The Nizkor Project: Remembering the Holocaust (Shoah)

Discussion of Zündel's UFO "Expedition"

[UseNet headers trimmed]

Date: 28 Aug 1995

I have with me two brochures from "Samisdat" (Zündel's publishing house), in which he discusses the now famous "Nazi UFO base" issue.

These constitute a most telling tale on the sanity and/or honesty of this "leading revisionist scholar".

Here are some of the highlights:

1) A small photograph, showing a few serious-looking fellows sitting around a table. The photo is captioned "German UFO control bunker" (!!).

2) Photographs supposedly showing "German scientists at work in the Antarctic". In one of them, one can see a penguin staring with amazement at one of these "scientists" (it is not clear if the penguin is a "pure-blooded Aryan" or not; maybe we should check its earwax, Eh Griswold?).

3) A long article from Zündel, announcing his plan to launch an expedition to the South Pole, to look for "Hitler's Flying Saucer Bases and the South Polar Opening into Inner Earth". This is *not* a joke; he actually wrote this. Zündel also asks for donations, to cover the expenses for the trip.

4) Zündel writes that he had discovered some of the German scientists who worked on the "Nazi UFO" project (!!).

5) An outline of the planned expedition, including a drawing of a large airplane, that has "Samisdat" written on it; on its tail there is a large swastika.

Is Zündel positively insane, or is he doing it for the money? This may well be a way to swindle money out of his gullible followers. And if that's the case, maybe all his Holocaust-denial activity is really motivated by good old greed?
