Impact and Future of Holocaust Revisionism By Robert Faurisson The following is the remark, not of a revisionist, but rather by an anti-revisionist: It effectively means exclusion from civilized humanity. Anyone who is suspected of this is finished.
His public life is destroyed, his academic reputation ruined. And he went on to add: Against the Law Writings such as this essay cannot be sold openly in my country. They must be published and distributed privately.
In France, it is forbidden to question the Shoah -- also called the "Holocaust. More precisely, this law makes it a crime to question "contester" the reality of any of the "crimes against humanity" as defined in and punished in by the judges of the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, a court established exclusively by the victors exclusively to judge the vanquished.
Debates and controversies about the Shoah are, of course, still permitted, but only within the limits set by the official dogma. Controversies or debates that might lead to a challenging of the Shoah story as a whole, or of a part of it, or simply to raise doubt, are forbidden.
During this same period Maya desecration of graves in the Jewish cemetery of Carpentras, in Provence, had given rise to a media furor that nullified any inclination on the part of opposition lawmakers to mount any effective resistance to the bill. In Paris somemarchers, with a host of Israeli flags borne high, demonstrated against "the resurgence of the horrid beast.
Once the law was on the statute books promulgated in the Journal officiel on the 14th of July, the national holiday: Only the "Fabius-Gayssot" Act remained. Under pressure from national and international Jewish organizations, and following the Israeli and French examples, other countries similarly adopted laws forbidding any questioning of the Shoah.
In practice, such specific laws are not absolutely necessary to combat and suppress historical revisionism. In France, as elsewhere, the practice has often been to prosecute questioners of the Shoah under other laws, according to the needs of a given case, on the basis of laws against racism or anti-Semitism, defaming living persons, insulting the memory of the dead, attempting to justify crimes, or spreading false news, and -- a source of cash indemnities for the plaintiffs -- using personal injury statutes.
In France the police and the judiciary rigorously ensure the protection thus accorded to an official version of Second World War history. According to this rabbinical version, the major event of the conflict was the Shoah, in other words the physical extermination of the Jews that the Germans are said to have carried out from to Lacking any document with which to assign a precise time span to the event -- and for good reason, as it is a matter of fiction -- the official historians propose only dates that are as divergent as they are approximate.
Year after year, an avalanche of trials, entailing the gravest consequences, has thwarted my plans to publish such a work. Apart from my own cases, I have had to devote considerable time and effort to the defense, before their respective courts, of other revisionists in France and abroad.
Today, as I write these words, two cases are being brought against me, one in the Netherlands, the other in France, while I must also intervene, directly or indirectly, in proceedings pending against revisionists in Switzerland, Canada, and Australia.
For lack of time, I have had to decline helping others, notably two Japanese revisionists. For those convicted, imprisonment means a halt to all revisionist activity, while those ordered to pay large sums are compelled to set off on a feverish pursuit of money, goaded by threats of bailiffs, "writs of seizure," "notices to third parties," and freezing of bank accounts.
For this reason alone, my life over the past quarter of a century has been difficult. It still is and, in all probability, will remain so.
To make matters worse, my idea of research has never been that of the "paper" professor or historian. I consider it indispensable to see the terrain for myself: I have friends and associates produce countless letters and statements.
Whenever possible, I go myself to the ramparts. To cite but one example: I believe I can justifiably say that it aborted so pitifully as Maxwell himself admittednote 4 thanks to an operation on the spot that I personally organized -- with the help of a female French revisionist who lacked neither courage, nor daring, nor ingenuity:Joseph Stalin (born Ioseb Besarionis dze Jughashvili; 18 December – 5 March ) was a Soviet revolutionary and politician of Georgian ethnicity.
