SMITH’S REPORT

On the Holocaust Controversy

No. 53 ∙ www.Codoh.com ∙ April 1998

Serving the Revisionist Community since 1990

This report informs you of what I am doing personally to promote open debate on the Holocaust story. It does not attempt to monitor the Revisionist movement. Smith's Report is published six times a year and is sent free to those of you who help me with contributions, clippings or in other ways. It isn't possible for me to do this work effectively without your help.

I welcome correspondence but can not reply to it unless it urgently addresses business to hand. If you do not want your name mentioned herein please say so in writing. Your generosity is the cornerstone of whatever success I will have in helping to open up the Holocaust story to free inquiry and open debate.

On …

Noted commentator and lecturer Joseph Sobran has for some time had an honored niche in CODOHWeb’s “The Tangled Web: The Consequences.” That portion of CODOHWeb lays out some of the many consequences that blind acceptance of the mythic aspects of the Holocaust has entailed for Americans as well as Palestinians, …

Last month CODOHWeb was pleased to add yet another language to its ever expanding International page. Working through a friend of CODOH in Turkey, we received a complete text of Harun Yahya’s revisionist book, Holocaust Deception: The Secret History of the Nazi-Zionist Alliance and the Inside Story of the Jewish …

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], …
