                        A REVISIONIST'S VIEW OF THE
                       U.S. HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM
                            IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

                            By Bradley R. Smith

     After ten years in the planning, $165 million in start-up costs and a
government guarantee of tens of millions more in tax subsidies, the United
States Holocaust Memorial Museum demonstrates why, according to a Roper
Organization poll, 22 percent (some 25 millions!) of all adult Americans
have doubts about the orthodox Holocaust story.

                            What are the facts?

     The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum displays no proof anywhere of
homicidal "gassing" chambers and no proof that even ONE INDIVIDUAL was
"gassed" at any camp liberated by Allied armies.

     "Proof" for a gas chamber at Birkenau is a plastic model created by a
Polish ARTISTE.  A plastic copy of a metal door is displayed as "proof" of a
homicidal gas chamber at Maidanek.  And, INCREDIBLY, the Museum has simply
"dropped" the Auschwitz gas chamber, the basement room visited yearly by
hundreds of thousands of tourists in Poland.

     There is no mention of the alleged gas chambers at Buchenwald or even
at Dachau, where after World War Two American G.I.s and German civilians
were assured that more than 200,000 victims were "gassed and burned."

     Human soap?  Human skin lamp shades?  Not a sign of them in this
Museum.  These monstrous lies are now all gone -- straight down the memory

     The notion that eyewitness testimony given under highly politicized and
emotional circumstances, which this museum relies so heavily on, is, PRIMA
FACIE, true, was refuted by the Israeli Supreme Court when it acquitted John
Demjanjuk of being "Ivan the Terrible."  The Israeli Court found that the
eyewitnesses who testified against Demjanjuk could not be believed!

     Deborah Lipstadt argues in her much-praised _Denying the Holocaust_,
that revisionists ["deniers"] should not be debated because there "can not
be" another side to the Holocaust story.  She charges that it is "hateful"
to listen to a defense of those accused of mass murder!  In essence, she
argues that we bury America's old civil virtues of free inquiry and open
debate -- but to what end?

     The Deborah Lipstadts -- and there is a clique of them on every campus
-- work to suppress revisionist research and demand that students and
faculty ape their fascist behavior.  If you refuse to accept the Lipstadt
clique as your intellectual FUHRERS, you risk being slandered as an
"anti-semite."  These quasi religious Holocaust zealots claim that because
of the "purity" of their own feelings about the Jewish experience during
World War Two, yours are soiled if you doubt what they preach as "truth."

     Winston Churchill, in his massive six-volume history of World War Two,
and Dwight D. Eisenhower in his memoirs, both omitted all reference to "gas
chambers" and their use in an alleged "genocide" of the Jews.  How do the
Museum and the Deborah Lipstadts explain that?

     To many it will appear impossible that deception on such a grand scale
can actually be taking place.  Yet such deception is not unusual in the
realms of politics, ideology or religion.  We are being deceived for one
reason, and one reason only -- we have refused to listen to the other side
of the story.

                 The Operation and Technique of the Museum

     The Museum's exhibit technique is a mixture of sinister suggestion and
dishonest omission.  The first display confronting visitors beginning the
Museum tour is a wall-sized photograph of American soldiers looking at
corpses smoldering on a pyre.  The "context" in which you see the photo
suggests that the dead are "exterminated" Jews.

     But were the prisoners killed or did they die of typhus or some other
disease during the last terrible weeks of the war?  Autopsies made by Allied
medical personnel found that inmates died of disease.  Not one was found to

     Unable to judge the significance of the photograph, and not wanting to
believe the Museum would mislead you, you are moved to accept the false and
manipulative suggestion that it represents the "genocide" of the Jews.

                              THE LAST BARRIER

     Academic bureaucrats, career-driven professors and an opulent Holocaust
Lobby of self-described intellectual "giants" are those who form the last
barrier against a free exchange of ideas.  It is childish and dishonest to
insinuate that open debate is "dangerous" to the Jewish community.  Don't
believe it!  Open debate BENEFITS Jews and Gentiles alike -- for precisely
the same reasons!
