Review

"If your book is ever published, it will be a very important book--VERY important!" He requested not to be named, so he wouldn't be professionally ostracized. -- One of the world's leading Hitler/Holocaust scholars --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Publisher

For SuperiorBooks.com, the opportunity to publish WHY the Holocaust Happened: Its Religious Cause and Scholarly Cover-Up is a rare honor. Seldom does a work of non-fiction so shake the accepted underpinnings of public thinking about a major historical event, in this case, the Holocaust. When we read the book, we at first found the unthinkable to be thinkable; then believable and, finally, we accepted its findings.

WHY the Holocaust Happened should have been and will yet become a mainstream work, but the wheels of the publishing industry grind powerfully slow; some kinds of controversy are not, at first, welcome; some subjects are taboo. This is what gave SuperiorBooks.com its present role as publisher of this book.

We were extremely impressed with the thorough documentation of Eric Zuesse's findings, based on his years of research into the private notes, letters and conversations that so incisively define the real Adolf Hitler. In addition, the author, as winner of the H. L. Mencken Award for "The Best Investigative Reporting of the Year" brings the kind of credentials to his work that argue strongly for its acceptance.

For the reading public, for institutions and for scholars, alike, WHY the Holocaust Happened is a wake-up call, a call for all responsible people to acknowledge the religious motivation for the Holocaust and to use that awareness in the interests of assuring that it never happens again. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author shows how the Bible, viewed by many to be "The INERRANT (can't have any errors) word of God" actually CAUSED the Holocaust.

Having read numerous other books pertaining to the Holocaust, I was stunned by what Eric Zuesse had presented. Paul of Tarsus, had rejected the actual teachings of Jesus and the small sect of Jesus followers led by James in Jerusalem, and had CREATED a new religion which rejected the LAW OF GOD outright, and actually cursed the very people who remained obedient to God by following HIS LAW.

NOWHERE did Jesus ever say that the LAW was to be abolished, yet Paul, in his zeal to attract as many Romans as possible to HIS NEW RELIGION, abandoned the law totally. When James and Peter and the brethren in Jerusalem attempted to put Paul back on track with Jesus's REAL MESSAGE, this started the long and ongoing war between Paul's NEW religion and Judaism.

The blatantly anti-semetic verses from Paul's Epistles and Acts and the Gospel of John are referenced. Sadly Adolf Hitler, like most German/Austrians, were brought up believing this INERRANT MESSAGE about the "God Of LOVE",

and the Holocaust of 6 million Jews (many of whom didn't even know that they were Jews until the Einsatzgruppen arrived), 3 million Poles and more than 250,000 Gypsies was the result of Pauls "Gospel Of Love".

FIVE STARS. Absolutely FANTASTIC.

Format: Paperback
This may be one of the most important history books of the decade. There is not much new to say about Hitler, right? WRONG. By carefully studying Hitler's early writings--something no one else apparently has done--Zuesse arrives at a completely new and profound view of the Nazi period and the holocaust. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
I consider WHY to be a valuable book. Amazing that this angle has not been pursued before given all the writing that has taken place since the Holocaust. I have been troubled by the seeming increase of racism and hatred as of late. This book answers the question as to why such a perpetuation and increase may be happening. In short, the gestational mechanism of such behaviour has been been unchallenged and left to continue its work because it has never been effectively identified. This book changes that. May it become widely read.

Format: Paperback
A superbly documented book, which finally solves the mystery of the events which led to the Holocaust. Highly recommended book. A must read for students and scholars of the Holocaust. This book pulls no punches and looks at prime source material, particularly Hitler's own words.
