   "The Sariche's use of Arthur Butz, a Northwestern University
   professor of Electrical Engineering who wrote 'The Hoax of the
   Twentieth Century,' as a reference on the Holocaust prompted Peter
   Hayes, an Associate Professor of Modern GErman History at
   Northwestern, to issue a response to their campaign. Of Butz's
   work, Hayes wrote, 'It presents the history of the Holocaust as
   Heinrich Himmler ... wanted people to believe it occurred. Butz
   accepts the camouflaging vocabulary of Nazi sources at face value,
   rejects all other written and eyewitness records ... and thus
   concocts an account that virtually all professional historians have
   rejected.'" (ADL, 27)
