Remembering Bradley R. Smith

Bradley R. Smith: (18 Feb 1930 - 18 Feb 2016)

Bradley R. Smith: A Simple Writer (18 Feb 1930 – 18 Feb 2016)

On Thursday evening, 18 February 2016, I glanced at my email on my phone. The subject of a newly received message struck me like a lightning bolt. “Bradley RIP” was all it said. It wasn’t that it was entirely unexpected. Bradley had been ill for many years, fighting off heart ailments, cancer, and even a bullet to the head during the Korean War, but somehow it seemed that Bradley would always be among us.

I first became aware of Bradley in the late 80s. I had discovered him a couple of years after my introduction to Holocaust revisionism. I knew of him through his book, Confessions of a Holocaust Revisionist and the work that he did for the Institute for Historical Review.

Regime Change at the Museum

Print This Post Print This Post

A major regime change happened in the Soviet Union around 1990, after which there remained no Soviet Union as such, but instead Russia and a number of newly sovereign neighbors such as Ukraine. It would have been around this time that a museum/historical site such as Perm-36 became possible, even useful to Russia’s government. Revisionism, ever present in its more-deceitful forms in the USSR, was afoot in Russia on an industrial scale, quite as George Orwell envisioned in 1984.

Museums in the West are funded and operated in some cases by private entities, or even as hybrids like the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, operated by a private entity and funded by the US government. Even though Perm-36, a former GuLag camp near the city of Perm, was run by a “human-rights group,” it seems to have received not only approval but at least some funding from the local regional administration.

No more. The present more “assertive” Russian regime will not abide talk about government repression – perhaps bad news for those who fear government repression. The museum is now closed and “in the process of self-liquidation.” The many museums on – and not on – sites of Holocaust labor and transit camps can be attributed in crucial part to the utter extermination of National Socialism and its governmental apparatus following the invasion and conquest of Germany in 1945. Germany’s erstwhile foes, such as Poland, operate many of these sites, while Germany itself has hosted many such installations in the time since its occupation by the victorious Allies.

Insofar as on-site museums such as Auschwitz, Perm-36, Sachsenhausen and the like are concerned, history comes and history goes – often goes  forever. It is but fleetingly visible at such installations, and but as through a veil, darkly, as the regnant regimes permit and encourage for their own ephemeral purposes. Perhaps the most-similar installation in the US is that at Andersonville, Georgia, a former prisoner-of-war camp operated by the Confederacy, at which far more atrocities were alleged by the victorious Union than in fact occurred. The present displays and interpretations are, at this remove in time, encouragingly free of cant and condemnation.

More self-abnegating are federally sponsored sites such as that of the massacre of indians at Wounded Knee, South Dakota and of even more-recent provenance, National Historic Monuments such as that at Manzanar, California, where Japanese-Americans were interned during World War II. The narrative presented there is sympathetic enough to the captives, considering that it was written by the captors, but they (the captors) could easily afford the gesture: after all, their side not only won, but was never invaded, never occupied, nor ever had atomic bombs dropped on it.

Substantive changes at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum are not to be expected anytime soon. And certainly not “self-liquidation.”

The Perm-36 memorial museum, before “self-liquidation.”

Inconvenient History 2014: The Year in Review

Thomas Dalton’s “The Great Holocaust Mystery” was our most-read article of 2014

As 2014 came to a close, Inconvenient History (www.inconvenienthistory.com) closed the door on its sixth year of activities. In our online journal, we published another 32 articles by some of the leading voices in historical revisionism in the world today. In addition, we printed hardcopy annual of our complete works from 2013. This volume is comprised over 500 pages of revisionist scholarship and continues to sell at a healthy rate through Amazon.com. In addition, another 20 articles were posted to the “Inconvenient History – Independent Revisionist Blog” (http://revblog.codoh.com/ ). Finally many hundreds of news posts were made to Twitter where @inconhistory has accumulated 483 followers. In a typical week our retweet reach can reach over 1,800 people.

Throughout 2014, pages of the Inconvenient History flagship journal were viewed 200,775 times by some 69,378 users. This represents a 15% increase over 2013. Our best day was 3 September when our pages were viewed some 8,542 times. While most of our readership is from the United States, 2014 saw a 105% increase in readership in the United Kingdom, an astounding 472% increase in Australia and a whopping increase of 722% in Canada.

Bone-Crushing Caught on Film!

Print This Post Print This Post

bone_crushing_machineAn alert reader has sent us a color film of concentration-camp inmates operating a machine quite clearly the same as the one examined by our Klaus Schwensen in our Fall 2013 issue!

The scene is in the three seconds between 52:38 min and 52:41 at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBHwOY5nEDQ. Not to spoil it for you, but you’ll note how cunningly the evil Nazi captors have set up a truly convincing “set” to make it appear that the inmates, rather than crushing their co-religionists’ bones to throw righteous post-war prosecutors off the track, are working on building or repairing a road!

I believe even the makers of the film were fooled completely.

Do We (or They) Really Want Them to Know?

Print This Post Print This Post

By Jett Rucker-

Can students handle the truth of inconvenient history?

Can students handle the truth of inconvenient history?

Revisionists may feel an overwhelming sense of irony in noting educational disturbances currently occurring in the conservative bastion in the state of Colorado centered around the city of Golden.

There, reports say, students at two high schools are calling in “sick” and otherwise playing hooky while many of their teachers are doing the same thing.

The students’ cause, it would seem, is proposed revisions to the history curriculum intended to portray public affairs in the American past as more “orderly” (my word – the source is here). The contention centers around recent revision (there’s that word) of the content of the US History Advanced Placement tests (this was done by the College Board, far outside Colorado) that the local school board feels portrays the United States in an unduly critical manner. While much revisionism centers on just such matters, the offending revisions do not touch upon the subject of the Holocaust, another popular subject of revisionism. Pity, that, but the contrary would be much bigger news if it were true, as demonstrated recently in Rialto, California.

Meantime, the teachers’ agenda, like that of other opponents of revisionism, would seem to have powerful ulterior elements – to wit, stormy negotiations between the local teachers’ union and the local school board.

Share a Bench with a Saint of Slaughter

Print This Post Print This Post

By Jett Rucker-

Jan Karski should be given the respect he deserves

Jan Karski monument in Warsaw

On a bronze bench on the Georgetown University campus, looking toward White-Gravenor Hall, sits the bronze effigy of a slim gentleman holding a cane to the ground and gazing beatifically at a chessboard occupying the center of the bench. There’s plenty of room at the opposite end of the bench for would-be friends of (the gentleman represented by) the statue to sit and pose for photographs with an icon of western civilization who truly may be held instrumental in the violent and early deaths of hundreds of thousands of American soldiers along with even greater numbers of Europeans, citizens of his native Poland among them.
