The Holocaust Historiography Project

Source Notes

  1. Two books provide an excellent survey of Karl Marx's paradoxical outlooks. His hypocrisy is dealt with in Karl Marx: Racist by Nathaniel Weyl (Arlington House, NY; 1979) and his personal life is detailed in Saul K. Padover's Karl Marx: An Intimate Biography (New American Library, NY; 1980). Trotsky is the simple title of beautifully illustrated large-size biography on the Bolshevik leader, compiled and written by Francis Wyndham and David King (Praeger, NY; 1972). Although the book is almost a hymn of praise from beginning to end, it does reveal some fascinating facts. Much collateral material can be found in Bill Grimstad's magisterial, comprehensive work The Six Million Reconsidered (The Noontide Press, Torrance; Historical Review Press, Brighton; 1979).
  2. We deliberately avoided using sources perceived as "anti-Semitic" in the chapter on "Communism". The Journal of Psychohistory costs $18 per year, or S4.50 per copy, and may be obtained from 2315 Broadway, New York City, NY 10024. Portnoy's Complaint is thought now to be out of print. But since it was no. 1 on the best-seller lists in 1969 it will probably be found in any used book store.
  3. Jewish sexuality is dealt with in Grimstad's book cited above, in Erotica Judaica by Allen Edwardes (The Julian Press, NY; 1967) and The Jew, The Gypsy and El Islam by Sir Richard Burton (1898 and reprints). The Fall 1978 issue of The Journal of Psychohistory entitled "Special Issue: Judaism as a Group Fantasy" deals with Jewish sexual psychology in several articles. The most comprehensive work dealing with the role of women in Jewish society is The Israeli Women by Lesley Hazleton (Touchstone, NY; 1977). Some interesting arguments are also to be found in A Psychohistory of Zionism by Jay Y. Gonen (Meridian, NY; 1975).
  4. Freud's life and philosophies are sympathetically dealt with in Freud for Beginners by Richard Appignanesi (Pantheon, NY; 1979). His influence is condemned by Martin L. Gross in The Psychological Society (Touchstone, NY; 1978). Dr. Gross's book was also the source for much of the disturbing information on therapy cults. A survey on the Freudian Marxists is contained in The Freudian Left by Paul A. Robinson (Harper & Row, NY; 1969). An expose of Scientology is contained in Cults of Unreason by Dr. Christopher Evans (Delta, NY; 1973).
  5. Jewish power in America is dealt with sympathetically in Stephen D. Isaacs' candid book Jews and American Politics (Doubleday, NY; 1974) and critically in The Zionist Connection by Dr. Alfred M. Lilienthal (Dodd Mead, NY; 1978).
  6. I was myself the conceiver and the Director of the Institute for Historical Review and Editor of The Journal of Historical Review from inception in the winter of 1978 until the end of April 1981. The Journal contains a wealth of research material exposing the bogus nature of much Holocaust propaganda. It currently costs $30 per year, and can be obtained from the IHR at P.O. Box 1306, Torrance, California 90505. Their booklist of Revisionist books is also unique and invaluable.
  7. Dr. Howard F. Stein teaches at the University of Oklahoma in Oklahoma City.
  8. Terrence Des Pres' book The Survivor is a useful collection of Holocaust nightmares (Oxford University Press, NY; 1976). In The Journal of Historical Review of Fall 1981 have reviewed several of the other "survivor" books mentioned in this chapter. For further commentary on the Arendt and Reitlinger extracts, see my article entitled "The Mendacity of Zion" in the Summer 1980 issue of the JHR.
  9. Jewish psychology is examined in The Mask Jews Wear; The Self-Deceptions of American Jewry by Eugene B. Borowitz (Simon & Schuster, NY; 1973), The Jewish Paradox by Nahum Goldmann (Grosset & Dunlap, NY; 1978), The Jewish Mystique by Ernest van den Haag (Stein & Day, NY; 1969) and The Ordeal of Civility by John Murray Cudding (Basic Books, NY; 1974).
