Oh dear, a good person Mr. Smith seemed. His legacy will be that of a principal instigator to the total destruction of the despicable Industry lies. Today, as I write this, the fruits of his endeavours are clear to be seen. The types who feed off these black lies are …

True and Important The "Holocaust" story is both true and important. However — The part that's true (Jewish suffering during WW II) isn't important (millions more suffered, many suffered more); The part that's important (mass genocide in "gas chambers") isn't true. — H.N. (W. D.C.) Needed: More Libertarians I wish …

Carlos Porter on how to document collections of human skulls, document gassings anywhere, and document documents. I see that we are back in the land of “may have” that we once visited with Charles Provan. This story about Strathof and Joseph Kramer is the same old crap that William L. …

Hardly a day goes by that I do not get a letter congratulating me, advising, criticizing, offering to help, questioning my good sense, pointing out the errors of fact in Smith's Report and the errors of judgement in my thinking. The great majority of the letters are simply to encourage …

Arthur Butz Having almost recovered from returning from vacation, I was able to read SR 34. The account (p. 4) of the ad in the FAZ, May 17, is erroneous. The ad is very generally worded and many readers would have no idea who or what is involved. There was …

Charles E. Weber. I was utterly astonished to find the statement on page 3 of SR: “SOR’s first issue will feature . . . the first full review of Daniel Goldhagen’s Hitler’s Willing Executioners by a revisionist publication anywhere.” My rather long review not only appeared in Christian News of …

D.E. Johnson ... The work you do is invaluable. You are the only person I know of who is doing what you do ... Smith’s Report of December 1996 used a lot of postage, paper, and ink in relating the IHR/Carto debacle ... What is the purpose of becoming embroiled …

This month I have enough material to fill a 10-page Notebook rather than the one or one and a half pages I have allotted for it. I have decided to save myself a lot of editing work by setting it all aside and using the space this month to listen …

Young [German] Parents (email): Dear Mr. Smith, Please allow us to express our sincere gratitude and admiration for your courage! The information provided by you [on the Internet] through CODOH has greatly improved our understanding of our own (German) people’s past. It is good to know that our recently born …

Robert Faurisson. Because of my press release of 19 April 1996 (See p. 4-5 of “An Assessment of the Garaudy/Abbe Pierre Affair,” January—October 1996) I was immediately indicted. For many reasons, my trial was twice postponed. It will start on 25 September in Paris. The presiding judge said to my …

Pressac’s “proof.” Samuel Crowell's facts: Samuel Crowell’s extremely valuable work on the routine and legally required use of gas-tight doors with peepholes by the Germans for tens of thousands of air-raid shelters shows, once again, how totally devoid of any real evidence the Holocaust story is regarding the alleged use …

The Web/Net may be the last battlefield in this whole enterprise. Hoaxery has pretty well driven opposition almost totally from the printed media, and with the severe reprimand even from the land’s national legislature by a unanimous vote condemning any and all who question Establishment hoaxery, it would seem the …

Your Web site on the Internet is overwhelming for someone just “tuning in.” How about a guide, on your site that, for beginners, would recommend where to go first? B.F., Tucson AZ Good idea. I'll run it past the gang. I am a “Morgenthau Plan” survivor. This gets them every …

[Please inform me if you do not want your name mentioned in SR. While I read every letter that crosses my desk, I can not respond to any that does not pertain to important business needing immediate attention.] I just read David Cole's "repudiation" on the CODOH website. Instant reactions: …

I found your Web page and was deeply moved. Do you know the story, surely apocryphal, about Mozart discovering the music of J.S. Bach? According to the story Mozart was already an established composer by the time of this discovery (which was quite possible, given Bach’s obscurity as a composer …

In addition to revisionist history, there is the related matter of the history of revisionism, a subject I do not think can be done at the moment. The person I thought capable of doing this right was Keith Stimely [editor of The Journal of Historical Review in the early 1980s], …

What a marvelous series this promises to be [An Ongoing Conversation About Libertarianism and Revisionism]. Six months ago I would not have given a “Holocaust Revisionist" any credibility whatsoever. Ad homonym attacks are common because they tend to be very effective (and require little intellectual or factual ammunition), and I …

This morning I received your July issue of SR, which I read with the utmost interest and curiosity. On setting the newsletter aside after spending a half hour reading it, I noticed that my fingertips were all slightly blistered, and my eyes were smarting, the way they do when I …

In April of 1996, Senators Boxer (CA) and Spector (PA) gifted $1 million to Steven Spielberg for his Shoah Holocaust project where the money would be used to pay for recording 50,000 holocaust survivor voices around the world—the money came out of the House Appropriations Committee Library Funds—education funds intended …

The Holocaust Controversy: The Case for Open Debate, is one of the best revisionist articles I have read. It has the additional advantage of being in leaflet form. I put them in the postage-free return envelopes I get with my junk-mail. You used to advertise this leaflet in Smith’s Report. …

I’m worried about Carlos Porter. I’ve been reviewing your coverage in Smith's Report (particularly your issue # 48) of his problems with the German government over his revisionist writings. Because Porter lives in Belgium, he apparently believes the German court cannot reach him. If Eichmann could be kidnapped by Israelis …

I’m an evening, part-time, adult education teacher. The enclosed letter was on the desk that I share with my morning counterpart who teaches social studies during the regular school hours. More ammo for your refreshing, monthly revisionist newsletter. Keep up the good work. H.M., Florida The letter referred to is …

I want to post (with permission) your fine Report article exposing the Dachau photo date (see SR 62-Ed.]. The photo itself [US Signals Corps photo 207745] is not on the USHMM Website. (I checked last night: several other ones are, including the “execution” of the Dachau guards. Can one of …

Liberty Survivor I am a USS Liberty survivor. I would like to thank you for writing a great article about our incident. It’s nice to see someone get it right once in a while. Thanks so very much. John Hrankowski, Rochester, NY Mr. Hrankowski refers to the review of James …

Three Bravos for The Revisionist I got my copy of the first “Revisionist” yesterday and have read it from cover to cover. My conclusion: BRAVO, BRAVO, BRAVO! I hope you are able to sustain the high level of the first issue. I particularly commend you for continuing all articles on …

Carlos Porter responds to the arrest of Hans Schmidt in a letter he sent to all the addresses provided in issue #198 (September 15, 1995) of Ernst Zuendel's Newsletter, including the Ministry of Justice and the important newspapers. The original was in German. Dear Sirs: I wish to protest the …

As we have expressed several times before, one of our main goals for this blog is to present different revisionist viewpoints on a whole host of issues. While we do not seek to become an alternative political blog, our focus on history inevitably puts us on the path towards discussing …

Mark Turley’s narrative From Nuremberg to Nineveh: War, Peace and the Making of Modernity, is an interesting exposé on the final battle of the Second World War. A newer voice to the revisionist community, Turley is among the first wave of authors to take a sensible and objective approach to …

As revisionists are well aware, many of the defenders of the traditional Holocaust rely heavily on alleged "eye-witnesses" to the events. Yet how many "eye-witnesses" have not only been exposed by revisionists, but have been admittedly scandalized by the mainstream press? Still, that does not stop Holo defenders from standing …

In 2005, as near as I can tell, a Finish author, Erkki Hautamäki, published a book titled “Finland i stormens öga” (Finland in the eye of the storm). The book was published first in Swedish, a second volume is pending and a German edition is being prepared. Here is a …

On 27 January 2010 this blog carried a chapter-by-chapter presentation of the most extensive  revisionist study on Auschwitz to date,  Le camere a gas di Auschwitz. Studio storico-tecnico sugli “indizi criminali” di Jean-Claude Pressac e sulla “convergenza di prove” di Robert Jan van Pelt by Carlo Mattogno (Effepi, Genoa 2009). …

ELITE MINDSET To the Editor: I am writing to express my appreciation for Charles Lutton's excellent article in the Winter 1991-92 issue about the historical debate on the Pearl Harbor attack. The piece clearly establishes the central role of Franklin Roosevelt and his cronies in maneuvering our nation into World …

Not "Multicultural," But Accurate History In "The Challenge of Multiculturalism" (Summer 1992), Samuel [Jared] Taylor makes some interesting points, but he seems to be arguing for a history not necessarily in accord with the facts. Would it serve US history to overlook Franklin Roosevelt's provocations leading to the Japanese attack …

The "New" Journal Congratulations on the new format of the JHR! It is excellent! A. DibertIthaca, N.Y. I want to applaud your stafffor the new look and format! W.H.Houston, Texas We sure think that the new format is much better -and more practical. B. and S. R.Palo Cedro, Calif. A …

A Bit Worried The new Holocaust Museum in Washington is scarcely worth a serious protest. It is its own best confutation. People know this, but put up with such nonsense in the same way we put up with bad weather. The real fight is the serious intellectual one. At issue …

Defining Moment Just a note to express appreciation for the improved quality of the Journal. At first I did not like the shift from an academic to a magazine format, and I think I detected some grinding of gears in the change-over. But the July/August issue is a real success. …

Open Minded Checked out your web site. Quite thought-provoking. Will follow up on your references. Not totally sold on your views, but I am open-minded. My study of World War II dates back to when I was eight years old (I'm now 31). I am always looking for new info …

Dogged Determination The article on Jürgen Graf before the Swiss court [in the July-August Journal], while excellent, was also frightening and sobering. Et tu Helvetia? Yet, it is people with intelligence and dogged determination, like him and you, who usually leave their marks upon history. Equally sobering was the [Sept.-Oct.] …

Keeping an Open Mind As a school teacher, it is my job to keep an open mind and know all sides of history. Thanks to your great website, I can do that. Your articles are well written and informative. It's a nice change of pace from the biased garbage we …

Gun Control in the Third Reich A group called "Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership" (JPFO) says that Third Reich Germany banned private ownership of firearms, and that American laws restricting guns are copied from Hitler's. This organization also quotes Hitler as having said: "This year will go down …
