What are they teaching you kids in OZ? Just because you didn't see it doesn't mean it didn't happen. Not knowing about something isn't the same at denying. You need to know enough about the circumstances before you can deny something ever happened, providing evidence to the contrary. That then leaves a question of motivation.
The first reaction of most people (US and Europe), when presented with a Holocaust denial, is to believe it's motivated by antisemitism. I'm one of those people unless shown otherwise, but at that point I'm not interested in anything a denier has to say on the subject. The denier is wrong and defending an indefensible position.
The thread is gone so I'm not going to dwell on it any further. If you visit the US or Europe, please visit a concentration camp or Holocaust museum for a sobering experience.
