Thirteenth IHR Conference Set for May

Leading Revisionist Historians and Activists to Meet in Southern California

From around the United States and across the seas, scholars, activists and friends of the Institute for Historical Review will meet in Orange County, California, over Memorial Day weekend -- Saturday afternoon, May 27, through Monday afternoon, May 29, 2000 -- for the IHR's 13th Revisionist Conference.

A lot has happened since the last full-scale IHR Conference, and leading activists will have much to say about the major breakthroughs, as well as the formidable new efforts of our enemies, in the international campaign for greater historical awareness about the most hyped and taboo-laden chapters of history. In addition, scholars will report on new documentary and investigative discoveries that further shatter the icons of "official" history.

The full Conference program, including the names and topics of the dozen speakers, is still being worked out. But already the line-up includes:

  • Robert Faurisson, Europe's foremost revisionist scholar, will provide another of his witty and thought-provoking presentations that never fail to delight audiences.
  • John Sack, author and veteran journalist, will detail the furor provoked by the publication of An Eye for an Eye, his headline-making exposé of the brutal mistreatment of ethnic Germans by Jewish Communist authorities in postwar Poland.
  • Ernst Zündel, Canada's leading revisionist activist, and prominent German-Canadian civil rights figure, will report -- in his typically irrepressible and upbeat style -- on the latest in his courageous international campaign for greater awareness of suppressed history, and to restore the honor and good reputation of his people.
  • Ted O'Keefe, IHR book editor, will present a bombshell dissection of the influential "Schindler's List" legend.
  • Mark Weber, IHR Director, will deliver the keynote address, as well as an iconoclastic scholarly presentation.
  • Greg Raven, IHR associate editor, will serve as MC.
  • Bradley Smith, veteran free-speech activist, will tell how his student outreach work has shaken up one campus after another across the country.

Details about additional speakers will be announced soon.

As those who have attended in the past know, an IHR Conference is an unforgettable experience. It's a special opportunity to meet, hear and converse with the stalwart scholars and cutting-edge activists who are making headlines -- and history -- in their courageous fight to bring history into accord with the facts. It's also a wonderful occasion for making new revisionist friends from around the globe, or renewing old friendships -- all in the sunny ambience of southern California.
