THWARTING THE BOOK BURNERS
I want to offer a hearty thanks to each of you who donated to our OPERATION BOOK RESCUE (OBR) program, an insert for which was included with the July/August 2023 edition of THE BARNES REVIEW (TBR). With your generosity, we were able to raise a decent amount to place in our OBR coffers for this vital endeavor. There are two aspects to the OBR program. The first is to help authors and publishers who have been chased out of every venue there is—print and electronic—where they once produced and sold their books. This is a modern-day “bibliocaust.” The second is to get good Revisionist books back in print for those who do not have the resources or desktop publishing skills to take their amazing manuscripts and then pay proofreaders, editors and graphic designers to turn their words into physical books. One of these is longtime award-winning historian Michael Walsh—a member of TBR’s BOARD OF CONTRIBUTING EDITORS.
Several years ago, ALL of his books were removed from every bookselling platform you could name. This included Revisionist works but also collections of his poetry. TBR has been able, already, to bring three of his best-known works back into print. (See page 74.) But there are more to be rescued from this one author alone. Currently we are working on bringing his bestselling masterpiece Witness to History: The Third Reich Legend Uncensored back from the grave. The funds you have donated will make this possible—and more. Look for updates in an upcoming issue of TBR. Now that we are on the topic of “book burners,” our lead story is about the book burnings of National Socialist Germany. Why did German authorities want some books burned? What was in those books? Were they a threat to the rejuvenation of Germany? Who wrote them, who burned them and should we ever support book burning? For the answers to these questions, I direct you to our lead story by John Wear, J.D., beginning on page 4.
Also of interest to those concerned about modern-day book bans is our editorial on the facing page in which we discuss efforts of concerned parents to remove subversive and inappropriate material from the shelves of school and public libraries so that children are not exposed to what appears to us to be neo-Marxist filth. These parents don’t want these books “burned” or banned. They just don’t want their kids to be exposed to them at an inappropriate age. Also, please check out Assistant Editor John Friend’s interview with Michael Santomauro, the CEO of Castle Hill Publishers (CHP), a professional publisher founded by perhaps the most prolific Revisionist historian of our generation, Germar Rudolf. CHP is the preeminent source for impeccably researched and scholarly books on the “Holocaust.” CHP has been targeted for destruction by modern-day book burners who are fine with porno in elementary school libraries but go to extreme lengths to crush any and all books containing honest information on the experiences of Jews and others in WWII work camps. I thank you all once again for supporting our efforts and also for your patience when waiting for delivery of books.
As TBR is now printing its own books, we are not quite as fast as Amazon and Ingram just yet, and delivery times could extend to 30 days on some books. Your understanding is much appreciated. —PAUL ANGEL, Executive Editor

A JOURNAL OF POLITICALLY INCORRECT HISTORY
SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2023 ❖ VOLUME XXIX ❖ NUMBER 5
TABLE OF CONTENTS
A REVISIONIST ANALYSIS OF THIRD REICH BOOK BURNINGS
BY JOHN WEAR, J.D. Shortly after Adolf Hitler rose to power, student supporters and other activists sympathetic to the National Socialist movement organized massive book-burning ceremonies in various German and Austrian cities. Even today, 90 years later, these symbolic demonstrations continue to be referenced for political purposes. In this timely article, John Wear explains what books were burned, who wrote them and why they were tossed into the fire.
DID HITLER SEIZE POWER OR WAS HE ELECTED DEMOCRATICALLY?
BY KARL HAEMERS Adolf Hitler’s dramatic rise to power is often falsely characterized as a brazen and illegal seizure of authority by a megalomaniacal dictator. That fictional tale suits the aims of those who must maintain the myth that Hitler was the worst villain in history to prop up their own fake narratives. So, how did Hitler really come to power? Karl Haemers explains.
INSIDE WWII IMPERIAL JAPAN’S NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROGRAM
BY MARC ROLAND Rumors swirled around Imperial Japan’s suspected nuclear weapons program during the WWII era. Just how advanced was the Japanese program and what role did its ally, National Socialist Germany, play? Longtime TBR contributor Marc Roland offers readers an insightful overview of the history of Japan’s nuclear program—and how close they actually came to making “the bomb.”
EXPOSING THE DECEPTIONS OF WWII
BY RONALD L. RAY TBR presents an overview of Crimes Discreetly Veiled, the important Revisionist tome by eminent British historian F.J.P. Veale. Once you read this article, you will understand why the book has been suppressed for 65 years—and why you need to read it.
THE VATICAN, THE ROTHSCHILDS & USURY: A PARADOX—PART 3
BY ANTONIUS J. PATRICK TBR’s Antonius Patrick concludes his three-part series exploring the relationship between the Vatican, the Rothschild banking dynasty, and the practice of usury and fractional reserve banking. What did traditional Catholic scholars have to say about the concept of usury and fractional reserve banking? This article provides some valuable insights.
FRANK CHODOROV’S SOLUTION TO THE ‘DEBT-CEILING’ DEBACLE
BY ANTONIUS J. PATRICK Partisan Democrats and Republicans alike invariably squabble over the “debt-ceiling” every year. Depending on which party is in power, dishonest politicians demand the “debt-ceiling” be raised, reduced or maintained. Is there an alternative solution to the endless factional, politically driven bickering and debate they conduct over the debt ceiling?
THE TRAGIC FATE OF THE PIEDS-NOIRS IN ALGERIA
BY RÉMI TREMBLAY Following decades of peaceful European settlement in Algeria, almost exclusively by native French speakers known as Pieds-Noirs, a Marxist-inspired uprising by radical Algerians against French rule began in the 1960s. Despite promises to protect the Pieds-Noirs in her longtime colony, France shamefully abandoned them. Here is their tragic saga.
TBR’S OPERATION BOOK RESCUE TEAMS UP WITH CASTLE HILL INTERVIEW WITH MICHAEL SANTOMAURO
Revisionist publishers continue to face massive censorship and deplatforming in a truly Orwellian fashion. In this issue, TBR’s John Friend interviews Michael Santomauro, CEO of the iconic Castle Hill Publishers (CHP). He recounts the efforts of well-funded agitators to destroy CHP and its founder Germar Rudolf, a world-renowned Revisionist scholar.
