The Nizkor Project: Remembering the Holocaust (Shoah)

Beyond the Bombing:


Small militias have formed in Alaska. Despite their modest size, the groups have caused concern among observers. An Anchorage attorney and board member of the National Rifle Association has called some of the militias "extremely dangerous."

Alaskan militias are connected to the national militia movement via computers. The electronic bulletin board services "AmeriKa" and "Back Woods," based in Anchorage. provide users with conspiracy literature -- including articles by Linda Thompson (see Indiana) and on topics ranging from "NATO and U.S. Join Together For Total Civilian Disarmament" to "Why the British Had To Kill Abraham Lincoln." The bulletin board services also act as forums for users to lambast the purportedly encroaching powers of the federal government.
