Abstract:

Traces the history of Holocaust denial in West Germany and in reunified Germany in the 1990s. Revisionist publications always had some circulation in West Germany, but Holocaust denial gained wider popularity in the 1970s, when German-Jewish relations began to normalize. At the same time, Holocaust denial acquired a new motivation - to "cleanse Germany's good name, " to discharge Germany of her guilt. Pp. 29-67 deal with the case of Holocaust denier Germar Rudolf (b. 1964, changed his name to Scheerer in 1994), who in 1992 published the so-called "Rudolf Report" ("Rudolf Gutachten") which purports to prove that mass killings by use of poison gas could not have taken place at Auschwitz. Discusses Rudolf's contacts with other Holocaust deniers, the propagation of his writings throughout the world, and legal actions taken against him. In June 1995 he was sentenced to 14 months in prison for incitement to racism, Holocaust denial and insulting the dead. Pp. 73-94 contain five appendixes, listing prominent German Holocaust denial activists of the 1990s, books by Holocaust deniers, Germar Rudolf's publications, legal advisers to Holocaust deniers and the radical right in Germany, and Holocaust deniers tried in German courts in the 1990s.
