Revisionism of the Black Book of Communism

The following article summarises some Left wing responses to Stéphane Courtois' The Black Book of Communism (1997, Harvard, 1999): https://www.alternet.org/2017/11/trump-media-antisemitic-black-book-communism-whitewash-nazis/ It says for example: As for violent deaths, according to the Soviet Union'...

Re: Was Adolf Hitler a Christian?

Thanks for contributing to this thread, but please tell us more. Why would it be "relevant reading"? What's said by Weikart concerning Hitler being a Christian or not being a Christian, etc.? Thanks, M1 Richard Weikart argues that Hitler may have had a general belief in providence, but no...

Re: Was Adolf Hitler a Christian?

Richard Weikart's book From Darwin to Hitler (2004) would be relevant reading.

I don't think he knows anything about revisionism though.

Re: Infamous execution photograph

I haven't seen the final photo before. There are plenty of discussions of the first photo, Udo Walendy's explanation is a main source.

Re: Anne Frank’s Diary Gains ‘Co-Author’ / and more

According to the US court case online: http://ny.findacase.com/research/wfrmDocViewer.aspx/xq/fac.19570312_0041130.NY.htm/qx Meyer Levin only adapted the published diary starting in 1950. There was an earlier version for radio. The court case does not establish Levin as author of the original (unles...

Re: Himmler's Posen speech of 04 October 1943 - Full version

What makes you think he was referring to the Commissar Order? Just curious. The quotation you gave from the speech to the navy: "Thus I have basically given the order to also kill the wives and children of these partisans, and commissars." And the fact that no independent evidence of a mo...

Re: Himmler's Posen speech of 04 October 1943 - Full version

It is interesting to hear that Himmler says he received an order. Perhaps that is a reference to the Commissar Order.

Re: Himmler's Posen speech of 04 October 1943 - Full version

One point worth making, aside from the authenticity issue, is that when Himmler talks earlier about General Vlasov killing the Russians (29.30, see Carlos Porter's translation under "The Vlasov ballyhoo", last sentence of first paragraph)), https://codoh.com/library/document/891/ he uses t...

Just use the search function on this board with the phrase "shellac disc" or "shellac discs" You'll get a lot about this Himmler speech. The video includes breaks similar to what you would find on an old record player. Talky films and 78 rpm records date from the 1930s, so I don...

Thanks for this further info, especially Carlos Porter's translation. I agree with Richard Widmann's observations about the figurative use of the key terms. You link here: https://forum.codoh.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5263 to material apparently by Wilhelm Staeglich, but the link is broken: https:...
