The Journal of Historical Review - cover

Volume Eleven · Number Two · Summer 1991

Between 1980 and 2002, The Journal of Historical Review was published by the Institute for Historical Review.

From the editor

This issue continues, and completes, the JHR's exploitation of that marvelous godsend from the Klarsfelds and their monied supporters, Jean-Claude Pressac's Auschwitz: Technique and Operation of the Gas Chambers.

'Jewish Soap'
