Remembering the Russian Crime at Katyn

This week, Russian lawmakers passed a bill that would make Holocaust revisionism illegal.  The bill introduces criminal charges for “denying facts” established by the Nuremberg tribunal regarding the crimes of the Axis powers, as well as “disseminating false information about Soviet actions” during the war.  Punishment for such violations would range from a fine of 300,000 rubles ($9,230) and up to five years imprisonment.

While time is expected to reduce the emotions surrounding war, the Second World War is an exception.  The myths of the past are being canonized not only into popular expression but into law itself.  The Soviet Union’s atrocities during this period rarely fall under scrutiny.

The Passing of Joseph Bellinger

Joseph P. Bellinger (1949-2013)

In the middle of March, I was informed of the passing of Joseph P. Bellinger. The old adage “bad news travels fast” proved to be inaccurate. Bellinger, who was born on 13 September 1949 had passed away on 20 October 2013 after a long battle with throat cancer.

While Joe may be best remembered as the author of Himmlers Tod. Freitod oder Mord? Die letzten Tage des Reichsführers-SS, I remember him as a friend.  A true book enthusiast and collector of historical volumes, Joe was instrumental in obtaining a nearly complete set of David McCalden’s Revisionist Newsletter for me. Joe was also very enthusiastic about the idea that resulted in Inconvenient History. From 2009 through 2013 he served as a member of our Editorial Advisory Board.

Remembering Paul Rassinier (18 March 1906 – 29 July 1967)

Paul Rassinier

Paul Rassinier (1906-1967)

Today is the birthday of Paul Rassinier, widely considered to be the father of Holocaust revisionism.  Rassinier’s background and experiences topple the widely held stereotypes of Holocaust revisionists; he was a Holocaust survivor, a member of the French Resistance, and a Socialist member of the French assembly.

Rassinier participated in the founding of the Libre-Nord organization during the German occupation of France.  This organization resisted Nazi rule by, among other things, smuggling Jewish refugees over the Franco-Swiss border into Switzerland. As a result of his activities, Rassinier was arrested by German authorities who had him deported to the concentration camp at Buchenwald. He was later moved from Buchenwald to the camp at Dora where he survived through the end of the war.

Dr. Mengele’s “Medical Experiments” was our most read article of 2013.

To say that 2013 was a great year for Inconvenient History  (IH) would be putting it mildly.  While accolades have been made about the quality of our materials, the proof is in the proverbial pudding (as they say.)  Throughout the year, some 58,729 people visited the IH Website.  This represents a 40.95% increase over 2012.   Over 172,700 pages were viewed which represents a 19.31% increase over the prior year. Our single best day ever was December 14th, when some 4,206 pages were accessed.

For those of you with a technical bent, the most popular browsers for reading IH are: Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari.

Letter to the American Library Association on the 60th Anniversary of the Publication of Fahrenheit 451

Fahrenheit 451

The ALA should read F451

To Whom It May Concern,

I take this moment on the anniversary of the publication of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 to make you aware of a chilling campaign to ban books and limit freedom of expression.

I have learned this morning of a campaign by the World Jewish Congress (WJC) to stop the online bookseller Amazon.com from selling several titles due to what the WJC deems offensive content.  Specifically the WJC has identified several titles on-sale that they assert promote “anti-Semitism,” “Holocaust Denial,” and “White Supremacy.”  You may find the story here: http://www.jwire.com.au/news/amazon-anti-semitism-and-holocaust-denial/37750

When we speak of banned books however, we always speak of “offensive books.”

The Syrian issue and its implications

Print This Post Print This Post

By  Wilfried Heink-

Looking at the events as they unfolded regarding Syria, one wonders what this is really all about.

The “No” vote by the British Parliament is viewed as a return to law and order, ‘The people have spoken’. Obama then backtracked with Putin finally offering him a way out. All of this looks good, some are celebrating, claiming that the forces of evil are in retreat. Unlikely, the “New World Order Project” is still alive and well, this may have been planned or was just a glitch along the way. The concept of a One World Government is centuries old, Freemasonry tried to make wars impossible by supporting the idea of a world without nation states, i.e., a One World. (Read more…)

How to ‘investigate’ the Holocaust, or: How not to do a proper investigation.

Print This Post Print This Post

By Wilfried Heink-

Recently I came across an article by Dr. Caroline Sturdy Colls, titled: Holocaust Archaeology: Archaeological Approaches to Landscapes of Nazi Genocide and Persecution (Journal of Conflict Archaeology Vol. 7, No. 2, 2012, 70-104)

http://tinyurl.com/l8sv5lm

Dr. Sturdy Colls latest archaeological undertaking was centered on Treblinka, the “Nazi” camp in Poland where some 800,000 Jews had allegedly been murdered by the Germans. As the title suggests, this is not about Treblinka per se, although she refers to the transit camp on the 20th page of her article (it starts on p.70 in the journal, Treblinka is on p.90), but promises that details will follow when she writes:

It is not the intention to discuss at length the individual features recorded, as these will be presented elsewhere (Sturdy Colls, in prep; 2011), but to provide an overview of the results gained in order to demonstrate their implications for studies of this period.”(Ibid)

So we wait with baited breath for that presentation, in the meantime, a few observation on her article. Dr. Sturdy Colls starts out with: (Read more…)

Publish the Rosenberg Diaries

Print This Post Print This Post

Alfred Rosenberg

Alfred Rosenberg (1893-1946)

Recent news accounts tell how the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) have located the long-lost diary of Alfred Rosenberg.  While it is certainly surprising, to me at least, that ICE and Homeland Security spend their time looking for lost documents from the Second World War, the discovery is certainly of interest to historians and those interested in National Socialist Germany and the Holocaust.

The diary of Rosenberg, who served as Reichsministerium für die besetzten Ostgebiete (Reich Minister for the Occupied Eastern Territories) has been missing since the Nuremberg trials.  News accounts suggest that researchers will find a vast treasure-trove of new information regarding the Holocaust, but will they?I suspect that the story will quietly disappear after no bomb-shells or even evidence of a program to murder Europe’s Jews is discovered within the diary’s pages.  There may be a minor discovery based on a tortured translation, but nothing more.  The diaries will then likely be sealed up and only allowed review under the watchful eye of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum lest anyone reveal some inconvenient history.
