The Holocaust Story

If the Holocaust was an event in history, it should be open to the routine critical examination to which all other historical events are open. Those who feel it right to argue against the “unique monstrosity” of the Germans should be free to do so. No one should be imprisoned for thought crimes. Contrary to how Hollywood and the Israeli-Firsters have it, the Holocaust story is not about Jews. It’s about Jews and Germans together, inseparable, for all time to come.

Germar Rudolf in his own words

The arrest and deportation of Germar Rudolf has been reported with sweeping slanders and misleading suggestions. We read that Rudolf is charged with "inciting racial hatred." Who is this "hatemonger?"

In the English edition of "Dissecting the Holocaust," Rudolf commented extensively on the Relationship of Germans and Jews. In an article entitled, "The Controversy about the Extermination of the Jews: An Introduction" Rudolf wrote the following (under the pen name Ernst Gauss)

A German-Jewish Vision of the Future

When the cultural and social integration of the Jews in Germany became a reality in the course of the past century, this development also heralded one of the greatest and most fruitful symbioses that ever connected two peoples.

[...]
Could this symbiosis, so profitable for the whole world, be possible once again today?

[...]

It is my wish that both peoples should come together again in a partnership of mutual respect, so as to take up the traditions of an era that brought the world, Jewry, and the German people, such immense benefit. It is also my wish that the time may come, at long last, where all the reciprocal contempt or disdain, mutual distrust and fear are eroded and ultimately removed.

[...]

Reconciliation can progress only in a climate which fosters speaking from the heart and listening with an open mind and spirit; where opinions are expressed rather than choked back or even suppressed; where points of contention are discussed in a civilized manner and not hidden by hushing up, distractionism, or violence.

[...]

The first and foremost goal of this discussion is the joint and sincere search for truth, in order to contribute to a reconciliation between Jews and Germans which may perhaps result in a realization of my dream of a revival of the German-Jewish symbiosis.
