Inconvenient History

Inconvenient history is real history just as much popular history. In fact it is liable to be more real because it is about what really happened. It is inconvenient for those with agendas. Peddling a fraudulent version of history can be very profitable. It can also be used to incite wars.

Historians Behind Bars Inconvenient History A Quarterly Journal for Free Historical Inquiry
Slightly over 30 years ago, James J. Martin, one of the deans of revisionist history of the twentieth century coined the term “Inconvenient History” with his collection of essays, The Saga of Hog Island.    Long before Al Gore would speculate on the “Inconvenient Truth” of global warming, James Martin was already a veteran.  Martin wrote:

“What the late Harry Elmer Barnes described in detail over the years as the ‘historical blackout’ with respect to World War Two revisionism has been the fate of other historical diversions from accepted convention in other areas.  A venerable ploy of the attackers of inconvenient history has been to ridicule the limited or often make-shift nature of its production, to decry its lack of pretentious supporters, or to launch sly, malicious innuendo against its producers, but avoiding if at all possible coming to terms with substance.”

Today certain historical studies are strongly discouraged and in certain once-free democracies even outlawed.  But a recent interest in discovering the facts about the twentieth century’s two world wars and their aftermath as well as the consequences of those events inspires us with new courage and optimism.   Harry Barnes said that correction of the historical record could only occur in light of a calmer political atmosphere, and a more objective attitude.  He was surprised to find that even 25 years after the Second World War, such an atmosphere had not yet developed.

Still, Barnes, Martin and their peers managed to create a set of solid historical research based on the facts.  Once lost down the Orwellian ‘memory hole,’ many of these titles have resurfaced with some prominence in books by Ron Paul and Patrick J. Buchanan.   Once again, the names of John T. Flynn, Garet Garrett, Charles Callan Tansill, William Henry Chamberlin, Captain Russell Grenfell, Walter Millis, Francis NeilsonF. J. P. Veale, and Luigi Villari can be found influencing contemporary thought and being sought out by a new generation who cannot be properly classified as “right” or “left” by contemporary standards.

Our new Quarterly Journal, Inconvenient History seeks to revive the true spirit of the historical revisionist movement; a movement that was established primarily to foster peace through an objective understanding of the causes of modern warfare.

In this effort, we are seeking authors, editors, translators, and advisors.  If you are interested in the truth, regardless of how inconvenient it may be to this or that regime or political party or ideology, you’re perfect for us. 

If you’re interested in revealing how the “west was lost” and the impact that modern myths of the “great war” and the “greatest generation” has had on international relations, you’ll want to consider Inconvenient History.

Revisionism was established as a progressive, some would say “liberal” methodology that originally set out to revise the harsh terms of the Treaty of Versailles following the First World War.  That same methodology, although rather successful in the 1920’s and 30’s met tremendous resistance following the Second World War.

By the 1970’s and 80’s the term “revisionism” was often thought synonymous with far-right politics and fascist sympathies.  Inconvenient History attempts to return to the roots of revisionism without any political agenda or desire to white wash totalitarian regimes.  We are free-thinkers who seek to support the concept of intellectual freedom as a means to peace and understanding between nations.  We are not interested in conspiracy theories; we are interested in revealing real history and supporting the freedom of historians to explore any topic they choose without fear of reprisal.

We anticipate continuing the efforts begun by Barnes, Martin and others to reveal how the Second World War got started, the taboo around the Holocaust story, the conduct of the war by both sides, and the consequences for the West and the world of the propaganda campaign that was constructed around this period.

Convenient history is like an ocean's waves, safely bringing the author's thesis to shore. Establishment historians are happy when the water table is high and courses are well-charted. Inconvenient history is the just the opposite. It is the jagged rocks protruding from the uncharted waters.

English Forensic Archaeologist Sets Out To Prove Treblinka Massacre
At the website of the University of Birmingham we find the following presentation of a young forensic archeologist named Caroline Sturdy Colls [1]:

Caroline is part of a small specialist team in the UK who work in the area of forensic archaeology. Caroline has a strong stomach and she doesn’t mind getting muddy – which helps when she works with the British Police on ‘no body’ cases – apparently it’s not as glamorous as it appears on CSI or Waking the Dead!.............

The holocaust mass graves which Ms. Colls is currently working at identifying are in fact those of the “pure extermination camp” of Treblinka II. This is made clear by a movie which can be downloaded at the same webpage. Below I provide a transcript of Ms. Sturdy Colls’ own narration (emphasis added):

It’s hard to believe that there has been no systematic search for the six million victims who perished in the Holocaust. 800,000 people were murdered here at Treblinka and their bodies were never found. It’s time we started looking.

I can only wish Ms. Sturdy Colls good luck in her work, which is precisely the kind of effort that we holocaust revisionists welcome.
In the meantime I advise her to read Carlo Mattogno and Jürgen Graf’s study Treblinka: Extermination Camp or Transit Camp?,[11] especially the chapters on previous forensic examinations and the alleged mass burials and cremations (pp. 77-110, 137-157).
This particular initiative has not been all over the main stream media. If she gets the results the Jews want that may well change. It seems pretty obvious that 800,000 or so corpses would leave plenty of evidence in a small area. Given that this work has been done before it seems unlikely that she will prove more than a much smaller number. The Wiki takes a clear position, saying that it really happened - Treblinka extermination camp - Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia. We will see what we see. I suspect that it will prove to be not a lot followed up a news blackout.


Treblinka: Extermination Camp or Transit Camp
Tells the world that Treblinka was a transit camp. It is illegal to have this book in Germany. This suggests that there is something wrong with the book or the people who made the law.

Nazi Extermination Camp Of Sobibor - Fact Or Fiction?
Claiming he spent most of WWII as a prisoner of the Germans, John Demjanjuk gained entry to the United States in 1952. In 1977, he was first sought out by US Federal Prosecutors, who insisted he was a war criminal who murdered Jews during WWII. Years later, in 1986, the former autoworker was extradited to Israel where he stood trial, accused of herding Jews into “gas chambers.” In 1988, he was sentenced to death for crimes against humanity after former concentration camp inmates identified him as the notorious "Ivan the Terrible", a guard at the purported death camp of Treblinka.

In 1993, the Israeli Supreme Court acquitted Demjanjuk with regard to the allegations that he was “Ivan the Terrible,” and his United States citizenship was restored shortly thereafter. Unfortunately, the travails of the hapless Seven Hills, Ohio resident did not end here.

No Physical or Forensic Evidence to Prove Traditional View of Sobibor
Professor Christopher Browning is considered one of the world’s foremost authorities on the WWII concentration camps of Treblinka, Belzec and Sobibor, collectively known as the Operation Reinhardt Camps. In his formal statement for the David Irving vs. Deborah Lipstadt and Penguin Books libel trial in London in 2000, Browning admitted that documents relating to mass gassings at these camps are scant. The same holds true for the material evidence (the mass graves and remains of the camps themselves): it is scarce.7
Eye witness testimony decades later is problematic. And that is assuming good faith. When there is not other we can think we need better evidence. Can 250 thousand murders leave no trace? I think not but when Jews allege they are the victims it is different.
Read for yourself. Think for yourself. Decide for yourself.
