Here's something for our exterminationist friends to applaud.  According
to a feature story last Saturday's Toronto Globe and Mail, "German
parliamentarians yesterday passes a law making it illegal to deny the
murder of more than six million Jews by the Nazis.  
... 

Says Frankfurt lawyer Michael Friedman, a board member of the Jewish
Communities of Germany: 'The law has two functions: one is to strengthen
an old law, making it much more difficult to continue openly saying these
things. [And] it has an educational input.  Is is necessary in a
democratic country to know that the denying of Auschwitz offends the
spirit of the state and the society.' " 

Das ist die Demokratie?

Yeah, but when you have a real historical character, Amon Goeth, in 
the movie, you expect his more memorable scenes to have some relation to 
reality.  It ain't necessarily so.  I quote from Dan Gannon's post:

     THE CAMP IN THE MOVIE, RE-BUILT FROM DESCRIPTIONS OF ALLEGED
EYE-WITNESSES, is surrounded by a steep hill so it is not visible from
outside, where inmates are shot by Commander Goeth from the front balcony of
his house on a hill above the barracks.  The movie version is surrounded by
a steep hillside that prevented outsiders from seeing inmates.  Commander
Goeth, on his front balcony, is seen shooting working and relaxing inmates
beside the barracks in the inmates' camp.  [See file 1.GIF]

     1994 AIR PHOTOS SHOW the camp was visible through wire fences from 3
villages.  Goeth could not have shot inmates from his house balcony, as the
house was at the bottom of a hill and he COULD NOT SEE OVER OR AROUND THE
HILL INTO THE INMATES' CAMP.  The camp was located next to Cracow city,
beside a major roadway, and was visible from hundreds of houses in 3
surrounding villages.  [See file 2.GIF]

Let me butt in. Why was NO effort made at the end of the war to prove the 
ridiculous claims about Auschwitz?  WHY did we take the word of the 
Russians, the champion mass-murderers of all times, who would as soon lie 
as look at you?  Instead, the western allies attempted, as it were, to 
climb on the band wagon by claiming that Dachau, Buchenwald, et. al. were 
also extermination camps.

I admit what I've heard is largely word-of-mouth, but I've also been told 
that some of these crimes perpetrated by foreigners, mainly Turks and 
Kurds, against Germans and against each other, have actually made the 
papers. I'll see what I can dig up.

Actually he said "not neo-Nazi, Nazi stuff.  There's a big difference." He
sells the Nazi stuff more to make money than for its propaganda value. 
seeing no reason why he shouldn't get a piece of the Nazi memorabilia
business, which is largely run by Jews, as documented in a recent article
in the NY Times Magazine. 

As for the distinction between "neo-Nazi" and "Nazi", Zuendel finds the
neo-Nazi youths in Germany who adopt the trappings of a bygone era rather
silly.  He has a similar attitude toward to KKK.

>Zundel sells, for instance, cassettes with songs of the "Hitler

>God and is the coauthor of "The Hitler We Loved and Why". 

In Michael Hoffman's book, "The Great Holocaust Trial", Institute for
Historical Review, 1985, about Zundel's trial in Toronto in that year on
the charge of knowingly spreading false news, Hoffman writes about the
matter of the book, "The Hitler We Loved and Why".  On page 72 Hoffman
explained how at a certain stage of that trial the prosecuting attorney,
Griffiths, turned to the book we are discussing. Griffiths wanted to
establish that Zundel's politics as revealed in the book in question show
him to be a neo-Nazi. Griffiths also wanted to show Zundel used Holocaust
Revisionism as a vehicle to make Nazism respectable again. The larger
point, that Zundel wants to make Nazism respectable again, may be true,
but Zundel does not take credit for the book. According to Hoffman, Zundel
provided photographs for the book, and the moniker "Christof Friedrich"
assigned as the author was used by American publisher George Dietz instead
of his own. Dietz was the author according to Zundel and Hoffman, and
Dietz to my knowledge has never denied his authorship of the book. A
question anti-Nazis may respond to is whether one's opinions alone should
be enough to land one in jail. During the Spanish Inquisition it was
accepted by Spanish society as fit and proper for heretics to be burnt at
the stake for attempting to pervert and lead astray the immortal souls of
the people. Today it is the idealogical unity, and other forms of unity,
that leaders of the anti-Nazi/anti-racist/anti-Revisionist crowd want to
preserve at the cost of the truth about the gas chambers, the true purpose
of the concentration camps, and to the liberty of the telling of the plain
truth about these matters. The anti-Revisionists are either too
indoctrinated in the false historical myths invented by the anti-Nazi
propagandists to see the truth about these things, or they are too blinded
by their hatred of the Nazis to be open minded about these things, or they
are politically motivated like the anti-Nazi propagandists to deny the
truth and fight against any telling of the truth. The argument that Zundel
is either a Nazi or too friendly to Nazis is about on the level with "he's
a Jew or a Jew-lover and nothing he says can possibly be true." If that's
the kind of argument you are making, it seems to be a very convenient
method of cutting all discussion about the details and accusations. It
also seems to be an appeal to prejudice and party spirit--not to a careful
analysis of the evidence without fear or favor to any side. 

Do you say you want the truth about the gas chambers, the Final Solution
to the Jewish Problem, and the concentration camps? You can prove your
claim of wanting the truth by examining the details involved, and by
allowing every argument and explanation to be made and given full
opportunity to be explored and told. The hostile attitude toward Holocaust
Revisionism that is so common is the result of a reluctance to examine
even- handedly without prejudice the facts involved. To resolutely refuse
to consider arguments against the Extermination Thesis does not appear to
me to be the sign of an open minded person untouched by party feeling.

I didn't do it.  I just turned over my terminal to Arthur for so he could
a guest posting, since he seemed to know about "The Hitler We Loved and
Why."  I didn't censor what he was writing.  Indeed, I didn't even read it
before I posted it.  Therefore I disclaim any responsibility for its
content. 

It is interesting, however, that  no one seems to have taken note of the 
main point of Arthur's post, namely that Zuendel was NOT the co-author of 
the above-mentioned book.

Make that  "revisionist." The state-side revisionists I know are 
appalled at the notion of censorship, in any way, shape or fashion.

I don't agree with Zuendel's racial philosophy.  
Multi-ethnic/multi-ethnic societies have their pluses as well as their 
minuses. I think it would be kind of dull living in a racially 
homogeneous society.  As for blaming the non-whites for how the U.S. has 
been slipping, I think the real cause of our national decline is the 
absolutely insane economic policies of the federal government, which has 
been letting basic industries get destroyed over the last thirty years 
without lifting a finger to save them.  No other major industrial power 
on the face of the earth has a trade policy as benighted as ours.
But all this belongs in alt.new-world-order.

Getting back to Zuendel, he's done more to get the revisionist message 
out than all the rest of the people in the movement put together. 

All through his prolonged persecution he's been playing by the rules
with regards to the various legal restrictions placed on him by Germany
and Canada: suspension of mailing privileges, injunction on talking about
the Holocaust while his convictions were being appealed, restrictions on
travel, and God knows what else.

The beautiful thing about it is that he finally won!  A triumph for freedom, 
especially free speech.  Almost makes you want to believe in the system.

As for the secret Nazi bases in the Arctic, I figure that was just 
a posture he adopted for a while to get his foot in the door of radio and 
TV talk shows.  He received considerable criticism at the time from 
others in the revisionist movement for going off on this tangent, I 
understand.  (That was before my time (Before Leuchter)).

The article's emphasis is on the ethnicity of the collectors, not of the 
dealers, so I admit to gratuitously assuming that the dealers tend to be 
Jewish, too.

Only two dealers, per se, are mentioned in the article, one Jewish
and the other apparently Italian.

A couyple of excerpts:

"The most unsettling impulse may also be the most banal: a desire for 
profit. "I've always considered this better than the stock market," 
Hasher said.  Many items that entered the United States as wartime 
souvenirs are increasing in value by about 20% a year. "Selling it is 
like selling your children," Hasher laments. "But my intention is to sell 
a bundle and travel the world for my retirement."

"Quite honestly, most of collectors happen to be Jewish," says Newman, 
who is Jewish himself."  But he says he's not rattled by combative 
questions about why he sells what he does.  "It's my business - it's 
merchandise," he answers.  "I say, 'If you find it offensive, I'd advise 
you to purchase it.  I'll supply you the matches and you can take it into 
the bathroom and burn it. '"
