It is from "Special Edition" October 1990, from the ADL, and it is a part of the article, "Holocaust 'Revisionsim': Denial of History". This section deals with the IHR, and although I intend to +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Institute for Historical Review IHR was the brainchild of anti-Semite Willis A. Carto, founder and "treasurer" of the extremist propaganda organization, Liberty Lobby. Self-explanatory titles from the IHR catalog include French writer Robert Faurisson's _The Rumor of Auschwitz_; _Did Six Million Really Die?_ by Richard Harwood (pseudonym of British neo-fascist Richard Verral); and a "revisionist" mainstay, _The Hoax of the Twentieth Century_ by Arthur Butz, a professor of engineering at Northwestern University. _The Spotlight_, Liberty Lobby's weekly tabloid, allots a good deal of coverage to IHR's activities. Annual IHR meetings, cloaked in secrecy, are forums for bizzare theories and for addresses similar to Willis Carto's at the 1982 covention. Carto asserted that Zionists are "predators" who exploit the "guilt" of Western Society for "the building of God's promised land for God's chosen people with our tax money." At the same convention the IHR publicly offered a $50,000 "reward" for "proof" that the Nazis had operated gas chambers for the extermination of the Jews during World War II. The offer plunged the IHR into costly litigation with Mel Mermelstein of California, a survivor who answered IHR's challenge. Subsequently, IHR agreed to pay Mr. Mermelstein $90,000 in an out-of-court settlement.
