      BULLETIN ITEM: The Holocaust Controversy

      MWM: Nice discussion of the need for a public discussion on the topic of the Holocaust. The writer has got the main sense of it, I have some huge reservations however about his descriptor of the "revisionists" and thus I have inserted a few STOP LOOK type comments.

      12 -Â THE HOLOCAUST CONTROVERSY: The Case For Open Debate

      by Bradley R. Smith


      No subject enrages campus Thought Police more than Holocaust Revisionism.

      MWM: there is no such thing as "Revisionism". There are merely students of history, science, philosophy, and ideology. Perspectives and narratives and conclusions shift as more facts become known. This is not some process called "revisionism", this is never-ending life. Get used to it. To call this "revisionism" is to pander to a preconceived fixated idea. This lead in is more appropriately labelled, campus "Thought Police" are enraged by people who want to discuss the facts of the so-called holocaust of Jews in Eastern Europe and evaluate various conclusions about what took place.

      We debate every other great historical issue as a matter of course, but influential pressure groups with private agendas have made the Holocaust story an exception. Elitist dogma manipulated by special interest groups corrupts everything in academia. Students should be encouraged to investigate the Holocaust story the same way they are encouraged to investigate every other historical event. This isn't a radical point of view. The premises for it were worked out centuries ago during a little something called the Enlightenment.


      Revisionists agree with establishment historians that the German National Socialist State singled out the Jewish people for special and cruel treatment.

      MWM: These are not facts, they are emotional reactions and evaluations. WTF is an establishment historian? I took a minor in college in History and have never had the privilege of seeing, meeting, reading, or hearing of an establishment historian. I seriously doubt any can be found, most especially because we have no idea what one looks like. The point to this silly ditty: stop being lazy and throwing around perfectly worthless labels. You simply cannot get to any serious level of truth with this level of semantic confusion.

      In addition to viewing Jews in the framework of traditional anti-Semitism,

      MWM: Humbug. Here is a leaping generalization too fat to fly very far. More seriously, we have no idea what traditional anti-semitism is. If it is traditional ethnic tribal hostility to those of another tribe, we might as well just call it tribal hostility or possibly ethnic racism or jingoism. These can be reasonably stated and understood in objective universal terms. Anti-semitism as "semantics" is a poison pill invented by Zionists to postulate that human beings genetically and incurably hate the special tribe of Jews/Hebrews and thus the Jews/Hebrews require special status. This is about as objective as elementary school fairy tales. The instant you discuss Jewish issues with the idea of anti-semitism lurking around you sink into an emotional trap which has way out.

      the Nazis also saw them as being an influential force behind international communism. During the Second World War, Jews were considered to be enemies of the State and a potential danger to the war effort, much like the Japanese were viewed in this country.

      MWM: These are important true points.

      Consequently, Jews were stripped of their rights, forced to live in ghettos, conscripted for labor, deprived of their property, deported from the countries of their birth and otherwise mistreated. Many tragically perished in the maelstrom.

      MWM: This is as should be well known over-stated or over-generalized. Many of Jewish origin were migrants with no legitimate status. The question was partly what to do about the illegal migrants. Many of the Jews willingly flocked to the eastern ghettos to live out the war because of the barbarism of British and American bombing raids. For the first time in several hundred years of euro civilization, the Anglo Empire commenced directing military operations against the populations of major cities. Much of the war propaganda of the holocaust of the Jews is in fact a smoke screen for the military barbarism of the Anglo-American elites whom desired to "neutralize" Western and Central Europe out of international affairs once and for all. The point here is that you cannot look at the suffering in Europe as "a Jewish phenom" and thus there are many points of view worthy of discussion. It was a people phenom which had many dimensions and within this context, the Jews were just another group of many peoples who were greatly disturbed and devastated in many ways. Churchill's vicious hatred (paranoid jealousy) of the Germans almost single-handedly was the cause of the murder of a few million Germans. Why isn't the world discussing British and American mass death policies for fighting wars? Since these are still on-going, this question should be uppermost.

      Revisionists part company with establishment historians in that Revisionists deny that the German State had a policy to exterminate the Jewish people (or anyone else) by putting them to death in gas chambers or killing them through abuse or neglect.

      MWM: Not knowing WTF a revisionist is, I will comment only that the assertion that Hitler had set the Germans to extermination of Jews is widely perceived by those who have studied the issue to be not true.

      Revisionists also maintain that the figure of 6 million Jewish deaths is an irresponsible exaggeration, and that no execution gas chambers existed in any camp in Europe which was under German control. Fumigation gas chambers did exist to delouse clothing and equipment to prevent disease at the camps. It is very likely that it was from this life-SAVING procedure that the myth of extermination gas chambers emerged.

      MWM: True points recognized by many, as are most of the remaining points in this essay.

      Revisionists generally hold that the Allied governments decided to carry their wartime "black propaganda" of German monstrosity over into the postwar period. This was done for essentially three reasons. First, they felt it necessary to continue to justify the great sacrifices that were made in fighting two world wars. A second reason was that they wanted to divert attention from and to justify their own particularly brutal crimes against humanity which, apart from Soviet atrocities, involved massive incendiary bombings of the civilian populations of German and Japanese cities. The third and perhaps most important reason was that they needed justification for the postwar arrangements which, among other things, involved the annexation of large parts of Germany into Poland. These territories were not disputed borderlands but included huge parts of Germany proper. The millions of Germans living in these regions were to be dispossessed of their property and brutally expelled from their homelands. Many hundreds of thousands were to perish in the process. A similar fate was to befall the Sudetan Germans.

      During the war, and in the postwar era as well, Zionist organizations joined with the Allied Governments and became deeply involved in creating and promulgating anti-German hate propaganda. There is little doubt that their purpose was to drum up world sympathy and political and financial support for Jewish causes, especially for the formation of the State of Israel. Today, while the political benefits of the Holocaust story have largely dissipated for the others, the story still plays an important role in the ambitions of Zionist and other organizations in the Jewish community. It is the leaders of these political and propaganda organizations who continue to work to sustain the orthodox Holocaust legend and the myth of German monstrosity during the Second World War.

      Those who would claim that these interpretations are anti-Jewish are reading into them something which simply is not there. Revisionists do not claim that Jewish leaders or organizations did anything in the war and postwar era which the Allied Governments themselves did not do.

      MWM: This is badly stated. In fact, many different agendas were being worked and the Jewish interests and Zionists had a very specific agenda of manipulating the allied governments which diverged radically from all the others.

      For those who believe that the Nuremberg Trials revealed the truth about German war crimes, it is a bracing shock to discover that the then Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, Harlan Fiske Stone, described the Nuremberg court as "a high-grade lynching party for Germans."

      MWM: This quote is the final bottom line which will be widely read in the history books in 2100. Since the entire purpose of the Nuremberg court was to liquidate German leadership (and Germany) by pinning the crime of the Holocaust on them, Stone's assessment pertains to the entire legend of the holocaust, which perhaps is more appropriately label the holohoax.


      We've all seen "The Photographs." Endlessly. Newsreel photos taken by U.S. and British photographers at the liberation of the German camps, and especially the awful scenes at Dachau, Buchenwald and Bergen-Belsen. These films are typically presented in such a way in which it is either stated or implied that the scenes resulted from deliberate policies on the part of the Germans. The photographs are real. The uses to which they have been put are base.

      There was no German policy at any of those camps to deliberately kill the internees. In the last months of the war, while Soviet armies were advancing on Germany from the east, the British and U.S. air arms were destroying every major city in Germany with saturation bombing. Transportation, the food distribution system and medical and sanitation services all broke down. That was the purpose of the Allied bombing, which has been described as the most barbarous form of warfare in Europe since the Mongol invasions.

      Millions of refugees fleeing the Soviet armies were pouring into Germany. The camps still under German control were overwhelmed with internees from the east. By early 1945 the inmate population was swept by malnutrition and by epidemics of typhus, typhoid, dysentery and chronic diarrhea. Even the mortuary systems broke down. When the press entered the camps with British and U.S. soldiers, they found the results of all that. They took "The Photographs."

      Still, at camps such as Buchenwald, Dachau and Bergen-Belsen TENS OF THOUSANDS of relatively healthy internees were liberated. They were there in the camps when "The Photographs" were taken. There are newsreels of those internees walking through the camp streets laughing and talking. Others picture exuberant internees throwing their caps in the air and cheering their liberators. It is only natural to ask why you haven't seen those particular films and photos while you've seen the others scores and even hundreds of times.

      Spokesmen for the Holocaust Lobby like to assure us that there are "tons" of captured German documents which prove the Jewish genocide. When challenged on this, however, they can produce only a handful of documents, the authenticity or interpretation of which is always highly questionable. If pressed for reliable documentation, the Lobby will then reverse itself and claim that the Germans destroyed all of the relevant documents to hide their evil deeds, or it will make the absurd claim that the Germans used a simplistic code language or whispered verbal orders for mass murder into each others' ears.

      With regard to the alleged genocide of the European Jews, all available documentation indicates that there was no order for it, no budget, no weapon (that is, no so-called execution gas chamber) and no victim (that is, not a single autopsied body at any camp has been shown to have been gassed).


      As documentary "proofs" for the mass-murder of the European Jews fall by the wayside, Holocaust historians depend increasingly on "eye- witness" testimonies to support their theories. Many of these testimonies are ludicrously unreliable. History is filled with stories of masses of people claiming to be eyewitnesses to everything from witchcraft to flying saucers.

      During and after the war there were "eyewitnesses" to mass murder in gas chambers at Buchenwald, Bergen-Belsen, Dachau and other camps in Germany proper. Today, virtually all recognized scholars dismiss this eyewitness testimony as false, and agree that there were no extermination gas chambers in any camp in Germany proper.

      Establishment historians, however, still claim that extermination gas chambers existed at Auschwitz and at other camps in Poland. The eyewitness testimony and the evidence for this claim is, in reality, qualitatively no different than the false testimony and evidence for the alleged gas chambers at the camps in Germany proper.

      During the war crimes trials many "eyewitnesses" testified that Germans made soap out of human fat and lamp shades from human skin. Allied prosecutors even produced evidence to support these charges. For decades, highly respected scholars at the most prestigious universities in the Western world sanctioned these stories, leading us to believe that they were "irrefutable truths." But with time, many such stories have become untenable, and in May 1990 Yehuda Bauer, director of Holocaust studies at Hebrew University in Tel Aviv, admitted that: "The Nazis never made soap from Jews . . ."(quoted in The Jerusalem Post, International Edition, 5 May 1990, p. 6). This is only one recent example where an "irrefutable" Holocaust "truth" has been exposed as a monstrous lie.

      With regard to confessions by Germans at war crimes trials, it is now well documented that many were obtained through coercion, intimidation and even physical torture.


      British Historian David Irving, perhaps the most widely read historian writing in English, has called the Auschwitz death-camp story a "sinking ship" and states that there were "no gas chambers at Auschwitz . . ."

      The Auschwitz State Museum has recently revised its half-century-old claim that 4 million humans were murdered there. The Museum now says maybe it was 1 million. But what proof does the Museum provide to document the 1 million figure? None! The communist propagandists who manage the museum have put on display piles of hair, boots and eyeglasses, etc. While such displays are effective propaganda devices, they are worthless as historical documentation for "gassings" or a program of "extermination."

      Meanwhile, Revisionists want to know where those 3 million souls have been the last 45 years. Were they part of the fabled Six Million?

      Those who promote the Holocaust story complain that "the whole world" was indifferent to the genocide which allegedly was occurring in German occupied Europe. When asked why this was the case the promoters usually respond by saying that it was due to some great moral flaw in the nature of Western man. At other times they make the absurd claim that people did not realize the enormity of what was happening. It is true that the world responded with indifference. How else should people have responded to that which they did not believe, and which for them was a non-event?

      It is certain that if there had been "killing factories" in Poland murdering millions of civilians, then the Red Cross, the Pope, humanitarian agencies, the Allied governments, neutral governments, and prominent figures such as Roosevelt, Truman, Churchill, Eisenhower and many others would have known about it and would have often and unambiguously mentioned it, and condemned it. They didn't! The promoters admit that only a tiny group of individuals believed the story at the time -- many of whom were connected with Jewish propaganda agencies. The rise of the Holocaust story reads more like the success story of a PR campaign than anything else.

      Winston Churchill wrote the six volumes of his monumental work, The Second World War, without mentioning a program of mass-murder and genocide. Maybe it slipped his mind. Dwight D. Eisenhower, in his memoir Crusade in Europe, also failed to mention gas chambers. Was the weapon used to murder millions of Jews unworthy of a passing reference? Was our future president being insensitive to Jews?


      Many people, when they first hear Holocaust Revisionist arguments, find themselves bewildered. The arguments appear to make sense, but "How is it possible?" The whole world believes the Holocaust story. It's just not plausible that so great a conspiracy to suppress the truth could have functioned for half a century.

      To understand how it could very well have happened, one needs only to reflect on the intellectual and political orthodoxies of medieval Europe, or those of Nazi Germany or the Communist-bloc countries. In all of these societies the great majority of scholars were caught up in the existing political culture. Committed to a prevailing ideology and its interpretation of reality, these scholars and intellectuals felt it was their right, and even their duty, to protect every aspect of that ideology. They did so by oppressing the evil dissidents who expressed "offensive" or "dangerous" ideas. In every one of those societies, scholars became Thought Police.

      In our own society, in the debate over the question of political correctness, there are those who deliberately attempt to trivialize the issues. They claim that there is no real problem with freedom of speech on our campuses, and that all that is involved with PC are a few rules which would defend minorities from those who would hurt their feelings. There is, of course, a deeper and more serious aspect to the problem. On American campuses today there is a wide range of ideas and viewpoints that are forbidden to be discussed openly. Even obvious facts and realities, when they are politically unacceptable, are denied and suppressed. One can learn much about the psychology and methodology of Thought Police by watching how they react when just one of their taboos is broken and Holocaust Revisionism is given a public forum.

      First they express outrage that such offensive and dangerous ideas were allowed to be expressed publicly. They avoid answering or debating these ideas, claiming that to do so would give them a forum and legitimacy. Then they make vicious personal attacks against the Revisionist heretic, calling him dirty political names such as "anti- Semite," "racist" or "neo-Nazi," and they even suggest that he is a potential mass murderer. They publicly accuse the Revisionist of lying, but they don't allow the heretic to hear the specific charge against him or to face his accusers so that he can answer this slander.

      The Holocausters accuse Revisionists of being hate filled people who are promoting a doctrine of hatred. But Revisionism is a scholarly process, not a doctrine or ideology. If the Holocaust promoters really want to expose hatred, they should take a second look at their own doctrines, and a long look at themselves in the mirror.

      Anyone on campus who invites a Revisionist to speak is himself attacked as being insensitive. When a Revisionist does speak on campus he is oftentimes shouted down and threatened. Campus libraries and bookstores face intimidation when they consider handling Holocaust revisionist materials. All this goes on while the majority of faculty and university administrators sit dumbly by, allowing political activists to determine what can be said and what can be read on their campus.

      Next, the Thought Police set out to destroy the transgressor professionally and financially by "getting" him at his job or concocting a lawsuit against him. The courts are sometimes used to attack Revisionism. The Holocausters often deceptively claim that Revisionist scholarship has been proven false during a trial. The fact is that Revisionist arguments have never been evaluated or judged by the courts.

      Finally, the Thought Police try to "straighten out" that segment of academia or the media that allowed the Revisionists a forum in the first place.

      It can be an instructive intellectual exercise to identify taboo subjects, other than Holocaust Revisionism, which would evoke comparable responses from Thought Police on our campuses.

      Recently, some administrators in academia have held that university administrations should take actions to rid the campus of ideas which are disruptive to the university. This is a very dangerous position for administrators to take. It is an open invitation to tyranny. It means that any militant group with "troops at the ready" can rid the campus of ideas it opposes and then impose its own orthodoxy. The cowardly administrator finds it much easier and safer to rid the campus of controversial ideas than to face down a group of screaming and snarling militants. But it is the duty of university administrators to insure that the university remains a free marketplace of ideas. When ideas cause disruptions, it is the disrupters who must be subdued, not the ideas.


      The influence of Holocaust Revisionism is growing steadily both here and abroad. In the United States, Revisionism was launched in earnest in 1977 with the publication of the book The Hoax of the Twentieth Century by Arthur R. Butz. Professor Butz teaches electrical engineering and computer sciences at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.

      Those who take up the Revisionist cause represent a wide spectrum of political and philosophical positions. They are certainly not the scoundrels, liars and demons the Holocaust Lobby tries to make them out to be. The fact is, there are no demons in the real world. People are at their worst when they begin to see their opponents as an embodiment of evil, and then begin to demonize them. Such people are preparing to do something simply awful to their opponents. Their logic is that you can do anything you want to a demon.

      That logic will not succeed.

      Auschwitz Director Comes Clean About Fraudulent "Gas Chamber"

      An exclusive videotape interview Debunks a major part of the "Holocaust" story, and reveals the deception that is STILL GOING ON. . . !

      This is a video that will make you ask -- "Just how much of the 'Holocaust' story can we believe?" -- as you learn of falsified "proofs" and deceptive claims about "gas chambers," not from the mouths of Holocaust "revisionists" but in the words of one of the most knowledgeable and ardent supporters of the orthodox "Holocaust" story. This is a video that affirms what revisionists have maintained for years: that the Soviets and Poles made a practice of "creating" proofs of "homicidal gas chambers" AFTER World War Two, and that the hundreds of thousands of tourists who journey to Auschwitz each year to see for themselves proof of the "final solution" are being deceived.

      In this unprecedented interview given to Jewish revisionist David Cole, (who has debated the "Holocaust" nationally on the Montel Williams Show and has been profiled by CBS' 48 Hours), Dr. Franciszek Piper, Senior Curator and Director of Archives at the Auschwitz State Museum states on camera that the alleged "homicidal gas chamber" at the Auschwitz main camp shown off to tourists from all over the world as being in its "original state" is, in fact, a RECONSTRUCTION, redesigned AFTER THE WAR to look like a gas chamber.

      Dr. Piper reveals to David Cole, on camera, how walls were knocked down and holes with "Zyklon B induction chimneys" installed in the roof so that the building could be exhibited as a "proof" of the "final solution." And he doesn't stop there. For a solid hour Dr. Piper talks about other "proofs" at Auschwitz for the "final solution" which are ALSO "reconstructions," and discusses details of the camp that only a man such as he, who has worked at Auschwitz for a quarter century, would know. Then, in stunning footage, you'll see David Cole, while on the official tour of Auschwitz, being told by his guide that the Auschwitz main-camp "gas chamber" is in its ORIGINAL STATE, the same -- and there's no other word for it -- lie told to all tourists. The uncomfortable conclusion cannot be avoided: the people who run Auschwitz tell people things that THEY THEMSELVES KNOW ARE NOT TRUE!

      Will you be able to argue with the words of a respected "Holocaust" scholar when he states for the record that one of the main "proofs" of the "final solution" is NO PROOF AT ALL?
