radar signals that are visible on a computer monitor. GPR detects any large-scale disturbances in the soil structure to a normal effective depth of four or five meters, and sometimes up to ten meters. (GPR devices are routinely used around the world by geologists, archeologists, and police.) In its Treblinka investigation, Krege's team also carried out visual soil inspections, and used an auger to take numerous soil core samples.

The team carefully examined the entire Treblinka II site, especially the alleged "mass graves" portion, and carried out control examinations of the surrounding area. They found no soil disturbance consistent with the burial of hundreds of thousands of bodies, or even evidence that the ground had ever been disturbed. In addition, Krege and his team found no evidence of individual graves, bone remains, human ashes, or wood ashes.

"From these scans we could clearly identify the largely undisturbed horizontal stratigraphic layering, better known as horizons, of the soil under the camp site," says the 30-year old Krege, who lives in Canberra. "We know from scans of grave sites, and other sites with known soil disturbances, such as quarries, when this natural layering is massively disrupted or missing altogether." Because normal geological processes are very slow acting, disruption of the soil structure would have been detectable even after 60 years, Krege noted.

While his initial investigation suggests that there were never any mass graves at the Treblinka camp site, Krege believes that further work is still called for.

"Historians say that the bodies were exhumed and cremated toward the end of the Treblinka camp's use in 1943, but we found no indication that any mass graves ever existed," he says. "Personally, I don't think there was an extermination camp there at all."

Sigh I wish we could plan together to get some posts on the front page.

I was just on a reddit front page thread of a cuck dad wondering if he was wrong for taking her 12 yo daughters computer away for looking at sex toys online while his mother encouraged it.

all the gilded top posts were calling him a caveman, wanted to reply but comments locked.

Makes me fucking blood boil

Holy shit I saw that. Everyone of those feminist cat ladies was calling him a misogynistic pig for not allowing his 12 y/o daughter to buy a vibrator.

Post FACTS, free of anti-semitism, like "Neither Churchill, nor Eisenhower, nor De Gaulle's mentioned the holocaust in over 1000 combined pages of their memoirs." and link the memoirs, like this: https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/28822?msg=welcome_stranger

Then come back here with a link and we can upvote you over there.

Jesus christ you fucking freaks! It happend because it is obvious it happend. If you idiots only did a little research historian schlomostein goldengerg hooknosenberg wrote that the germans used giant air ships thrley would fly the burnt remains 1 mile into the air in giant tarps to spread the crematrd remains in thr air to hid the atrocity! It is crazy that you idiots dont understand how good the camp operators where thry spread the 100 percent crematdd bodies in the wind a mile in the air.
