Holocaust Controversies

Intention and Explanation

This is where we begin.

To choose the title of a twenty-five-year-old essay by Tim Mason to headline the first post of this blog might at first glance seem obscure. But although Mason was writing a quarter of a century ago, his exposition of the debate been the rival intentionalist and structuralist or functionalist schools of interpretation of the Third Reich retains a power and impact which has rarely been bettered since. Moreover, this essay, to be found in the collection Nazism, Fascism and the Working Class, Cambridge, 1996, was one of the few occasions in which the leading historian of Nazi Germany of his era tackled the subject of the mass murder of European Jewry, the Holocaust. Like many historians of the 1960s generation that began to study the Third Reich intensively, Mason concentrated his efforts on the period leading up to the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939. He openly admitted that he was psychologically incapable of confronting the horrors of Nazism at war; a psychic block which some of his friends believe may have contributed to his tragic decision to take his own life in 1990.

Holocaust deniers would only snort at this tragedy. How could anyone be so affected by atrocities that never happened? To the doyens of 'historical revisionism', Mason's personal tragedy would become transmogrified into a far-right morality tale: look, see, the psychic damage that is being done because of this incessant propaganda about the Holocaust!

In this video clip (2 minutes) the Jewish soap atrocity story is examined. According to the hate propaganda, which originated from the Allies, the Jews would arrive at Auschwitz and then be selected. Those fit for work would stand on the left, those on the right were deemed useless and would go to the "gas chambers". Those going to the right would be told they were having a shower. They were told to use soap (unknown to them made from Jewish corpses) beforehand. 


In this 9 minute video, reference is made to a film, The Hamburg Syndrome", which was made in 1979, which is a uncanny T prediction of 2020 and the COVID-19 virus, which spread from a street market in Communist China to the rest of the world in very quick time.

In this 3 minute video, a propaganda film (Forced March, 1989) is being made. The camp commander is berating his men (all 28 of them?) for being too nice to the Jews in his labor camp. Jews who are late for parade have their hands behind their backs and are hoisted up in the air, as a punishment.

Brian Ruhe introduces Doctor E Jones, on his show in 2020. Dr Jones is a world renowned author, lecturer and editor of "Culture Wars" magazine.  Here in this 59 minute video, Dr Jones talks about the effects on history, by the (corrosive) "revolutionary" spirit as embodied in the character of the Jews.

John Friend of the Realist Report, the American Free Press, and a contributor to the Barnes Review magazine, interviews John Fitzgerald. In this one hour and 24 minute video, John asks John number of interesting questions, not only about Holohoax issues, but issues relevant to the time (23 January 2021).
