A Postcard from Auschwitz

The following is a true account of my personal visit to the camp. All photos are my own. Krakow is a beautiful city in early summer, the stand-out among southern Polish cities. Miraculously, the old city center survived both world wars unscathed. The huge central square is a sight to behold, and with no less than…

A Postcard from Treblinka

The following is a true account of my personal visit to the camp. Certain names and dates have been changed to protect privacy. All photos are my own. Mid-summer, Warsaw. Partly sunny, mild—a nice day to visit a death camp. I had just finished with an academic conference in the suburbs of Warsaw, and had…

Gassing, Burning and Burying

Let’s say, hypothetically speaking, that someone wanted to design and implement a systematic process for mass-murdering hundreds of thousands of people, in a short period of time, using poisonous gas. How might one go about doing this? This is the question that must have been brought to bear on certain high-ranking individuals in the Nazi…

In Part 1 of this article, I gave a brief explanation of the history of the diaries of Joseph Goebbels, the number two man in the Nazi hierarchy after Hitler himself. For more than 20 years Goebbels maintained a detailed, personal diary that included reflections on all aspects of the war. Of special interest are…

Holocaust: The Nazi Persecution and Murder of the Jews, by Peter Longerich, Oxford University Press, Oxford, UK; 2010, 645 pp. If indeed, as USHMM Director Sara Bloomfield recently commented, the Holocaust is still a “relatively new field of academic study”—now 65 years after the fact—then it is presumably appropriate to find new ‘milestone’ works still…

A Lucky Child

A Lucky Child, by Thomas Buergenthal, Profile Books, London; 2009, 231pp. The sad story of Holocaust ‘witnesses’ is well-known to revisionists. It is a tale of obscure individuals making outrageous claims of gassings and mass murder, often based on hearsay and rumor, often self-contradictory, and often in conflict with other witnesses, with material evidence, and…

Goebbels on the Jews, Part 1

Joseph Goebbels was nothing if not disciplined. Since his 26th birthday in late 1923, he maintained a near-daily diary until his death more than 21 years later.[1] These entries are at once unique and invaluable in their ability to provide insight into the Nazi hierarchy, ideology, and operation. Nothing else like them exists. No other…
