In the three decades since he published his first book, Irving has firmly established himself as not only one of the most successful and widely-read historians of our time, but also as one of the most courageous.
The humor comes from a hint of self-mockery and an obvious delight in making liberal flesh creep."
At the Eleventh IHR Conference in October 1992as he had in his presentations at the IHR Conferences of 1983, 1989 and 1990this good friend of the Institute for Historical Review not only shed new light on important chapters of twentieth-century history, he delighted attendees with humorous updates on some of the new ways he had found to make liberal flesh creep.
The ADL committed itself to its nazi devil fantasy half a century ago and has ridden it so long so successfully it can't get off, no matter how broken down and exhausted the old nag is.
Stern's article in ran under the head, "Holocaust Revisionists Should Be Challenged, Repudiated With Truth." Marvin and I are in complete agreement on this one.
His declaration that the Holocaust was not indeed conceived by Adolf Hitler and his gang of cronies like Himmler, and Goebbels, but was actually cooked up by the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini. Netanyahu made the charge while giving a speech at the opening of the World Zionist Congress this week in Jerusalem.

This study guide accompanies Surviving Hatred: Witness To The Holocaust, a 30-minute video designed to teach middle and high school students the lessons of the Holocaust. The video includes a brief history of the Holocaust, followed by the personal testimonies of four survivors who live in Southern Virginia. The study guide includes classroom activities, survivors’ biographies, a Holocaust time line, and annotated bibliographies.
This booklet is designed to provide teachers with information and suggested activities that will help students participating in the Holocaust Education Program obtain the most from their program. It is divided into background information and pre- and post-visit activities. The information provided has been developed to support the program lecture while providing a vehicle to assist the teacher in student preparation. Post-visit activities have been designed to provide additional information sources and suggestions for teacher-led exercises.
The study provides an educational experience through which students can develop an understanding of how the holocaust emerged from a progression of events. It also provides a basis from which students can draw conclusions about what society can learn from these events and how they relate to current events.

RESISTANCE IN THE WARSAW GHETTO
by Sol A. Factor
Cleveland Heights High School
Cleveland Heights, Ohio
“Sol A. Factor wrote two sets of detailed lesson plans (below) to study the Warsaw Ghetto. The lesson plans focus on how the Holocaust changed the lives of the people and how they responded to the Holocaust. Each set has six lesson plans with the following sections: Purpose, Objectives, Materials, Method and Order of Presentation, and Closure. The high school lesson plans were part of the application that led to his selection in 1998 to become a Mandel Fellow at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum.”
During World War II Poland suffered greatly under five years of German occupation. Nazi ideology viewed “Poles”- the predominantly Roman Catholic ethnic majority- as “sub-humans” occupying lands vital to Germany. As part of the policy to destroy the Polish resistance, the Germans killed many of the nation’s political, religious, and intellectual leaders. They also kidnapped children judged racially suitable for adoption by Germans and confined Poles in dozens of prisons and concentration and forced labor camps, where many perished.
Jehovah’s Witnesses endured intense persecution under the Nazi regime. Actions against the religious group and its individual members spanned the Nazi years 1933 to 1945. Unlike Jews and Sinti and Roma “Gypsies”), persecuted and killed by virtue of their birth, Jehovah’s Witnesses had the opportunity to escape persecution and personal harm by renouncing their religious beliefs. The courage the vast majority displayed in refusing to do so, in the face of torture, maltreatment in concentration camps, and sometimes execution, won them the respect of many contemporaries.
