Robert Faurisson

For more than 20 years, Robert Faurisson was Europe's foremost Holocaust revisionist scholar. He was born on January 25, 1929, in Shepperton, England. His father was French and his mother was Scottish. He was educated at a Lycée in Paris, and at the renowned Sorbonne. He received his "State Doctorate" in letters and the humanities from the Sorbonne in 1972, where he also taught from 1969 to 1974. From 1974 until 1990, Faurisson was a professor of French literature at the University of Lyon II. He is a recognized specialist of text and document analysis, and is the author of four books on French literature. After years of private research and study, Dr. Faurisson first made public his skeptical views about the Holocaust extermination story in two items published in December 1978 and January 1979 in the influential Paris daily Le Monde.

Die Garaudy-Affäre begann im Januar 1996 und die Abbé Pierre-Affäre im April desselben Jahres. Die beiden miteinander vermengten Affären haben bis zu dem am 23. Juli verkündeten Widerruf Abbé Pierres eine wichtige Rolle in den nichtdeutschen Medien gespielt. Ihre bedeutsamste Auswirkung besteht in zwei Artikeln des Historikers Jacques Baynac, die …

Jacques Baynac, Historiker und Romancier, zwei sich offenbar auf dem Gebiet der Zeitgeschichte häufig ergänzende Berufe\. Mit seinem Bekenntnis, die Historiker drückten sich vor einer Auseinandersetzung mit revisionistischen Argumenten, und seiner Offenbarung, es gebe für die Nazi-Gaskammern keine wissenschaftlich haltbaren Beweise, wird es sich gewiß viele Feinde machen. Jacques Baynac, …

February 12, 2014 Eric Delcroix, my former lawyer, has just reminded me that the late humorist Pierre Desproges (1939-1988), in a skit for the television show “Le Tribunal des flagrants délires” (The Court of in flagrante delirio), once portrayed me as an unnameable character, unnameable at least for the French …

Residing, it seems, at times in his native Paris, at other times somewhere in Romania and sometimes in Israel, precisely at Ashdod, right beside the Gaza Strip, the thirty-year-old French-Israeli Gregory Chelli, member of the Jewish Defense League, works, notably by means of the Internet, at making the life of …

Are the officials of Jewish organisations sincere in their constant denunciations of anti-Semitism? At any moment, and for no apparent reason, they’re apt to cry wolf or, rather, yell about how “the womb of the horrid beast (that gave birth to Nazism) is still fertile”;. If need be they invent …

I sincerely hope that the recent appeal by Vincent Reynouard with, at his side, Marie Bruchet, will be heard by all our friends. At the strictly scientific and historical level revisionism has won the match but, on the other hand, at the educational, propaganda and media level we are more …

On February 2, 2012, Tehran hosted the second "Conference on Hollywoodism and Cinema" as part of the 2012 Fajr International Film Festival. President Ahmadinejad presented Robert Faurisson with an award at the conference and met with him in private.  The term Hollywoodism refers to the transformation, often mendacious, of reality …

Here are three pieces in which I deal with the matter of David Cole’s activities concerning the Auschwitz-I "gas chamber": first, a letter addressed to him and Bradley Smith on January 9, 1993; then, a footnote from the Introduction to my Ecrits Révisionnistes (1974-1998), December 3, 1998; finally, an extract from …

My old friend Bradley has left us. During his lifetime I could not hide my strong liking for him. I admired him but, out of discretion, I dared not show or say it to him very much. Now that he is no longer of this world I can go ahead …

Mon vieil ami Bradley nous a quittés. De son vivant, je ne pouvais lui cacher ma vive sympathie. Je l’admirais mais, par souci de discrétion, je n’osais trop le lui montrer ou le lui dire. Maintenant qu’il n’est plus de ce monde, je peux aller plus loin et déclarer sans …

When Robert Faurisson received the advertising marerials for the videotape "David Cole Interviews Dr. Franciszek Piper," he was somewhat dismayed to find that they did not give credit to the decades of work that revisionist scholars and researchers had done on the Auschwitz "gas chambers," and that our advertising materials …

Robert Faurisson In SR (Winter 1995, p. 6-7), you reported the visit to the Struthof “gas chamber” by David Cole and five other people. May I remind your readers that this “gas chamber” is the only one which enjoyed a real and complete expertise ordered by the accusers of Germany? …

SR’s October issue is excellent. Unfortunately, as for the good article on Garaudy and Abbé Pierre, some rectifications are necessary. The two men recanted more or less. The book that Garaudy sells now as a “Samizdat” is different from the first edition which was published by Pierre Guillaume and which …

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 …

Because CODOHWeb is publishing new revisionist scholarship, Smith’s Report is in the enviable position of being able to announce new revisionist work to its readers long before they will have heard of it from other quarters. The downside is that we do not have enough space in SR to print …

(All letters are subject to editing at the whim of this editor, particularly for length, but also for curse words, gratuitous insults and a perverse desire to keep things focused. Those letters which are sent on disk have a substantially better chance of being reproduced here without error than those …

ROBERT FAURISSON Your editor mis-reads a handwritten note from Professor Faurisson. Just received Smith’s Report #25 (August 1995) where you published an open letter of mine on my recent trial and on the court decision of June 13, 1995. You made a frightening mistake. I never said “Nevertheless, I forced …

RÉSUMÉ : Un témoignage doit toujours être vérifié. Il existe deux moyens essentiels de vérifier un témoignage en matière criminelle : la confrontation du témoignage avec les éléments matériels (en particulier avec l'expertise de l'arme du crime) et le contre-interrogatoire minutieux du témoin sur ce qu'il prétend avoir vu. Or, …

8 juin 1996 Hier, avec Garaudy, c'était du gâteau. Avec l'abbé Pierre, c'était pain bénit. Et, avec Régine, ça fumait. Aujourd'hui, avec les nageuses olympiques, ça baigne. Avec la prof de chimie, ça gaze. Et, avec la zizanie des intellos du Monde , c'est la vie en rose. Et demain …

Dans sa livraison de juin 1991, le mensuel Le Choc du mois publiait une étude intitulée : Milices juives / Quinze ans de terrorisme (p. 7-13 sur quatre colonnes). Le sous-titre en était le suivant : Groupe d'action juive, Organisation juive de combat, Organisation juive de défense Sous ces diverses …

L’Inconnue (XXX) : Robert Faurisson, depuis bientôt trente ans, vous défrayez la chronique par votre opiniâtreté dans un combat solitaire pour des idées qui vous sont très personnelles et que nous ne commenterons pas ici ; elles sont suffisamment glosées ailleurs. Je vous propose de faire connaître au public d’autres …

Am 14. März 1995 veröffentlichte Michael Shermer, Direktor der »Skeptics Society« und des Skeptic Magazine, einen »Offenen Brief an Holocaust-Revisionisten«, in dem er einen Abschnitt von mehr als 300 Wörtern einem Gespräch widmete, das wir im September 1994 in Irvine (California) auf meine Anregung hin miteinander geführt hatten. Er schickte …

Summary Elie Wiesel passes for one of the most celebrated eyewitnesses to the alleged Holocaust. Yet in his supposedly autobiographical book Night, he makes no mention of gas chambers. He claims instead to have witnessed Jews being burned alive, a story now dismissed by all historians. Wiesel gives credence to …

Today at 7.45 am four police officers carried out an extensive search of my house. They acted under a warrant issued by the Parisian examining magistrate (juge d'instruction) Jean-Paul Valat. Three of them had come from Paris and the fourth from the local Vichy police station. They found none of …

Le lundi 24 avril 2017, Mme Angela Merkel, chancelière de la République fédérale allemande et ancien membre des Jeunesses communistes au temps de la République démocratique allemande, recevra le prix Elie Wiesel qui lui sera décerné par l’Holocaust Memorial Museum de Washington ...
