The Myth - Snippet 1 - Harry Elmer Barnes and what he stated

Postby Free Minded » 1 decade 5 years ago (Sat Jan 29, 2005 2:03 pm)

Okay, I'll risk copyright infringement.

First snippet. Harry Elmer Barnes, arguably one of America's greatest historians wrote in the Rampart Journal (Summer 1967.)

"What is important today is not whether Hitler started war in 1939 or whether Roosevelt was responsible for Pearl Harbour, but the number of prisoners who were allegedly done to death in the concentration camps operated by Germany during the war. (My emphasis) These camps were first presented as those in Germany, such as Dachau, Belsen, Buchenwald, Sachsenhausen, and Dora, but it was demonstrated that there had been no systematic extermination in those camps. Attention was then moved to Auschwitz, Treblinka, Belzec, Chelmno, Jonowska, Tarnow, Ravensbruck, Mauthausen, Brezeznia, and Birkenau, which does not exhaust the list that appears to have been extended as needed

An attempt to make a competent, objective, and truthful investigation of the extermination question is now regarded as far more objectionable and deplorable than Professor Bemis viewed charging President Roosevelt with war responsibility. It is surely the most precarious venture that an historian or demographer could undertake today; indeed, so “hot” and dangerous that only a lone French scholar, Paul Rassinier, has made any serious systematic effort to enter the field, although Taylor (?) obviously recognises the need for such work and hints as to where it would lead. But this vital matter would have to be handled resolutely and thoroughly in any future World War II revisionist book that could hope to refute the new approach and strategy of the blackout and smotherout contingents

Highly prophetic words that indicate what was happening 40 years ago and is still happening today. It is thanks to forums such as this one that the truth may one day prevail
