I wasn't comparing, nor was I being melodramatic. Perhaps the Holocaust was a poor example, but my point is that in severe tragedy -- where many first-hand sources perish -- we rarely have a historical stenographer on site to preserve the details for all time. Yet we can still call these things historically correct based on this crazy thing called evidence and investigative reporting....
You think that the recordings that were released by the FBI and the 9/11 Commission in 2004 are bogus?
You think that 911 calls are bogus? Recorded answering machine messages, too?
As far as the "insulting and petty" accusation, perhaps you should examine your own assumption that family/friends of those who died are not credible sources, even 5 years later. To insinuate that someone would lie -- to the Commission, the media, Americans in general -- about their loved ones last words is a stretch.
So either you're one of the crazy, messed up conspiracy theorists on this board, or you have some serious personal vendetta against what has pretty much been widely accepted as a relatively accurate depiction of what happened on that flight.
Here's a link to the 911 Commission report... they provide the cockpit voice recording device as evidence, as well as several calls made by passengers:
