Faurisson on the Holocaust

Webmaster note: Robert Faurisson is Europe’s foremost Holocaust revisionist scholar. Born in 1929, educated at the Sorbonne, Professor Faurisson taught at the University of Lyon from 1974 until 1990. Specializing in close textual analysis, Faurisson won widespread acclaim for his studies of texts by Rimbaud and Lautréamont. After years of private research and study, Faurisson revealed his skepticism of the "Holocaust" gas chambers in articles published in 1978 and 1979 in the French daily Le Monde. He has written numerous articles on all aspects of the "Holocaust," many of which appeared in The Journal of Historical Review. A four-volume collection of many of his revisionist writings, Écrits Révisionnistes (1974-1998), was published in 1999.

This is an unauthorized version of a book that Dr. Robert Faurisson hoped would be published in English. Dr. Faurisson is very exact in his thinking and writing, and certainly would make changes to these texts if the time and opportunity presented themselves. However, given the fact that this work has been languishing for years, and that Dr. Faurisson is not getting any younger, we are making this material available in its current form.

Also note that the nature of the transformation process between the original files and these web files ensures that there will be errors that do not appear in the originals. These errors are solely the responsibility of this site, and not of the author. However, we are making this collection available in its imperfect condition, as the anticipation of some future perfection already has kept this book off the shelves for more than a decade.
