Toward History

I have always thought that Henry Ford's concise definition of history sets forth more wisdom in fewer words than anything else I know. He observed, “History is bunk,” and in three short words the great populist industrialist spelled out one of the most profound problems of our time. We have to recognize that when Ford…

The ‘Holocaust’ and the Failure of Allied and Jewish Responses

Over the past several years, there has emerged with increasing frequency the charge that because it failed to bomb the Germans’ concentration camps, the United States bears a significant share of the blame for the Holocaust.

The Torture of Julius Streicher

“This is Purim Fest 1946!” was Julius Streicher's apt comment before he was sucked down into death via a gallows trap-door in the Nuremberg Prison gymnasium on 16 October 1946. He was the seventh of ten International Military Tribunal defendants hanged that day in fulfillment of the sentences imposed. (Hermann Göring had cheated the hangman…
