Germar Rudolf was born on October 29, 1964, in Limburg, Germany. He studied chemistry at Bonn University, where he graduated in 1989 as a Diplom-Chemist. From 1990-1993 he prepared a PhD thesis at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State research in conjunction with the University of Stuttgart. Parallel to this and in his spare time, Rudolf re-examined Auschwitz, Birkenau and other installations and buildings, testing brick and mortar samples of delousing chambers and alleged gas chambers for traces of Zyklon B. Following the pioneering work of Fred Leuchter, he put the final forensic nail into the coffin of the Auschwitz story with his 1993 expert report The Rudolf Report. Even though this book on Auschwitz was scientific in nature and utterly apolitical, Rudolf's home and office were raided thrice, his computers and papers seized etc. In 1994/1995 he was charged and tried in Germany for his expert report. As a scientist, he found the "gassing" claims to be scientifically untenable. Rudolf was found guilty and convicted to 14 month imprisonment. As a result, the University of Stuttgart denied him to pass his final PhD exam, relying on a 1939 Hitler law still valid today which permits withholding or withdrawing academic degrees in case of “unworthiness.”
Rudolf tried to avoid serving this prison term by going into British exile with his young wife and two babies. There he started a small revisionist outlet for German language material, Castle Hill Publishers, and the multilingual website www.vho.org, which within a few years outgrew other revisionist websites by size and traffic. In early 1999, due to the permanent persecutorial pressure, his wife filed for divorce and returned to Germany with their two babies.
When Germany wanted to have Rudolf extradited from Britain in 1999, he fled to the U.S., where he applied for political asylum. While his case wound its way through the U.S. legal system, Rudolf expanded his publishing activities into English language material, for instance by launching the ambitious “Holocaust Handbooks Series.” In 2004 Rudolf married again, this time a U.S. citizen, and soon became the father of a young baby daughter. Immediately after this marriage was recognized as genuine by the U.S. Immigration Services in October 2005, and at a time when a hearing of his asylum case was just being scheduled by a U.S. Federal Court, the U.S. government had Rudolf arrested and deported to Germany. Hence his asylum hearing which took place in absentia a few months later was nothing but a farce. In Germany Rudolf was duly arrested and put on trial again for his revisionist publishing activities abroad. Although Rudolf’s activities had been perfectly legal both in the UK and the U.S., Germany nevertheless applied German censorship laws and sentenced Rudolf to another 30 months imprisonment.
On July 5, 2009, Rudolf was released from prison. After a legal battle against the U.S. government lasting almost two years, Rudolf finally succeeded in obtaining an immigrant visa for the U.S. He has been reunited with his wife and daughter since August 2011.

Here is one of Germar Rudolf’s first appearances in public in the USA, illustrating his forensic findings about the alleged Nazi gas chambers with an excellent slide show at David Irving’s 1999 Real History Conference in Cincinnati, Ohio. With an introduction and commentary by Mr. Irving.

This video serves as important memorabilia on the historical narrative of the Holocaust revisionists' struggle and to see how questioning the Holocaust has evolved thanks to the Internet. Germar Rudolf is still a young scientist who is always creating and creative. An inspiration to many.
I have never really used this venue for my own personal messages, but two events of the recent past lead me to do so. Truth is, I should have sent out such a message right after the first event that threw my life into turmoil, but the second event following in its wake spoiled this plan, hence the delay. Let me explain...
Ich habe diesen E-Mail-Rundbrief nie wirklich für meine persönlichen Nachrichten verwendet, aber zwei Ereignisse der jüngsten Vergangenheit haben mich nun dazu veranlasst. Tatsache ist, dass ich eine solche Botschaft direkt nach dem ersten Ereignis, das mein Leben auf den Kopf stellte, hätte aussenden sollen, aber das zweite Ereignis, das darauf folgte, hat diesen Plan zunichte gemacht, daher diese Verzögerung. Lassen Sie mich das erklären...
Realmente, nunca he usado este lugar para mis propios mensajes personales, pero dos eventos del pasado reciente me llevan a hacerlo. La verdad es que debería haber enviado ese mensaje justo después del primer evento que tornó mi vida en un caos, pero el segundo evento que le siguió echó a perder este plan, de ahí el retraso. Dejenme explicar:
Je n'ai jamais vraiment utilisé mon site pour mes propres messages personnels, mais deux événements récents m'ont amené à le faire. La vérité est que j'aurais dû envoyer un tel message juste après le premier événement qui a bouleversé ma vie, mais le deuxième événement qui a suivi dans son sillage a modifié ce plan, d'où le retard. Permettez-moi de vous expliquer...
