Taboo-Breaking Books and Documentaries

"Enlightenment is man’s leaving his self-caused immaturity. Immaturity is the incapacity to use one’s intelligence without the guidance of another. Such immaturity is self-caused, if it is not caused by lack of intelligence, but by lack of determination and courage to use one’s intelligence without being guided by another. Sapere Aude! [dare to know] Have the courage to use your own intelligence! is therefore the motto of the enlightenment."

That is the famous German philosopher Immanuel Kant speaking in 1784.

This website is about enlightenment, maturity, and courage:

  1. It aims at enlightening all its visitors about one of the most influential issues of modern history: The alleged deliberate mass murder of six million Jews by Nazi Germany mainly by means of gas chambers during World War Two.
  2. It requires that the visitor be mature, that is: that he or she is capable of using their own intelligence without the guidance of another.
  3. And finally, it requires courage to open the mind to well-founded, rational, yet at once truly mind-blowing and, some would say, sacrilegious thoughts.

Are you ready for your own dose of enlightenment? Watch, listen and read, and find out for yourself!

Don't Know Where to Start?

Start with a Free Movie

To ease you into the subject, we recommend that you sit back, relax and watch an introductory documentary. There are several choices we recommend:

  • Holocaust, Hate Speech & Were the Germans so Stupid? (35 min.)
    The late British video-journalist Anthony Lawson, a retired international-prize-winning commercials director, cameraman, ad agency creative director and voice over, expertly introduces the viewer to the basic concepts and consequences of scepticism about the orthodox Holocaust narrative.
  • The First Holocaust: The Surprising Origin of the Six-Million Figure (1 hr 10 min.)
    German-born Chemist, publisher and editor Germar Rudolf reveals how the myth of six million persecuted Jews threatened by a holocaust was created in the late eighteenhundreds (yes 1800s!), became a popular theme during and after the FIRST World War (not the Second), and has stayed with us ever since.
  • Questioning the Holocaust: Why We Believed (1 hr 30 min.)
    Documentary filmmaker Eric Hunt shows with a few pertinent, well-documented examples – the cases of the Dachau, Nordhausen and Bergen-Belsen Camps – why it is important to distrust wartime propaganda about claimed Nazi atrocities, not the least because much of this propaganda has been admitted by mainstream historians to have been mendacious.

If you're hungry for more, you can browse any of our documentaries, or, if you want to delve into the matter even deeper, you may want to start reading our books, whose information density is easily tenfold that of a documentary.

Read Our Books

Most of our books on the "Holocaust" you can download, read and even distribute free of charge as an eBook (as PDF and, for most, as a Kindle). Our series Holocaust Handbooks currently encompasses 41 books, 34 of which have been published, while the rest is in various stages of preparation. Many of these books are highly specialized, which can be rather confusing and discouraging for most of you who just want it in a nutshell. Hence, below we give a brief guide as to what we recommend for those dipping their feet into this topic for the first time, or for those who want a somewhat deeper, yet still general immersion into it.
The first three books are unfortunatley commercial in nature and are not available as free downloads (and the first isn't even part of our series). The last one, however, and indubitably also the most up-to-date and comprehensive one, is available as a free download, so maybe you want to start there.

Holocaust 101

T. Dalton, 'The Holocaust: An Introduction'

The best brief introduction into the topic of the Holocaust is Thomas Dalton's The Holocaust: An Introduction. It has merely 115 pages of text in a handy, small paperback format of 5x8 inches, and it costs only $10/£8 as a hard copy. Amazon customer E.J. Peterson, a verified buyer of the book, wrote the following brief review about it (on March 6, 2017, Amazon blocked all our books and deleted all associated book reviews, so you can't find the reviews quoted here anymore – so much about freedom of speech...):

Phenomenal. A fantastic starting point.
For a 115 page book, it is a truly shocking and eye-opening work. I cannot recommend this highly enough. Honestly, subject your accepted opinion on the matter to this 1 hour read and see where you sit after that.

Holocaust 201

  1. T. Dalton, 'Debating the Holocaust: A New Look at Both Sides'

    The above-mentioned brief introduction into the topic is a condensation of a more encompassing study which Dalton first published in 2008: Debating the Holocaust: A New Look at Both Sides. He released an updated edition of that book in 2015. In this book, Dalton studies the topic more thoroughly by juxtaposing the most important arguments of all contending sides in the raging debate about the "Holocaust," which, some say, should not be debated in the first place. The book has some 300 pages of text of a larger format (6x9 inches). At $25/£18 as a hard copy, it's still a steal. Amazon customer "patito," a verified buyer of the book, wrote this brief review about it:

    Most important Holocaust book in this moment
    The updates to the 2015 edition are especially important as the author corrects and forwards a proposal towards the end. A very good compilation of the real state of affairs regarding the actual evidence for one argument or the other. The Epilogue is especially critical to understanding the whole picture.

  2. N. Kollerstrom, 'Breaking the Spell: The Holocaust, Myth & Reality'

    In his book Breaking the Spell: The Holocaust, Myth & Reality, now available in its 2015 2nd edition, science historian Dr. Nicholas Kollerstrom explains the Holocaust issue for the common reader from a scientific, but also from a societal point of view. This paperback book has some 220 pages of text (6x9 inches). At $25/£20 as a hard copy, it has been our best-selling book ever since it was first published. Amazon customer "Giordano Bruno," a Amazon-verified buyer of the book, wrote this brief review about it:

    Myth Busting
    An interesting and informative book, particularly how it expresses that the “Holocaust” has basically become a sacred religion that cannot be challenged even by science. Anyone who dares to criticise or explain that certain narratives of the holocaust are physically impossible is instantly branded as a heretic and excommunicated. Would definitely recommend reading it!

  3. Holocaust 301

    G. Rudolf, 'Lectures on the Holocaust: Controversial Issues Cross Examined'

    At 510 pages of text, the Lectures on the Holocaust have been characterized as encyclopedic in their coverage of the topic, yet at the same time as a truly riveting read. Written in an unusual dialogue form, it draws you right into the debate the author engages in. This is a brandnew edition issued in July 2017, which is greatly improved by new material. It costs merely $30/£25 as a hard copy. Amazon customer "HolocaustHistory channel," a verified buyer of the book (he bought it from us, not from Amazon), wrote this brief review about it:

    Outstanding
    This is without doubt one of the best treatments of the holocaust debate. Rudolf is judicious and moderate throughout, and packs in a great deal of information. By writing dialogues, he gives himself the opportunity to give clear answers to many the questions that will occur to the reader. If you are at all interested in the holocaust, you have to read this book.
