Professor Michel de Bouard, former inmate at Mauthausen, admits Holocaust record is "rotten to the core", rife with "fantasies" and "exaggerations"


Michel de Boüard

In 1986, Michel de Boüard, former inmate at Mauthausen, honorary dean of the Faculty of Letters at the University of Caen, member of the Committee for the History of the Second World War, member of the Institut de France, said:

In the monograph on Mauthausen that I published in Revue d’Histoire de la [Deuxième] Guerre mondiale in 1954, I mentioned a gas chamber on two occasions. When the time of reflection had arrived, I said to myself: where did you arrive at the conviction that there was a gas chamber in Mauthausen? This cannot have been during my stay in this camp, for neither myself nor anybody else ever suspected that there was one there. This must therefore be a piece of ‘baggage’ that I picked up after the war; this was [an] admitted [fact] but I noticed that in my text - although I have the habit of supporting most of my affirmations by references-there was none referring to the gas chamber . . . (Ouest-France, August 2-3, 1986, p. 6).


In response to The Journalist's question:

You were president of the Calvados (Normandy) Association of Deportees, and you resigned in May, 1985, why?

he said:

I found myself torn between my conscience as a historian and the duties it implies, and on the other hand, my membership in a group of comrades whom I deeply love, but who refuse to recognize the necessity of dealing with the deportation [ 1] as a historical fact in accordance with sound historical methods. I am haunted by the thought that in 100 years or even 50 years the historians will question themselves on the particular aspect of the Second World War which is the concentration camp system and what they will find out. The record is rotten to the core. On one hand a considerable amount of fantasies, inaccuracies, obstinately repeated (in particular concerning numbers), heterogeneous mixtures, generalizations and, on the other hand, very close critical studies that demonstrate the inanity of those exaggerations. I fear that those future historians might then say that the deportation, when all is said and done, must have been a myth There lies the danger. That haunts me. (Ibid).

  1. Professor Michel de Bouard is of course a French academic, and he wanted to bring some truth and sanity to the "holocaust" story. But today there are absurd laws in place regarding "holocaust denial" in France, and so honourable men and women are being persecuted, fined and imprisoned for speaking out publicly.

    But the news media outlet 'The Huffington Post', dated 18 September 2015, offers some hope that not all is doom and gloom in France. Because, a Historian named Stephanie Courouble-Share has written a piece saying;-

    "As a Specialist in Holocaust Denial, I give seminars at Yad Vashem on the subject for French teachers who come there to improve their knowledge of the Holocaust. Unfortunately, Holocaust Denial is rampant in French classrooms and teachers are bombarded with expressions of denial from their students."

    Well, our heartfelt response to Stephanie's concern is;- "Yippeeeee - tres magnifique - viva La France!" Congratulations to all you French students - whether you study in schools from Dunquerque in the north, to Cannes in the south; or from Brest in the west, to Strasbourg in the east - please keep up the pressure on your teachers, requesting from them that they supply you only with truthful information and facts which have been verified and documented by credible, independent researchers.

    Anyway, poor Stephanie goes on to write;- "Maybe one day, Israeli students will also have doubts."

    Yes - let's hope so, because if Jewish youngsters can manage to break through this monstrous wall of holohoax lies and fabrications then there might be some hope for the world after all.

    But the deeply despondent Stephanie finally finishes up wailing;- "How should historians, associations and activists who fight Holocaust Denial react to this situation? If we don't react, we leave the door open, creating a dangerous precedent. However, if we do react with public condemnation, we only increase the exposure of these deniers."

    Oh dear, I can acutely feel poor Stephanie's pain and anguish, and can readily understand the dilemma she faces; but alas, I have no sympathy for her at all. The "holocaust" has been debunked long ago by responsible researchers and historians, and for Stephanie to be sobbing and pleading to Yad Vashem at this late stage to supply her with the necessary evidence to satisfy French students is not going to succeed.

    Yad Vashem has nothing in its archives to prove that a holocaust existed - all they've got are lots of names and photographs of people who died in the war, or families who lost trace of their loved ones due to the post-war upheavals. Other than that, Yad Vashem can only supply Stephanie with the transcripts of the deeply flawed Nuremburg Tribunals, or the weird, and often fabricated accounts of these so-called "holocaust survivors".

  2. Where does what he is saying mention the Holocaust? He is talking about the concentration camp system an deportations, not the Jews.

  3. Stale copy-pasta off Faurisson's old article posted at vho. I have checked the source, and Faurisson lied through his teeth, as Bouard never said any such thing. But go ahead - provide a scan and prove me wrong.
