This is actually something I was taught as a kid. Tons of Germans and Russians were starving at the same time the Jews were being "holocausted." Best way to revise history is to stage pictures. And there are many examples of faked photos from WW2. Superimposition was available at that time. And outright removal of things as well.

Many of the great directors of the 20th century cut their teeth "documenting" the war and the aftermath. Alfred Hitchcock, Billy Wilder, etc.

The pictures feature British brand made bulldozers pushing the piles of bodies into pits, with British drivers in British uniforms - but no one bothers to look.
