Light out of Fildon
Henri Roques should not have had his doctoral credential revoked; his work is the process of accepting or recreating the reasoning process which was used to condemn the German people, ad hominem. This same critical process is applied to the text of the Holy Scriptures and yet it is rejected for inquiry into the most heinous crime of the 20th century. Surely, this is politically correct, but it is absolutely injust. The historical narrative, as it is delivered to the public via media and to public school educators, is morally distorted because the motivation is the protection of special interests.

"The Confessions of Kurt Gerstein" is something rare, an academic textual analysis published as a popular book. Roques chose this project for his doctoral thesis to establish the "common text of reference" for Gerstein's several testimonies, which have often been used by historians and writers without regard for their actual content.

Reading this will be a challenge for those unfamiliar with the textual analysis techniques of the French academy, but if you can get through it you'll have the surprise of your life. One of the most referenced Holocaust testimonies in history is nothing more than the product of a highly disturbed, possibly insane man who sought to use the catastrophe of World War II to re-create himself as a hero and validate his own mediocre life.

Roques' exhaustively documents his book with all known versions of Gerstein's "confessions", including an unknown sixth version discovered by Roques' himself, backed up by correspondance he conducted with Gerstein's widow, and proves that three of the versions are frauds created after Gerstein's death.

Here, for the first time, you can read exactly what Gerstein stated, and the lies and distortions of people like Martin Gilbert, Leon Poliakov, Saul Freidlander,Rolf Hochhuth and many others are ruthlessly exposed. Gerstein's ridiculous fables defy common sense and the laws of physics, and so have been "modified" by many commentators in order to conform with reality. Other parts of Gerstein's statements, like Jews being forced to march up long staircases to jump into the blast furnaces of steel mills, are completely omitted by them. Roques insightful analysis of the texts is a remarkable accomplishment.

On the other hand, the the foreward and afterward bookended into the text by "Ronald V. Percival", aka Robert Faurisson, has to be scrutinized with great skepticism, especially in technical discussions where he clearly has no expertise. Percival/Faurisson does squarely hit the target with his analysis of Gerstein's little known interrogation at the hands of Commandant Mathieu Mattei, the French miltary justice who didn't buy Gerstein's story for a minute. Mattei undoubtedly concluded that Gerstein, the SS nobody in a menial position, was just one more of an army of self-proclaimed "Nazi resisters" who popped out of the woodwork and tried to make themselves out as heroes, and Gerstein got the surprise of his life when Mattei filed criminal charges against him.

The account of Roques' disgraceful treatment at the hands of the French Government, and the cowardly collapse of the French academy under government pressure is stomach-turning, especially when you note that the book never denies that the Holocaust happened. It becomes understandable when you consider how many interests, financial and political, have vested themselves in presenting Gerstein's accounts as factual, and how many academic and journalistic reputations would be ruined if Roques' did establish a "common text of reference" for Gerstein's statements.

The book is difficult reading, resembling a textbook in that you have to perform some exercises to understand the text comparison tables, but if you have what it takes, I highly recommend it.

Books like this are the catalyst missing today that offer documented forensic evidence rather than hearsay. The Internet is a catalyst but recently there is a movement to suppress documented forensic evidence regarding this subject. Those that object present no argument except the warn out canard and accusation of anti-semitic. Those who continue to use the 6 million number should do their homework, it has been deflated and disproved, yet the media continue to use it.

Here is the headline-making university doctoral dissertation that debunks the key "Holocaust" testimony of SS officer Kurt Gerstein -- the enigmatic, twisted Third Reich functionary who claimed to have witnessed mass gassings of Jews in 1942. In this closely argued study a French scholar subjects Gerstein's accusations to critical examination, striking at the very roots of the Holocaust extermination story. The stunning conclusion: not only are Gerstein's allegations of mass killings of Jews groundless, but prominent Holocaust historians have deliberately manipulated and falsified key parts of Gerstein's tortured testimony. This powerful exposé and its author made world headlines in 1986 when, for the first time in the nearly eight-century history of French universities, a duly awarded doctorate was revoked by government order. Gerstein's bogus "confessions" were the basis of the anti-German and anti-Catholic hysteria stirred by Rolf Hochhuth's play "The Deputy." Roques' study thus shatters the myth of a Vatican cover-up of Holocaust genocide. British historian Hugh Trevor-Roper (Lord Dacre) praised this study as "an entirely legitimate, scholarly and responsible work of Quellenkritik [source critique] on a limited but important subject." Michel de Bouard of the Institut de France declared: "Had I been a member of the jury, I would probably have given a grade of 'very good' to Mr. Roques' thesis." Includes transcripts and translations of all six versions of Gerstein's "testimonies," as well as facsimiles of the original texts and other previously unpublished documents and records. Translated from the French by Ronald Percival, who also provides a foreword. A scholarly revisionist classic and an indispensable resource for scholar and layman alike!
