Germar Rudolf was born in Limburg, Germany in 1964. He graduated with the highest honors in chemistry from the University of Bonn in 1989. After completing basic training with the German air force, Rudolf did his doctoral work at the Max Planck Institute [for Solid State Research] in Stuttgart. He was set to get his PHD but he never received it.
This is because he dared to do independent research for the one historical event where that is verboten, the Holocaust. The Max Planck Institute had this to say about Rudolf’s independent research:
In 1995 Rudolf was convicted for inciting “racial hatred” in violation of Germany’s Holocaust denial legislation. Rudolf fled Germany in 1996 to avoid imprisonment. He sought political asylum in the United States, but was denied. He was deported to Germany in 2003. He spent 45 months in prison after which he was able to successfully immigrate to America where he continues the good fight to this day.
What did Rudolf do that was so horrible to warrant almost 3 years in prison? For testing masonry from various buildings Auschwitz for Prussian blue. A forensic test that could empirically verify the claims that Germans used Zyklon B to gas Jewish people. The tests did not produce results that were in line with the official narrative, hence the jail time.
Fred Leuchter was the first to do this study, but he was not qualified to do it in the way Rudolf was. Rudolf had this to say about Leuchter’s report:
In the end Rudolf tackled that hot potato and got burned for it. But that did not stop him, did not make he relinquish his convictions. And Holocaust revisionism is all the better for it. Thank you Germar for fighting for the truth!
