The Journal of Historical Review - cover

Volume Twenty · Number One · January/February 2001

Between 1980 and 2002, The Journal of Historical Review was published by the Institute for Historical Review. It used to be the publishing flagship of the revisionist community, but it ceased to exist in 2002 for a number of reasons, mismanagement and lack of dedication being some of them. CODOH mirrors the old papers that were published in that journal.

From the Editor

Ernst Zündel’s association with Jews such as Josef…
