Holocaust History Project - The primary function of this link is to directly combat Holocaust denial, especially the pseudo-scholarship of British historian David Irving. The articles themselves are of mixed quality - some of them being derivative of existing literature and not always written by an established scholar, but they are nonetheless academic and respectable with some of them of particular interest on specific subjects.
