Holocaust Denial Propaganda
The Holocaust that took place during World War II is a very important incident in history. It is used as an example to prevent this from happening again. Today there is a movement that has the main goal of denying the Holocaust and that it ever happened. This propaganda movement targets the youth by placing ads in college newspapers.
The denial of the Holocaust has been publicly present since the Nuremberg trials. Today the Holocaust denial is a propaganda movement whose goal is to deny the truth behind the Nazi regime’s mass murder of 6 million Jews during World War II. The movement is active in the United States, Canada and Western Europe. The movements target youths and young adults.
The simple idea of denying the Holocaust is started by Nazi policy. The Nazi policy tried to camouflage the mass murder of 6 million Jews. The Nazi party sought to deny the "Final Solution to the Jewish Question," even as the directives were being carried out. The fact that death squads were ordered and used to assassinate the Jewish race was completely denied. During the Nuremberg trials, post-War French Trotskyists and anarchists denounced evidence of the genocide as "Stalinist atrocity propaganda". The French Trotskyists were lead by the deceased Paul Rassinier and sought to advance their own political prowess by denouncing genocide as "Stalinist atrocity propaganda".
The roots of Holocaust revisionism takes place in 1979. Willis Carto started the largest anti-Jewish propaganda organization, the Institute for Historical Review (IHR). The organization is staffed by unaccredited professors, writers without formal academic certification and anti-Semites. They all convened to develop new outlets for their anti-Jewish, anti-Israel, and , for some, pro Nazi beliefs.
In 1993 Carto broke with the IHR, discredited his formal employees and started a rival revisionist journal called "The Barnes". The sides both still argue the Holocaust never happened but they disagree on Carto’s dictator managerial style. The dispute ended up financially hurting both sides.
Today Holocaust denial is world wide. The IHR have employed writers for the group’s Journal of Historical Review (JHR). The leading writers are Mark Weber, Bradley Smith and Fredleuchter from the USA, Ernst Zundel from Canada, David Irving from England, Robert Faurisson from France, Carlo Mattogno from Italy and Ahmed Rami from Sweden. Bradley Smith attracts the most notoriety due to a series of Holocaust revisionist advertisements which are placed, inconspicuously, in college newspapers. The advertisements are sponsored by the CODOH or the Committee for Open Debate on the Holocaust.
The CODOH is said to be an independent committee whose goal is to promote "open debate" on the Holocaust. The CODOH operates, essentially, as a vehicle for IHR propaganda. It was first headed by Smith (Pictured left) and Weber and was founded by the late William...
