A New Cycle
That marvelous entity, the human body, goes through a process whereby it constantly renews its cells. Old, injured, or malfunctioning cells die off and new ones replace them. After a cycle lasting approximately seven years, the human body is completely renewed; all the cells are brand new, and the body starts a fresh cycle.
The Institute for Historical Review has just held its Seventh International Revisionist Conference and, like the human body, is about to embark on a new cycle. The trials and terrorism that plagued us in the past are behind us. We have been tried, but not been found wanting. The strength of the truth has sustained us and will continue to do so.
Through the generosity of our supporters, we now have a new, secure, and functionally efficient building from which we can conduct our business, part of which is bringing this journal to you. We also have an infusion of new blood, replacing and augmenting our staff, who with their energy and ideas will rejuvenate and invigorate the Institute and its work.
The IHR stands firm in its commitment to restore historical truth by bringing history into accord with the facts, and with innovation and un-swerving dedication during this new cycle we shall make sure that the truth is heard.
