Through his personal Internet Web site, Journal associate editor Greg Raven makes available an impressive selection of material from the Institute for Historical Review, including IHR Journal articles and reviews and IHR leaflets. A listing of every item that has ever appeared in this Journal enables callers to quickly search for titles and authors. New Web site items are added as time permits.

This revisionist material is instantly available to millions around the world, free of censorship by governments or powerful special interest groups. It can be reached 24 hours a day from 146 countries through the World Wide Web (WWW), a multimedia Internet service.

Each month about two thousand people in dozens of countries visit this Web site, with the average caller viewing 12 files (or articles) per visit. Because it is linked to several other revisionist (and anti-revisionist) Web sites, visitors can easily access vast amounts of additional information.

In recent months, the number of daily "hits" or visits to Raven's Web site jumped sharply – from several dozen to hundreds daily. In January, the site was receiving nearly two thousand visits every day. (For more about the IHR and the cyberspace revolution, see "Revisionist Global Computer Outreach" in the July-August 1995 Journal.)

'Hateful' Term Needed?

"[Abraham] Foxman [National Director of the Anti-Defamation League] believes there must be a better term to describe the deniers. 'To call them Holocaust deniers is too sanitized, and to call them what they claim to be, Holocaust revisionists, is to give them credence they do not deserve. We need a term that is hateful, a term that conveys the nature of the danger they present – that goes to the essence of their challenge to the Jewish people'."
—Quoted by Stewart Ain in "Six Million Did Not Die in the Gas Chambers," Inside (Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia), Winter 1994, p. 92.
