In the fall of 1984, a small group of Holocaust survivors formed a committee dedicated to building a permanent memorial to the memory of the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust.
The Holocaust Memorial Committee was formally established a year la
Among the Museum officials I had in mind, I was thinking especially of Michael Berenbaum, its Research Institute Director.
I warn the officials of the US Holocaust Museum and, in particular, Mr. Berenbaum, that tomorrow, April 22, 1993, they need not offer, as proof of the existence of Nazi gas chambers, a disinfection gas chamber, a shower room, a morgue, or an air-raid shelter.
This book is by Michael Berenbaum, and is entitled
The World Must Know: The History of the Holocaust As Told in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
It is understandable that in his "Bibliographical Note" (pp. 224-232) Berenbaum makes no mention of Pressac's 564-page book.
The choice of Berenbaum as the Museum's "scholarly" authority is of the same nature.
Berenbaum is an adjunct professor of theology at Georgetown University.
Visitors to the new Holocaust Museum in Washington - particularly American taxpayers, without whom it would not exist - have a right to demand an accounting from Mr. Berenbaum and his friends.
A recent article in the
Los Angeles Times
was headlined "Poll Finds 1 Out of 3 Americans Open to Doubt There Was a Holocaust.
(April 20, 1993) The doubts will increase.
A few days after the Museum's formal dedication, Berenbaum revealed to a newspaper:
It is not out of the question that Berenbaum will return to the analyst's couch when he grasps the grave consequences of his deception.
Berenbaum makes discreet allusion to a model that the Polish Communists built after the war, and which is still exhibited at the Auschwitz State Museum (Block 4, second floor).
I understand that a replica of this model may be displayed at the Holocaust Museum in Washington.
If so, why hasn't Berenbaum included it in his book?
Might he have learned that I often use this model to illustrate the physical impossibilities of the gassing operations it is supposed to replicate?

The Victories of Revisionism - Robert Faurisson's speech at the Iran Holocaust Conference 2006 - Radio Islam
In 1993-1994, that protégé of the French Jew Serge Klarsfeld and the American rabbi Michael Berenbaum, “Project Director” at the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, had been acclaimed worldwide as an extraordinary researcher who, in his book on Les Crématoires d’Auschwitz, la machinerie du meurtre de masse (Paris, CNRS éditions, 1993; English title: The Auschwitz Crematories.
The Machinery of Mass Murder ), had, it appeared, felled the hydra of revisionism.
Here, in V. Igounet’s book, he was seen signing his act of surrender.
