Countess, who were there for me when I became a refugee and needed friends, who helped me build up Theses & Dissertations Press and launch the Holocaust Handbooks series. I particularly thank Bob, who discussed many details with me and did the final proofreading of the first edition.
  • Forschungs- und Materialprüfungsanstalt (Research and Material Testing Agency) Baden-Württemberg, Otto Graf Institut, Department 1: Building Materials, Stuttgart, for informative discussions and their permission to use their extensive literature.
  • Forschungsinstitut für Pigmente und Lacke e.V. (Research Institute for Pigments and Varnishes), Stuttgart, for permission to use their library.
  • VARTA Batterie AG Research Center, Kelkheim, for performing mercury penetration tests of building materials.
  • Bundesarchiv-Militärarchiv (German Federal Archive-Military Archive), Freiburg, for information regarding W.W. II era Soviet tank engines.
  • Degussa AG for sending information material on Iron Blue (trade name Vossen-Blau®).
  • Detia Freyberg GmbH and ARED GmbH for information on Zyklon B.
  • Institut Fresenius, Taunusstein, for providing insights into their procedural and analytic methods, and informative discussions about analytic problems.
  • Institut für Umweltanalytik (Institute for Environmental Analytics), Stuttgart, for assistance in the understanding of experimental control and analyses.
  • Zentralrat der Juden in Deutschland (Central Council of Jews in Germany), which, by its highly inappropriate intervention, encouraged my dismissal and assisted in preventing me from finishing my doctoral dissertation, foiling any prospect of pursuing a post-doctoral degree, and liberating me from the duties of a professional career, thus allowing me to dedicate 24 hours a day to revisionism.
  • The University of Stuttgart and the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart (MPI), which successfully prevented me from wasting my life in the ivory towers of science by denying my PhD and dismissing me without notice. However, I am also grateful that the MPI, through mutual agreement, converted my dismissal to an annulment of contract roughly a year later.
  • The Stuttgart District Court, the Tübingen County Court, the Böblingen County Court, the Weinheim County Court, the Berlin-Tiergarten County Court, the Munich County Court, the District Court Mannheim, as well as the Bundesprüfstelle für jugendgefährdende Medien (German Federal Review Office for Youth-Endangering Media) for trying to drown me in uncounted criminal prosecutions for my revisionist publications, which had the consequence of allowing me to pursue my revisionist publishing activities in exile, undisturbed by the terror of the German authorities.
  • Lastly, I wish to acknowledge the German and British media for their innumerable inflammatory articles and newscasts, forcing me into seclusion and a more focused devotion to revisionism.
