Otto von Bismarck

Revisionism should start with Bismarck’s reunification of Germany in 1871

Widmann: For readers who may not know you, could you explain how you first became involved in historical revisionism?

Heink: I was born in 1937, in Germany, a long story and not the issue here. In 1959 my wife and I, along with our 1-year-old son, moved to Canada. At first, World War II was still being fought when talking to Canadians, with “The Holocaust” creeping in only later. I was young and busy trying to make a living, and really had no reason to doubt the official version – what is presented as history. But this constant “Germany responsible for all the ills” started to grate on me, and having opted to get out of the rat race, I moved to a small village where I decided to take a closer look. That was in 1982. By then, the letters to the editor of a German newspaper published in Canada made me think doubts as to the veracity of the official version had crept in, The communist empire collapsed; it had failed to bring about the “One World Government” and had therefore become useless. Shortly thereafter I read in that German paper that the Auschwitz death toll, mostly Jews we were told, had been reduced from 4 million to 1.5 million, at first; it now stands at 1.1 million. I still remember when I read this and where I was, for I was sure that now investigations will be undertaken, for if 2.5 million people, mostly Jews, can be misplaced, where else have mistakes been made?

The Precedent of the Spanish-American War

Sinking of the Maine used to incite war hysteria

Sinking of the Maine used to incite war hysteria

April 25th marked the anniversary of the Spanish-American War. While barely a notice appeared in the American media, the Spanish-American War of 1898 was instrumental in transforming the United States into an empire. It also established a precedent for the subsequent conflicts of the 20th Century in that the media played a major role in disseminating propaganda intended to rouse public support for war.

In early 1898 President McKinley sent the USS Maine to Havana to protect American interests during the long-standing revolt of the Cubans against the Spanish government. On the evening of 15 February, a mysterious explosion suddenly blew up the Maine. Nearly three-quarters of the battleship’s crew died as a result of the explosion. The immediate assumption was that the sinking of the Maine and the deaths of 260 sailors was the result of Spanish treachery.

ADL Outs another False-Flag Attack

Letter distributed to Jews in Donetsk, Ukraine, April 2014

Abe Foxman, venerable head of the Anti-Defamation League, hasn’t exposed many false-flag attacks during his long career, but a peculiar echo of the Holocaust in eastern Ukraine has drawn just such a reaction from him.

It’s Byzantine. As this article details, Jews exiting a synagogue in Donetsk this Pesach just past were handed an ominous letter apparently from the local Russia-favoring militia instructing them to register with the local government as Jews (no report of anyone attempting to do so has surfaced as yet).

Dr. Henri Roques has died

Henri Roques (1920-2014)

On 16 March 2014, Dr. Henri Roques died.  Roques, who was 93 at the time of his death, had spent a week in the hospital having been admitted for a double pulmonary embolism.

Roques was born in Lyon on 10 November 1920. A revisionist pioneer, he became interested in revisionism in 1955, when he discovered Le Mensonge d’Ulysse (The Lie of Ulysses) by Paul Rassinier. Roques began to correspond with Rassinier and remained friends with him until his death in 1967.

Remembering the Russian Crime at Katyn

RIAN archive 897469 Handover of Katyn forest massacre materials to Poland

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.”
