Justifying My Existence – Taki’s Magazine

It is the tragic reality of my being that Im forced to justify myself every time someone learns what I did in the past and what Ive been thrust back into doing in the present. When Im fortunate enough to be in a room with people who have no idea who I am, if Im asked what I do for a living, I always answer ceramic lobsters, because theres no better way to ensure dead silence and zero follow-up questions.

But more often than not, Im forced by my infamy to give an honest answer: I attempt to correct the historical record regarding the Holocaust, primarily by sniffing out and exposing fake artifacts and fraudulent or improperly-used documents.

And thats when I get the almost inevitable response: Why?

The why argument goes something like this: Why make a big deal about fakes or frauds in Holocaust history? Isnt theessenceof the Holocaust still true? Jews suffered and died, right? So all youre doing is empowering those who would take your work and deny the whole thing. Even if this or that gas chamber is fake, why point it out?

And my usual reply to the why question is: I do it precisely because people like you are so quick to ask such a fucking inane question.

In no other field are fakes, frauds, and forgeries tolerated as they are in Holocaust history. And in no other field are the people who try to sort the fakes from the facts so ruthlessly attacked and (in many countries) imprisoned.

Lets get something straightI am not the one empowering Holocaust deniers.Thathonor goes to the mainstream experts who manufacture or tolerate the fakes.

Lets look at the art world. Fakes are amassivescandal whenever theyre exposed. No art historian is going to say, Well, that might be a phony Vermeer, but its such a nice pictureIll label it as genuine because itll help get kids interested in the Old Masters.

Professor Van der Hoogenmeep, have you checked to see if that new Rembrandt in your museum is genuine or not?

Meh. Whats it matter? Its purdy.

Sure, there have been cover-ups of artistic forgeries, but thats because the price an expert pays in the art world for having presented one is high. There are repercussions. For the forgers, too.

When someone responds to my revisionism with the why question, Ill ask them if Holocaust history is more important than art history. Typically, theyll say something like, Of courseHolocaust history is more important!Never again! Remember to never forget, and never forget to remember! Ill then close the conversation by pointing out that if I had said that my job entails sniffing out art forgeries, I wouldnt have been asked such a stupid question as Why?

Lets get something straightI am not the one empowering Holocaust deniers.Thathonor goes to the mainstream experts who manufacture or tolerate the fakes. Those are the folks whove polluted the history; Im just trying to sort that mess out. If you want to get angry at someone, get angry at them. Every fake I discovered or helped expose in the 90s was the product of people who shouldve known better:

For decades, the staff of the Auschwitz State Museum misrepresented an air raid shelter as an original state gas chamber. I exposed that fraud in 1992 after interviewing senior curator Dr. Francizsek Piper on camera.

After the opening of the Simon Wiesenthal Centers Museum of Tolerance in 1993, the curators took a 1961 Polish fictional film titled The Ambulance and reedited it to appear as found footage of a Nazi gassing of children. I torpedoed that sham in 1995.

For years, the officials at the Majdanek State Museum displayed a supposed gas chamberequipped with a window and doors that lock from the inside and open into the room. In 1994, the museums research director, Tomasz Kranz, admitted to me that it was actually a simple delousing room after I showed footage of the phony chamber on national TV.

The U.S. National Archives and the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum celebrated the museums grand opening in 1993 by collaborating on a book in which old Army Signal Corps footage of a Paris rifle range was repurposed as footage of a gas chamber. I uncovered that deceit the same year.

In 1996, Raye Farr (then-film archives director of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum) wrote a letter to me in which she revealed that the Mogilev footage (the supposed footage of the first Nazi gassing) was widely considered to be a Soviet fake. Ten years later, she was still gushing publicly about the footage being authentic.

In a 1994 interview with noted skeptic and acclaimed prop comic Dr. Michael Shermer, Michael Berenbaum (then-director of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and its research institute) conceded, after being quizzed about my work, that hed never actually examined the supposed gas chamber door displayed in his own museum as proof of the Nazis infamous murder weapon.

Not to be outdone, Jerzy Wrblewski, director of the Auschwitz State Museum, told the New Yorker in 1993 that he has neither the time nor the resources to deal with all the issues I raised regarding authenticity.

For good measure, I should add all the times that respected Holocaust professionals admitted to me (when they knew me as Stein) that the gas chamber at Dachau was a fake, built for show by the U.S. Army after liberation.

None of the fakes I uncovered or helped bring to the publics attention alter the basic reality of the Holocaust. Mass murders of Jews still occurred, on the Eastern Front, and in camps like Treblinka and Sobibor. In other words, the fakes inserted into the historical record by governments, archivists, and historians are notnecessaryto prove the Holocaust. Their presence serves only to undermine the integrity of the historical record, and rooting them out is a noble cause.

Those who denounce me as a denier are essentially saying that the fakes I exposed are the totality of the Holocaust. They are saying that Holocaust history cant survive without lies.Thatsgenuine Holocaust denial right there. The people who point to me and ask Why? should ask themselves what theyre afraid of.

The world is about to mark the 70thanniversary of the end of the war. Isnt it time to stop imprisoning people who call out the fakes and frauds in the historical record? Perhaps its time to view Holocaust history in the same way we view art history. Fakes are bad, and the people who expose the fakes are not necessarily villains.

Personally, I go about my work with a clear conscience. Not that there arent days when I long for the calm, uneventful life of a ceramic lobster master-craftsman. Oh well, theres alwaystomorrow, and a man can dream.

Coulter: Media ‘Strangely Reluctant’ to Pursue Specifics About Vegas Shooter


Friday on Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Company,” conservative commentator Ann Coulter questioned the media’s reluctance to aggressively pursue details about Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas. Coulter called it strange and suggested the media were content with knowing just the race and sex of the individual. “[N]ow that’s what I find most interesting – [the media] seem strangely reluctant to pursue this,” Coulter said. “They’ve decided, ‘He’s a white man. We got our story. Don’t look for any other facts.’” She denied she was a conspiracy theorist and said there were some other details that the news media could pursue. “I think the media wants to say it’s a white male,” she added. “They decided that from day one and any other information might change that narrative. And they simply don’t want to know. But as I pointed out in my column this week – this is how conspiracy theories arise. You won’t tell us this stuff. Oh and the woman shouting ‘you’re all going to die’ 45 minutes before the concert started. Do we know – OK, it’s probably just a crazy woman, but could we find out?
