MESSAGE FROM MARK WEBER, DIRECTOR, INSTITUTE FOR HISTORICAL REVIEW

A wise man once said that success should be measured not by the position one has reached in life, but rather by the obstacles he has overcome. That standard is certainly relevant as today we remember and honor a remarkable woman.

 

Ingrid Rimland was born in 1936 into an ethnic German Mennonite community in Soviet Ukraine. When she was five years old, her father was taken from her – arrested by Bolshevik authorities and deported to Siberia – never again to be seen by his little daughter or other loved ones. A short time later, the people of her community — along with millions of others in Ukraine and other Soviet-controlled areas – welcomed the German troops who were advancing eastwards to bring down the Red empire.

 

A few years later, during the final months of the war in Europe, and as the resurgent Red Army was retaking Ukraine, she and many others fled westwards with the retreating German troops. Then, after several years living as a refugee, she and other members of her community migrated to South America where they began new lives in an isolated Mennonite settlement in Paraguay.

 

From there she moved with a husband and a young son to Ontario, Canada, where she had a second son, and then to the United States, where she eventually became a U.S. citizen. She earned a Bachelor’s degree, and then a Master’s, and then, a Doctorate of education.  For years she worked as an educational psychologist in California public schools, specializing in special education and education for migrant children. She later worked as an education consultant and testing specialist for some 40 schools in southern California. At the same time she ran a private practice in child psychology.   

 

That’s already quite a record for someone of her modest origins and difficult early life. But she pushed herself still further, making a name as an acclaimed writer.

 

Her novel, The Wanderers, drew on experiences from her own life and the lives of others in the community of her birth. This book earned the California Literature Medal Award for best fiction in 1977. A mass-market paperback edition was issued by Bantam publishers.


 

She also wrote an autobiography, titled The Furies and the Flame, and a book entitled Demon Doctor, as well as an ambitious three-volume novel, Lebensraum.

 

During the final decades of her life she was well known, of course, for her association with Ernst Zündel, the bold, energetic and courageous publisher and activist. She was much more than just his wife. She was a fiercely loyal defender and a valued collaborator.

 

During those years — in California, and then in Tennessee, where she lived until her recent death — she dedicated herself to the task, as she saw it, of defending the heritage and honor of her much maligned and mistreated people.


To this new career she devoted the same tenacity, skill and self-discipline she had put into her earlier professional life. For years she wrote and published a newsletter that won a loyal readership, and she maintained the influential “Zundelsite” website.

 

Although I cannot say that I knew her well, I’m pleased that she and I worked together on several projects. The most important, probably, was the demonstration we staged together in early 2005 outside the Canadian Consulate in downtown Los Angeles to protest the outrageous treatment of Ernst Zündel by Canadian authorities.

 

Today we remember with gratitude the life of a woman of idealism and ability who overcame poverty, privation, uprooting, and personal loss to achieve success in life, and whose struggle serves to inspire and encourage all of us, and many others as well.

MESSAGE FROM DR. ROBERT FAURISSON

Ernst Zündel died on August 5, 2017.

I had phoned him at his place in Germany on August 4.

He revealed me that Ingrid was going to die very soon

and he got down to some terrible specifics.

Never would I have guessed that Ernst would disappear

the next day. I was surprised by his death. I was not

surprised by Ingrid’s death in spite of what she wrote

about her surgical operation in Power‘s issue Nr.462

(September 2017, p. 7A). She thought she knew better

than the doctors. She even wrote : “Don’t you believe

them […]. I am back home, recuperating […]”. She was wrong.

The doctors and her husband were right.

Barbara Kulaszka died on June 15, Ernst Zündel on

August 5, Serge Thion on October 15 and Ingrid Rimland-

Zündel few days later. I guess I know the next one.

“Les dieux ont soif” (Gods are thirsty) but, alive or dead, we shall win.

INSTITUTE FOR HISTORICAL REVIEW CREDIT CARD PROCESSING SHUT DOWN BY DEEP STATE CENSORS

INSTITUTE FOR HISTORICAL REVIEW CREDIT CARD PROCESSING SHUT DOWN BY DEEP STATE CENSORS

Once Again, A Target of Bigotry
 
IHR Credit Card Processing Shut Down 
Dear Friends,
Recently the company that had been processing our credit card donations and orders abruptly cancelled its account with us.
This means that we are temporarily unable to accept credit card donations. (Similarly, our IHR Store site is not able to handle credit card orders.)
Behind this new attempt to shut us down is a systematic campaign by bigoted but prominent groups. It’s similar to the well-publicized effort four years ago by influential New York politician Dov Hikind, a zealous Zionist with a record of bigotry, that shut down our credit card processing for several months. (See Countering a Zionist Campaign To Shut Down Institute’s Credit Card Processing )

In spite of relentless smears, intimidation and pressure, we are confident that we will overcome this latest challenge.But as ever, our effectiveness depends on backing from men and women like you!
More than ever, it’s important to raise awareness about the powerful forces that promote war, injustice and oppression, and which put Jewish-Zionist interests ahead of what’s best for America and humanity.
Faithfully yours,
Mark Weber

Director, Institute for Historical Review

Jim Rizoli —  Interview With Mark Weber, Director of the Institute for Historical Review

 

Jim had a VERY good interview with Mark Weber, learning about Mark’s background and involvement with the revisionist effort, particularly the second Zundel trial.  Also Jim took issue with Mark about Mark’s unfounded belief in ‘limited gassings’ providing for a very lively discussion, all of which was very important.    We apologize for the slight lighting glitch though it didn’t affect the interview AT ALL.

Please pass this onto your lists.

Thus Jim and Joe’s efforts and cable shows also turned toward the issue of the holocaust.  That’s when their troubles accelerated. In 2002 – 2003 they began producing numerous (1000s of videos) dealing with many issues and 100s of videos about the holocaust. Consequently, YouTube videos (700) under the name of Jim Rizoli were banned. His name was banned on Facebook. In 2010, their cable shows were suspended. They returned and then were permanently removed in 2014. We are back to provide a venue of/freedom of, telling the story for tried-and-true revisionists and Germans throughout North America, Europe and Australia.

ORANGE COUNTY. December 15, 2102. The meaning of Christmas and gratitude for the growing fellowship of like minded freethinkers in Southern California were the themes of the annual Christmas party held by the Institute for Historical Review. Guests came from as far away as Las Vegas and San Diego.

IHR  Director Mark Weber was the host of the potluck supper and reflected on the growth over the past four years of an expanding and cohesive circle of people in Southern California who gather for frequent IHR meetings. There is always a lively synergy among younger and older members.

Special guest Paul Fromm from the Canadian Association for Free Expression reflected on that amazing story of the spontaneous truces that broke out along the Western Front at Christmas, 1914, when British and German soldiers sang Christmas carols, shared food and even played soccer. "There was a tremendous wisdom and good common sense," Mr. Fromm noted. "Deep down these men saw one another as coming from a common culture. there was an inner reluctance about the coming slaughter. This was a fratricidal war that did much to weaken and ruin European man" for the benefit of manipulators and outsiders.

Mr. Fromm discussed the attack on Christmas. "I find it dumbfounding that such a good and gentle feast can come in for such attack and shunning. Some religions celebrate the massacre of their enemies or, in the case of Judaism's Passover, the death of every firstborn Egyptian male. How can such a tragedy, if, indeed, it happened be a cause for feasting and joy? On the other hand, Christmas celebrates the birth of a Saviour. It is a gentle feast of joy and giving," he added.

The attack on Christmas, he pointed out, came in two assault waves. The first  hit in the 1940s and 1950s. Songs, many written by Jewish writers like Irving Berlin, erased Christ -- songs like "White Christmas", "City Bells", "Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer." Now, there was nothing wring with these songs in themselves," he explained. "They celebrated a secular or folk aspect of Christmas, but they downplayed or erased the core reason for Christmas -- the birth of Christ."

The second wave of the assault has occurred over the past 20 years. Businesses and government and the trendy have replaced "Merry Christmas" with "Happy Holidays" or "Seasons' Greetings." Not many of us celebrate a season, Mr. Fromm added, "like snow  and ice where I come from. Merchants know very well people are buying their over-priced imported Chinese junk because they celebrate Christmas, not a holiday or season. People have been conned in the name of inclusiveness or exclude the beliefs and celebrations of the Majority.

Mr. Fromm concluded by urging people to use the leverage of their custom with merchants to insist that the word "Christmas" be used in their signage and greetings.

Many comments were made about the fine dishes offered to the attendees. Mr. Fromm especially commented on a spicy Jambalaya-like Louisiana dish prepared by Miss Cathleen. "It reminds me of the Jambalaya Louisiana Council of Conservative Citizens chairman Herb Price used to serve down at baton Rouge," Mr. Fromm praised.
