Cole as a Holoaust revisionist is most well-known for in 1992 visiting Auschwitz, posing as a Holocaust believer, and putting some difficult questions to the senior curator of the Auschwitz State Museum. This interview was used in a famous Holocaust revisionist film which contains admissions such as that a room which was shown to half a million visitors a year and claimed to be a genuine homicidal gas chamber was in fact a "reconstruction". See the "External links" section for a link to this movie.

Cole went into hiding after he was hounded by the self-styled Jewish Defense League, eventually terrorised into a half-hearted and unconvincing recantation in 1998.

After 2013

David Cole in 2013.

He came out of hiding in 2013, revealing that he has been using the name David Stein since 1998 and admitting that his 1998 recantation was fake, telling the Guardian "I haven't changed my views. But I regret I didn't have the facility with language that I have now. I was just a kid." During this period Cole/Stein became a well-known conservative Republican in Hollywood running the "Republican Party Animals", a social club for Hollywood conservatives.

However, Cole's stated view on the Holocaust was now somewhat similar to the stated Holocaust views of David Irving. He thus argued that mass killings had occurred at some camps such as at Treblinka. His arguments have been criticized.[1]
