I always believed the Holocaust story was endorsed to cover up for Allies being questioned at all over their methods against the Axis. A lot of those camps Allied troops came across had piles of dead from starvation and illness. I never read any reports of piles of prisoners found shot, gassed etc. Let me ask you something, you are leading your country in all out war where one side will cease to exist, your supply lines are devastated from blockade/raids, do you feed and provide medical treatment to the military/civilians or do you provide for the prisoners if you don't have enough for everyone? You obviously choose the military and civilians, for that reason the holocaust story was needed so people would never pin thousands and thousands of mass starvation and illness deaths on the Allies. The reality of the camps is they were identical to the ones we kept Japanese-Americans in, difference is the American continent never saw a day of war so the US govt never had to make the decision to sacrifice Japanese-American prisoners to keep the country in the war. Was their abuse in the camps? Probably. Was their murder in the camps? Probably. Was it done officially with unsealed gas chambers and crematories that can defy all the logic and math needed to burn up millions of Jews in the time span it happened? No not at all, not buying it. What I'm saying isn't an endorsement of Nazism, it's an endorsement of historical honesty.
