German physicist Werner Heisenberg (1901-1976) is widely regarded as one of the greatest physicists in world history. His contributions were crucial to the development of quantum physics during the first half of the 20th Century. Unfortunately, Heisenberg’s reputation has been assailed because he worked on Germany’s atomic-bomb project during World War II. This article shows that Heisenberg’s slighted reputation is not justified, and that he risked his life in an effort to prevent the use of atomic bombs during the war.
Numerous historians have argued that Dresden was a legitimate military target because it was one of the greatest commercial and transportation centers in Germany. Other historians state that the Dresden bombings resulted in needless civilian deaths that were not necessary to advance the Allied cause. This article discusses whether the Dresden bombings were militarily justified.
Sigismund (Sigmund) Schlomo Freud (1856-1939) has been rated as the sixth-most-influential scientist in world history. Medical historian Elizabeth M. Thornton writes: “Probably no single individual has had a more profound effect on 20th-Century thought than Sigmund Freud.” This article examines whether Freud deserves such notoriety—or perhaps its opposite.
A relative of a prominent Holocaust revisionist recently said that the argument Holocaust supporters fear most is “the physical, chemical, topographical, architectural, and documentary evidence of the impossibility of the homicidal gas chamber.” She writes, “And, believe me, the only thing they fear is that people may learn that there were no homicidal gas chambers, and that Jews have lied about that particular point.” This article discusses some of the evidence proving that there were no homicidal gas chambers in any of the German camps during World War II.
Niels Bohr was a great physicist who was universally admired and respected by his peers. Bohr made pioneering contributions to the understanding of atomic structure and quantum physics. Bohr also conceived the philosophical principle of complementarity, which he said applied to all important questions including physics. This article shows that, unfortunately, Bohr failed to apply his complementarity principle to understanding the origins and aftermath of World War II.
James Bacque in his book Other Losses writes that approximately 1 million German prisoners of war (POWs) died in American and French camps after World War II. One critic of this book asks: “How could the bodies disappear without one soldier’s coming forward in nearly 50 years to relieve his conscience?” The answer to this question is that numerous soldiers have come forward to witness the atrocious death rate in the American and French POW camps after World War II. This article documents the testimony of American soldiers who witnessed the lethal nature of these camps.
World War II is often referred to as the “Good War.” The “Good War” is also claimed to have led to a good peace. Germany under control of the Allies soon became a prosperous democracy which took her place among the family of good nations. This naive belief that Germany was a pariah among good European nations belies the uncivilized warfare conducted by the Allies during World War II, as well as the murderous and criminal treatment of Germans after the war. This article focuses on such crimes committed by Great Britain both during and after the war.
Dorothy Thompson was an extremely successful reporter, writer, public speaker and radio broadcaster before and during World War II. This article examines Dorothy’s life and career, and the precipitous decline in her fortunes after the war.
The Treaty of Versailles is sometimes said to have been the beginning of World War II. The Versailles Treaty crushed Germany beneath a burden of shame and reparations, stole vital German territories, and rendered Germany defenseless against enemies from within and without. Britain’s David Lloyd George warned the treaty makers at Versailles: “If peace is made under these conditions, it will be the source of a new war.”
The Western Allies deliberately murdered large numbers of disarmed German prisoners of war (POWs) after World War II by means of starvation, exposure and withholding water. This Allied atrocity was first publicly exposed in 1989 in the book Other Losses by James Bacque. Bacque estimated that the victims undoubtedly number over 790,000, almost certainly over 900,000, and quite likely over a million. The prisoners’ deaths were knowingly caused by army officers who had sufficient resources to keep these prisoners alive. Relief organizations such as the Red Cross were refused permission to help the German POWs in the Allied-run camps.
Inconvenient History has previously published an article documenting the testimony of American soldiers who witnessed the lethal conditions in these Allied POW camps. This article documents the testimony of other witnesses to this Allied atrocity.
Henry Ford (1863-1947) was born the year of the battle of Gettysburg, and died two years after atomic bombs were dropped on Japan. His life personified the tremendous technological changes achieved in that span. Using his innate mechanical abilities, hard work and exceptional inventiveness, Ford led the transformation of American industry.
Ford biographer Vincent Curcio asks, “How could such malignancy, and greatness too, coexist in one person?” This article attempts to answer this question.
We have been told repeatedly by governments, institutions and the media that we are facing a looming environmental disaster of epic proportions due to manmade climate change. We are told that unless society makes radical changes to our lives, we will face an increasing number of floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and other environmental calamities. This article argues that no such threat exists.
The Munich Agreement signed by Germany, the United Kingdom, France and Italy on September 30, 1938 was meant to mark the beginning of a new era in European affairs. British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain told the cheering crowd in London that welcomed him home after signing the Munich Agreement, “I believe it is peace in our time.” Unfortunately, the mutual confidence that was supposed to arise among the four great European powers quickly unraveled. This article discusses the events that led to Germany’s assuming the protection of Czechoslovakia, and their exploitation by British high officials to promote war against Germany.
Charles Lindbergh (1902-1974) became world-famous in May 1927 after he flew solo his single-engine plane, the Spirit of St. Louis, nonstop across the Atlantic Ocean. When he returned to New York two weeks later, 4 million people turned out to honor him in a massive ticker-tape parade. By the end of 1941, however, Lindbergh had become one of the most-reviled men in American history. This article examines why Lindbergh suffered such a precipitous drop in popularity.
German State Secretary Ernst von Weizsäcker worked tirelessly for peace and had never wanted Germany to enter into World War II. Weizsäcker fell out of favor with Adolf Hitler toward the end of the war, and might have been executed if he had not been in Allied-occupied Rome. Treacherously, he was charged and convicted as a war criminal by the Allies after the war.
One of the most-incongruous aspects of World War II is the American alliance with the Soviet Union before and during the war. The U.S. government, which claimed to fight for democracy and freedom, made common cause with one of the most-brutal dictatorships the world has ever seen. This article documents the crucial role that American aid played in the Soviet Union’s victories during World War II.
Establishment historians state that U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt was surprised by Japan’s attack at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. In reality, Roosevelt had done all he could to initiate Japan’s attack, and welcomed it as an excuse to enter the United States into what then became World War II. Roosevelt and his administration also mendaciously blamed the American military commanders at Pearl Harbor for the success of Japan’s “surprise” attack.
The devastation of Germany by total warfare during World War II cast serious doubt on Germany’s postwar ability to survive. Never before in history had a nation’s life-sustaining resources been so thoroughly demolished. Despite soothing words from Allied leaders at the Yalta and Potsdam Conferences, it soon became evident that the Allies did not arrive as liberators. Instead, the Allies arrived as vengeful, greedy conquerors. This article documents the plundering and destruction of Germany that continued after the end of World War II.
Promoters of the Holocaust story inevitably raise eyewitness testimony as “proof” of the genocide of European Jewry during World War II. A Sonderkommando was an inmate who aided the German camp authorities with disposing of the bodies of inmates who had died in the camps. This article discusses the credibility of several prominent Sonderkommandos mentioned frequently in the pro-Holocaust literature.
The allegation that 6 million Jews were murdered during World War II is today widely considered an established historical fact. However, an analysis of the number of 6-million Jewish wartime deaths shows that this figure is not the result of any meaningful investigation, research or calculation.
War-related rape is a phenomenon that has existed everywhere throughout human history. Probably the worst example of war-related rape occurred against German women during and after World War II. Red Army soldiers, American GIs, British, French, Belgians, Poles, Czechs and Serbs all took advantage of the conquest of Germany to plunder and then to rape German women.This article recounts some of the horrific crimes committed against German women by Allied soldiers during and after World War II.
Richard J. Evans was a professor of Modern History at Cambridge University and a specialist in modern German history. The verdict in the case holds that Evans’s expert report in David Irving’s 2000 libel suit against Deborah Lipstadt proves Irving’s intentional deceptions as to the history of which Irving has written. This article reviews faults in Evans’s findings regarding two historical subjects: the “Holocaust” and the 1945 bombing of Dresden, Germany.
The matter of the number of victims of the 1945 Allied bombings of Dresden somewhat resembles the issues surrounding the number of victims of the Holocaust, with one very-important difference. It is apparently perfectly legal to discuss the Dresden issue virtually anywhere, and say what you like about it. But as to the Holocaust, deviating too greatly from the officially approved number could land (and in many cases has landed) one in jail. Odd, that...
Forensics are indispensable to the solution of crimes. All crimes, except the "greatest crime in human history."
One of the worst atrocities attributed to the Einsatzgruppen was the Babi Yar massacre, which allegedly occurred in a large ravine outside Kiev in the Ukraine. The allegation is that Einsatzgruppe C rounded up 33,771 Jews in Kiev and shot all of them over the period September 29-30, 1941...
The “Holocaust by bullets” is an increasingly popular theme among promoters of the Holocaust narrative. The allegation is that the Einsatzgruppen, with support from the German Army, undertook a mission to murder every Jew they could find in the Soviet Union. This article discusses the absurdity of this allegation.
Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008) was one of the greatest literary and political figures of the 20th Century. For the first 25 years of his life, Solzhenitsyn was an ardent supporter of Vladimir Lenin’s Soviet Revolution.This article documents how Solzhenitsyn eventually became an outspoken critic of Soviet Communism, as well as his conclusion that Jews were primarily responsible for the Bolshevik Revolution.
Julius Robert Oppenheimer was the scientific head of the U.S. atomic-bomb project during World War II. Oppenheimer was a brilliant physicist whose contributions were essential for the successful development of the atomic bomb. Despite his outstanding performance in the Manhattan Project, Robert Oppenheimer’s reputation has been tainted by allegations that he knowingly passed secrets of the atomic bomb to Soviet agents. This article discusses the possible truth of these allegations.
Most Americans have never heard of former U.S. Congressman Louis Thomas McFadden. This is unfortunate, because McFadden was one of the most courageous and honorable congressmen in American history. This article documents McFadden’s efforts to expose the unconstitutional and corrupt nature of the U.S. Federal Reserve System.
One of the most popular and well-researched books ever written on the “Holocaust” is IBM and the Holocaust, by investigative journalist Edwin Black. This book asks whether IBM (International Business Machines) was knowingly involved in the so-called Holocaust. Black concludes that IBM was knowingly involved. This article documents that IBM and the Holocaust fails to prove IBM’s conscious involvement in the “Holocaust.”
Germany engaged in numerous anti-partisan operations during World War II. The brutality of these anti-partisan activities has been well documented by historians. This article discusses the nature and extent of Germany’s anti-partisan operations, and why Germany engaged in such vicious activities during the war.
David Icke is my favorite conspiracy researcher. For the past 30 years, Icke has done a phenomenal job of exposing the crimes and corruption of the global cabal that controls our planet. Icke is world famous because of his prophetic and prolific research. I do take issue, however, with some of Icke’s research on National-Socialist Germany. This article discusses some of Icke’s writings and comments about National-Socialist Germany that I think are unfair or inaccurate.
John Wears Article Did German Homicidal Gas Chambers Exist.
Rudolf Hess was one of the most popular National Socialist leaders. Albrecht Haushofer wrote in 1934 about Hess: “There is a strange charm in his personality; whenever he is there, a friendly veil falls over all the grey and black of the present.” Joseph Goebbels wrote about Hess in his diary: “Hess—the most decent person, quiet, friendly, reserved”. Hess is also famous for his flight to Great Britain on May 10, 1941 to attempt to negotiate peace with the British. This article discusses Hess’s motives for this dangerous flight, the injustice against Hess at the Nuremberg Trial, and whether Hess committed suicide or was murdered in Spandau Prison.
German historian Dr. Peter Longerich is regarded by many as one of the leading authorities on the "Holocaust." Longerich was hired as an expert defense witness in David Irving’s libel suit against Deborah Lipstadt and her publisher Penguin Books. He prepared two reports for this civil action. Longerich later wrote books expanding on his research for this trial. This article discusses some of the weaknesses of Longerich’s research regarding the so-called Holocaust.
The International Military Tribunal (IMT) at Nuremberg, the 12 secondary Nuremberg trials (NMT) and numerous other trials are repeatedly cited as proof of the Holocaust story. This article documents some of the Jewish attorneys, investigators and witnesses whose words and actions prove that the Allied-run war-crimes trials were politically motivated proceedings which failed to produce credible evidence of the so-called Holocaust.
Many people regard Erich von Manstein as National-Socialist Germany’s best general. This article documents Manstein’s heroic efforts to save Europe from Soviet Communism during World War II, and his efforts to defend the German military after the war.
Marshal of the Royal Air Force Sir Arthur Travers Harris (1892-1984) led British Bomber Command for the greater part of World War II. He is widely regarded as one of the most controversial figures of the war. This article discusses the career path that enabled Harris to become commander-in-chief of Bomber Command, as well as the morality of area bombings practiced by Harris during World War II.
