Bradley Smith Targets Holocaust Education At Georgetown

Holo­caust denier Bradley Smith, founder of the Com­mit­tee for Open Debate on the Holo­caust (CODOH), has reached out to George­town Uni­ver­sity to “inform” them that the university’s Jan Karski Insti­tute for Holo­caust Edu­ca­tion is pro­mot­ing Holo­caust myths for finan­cial gain.

In a let­ter to Georgetown’s pres­i­dent, Smith claims that the Insti­tute for Holo­caust Edu­ca­tion is merely the money-making ploy that cel­e­brates the “bloody vengeance wreaked on Ger­mans and Ger­many for lo, these 68 years so far, with no end to the gore-worshipping fes­tiv­i­ties yet in sight.”

He claims to be send­ing the same infor­ma­tion to “hun­dreds” of stu­dent orga­ni­za­tions and “other cam­puses and venues.”

In an inter­view on the anti-Semitic online radio pro­gram “Sat­ur­day After­noon with Car­olyn Yea­ger” on The White Net­work, Smith claimed that he is tar­get­ing George­town because the aca­d­e­mics there “are over­whelm­ingly Gen­tile and Chris­t­ian and we are try­ing to find out if any of them have the sim­ple decency…to take into con­sid­er­a­tion the mate­r­ial that we will give them.”  The White Net­work describes itself as “Whites talk­ing to Whites about White interests.”

Smith explained his strat­egy to Yea­ger, a fel­low anti-Semite and Holo­caust denier, say­ing that Amer­i­can uni­ver­si­ties, as well as the Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment and media out­lets, have been “totally taken over” by Jews and the Jew­ish lobby. How­ever, this sup­posed Jew­ish con­trol is par­tially the fault of Gen­tiles who “are will­ing to go against the truth to please the Jews.”

When asked if he believes the Holo­caust is pro­moted through a Jew­ish con­spir­acy, Smith replied that it’s “not a con­spir­acy. It’s a project. It’s wide open.”

Bradley Smith is most noto­ri­ous for plac­ing ads in col­lege news­pa­pers encour­ag­ing stu­dents and pro­fes­sors to ques­tion the Holo­caust. In addi­tion to espous­ing Holo­caust denial through CODOH, Smith also started a web­site with Yea­ger. She cur­rently runs a site called “Elie Wiesel Cons the World,” which asserts that it is “ded­i­cated to expos­ing the false Tes­ti­mony of the world’s most famous Holo­caust survivor.”
