By the time the New Millennium rolled around, Ernst Zundel and I had been engaged for several years in a precarious but emotionally rewarding battle for Freedom of Speech, so poignantly described by Dr. Robert Faurisson, acknowledged “Dean of the Holocaust Deniers” world-wide, as “…. the great intellectual adventure at the end of the Twentieth Century.”
Just as I predicted, “Holocaust-denying” Bishop Richard Williamson lost his appeal in court last week. The verdict did not please either side.
It gives me no pleasure to predict that the Federal Republic of Germany is about to soil itself again to please the Noisy Lobby.
“An estimated 5,000 people have been subjected to detention since 9/11. Of those, only five, three non-citizens and two citizens were charged with terrorism-related crimes, and one was convicted.
Thanks to best-selling author, David Irving, the establishment view that the United States of America became embroiled in World War II as a result of a surprise attack on Pearl Harbour on December 7, 1941 is no longer accepted by major historians.
I happen to believe there is a huge, huge hunger out there for Truth in History – and genuine Truth in History mandates uncompromising intellectual candor about the much-maligned and misjudged era of 1933-1945.
No cheap banality. No platitudes. No carton cut-outs a la Hogan’s Heroes out of the smoking mills of Hollywood. And not the vile poison that the likes of Abe Foxman spew forth!
The Allies could choose to release, hide, or destroy any documents which did not fit their post-war strategy or plans at Nuremberg.
On the eve of the 50th Anniversary of the Nuremberg Trials, it is appropriate that I share with my English-speaking readerships a few reflections pertaining to those trials. I’d like to start with a revealing and thought-provoking quote coming from none other than Nahum Goldman, long-time president of the World Jewish Congress, in a book entitled The Jewish Paradox.
If a German had said in 1945 that within 60 years large numbers of his countrymen would be celebrating the Wehrmacht’s unconditional surrender as “liberation,” his mental state of mind would have been highly suspect.
The legendary German attorney, Horst Mahler, now serving a lifetime sentence for having rushed in bravely where angels fear to tread, called me one merry morning right after my husband was kidnapped by agents of my government to please the Noisy Lobby, and gave me the low-down on this. In Horst’s own words, since tauntingly repeated to much judicial and editorial squirming in several recent thought-crime trials in Germany, including the ghastly show trial that cost Ernst Zundel five years:
In the early 1980s, I was working in the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., doing research for my trilogy called “Lebensraum”, narrating my family’s flight from the Ukraine in 1943 under the protection of the retreating German forces
Years before I met and married Ernst Zundel and, thus, became a Holocaust Denier – because this malady, Denial-of-the-Holocaust, can be infectious, in case you didn’t know! – I made my living as a kiddie shrink: in academic parlance, an Educational Psychologist.
