Both the series Holocaust Handbooks and the series Holocaust Documentaries are registered with the International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) 1529-7748 and 2059-3872, respectively. The series Holocaust Handbooks was launched in 2000, and the Documentaries series in 2015, although the latter went dormant when YouTube banned us from that platform. The purpose of both series is to encompass in one place books and videos dealing with specific or general issues of “the Holocaust” from a revisionist – i.e. critical, unorthodox – point of view. We strive to give all of our books and videos a similar look and feel by editing, formatting and designing them following a certain pattern. The goals of these series are twofold:
- Publish university-style quality studies on special topics which can attract the attention and respect of scholars in the field.
- Publish popular books and videos which can enlighten average readers and viewer about revisionist points of view.
To insure a high quality, all publications of these series are peer-reviewed by selected and knowledgeable scholars. However, since nobody is infallible, mistakes are inevitable. We strive to correct them in new editions. If you have spotted any mistakes, please be so kind and inform us about it.
The first volume of the Handbook series, the anthology Dissecting the Holocaust., appeared in August 2000 under the imprint of Theses & Dissertations Press, a currently dormant subsidiary of Castle Hill Publishers. By late 2005, 20 volumes had appeared in this series (vols. 1 through 18, 20 and 21).
When Germar Rudolf, the then sole proprietor of Castle Hill Publishers, was arrested in late 2005 and imprisoned for 44 months by the German authorities for his publishing activities (primarily for Vol. 15 of this series, Lectures on the Holocaust; see his web site for details), his company went partially dormant, and no new volumes were issued during this time period. In 2010, a joint venture between Castle Hill Publishers and The Barnes Review (TBR) revived the series. The first volume to appear under the aegis of TBR was the 2010 monograph on the Sobibór Camp (#19). In 2012, Castle Hill Publishers started assembling German language books of the same or similar content, most of which had appeared many years before, in a similar series, for which a separate, dedicated German language website was created. It is currently offline, as it will be integrated into this current website, once it is turned into a multi-lingual platform.
In late 2013, Castle Hill Publishers formed another joined venture with CODOH in order to improve its market reach in the U.S. Parallel to this, Castle Hill Publishers renewed their dedication to the Holocaust Handbooks project by getting back into publishing new volumes of this series, starting with the two-volume study The “Extermination Camps” of “Aktion Reinhardt” (That book was replaced in 2021 by another study: The “Operation Reinhardt” Camps Treblinka, Sobibór, Bełżec). In late 2015, Castle Hill Publishers regained full copyright, editorial, and publishing control over the Holocaust Handbooks series. Until late 2023, all books added to this series as well as new, revised editions were published by Castle Hill Publishers. Since July 2017, with the appearance of the 3rd edition of the Lectures on the Holocaust (Vol. 15 of the series), all current editions in print of the series Holocaust Handbooks once more bear the logo of Castle Hill Publishers. Due to internal problems not to be discussed here, Castle Hill Publishers became insolvent in late 2023. In 2024, the British company Academic Research Media Review Education Group Ltd (Armreg Ltd) took over Castle Hill’s legacy, and has since republished all volumes of the series under Castle Hill license, and issued a new volume under its own imprint: Auschwitz Engineers in Moscow (Vol. 52).
Video documentaries were initially not officially part of any formal series. Since early 2012, Castle Hill Publishers have helped create documentaries which follow a similar philosophy as our book series. This assistance includes both financial support as well as editorial and peer advice. However, in 2015 it was decided to go ahead and also create a formal series called Holocaust Documentaries, which aims at producing attractive, feature-length, high-definition documentaries summarizing and popularizing revisionist research results. This effort was stymied in the summer of 2019, however, when YouTube decided to delete all our videos, erase all our accounts, and ban us for lifetime from using their platform.
Holocaust Handbooks and Holocaust Documentaries are non-profit projects. We publish revisionist books and video documentaries not in order to make a profit, but in order to reach the broadest audience possible. In order to remove all possible obstacles for anyone to obtain our products, we offer most our our books (as eBooks) and all videos for downloading completely free of charge. It goes without saying that we would not be able to do this if there weren’t numerous grateful individuals who show their appreciation for our work by either purchasing these books and videos in hard or soft copy – see our shop – or by volunteering for translation, proofing, editing or marketing work (see our volunteer page) or by making a donation. This multifaceted help permits us to grow and improve our program as well as to launch outreach initiatives, for instances on campuses in the U.S., the U.K. and overseas.
A heartfelt THANK YOU to all our generous donors, volunteers and customers!
(And shame on all the scroungers who consume but never contribute… Come on! Donate!
If everyone of you gave just $5, we’d be rocking and shaking this world!)
