    ставиться под вопрос

    In the news about David Irving, holocaust denier and fascist, jailed today, I saw this phrase:

    Британский историк появился в суде, держа в руках одну из своих самых скандальных книг "Война Гитлера", в которой ставится под вопрос масштаб Холокоста.

    My dictionary doesn't list ставиться под вопрос in this context. My question: does it mean simply "addresses the question" or does it mean "call into question", ie. imply scepticism or some sort of challenge to the question?

    First post - great forum. Thanks.

    calls into question, or just "questions the scale of the Holocost".
