exposed: fake WWII documents planted in archive

Of course those that shove the bogus "Holocaust" down everyone's throat would never consider this tactic, right?

UK uncovers WW2 history fraud

A series of documents, used by a British historian to reveal WW2 'secrets', have been exposed as fakes. The Guardian says that Martin Allen used the documents in 3 books to make sensational claims, including that the Duke of Windsor leaked intelligence to the Nazis to help them conquer France.

Allen had cited 29 documents stored in the National Archives, which has now revealed that they were fakes, planted between 2000 and 2005.

The forged 'evidence' was said to be amateurish, with a laser printer used for some of the work.

Allen is unlikely to be charged with any offences, partly because of his failing health.

The National Archives have overhauled its security after the fraud was unearthed.

And of course they also won't plant documents that first 'reveal' a murder plot against Himmler and then are 'exposed' to be forgeries as well:
'Himmler murder' files are forgeries


By NICHOLAS CHRISTIAN
SECRET papers alleging that British spies murdered Heinrich Himmler in 1945 have been exposed as forgeries produced using a laser printer.
The revelation that the files, which were housed at the National Archives in Kew, are bogus has shocked historians. The archives, which contain millions of historical documents, had previously been thought immune to distortion or contamination.

TADVERTISEMENThe allegation that Himmler, the leader of the SS, was murdered - with the knowledge of the War Cabinet - appeared in the book Himmler's Secret War by historian Martin Allen, which was published in May. Now Allen has claimed he was "set up" by forgers.

What made the claim stand out from the flood of other bizarre stories and claims which have emerged since the Second World War was that it referred to specific documents in the National Archives - usually an absolute guarantee of validity.

But experts became suspicious over the use of language in documents that read more like sections from a spy thriller than dry civil service memos.

The papers were examined by Dr Audrey Giles, one of Britain's foremost forensic document experts. She discovered that letterheads on documents supposedly written in 1945 were created on a high-resolution laser printer, technology which did not exist in until the 1980s. And seemingly official signatures were found to be written over pencil tracings.

She concluded that at least four of the five documents which supported the murder conspiracy were forgeries.

Just why would someone with access to that archive plant documents there "alleging a murder plot against Himmler"? And if funny language is an issue. Why not critically examine certain funny German documents, instead of accepting them on face value, if they support the Holocaust?

What?, you mean like the ...... Holocaust?

How come we gotta take those "bizarre stories and claims" on face value without any specific documents in any National Archive?

oh dear, could the Holocaust be a hoax? :oops:
