The Holocaust Historiography Project

What’s New with the HHP

The truth hurts

Tuesday, February 14, 2006

A planned conference by the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) imploded Wednesday after the group distributed to attendees an "anti-Semitic" article entitled, "The Jewish Declaration of War on Nazi Germany.” Wouldn't you think that a group of university professors would be able to answer any claims made, if the claims were false? Maybe the real problem is that Judea did declare war on Germany shortly after Adolf Hitler came to power.


Prof. Art Butz, master of the universe

Monday, February 13, 2006

An attack on Art Butz in the February 13 Daily Northwestern, implies that Dr. Butz can unleash violent forces by disagreeing with the traditional version of the Holocaust extermination myth. Of course, the members of the religious faculty at Northwestern who signed this ad, fail (as always) to identify even one area in which Dr. Butz is incorrect, although they did manage to find space to say that Butz makes false claims, promotes fraud, and allies himself with the forces of hate. (Our guess is that "forces of hate" is not a reference to Al Franken, Barbara Streisand, and Rosie O'Donnell.)


Send us your Holocaust cartoons

Saturday, February 11, 2006

Tehran's Hamshahri newspaper has launched a competition to find the 12 "best" cartoons about the Holocaust. We're not that picky: Send us your Holocaust cartoons and we'll publish each of them ... no limit. It would be especially nice to get copies of the old Konk cartoons that deal with the Holocaust issue. Be certain to send attribution with each cartoon you send.


Holocaust denial at the Auschwitz Museum

Thursday, February 02, 2006

The Auschwitz Museum has published a report reducing the death toll at Majdanek to 78,000 or so. Interestingly, they are "revising" the death toll from what they claim was the "established" total of 400,000 or fewer, and not from the death toll of 1.5 million that was common knowledge for many years. No mention yet on whether or not this reduces the six-million figure (we guess it won't), nor whether there are any plans now to recall the thousands of books taking the U.S. to task for not believing stories in the New York Times about the 1.5 million deaths at Majdanek.

We're not holding our breath.
