Did Chomsky question the Holocaust?

Reader comment on item: The Harassing of Noam Chomsky

Submitted by Warren Bell (United States), Dec 26, 2005 at 22:53

I went to NYU in the early 80s, and I have a vague memory of reading something in the Village Voice where Chomsky seemed (at least to me) to question the authenticity of the Holocaust, using the (now) old canard of "there weren't 6 million Jews in Europe to begin with." Does anyone else remember this?
