Leuchter, Rudolf and the Iron Blues

Version 6.0.

  1. Germar Rudolf, The Rudolf Report, Ruediger Kammerer - Armin Solms (Hg), Das Rudolf-Gutachten, Gutachten ueber die Bildung nach Nachweisbarkeit von Canidverbindungen in den "Gaskammern" von Auschwitz, Cromwell Press, London 1993. This report is banned in Germany and therefore somewhat difficult to find. I am grateful to Margret Chatwin for obtaining and Gord McFee for translating the original German version of section 2.5 and note 16. Ulrich Roessler has helped with translating other portions some of which are mentioned below.

    A massively abridged English translation has appeared as The Rudolf Report, London: Cromwell, 1993.

    A 1997 version in German is present at http://www.vho.org/D/rga/rga.html.

    A woefully incomplete document that claims to be a translation of the Rudolf Report - minus the footnotes - appears at http://www.codoh.com/rudolf/rudreport/rudreport.html. The link to a German version, on the Zundelsite, appears to be incorrect. Inquiries to CODOH regarding whether this document is actually Rudolf's work and whether a complete translation is planned have gone unanswered.
