Numerous books and articles have been written about National-Socialist Germany’s book burning and censorship. Some people even think that Germany’s book burning was the precursor to the “Holocaust.” This article provides the details of the book-burning campaigns under the National-Socialist regime, and how this German censorship compares to that imposed by the Allies against Germany after World War II.
British historian David Irving was viciously smeared by the media after his testimony at the 1988 Ernst Zündel false-news trial in Toronto. As part of the smear campaign against Irving, Deborah Lipstadt writes in her book Denying the Holocaust that “on some level Irving seems to conceive himself as carrying on Hitler’s legacy.” David Irving filed a libel suit against Deborah Lipstadt in British courts to attempt to end these and other similar statements. Canadian-Jewish architectural historian Robert Jan van Pelt was hired by Lipstadt’s defense team to act as an expert witness for Lipstadt’s defense. Van Pelt wrote for this trial a 700-page report addressing the historical and forensic evidence for the gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau. He subsequently wrote the book, The Case for Auschwitz, which presents the bulk of the evidence he submitted in his expert report for this trial. This article discusses some weaknesses in van Pelt’s research which was designed to discredit David Irving’s views of the “Holocaust.”
U.S. American historian Christopher Browning is a professor of history at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His research focuses on National-Socialist Germany and the so-called Holocaust. He has written extensively about German policy and decision making regarding the “Holocaust”; the behavior and motives of various German personnel involved in implementing National-Socialist Germany’s Jewish policy; and the use of survivor testimony to explore Jewish responses and survival strategies. Browning has also served as a paid expert witness in at least two major trials. This article discusses some of the weaknesses of Browning’s research regarding the “Holocaust.”
William Brooke Joyce, also known as “Lord Haw-Haw,” holds the distinction of being the last man ever to be hanged for high treason by the British Crown. Joyce was born an American and grew up in western Ireland. He was hanged for high treason by the British Crown at Wandsworth Prison, London, in the early morning of January 3, 1946. His offense was that he had given “aid and comfort to the King’s enemies” and assisted Germany “in her war against our country and our King” by making pro-German radio broadcasts during World War II. By the end of the war, Joyce was, after Adolf Hitler, the most detested man in Britain. This article discusses the life and career of William Joyce, and whether he should have been hanged for high treason after World War II.
Sophie Magdalena Scholl is one of the most famous members of the German resistance movement during World War II. She and her brother Hans took enormous risks to undermine Adolf Hitler’s power. Hans and Sophie Scholl were dead at ages 24 and 21, respectively, so left behind no careers or life’s work. However, a series of actions over the course of only six or seven months have made them world famous and national heroes in modern Germany. This article discusses the short life of Sophie Scholl, and why she was so determined to end Hitler’s reign.
Otto Skorzeny was one of the most colorful men of the Third Reich and its most successful special-operations commander. Skorzeny made it clear that, after the Allied demand at Casablanca for an unconditional German surrender, he had no other alternative but to fight to the bitter end. This article examines some of Skorzeny’s special missions and his good fortune in surviving World War II and its aftermath.
Media Matters for America, a leftist media-watchdog (now being sued by Elon Musk, by the way) recently reported that famous rightwing conspiracy-theorist Alex Jones "defended a Holocaust denier," meaning Ernst Zündel. Hadding Scott explains why this would be very surprising, and examines the content of Jones' show of 1 November 2023 to determine whether it is even true, and also offers observations about Alex Jones' general relationship to this kind of old war-propaganda.
Mahmoud Abbas, the President of the Palestinian Authority, recently brought a storm of condemnation upon himself by suggesting that whatever Hitler's government did to Jews during the war was motivated neither by race nor by religion. This point about "the Holocaust" was one of four anti-Zionist points that he made, but this was the one that got all the attention.
Hadding Scott checks the accuracy of what Abbas said and makes a couple of suggestions.
In 2001, the Journal of Historical Review published a short article penned by Theodore O'Keefe about the famous Austrian psychologist Viktor Frankl. On the basis of statements by Frankl and of research by orthodox historians, O'Keefe showed that Frankl was not particularly truthful in his recollections about his stay at the Auschwitz Camp. In response to a German translation of OKeefe's paper, Austrian engineer Walter Lüftl wrote a letter to the editor, in which he excused Frankl's inaccuracies, and emphasized his love of truth otherwise. The present article systematically examines Frankl's account of his experiences at Auschwitz. The reader is left to judge, how far Frankl's love of truth really does, when it comes to his experiences at and around Auschwitz.
A few days ago, John Friend a veteran journalist and podcaster who has worked extensively for American Free Press and The Barnes Review sat down with our own Michael Santomauro to talk about revisionism. The interview that ensued on behalf of The Barnes Review was rather productive and worth sharing with a candid world.
The Évian Conference of July 1938 is not often discussed, but when it is mentioned, the purpose is always to inflict guilt on the non-Jewish world for having been indifferent to the fate of Europe's Jews (quite a stretch since the conference's purpose had been to help the Jews). One reason why the conference is not often discussed may be that it imparts serious complications -- or, one might call them contradictions -- to the Holocaust narrative, and to the related arguments that Jews like to make. Bluntly stated, the Évian Conference is a can of worms that Holocaust-propagandists usually prefer not to open, and for good reason.
Recently however, on the conference's 85th anniversary, an article about the conference appeared in The Washington Post, provoking some discussion on social media that Hadding Scott happened to see, provoking him to write this article, which will appear in two or three parts.
We are pleased to announce that all entries to our most ambitious project yet, our very own Holocaust Encyclopedia are written! The counter stands at 568. All entries are currently in the process of being peer-reviewed, edited, and proofed. We currently have 15% of that work done, and progress on average a further 12% of the work each week.
During his lifetime, the former Auschwitz camp physiciaon Dr. Hans Münch was a prominent witness to the alleged mass exterminations said to have happened at Auschwitz during the war. He was always willing to testify in court, to give interviews to mass-media outlets, and to cooperate with organizations of former inmates. He eagerly confirmed all the cliches contained in the Auschwitz narrative popular amongst mainstream journalists and scholars alike. This interview gets to the bottom of what Dr. Münch really knew about Auschwitz, and what the sources of his "knowledge" were.
