The Dissolution of Eastern European Jewry
By Walter N. Sanning. Edited & Updated by Germar Rudolf. Before World War II, Eastern Europe was the demographic center of world Jewry. After the war, however, only a fraction of it was left behind. What happened?
“The holocaust,” of course, most will say. The author of this book did not stop there, though, but thoroughly explored European population developments and shifts mainly caused by emigration, as well as deportations and evacuations conducted by both Nazis and the Soviets, among other factors.
The book is based mainly on Jewish, Zionist and mainstream sources. It concludes that a sizable share of the Jews found missing during local censuses after World War II, which have so far been counted as “holocaust victims,” had either emigrated (mainly to Israel or the U.S.) or had been deported by Stalin to Siberian labor camps.
This is the slightly edited second edition, with an updated foreword by Professor Arthur R. Butz and an important epilogue by Germar Rudolf. It compares Sanning’s study with a mainstream investigation into the numerical dimension of “the holocaust,” which appeared eight years after Sanning’s first edition.
This study was designed to refute Sanning’s work. However, both studies come to similar results for Jewish population losses in all European countries once ruled by the Nazis, except for two: Poland and the Soviet Union. These two countries harbored the vast majority of the world’s Jews prior to the war.
While Sanning dedicated the majority of his book to a thorough study of both countries’ demographic developments, the mainstream book meant to refute him remains notably silent on those subjects.
Also, while Sanning investigates worldwide Jewish migration patterns prior to, during and after the war, his detractors ignore the topic and simply assume that every Jew missing in Europe today was killed by the Nazis—as if there had never been a massive Jewish emigration from Europe during and after the war.
