- Adolf Hilter led the Nazi Party, which orchestrated the murder of 6 million Jewish people and millions of other people in the Holocaust. The Holocaust is the best documented case of genocide, according to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
During a lengthy Dec. 1 interview on conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ show, "InfoWars," Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, repeatedly sympathized with Adolf Hitler.
The joint interview with white nationalist leader Nick Fuentes spanned nearly three hours. Ye repeated his love for Hitler and the Nazi Party multiple times, even debating Jones on the issue when the host tried to separate Ye from antisemitic beliefs.
One particular claim caught the attention of many, when Ye denied a central fact about the Holocaust.
Those claims are egregiously false. Hitler was the Nazi Party’s leader, and there is overwhelming evidence as well as physical remnants proving that the Nazis murdered millions of people in the Holocaust. Six million of the victims were Jews.
The Holocaust is the best documented case of genocide, according to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Nazi officers kept records of victims and maps of where Jewish executions occurred. And scholars, government agencies and Jewish organizations have used census reports, captured German and Axis archives and postwar investigations to accurately estimate the human losses, according to the museum.
Dwight D. Eisenhower — who then served as supreme allied commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force before later becoming U.S. president — ordered that the carnage he and other troops witnessed at one of the liberated concentration camps be documented. Film footage from their April 1945 tour of Ohrdruf in Germany is still available today, among other publicly shared photographs and footage.
Physical evidence from the genocide is also displayed at numerous Holocaust museums, including the train cars that were used to take people to concentration camps and the clothing and shoes of the people who were killed.
