Welcome

The aim of the Committee for Open Debate on the Holocaust is to promote intellectual freedom regarding the "Holocaust" and to offer a forum to those who contest the orthodox Holocaust narrative. Read our letter-size flyer "The Holocaust Controversy: The Case for Open Debate", our 15-page color brochure Holocaust Skepticism: 20 Questions and Answers about Holocaust Revisionism, watch the below introduction video, or read more about us here.

CODOH is operated entirely by volunteers. If you believe you can help, please go to our Volunteer page to view the many ways you can participate, and please donate to help achieve our mission to repeal anti-Revisionist anti-free speech laws around the world:

It is an indisputable fact that Germar Rudolf’s dedication to scholarly fidelity has produced some of the finest, most exquisitely detailed, most meticulously researched works of revisionist literature in existence. But this collection of books is much more than just a collection of his writings...


It is not a new observation, that Holocaust-propaganda influenced the Second Vatican Council to revise the Church's attitude toward Jews in a Jew-friendly direction. Usually however this fact is noted with approval. E. Michael Jones however does not approve, and has been calling the attention of traditionalist Catholics to the fact that their Church has been manipulated with a false accusation, the Holocaust, which they must reject.

So far, so good, but part of Jones' presentation, his explanation of how this happened, seems flawed. Therefore I consulted some other sources to arrive at what seems to me a more complete and more credible explanation of why the Catholic Church in 1965 succumbed to this propaganda.

No single person better represents the face of the Holocaust than Anne Frank. Her diary is compulsory reading for many school students around the world. Therefore, its influence on the shaping of young minds cannot be underestimated. This new book exposes Anne’s famous diary as a deceptive and highly misleading story written by somebody else altogether.


Most historians state that Germany’s invasion of Poland was an unprovoked act of aggression designed to create Lebensraum and eventually take control of Europe. According to conventional historians, Adolf Hitler hated the Polish people and wanted to destroy them as his first step on the road to world conquest. This article uses non-German sources to document that, contrary to what most historians claim, Germany’s invasion of Poland was provoked by the Polish government’s acts of violence against its ethnic German minority.

Thanks to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, we indeed seem to be rushing headlong into a major war—possibly a World War Three, possibly the world’s first (and perhaps last) nuclear war. Ukraine leadership and their Western backers seem hell-bent on fighting to the last man, and Vladimir Putin, as an old-school Cold Warrior, seems equally determined to press ahead until achieving “victory.” The cause seems hopeless for Ukraine, who cannot reasonably expect to prevail in an extended conflict with one of the largest militaries on Earth. At best, they may bleed Russia over a period of months or years, but only at the cost of massive blood-letting themselves. It seems that Ukraine will be the loser in this struggle, no matter what comes.

After invading Ukraine, the Russian government threatens to nuke Europe and the US in order to stop them from supporting Ukraine. Blissfully ignorant of the facts, and utterly disinformed by government media, the Russian people support to a large degree their government's actions. What does that tell us about the importance of freedom of speech?

Amazon is the world’s biggest book retailer. They rake in some 50% of all consumer spending on books in the U.S. and dominate several foreign markets as well. Pursuant to the 1998 declaration of Amazon’s founder Jeff Bezos to offer “the good, the bad, and the ugly,” customers once could buy every book that was in print and was legal to sell.


Sean McMeekin is a professor of history at Bard College in upstate New York. Stalin’s War: A New History of World War II is McMeekin’s latest book that focuses on Josef Stalin’s involvement in World War II. This well-researched and well-written book uses new research in Soviet, European and American archives to prove that World War II was a war that Stalin had wanted—not Adolf Hitler. A remarkable feature of Stalin’s War is McMeekin’s documentation showing the extensive aid given by the United States and Great Britain to support Soviet Communism during the war. This article focuses on the lend-lease and other aid given to the Soviet Union during World War II which enabled Stalin to conquer most of Eurasia, from Berlin to Beijing, for Communism.

Ernst Kaltenbrunner was chief of the Reich Main Office for Security (RSHA) from January 1943 until the end of World War II. In this position, he directed the operations of the Secret State Police (Gestapo), the Criminal Police (Kripo), and the Security Service (SD). Of the German leaders who stood before the International Military Tribunal (IMT) in 1945, few inspired more revulsion and contempt than Kaltenbrunner. This article examines the life of Kaltenbrunner, and whether or not the accusations made against him at the IMT are true.

German historian Dr. Peter Longerich’s latest book Wannsee: The Road to the Final Solution documents the alleged importance of the Wannsee Conference held in the Berlin suburb of Wannsee on January 20, 1942. Longerich writes that this conference's “minutes are unique because, more than any other document, they demonstrate with total clarity the decision-making process that led to the murder of the European Jews.” This article discusses whether these minutes actually document “with total clarity” the decision-making process that led to the so-called Holocaust.
