HOT OFF THE PRESSES! One comprehensive, hardback reference volume covering all the events known as the Holocaust. Oversized (8.5 x 11), case laminate, 579 entries, 256 B&W illustrations, 101 color pictures, fully indexed, bibliography, 634 pages . . .

The Holocaust is a topic whose public discourse is tightly controlled by powerful groups. Only their side of the story is permitted. In fact, they insist there is no other side. They guard the West’s last taboo and enforce swift punishment upon those who dare to ask any questions or unearth any evidence that leads to unwelcome answers. Undaunted by this threat, and for the first time in history, a team of critical scholars has produced an encyclopedic compendium of cutting-edge information on this topic that pays no tribute to any power, respects no taboo, poses all the questions worth asking and gives answers exclusively based on real evidence.

Its contents have not been censored by any legal authority. The lead editor of Holocaust Encyclopedia made sure that all contributors to this project were truly independent, and will defend what they consider to be true and accurate, even when threatened with imprisonment due to censorship laws in many countries. In this encyclopedia, you are not lectured in so many entries what we think the Holocaust was. Rather, you find the many pieces summarized and explained that comprise the larger picture: Scores of entries present the essence of the most-pertinent witness accounts. They are the mainstay on which the Holocaust narrative rests. All are subjected to painstaking source criticism, which is one of the most important tools of a real historian. This enables the reader to assess which witnesses are trustworthy, if any.

Holocaust Encyclopedia addresses all the major Holocaust crime scenes: Auschwitz, Belzec, Sobibór and Treblinka; Dachau, Bergen-Belsen, Buchenwald and Mauthausen; Babi Yar, Ponary, Janowska and Maly Trostinets, to name but a few. But their entries do not just summarize what today’s narrative is. They explain how it was formed, how it has changed over time, what the reasons for these changes are, and which aspects of the narrative are credible and why. Forensics are the most important tool to investigate any murder case. Therefore, Holocaust Encyclopedia contains lots of entries discussing the many tools said to have been employed to commit the mass murders and to erase the traces: execution chambers, gas vans, mass graves, crematoria and cremation pyres. It discusses toxicological issues surrounding the various lethal gases claimed to have been used: gasoline and diesel exhaust gases, carbon monoxide, Zyklon B/hydrogen cyanide, to name only the familiar ones.

How did these tools work, if at all? What traces can we expect to find, if any? And, ultimately, which traces were actually found during forensic investigations undertaken since WWII’s end. Holocaust Encyclopedia also has multiple entries on certain more-or-less common claims about aspects of the Holocaust, including a list of “Who said it?” These cover topics such as “flames shooting out of chimneys,” “fat extracted from burning corpses,” “blood geysers erupting from mass graves,” “soap and towels issued to gassing victims,” to name but a few.

Finally, several entries address factors that have influenced the creation of the Holocaust narrative, and how we perceive it today. This includes, among others, entries on psychological warfare and propaganda during the war, on conditions prevailing during criminal investigations and trials of alleged Holocaust perpetrators, on censorship against historical dissidents, on the religious dimension of the Holocaust narrative and on motives of all sides involved in this debate that refuses to go away. In this important volume with 579 short chapters, you will discover—for the very first time uncensored and unconstrained—the bare bones of this skeleton in the West’s historical closet.
