Carlo Mattogno joins IH Editorial Advisory Board

Postby widmann » 1 decade 1 year ago (Thu Sep 03, 2009 7:46 am)

INCONVENIENT HISTORY: A Quarterly Journal for Free Historical Inquiry is pleased to announce that Carlo Mattogno has joined the Editorial Advisory Board.

Carlo Mattogno, is the author of Le camere a gas di Auschwitz. Studio storico-tecnico sugli “indizi criminali” di Jean-Claude Pressac e sulla “convergenza di prove” di Robert Jan van Pelt (The Gas Chambers at Auschwitz. Historical and Technical study of Jean-Claude Pressac's “criminal traces” and Robert Jan van Pelt's “convergence of evidence”). He has also written several additional scientific analyses of the Auschwitz concentration camp including: The Bunkers of Auschwitz, Special Treatment in Auschwitz, Auschwitz Crematorium I, The Central Construction Office, Auschwitz: The First Gassing, Auschwitz: Open Air Incinerations, The Crematories of Auschwitz, Auschwitz: The End of a Legend. He has also authored or co-authored several books on other concentration camps including: Treblinka: Extermination Camp or Transit Camp?, Concentration Camp Majdanek: A Historical and Technical Study, and Concentration Camp Stutthof and its Function in National Socialist Jewish Policy. Mattogno is considered to be the foremost revisionist researcher in the world today.

Speaking of which, before Germar Rudolf was abducted in 2005 he had specific plans laid out on his VHO site for future publications which included some books authored or co-authored by Mattogno. These included:

F Late 2005/Early 2006: Germar Rudolf, Carlo Mattogno, Auschwitz: The Case against Insanity (ca. 300 pp.)
F Early 2006: Carlo Mattogno, Healthcare in Auschwitz (in translation, some 130 pages)
F 2006/2007: Carlo Mattogno, The Crematory Ovens of Auschwitz (in translation; some 1,500 to 2,000 pages)

Does anyone anywhere have any concrete plans for going and getting these into publication today? I'm not expecting much of anything from either Carto or Weber, and I wouldn't wish to underestimate the likely costs involved in such a publishing enterprise. But if there are some specific measures that would actually contribute to the defining of revisionist positions it would surely be the publication of the above. I also had heard it claimed that Rudolf had plans before his kidnapping to publish the report attributed to Richard Krege. I've never invoked that report in any debates on Treblinka and unless a carefully reviewed full edition is made available I won't. The IHR has had an old story about this sitting on its site for a long time:

http://www.ihr.org/jhr/v19/v19n3p20_radar.html

That piece might have seemed very interesting nearly a decade ago when it first appeared in the JHR. But without a real follow-up it means nothing. I'm not expecting Carto or Weber to get on the ball with any of this even when they have the necessary funds available, but is there a vague chance that someone else will be able to?

PatrickSMcNally, after Mr.Rudolf was abducted, one Michael Santomauro took over his publishing company. This is the guy who I imagine would have been responsible to publish the work you mentioned, which, btw, included the Krege report and much more.
Unfortunately, Mr.Santomauro has done nothing of the sort. Not one single book was published, except for the one by a certain Dr.Dalton(methinks thats the dude's name).
A really disgraceful situation.

In my opinion, Dalton's book "Debating the Holocaust: A New Look At Both Sides" is an excellent introduction to the whole affair. Don't judge it without reading it first. I find it a highly effective way of breaking the news to the average non-partisan person. Certainly much more effective in its use of plain common sense than any of the (equally necessary) revisionist treatises full of technical data etc.

ASMarques referring to Dalton's book:
[...]Don't judge it without reading it first.


Oh, but I am not! I was only criticizing Santomauro, who failed to publish even a single of Mattognos new books, as he was supposed to.

As for Dalton's "Debating the Holocaust: A New Look At Both Sides", I have not read it but it must be quite good, given that intellectual pygmies Roberto and A.Matthis have trashed it at Amazon.com. They "reviewed" the book without even reading it, as they themselves admit!

Is that statement based upon practical experience with showing the book to people? It might be interesting to know more if such is the case.

Exactly! I'd also have to add, though, that I agree with a comment which Germar Rudolf made somewhere, some time before his kidnapping in 2005, that posing the issue at an academic level to purported experts is of primary importance. I've at times been stunned at the ease with some average "non-partisan" (?) people have allowed themselves to be persuaded by what are clearly the weaker arguments tossed out on behalf of a revisionist viewpoint (e.g. 4 million Jews dead at Auschwitz). What the majority of people hold onto most of all is not any attempt to evaluate revisionist arguments, either the weaker or the stronger ones, but just the fact that the great experts in the ivory towers do not accept revisionism. It is those great experts who must be challenged, and one of the most effective ways of challenging people in the ivory tower is by publishing research which goes where none have dared to go before. A study on the system of health care in Auschwitz would be a perfect candidate for this. Everyone who pays attention to the variety of testimonies can figure out that there was at least some type of hospital service in Auschwitz, even if it may not have been up to par with what one would hope for as a patient. But no has yet attempted to produce a methodical study of such a topic. Now if revisionists were to produce a serious study on this then the orthodox historiography would come under pressure to better define where they stand on this. That would be truly significant, if it could be done. But for that to occur someone needs to first publish Mattogno's book.

Yes, but there is not really much more that I can say. Of course, I'm not making a statistical inference based on any large samples. I'd say I've brought about half a dozen unsuspecting people in contact with the book and the reactions were much more favorable than I've grown used to when recommending very important but complex works such as Rudolf's Report etc.

Also, the book is honest, clear and well presented, in my opinion.

Ah, yes. The 4 million: your pet cause. Actually a perfectly valid and indeed powerful point that should be made whenever demonstrating that the "Holocaust" arithmetic never made any sense. But we have dedicated a whole thread to that topic -- in fact a sort of looping thread that may still be going on on its own when no one is looking -- and I'm not going into that again, pheeew... :wink:

There is a recent thread about the 'Auschwitz 4 million'; posts on that should go there, not here. Everyone, read the guidelines.
