More and more, we see critical reflexions on the Holocaust (as an image, as a tool for political benefit, as a mean of pressure for financial and political gains, and so on) and on Revisionism, as an infant discipline of critique in the historical field, its methods and aims, often suspected of concealed political agenda, or outright racism. Reflecting on it is like walking into a minefield. In some countries, it is forbidden by law! Think of that!
We are going to put here some contributions on these subjects coming from a variety of sources. It will not mean, of course, that we agree on all points. We just want to show that there is room for thinking. And time too.

We see the act of displaying a written document on Internet as the equivalent to displaying it on the shelves of a public library. It costs us a modicum of labor and money. The only benefit accrues to the reader who, we surmise, thinks by himself. A reader looks for a document on the Web at his or her own risks. As for the author, there is no reason to suppose that he or she shares any responsibilty for other writings displayed on this Site. Because laws enforcing a specific censorship on some historical question apply in various countries (Germany, France, Israel, Switzerland, Canada, and others) we do not ask their permission from authors living in thoses places: they wouldn't have the freedom to consent.
We believe we are protected by the Human Rights Charter:
ARTICLE 19. <Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.>The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on December 10, 1948, in Paris.
