Yup. (also here)

Recall that our denier most enamored of forgeries, Monstrous, told us that he knew of just 10 forgeries aside from about 100 EG reports that the Soviets or Brits or someone, depending on his mood, messed with. Monstrous wanted to keep options open on this so, despite many requests, refused to name these 10 forgeries. By not pinning himself down, Monstrous believes he's free to claim forgery whenever his argument collapses, or he senses trouble, as he did recently with Höppner's letter in his Plausible Deniability thread.
"World peace is certainly an ideal worth striving for; in Hitler's opinion it will be realizable only when one power, the racially best one, has attained complete and uncontested supremacy. That can then provide a sort of world police, seeing to it at the same time that the most valuable race is guaranteed the necessary living space. And if no other way is open to them, the lower races will have to restrict themselves accordingly."

Yeah, if the conspiracy is propped up by 10 forgeries, how hard is it to produce them and produce proof of their forgeries?

Can you educate me about Höppner's letter? I don't know this one.

Hoppner expressed concern that there wouldn't be enough food to feed the Jews and perhaps it would better to give them a merciful death (my paraphrase).
This will work pretty well, I thought I had a German version with a translation but I don't:

Maybe Stat Mech has a better copy.

From HC critique of Mattogno's view, with some basics: http://holocaustcontroversies.blogspot. ... ppner.html
From HC, discussion of the letter in context of summer 1941 policy evolution: http://holocaustcontroversies.blogspot. ... -1941.html
From HDOT, Evans' discussion of the letter in context: https://www.hdot.org/evans/

Thanks.
Is this an anti-denier document?
I can easily see how deniers may twist it around, claiming the food ran out because the allies bombed the supply lines, and there was no choice but to give the Jews a merciful death.

Not in 1941.
Besides, deniers want to claim there was no policy to kill Jews for merciful or any other reasons.

Which is why Weckert IIRC and our own little Monstrous claim it is a forgery.

Höppner's letter is a key document in the evolution of Nazi policy to one of extermination of European Jews.
"World peace is certainly an ideal worth striving for; in Hitler's opinion it will be realizable only when one power, the racially best one, has attained complete and uncontested supremacy. That can then provide a sort of world police, seeing to it at the same time that the most valuable race is guaranteed the necessary living space.

I'm going to put this here:

I have to say, I'm finding this person very amusing. He's a cut 'n ' paster of the first degree. It's very sloppy, it's Rizoli level quality. He's attracted a small following, including yours truly. However, I'm restricted to one post a week. I don't think he liked some of my answers.

You're lucky...I have been banned completely. John Wear doesn't like me. We have been crossing swords on Amazon for a few years now. I try to bust every little thing he says there. He has now withdrawn into his own little bunker at wearswar.

He whines about open discussion and debate but doesn't permit it on his own blog. I find that funny as hell.

I get updates from him, I keep meaning to reply but I've been busy lately.

Jeff

Yep...he is the hypocrite supreme. John always used to wear the hat of the "independent researcher" devoid of all prejudices. Now he cannot do this. His Antisemitism shines out like a beacon. I doubt he'll return to Amazon...at least here in the UK as he has burnt too many bridges now.

As to his technique, he relies heavily on cherry picking of sources. Most of his stuff comes direct from the Internet and the usual websites...mainly IHR. He does, however take a trip out to his local library from time to time. He likes to show himself off as a real historian by sourcing in detail all his quotes. The problem is, he will quote directly from an IHR article and give the source that THEY cherry pick from. It then looks as if HE has read the original source...when indeed he hasn't.

Sloppy.

The last time I debated him directly he was commenting on the numbers of dead at Dresden stating that the German report from 2004 regarding the numbers was wrong (even though he hasn't actually read it!) and to prove that he cherry picks from a variety of historians from Taylor to Neitzel, De Bruhl to Overy. The problem for him, as I pointed out, was that none of the above agreed with his view that "death toll estimates in Dresden of 250,000 people are quite plausible..."

My first reaction was to laugh hysterically, the second was to hunt amongst his footnotes to see where he was getting his information.

Turns out he extensively quotes David L. Hoggan's book, The Forced War: Why Peaceful Revision Failed. This is David Hoggan:
http://www.revisionists.com/revisionists/hoggan.html

David Hoggan is also the person behind "The Myth of the Six Million," though apparently this was published without his permission.

So, yes, a load of crap. Hoggan was known for twisting words and misquoting sources.

Just read the article. I noticed the mass quoting of Hoggan as well.

I noticed a lot of articles about Nuremberg. It's interesting how Nazi apologists like John Wear always quote US concerns about the legality of the trials and yet they post no concerns from German sources. I am currently reading the latest book on the Malmedy Trials controversy by Steven P Remy:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Malmedy-Massacre-Crimes-Trial-Controversy/dp/0674971957/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1507619255&sr=8-1&keywords=the+malmedy+trials

In the book Remy comments on how Germans viewed the war crimes trials that took place after the war as incredibly fair, much to their surprise and admiration. As Herbert Strong said:

The Courtroom (Malmedy trial) was filled with Germans most of the time, who during the trial, repeatedly expressed to me their admiration for the scrupulously fair way in which it was conducted...


By the way...have you noticed the article on the film "The Pianist"? John still prattles on about Elie Weisel wanting to leave Auschwitz with those nice German guards instead of staying behind to be liberated by those nasty Ruskies. I told him years ago the context of Weisel's decision to leave. It appears Johnny boy doesn't want to listen.

Tosser.

Later on, the US gave clemency to the people convicted in the Malmedy trials, as part of the need to re integrate West Germany to use them against the USSR. All of the death and life sentences were commutted and the convicts were eventually released.

You'll never hear deniers talk about that though. They're happy to repeat the lie that the Malmedy defendants were "tortured".

Indeed...and it is amazing the number of reviews and investigations carried out by the US to investigate the claims. The US authorities bent over backwards to appease those claiming abuses. All the investigations totally disproved any accusations of physical torture by so called vengeance seeking "new Americans"

:roll:

I never realised how much antisemitism was a big factor in the reasoning behind the likes of chief defense lawyer Everett, not to mention German lawyers and clergy members who took on the cause years after the court case.
