Careful review of the Holocaust material published so far still leaves scholars and the public wondering: How could this tragedy ever have happened?; How was such a world-wide collapse of values possible?; Why was the Holocaust so terribly successful? These crucial questions are finally answered in 'The Holocaust Conspiracy'. By combining existing research with previously unknown findings, Dr Perl draws the inescapable conclusion that it was not apathetic inaction of the world's powers that made the Holocaust and the Final Solution so tragically ineffective. Using extensive documentation, he convincingly proves it was deliberate action on the part of many nations that kept millions prisoner in a hostile Europe. These deliberate actions are conclusively shown to be the result of conspiracies within individual governments and between governments. Here, also, a comprehensive analysis of the Holocaust policies of powers that until now have received relatively little attention or blame: Switzerland, The Soviet Union, Latin America, and the International Red Cross. "The Holocaust Conspiracy" sheds shocking new light on the plots and discreet actions of world powers to effectively support the Nazi genocide programs. You will alter your perceptions of many nations after reading this work.

Reading "Why the Germans? Why the Jews?" I learned how vehement anti-Semitism sprouted and grew in Germany that led to the Holocaust. Jews had been blamed for the assassination of Christ, a crime for which there could never be expiation. In 1965, the Second Vatican Council document Nostra Aetate, rejected collective Jewish responsibility for Jesus' death. Psychological, social and economic factors had also fertilized the growth of anti-Semitism, in Germany proper, in its occupied lands and in many other countries. Allotted space to his review wouldn't let me elaborate. Reading "While 6 Million Died", I learned how America and other nations ducked chance after chance to save Jewish lives. Being reluctant or refusing to grant refuge and preventing the rescue of Jews, those countries enabled the German death factories to operate incessantly. The Allies decided not to bomb the rail lines to the death camps and its death facilities. Had they done so, hundreds of thousands of Jewish lives could have been saved. A camp survivor said:" When we saw American or British planes fly overhead we prayed `Please drop at least one bomb on our camp, how beautiful a death it would be to know that I die because somebody cares." Winston Churchill summarized the consequences by stating: "The Holocaust was not just a Jewish tragedy; it was the world's tragedy, because the world did let it (the Holocaust) happen."
Dr. Perl's probing of the relationship between the Holocaust and today's international terrorism is very compelling, timely and should be of concern to all of us today and future generations. Hitler is quoted as saying (in 1940) "Cruelty impresses; people need a good scare." Nazism with its final aim of world domination used anti-Semitism, which was prevalent in many countries, to gain sympathy; terrorists do seek sympathy. Apparently, the ISIS today hve adopted the same tactics in Syria and Iraq as shown on TV. One exception: the ISIS say: "convert to Islam or die", during the Spanish Inquisition, in 1478, the Jew had the same chance. The Jews were not given such an option under Hitler; Jews converted to Christianity were doomed as those who chose not to convert. German soldiers had inscribed on their belt buckles the slogan "Gott Mit Uns" God is with us. 23 % of the SS were Catholics. Hitler, who was born to Catholic parents, and lived in a monastery for two years, stated:" by destroying the Jews I am doing the will of God." Nowadays, some acts of terror are committed by groups that purport to fulfill the will of Allah (God). In Lebanon, the Hezbollah (Party of God) purports the same. In 1945, German physicists and members of the military were on the verge of winning the race to acquire the first functioning nuclear weapon. For today's terrorists it is only a question of time until they obtain atomic weapons. Hatred of "the others" or the infidels has taken a tremendous toll in lives. We live in a world that is increasingly enlightened, perhaps technologically and academically, but increasingly darkened humanely.
There are many memoirs about the Holocaust and biographies from Holocaust victims telling the reader what has happened. I am a Holocaust survivor who have been sharing my life story with hundreds of life audiences and thousand of readers of my autobiography From a Name to a Number. 123 members of my extended family were murdered during the Holocaust. There are no graves and no anniversaries of their demise. This bitter reality burns through the fabric of my life like a scorching beam. I cry for all of them. The Germans enslaved me for three years. In my adolescent years, I could not learn to read and write, learn how to swim, fish, play ball, or discover the world. I could not discover myself, discover girls, and become a man.
Just as homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, communists and other undesirables were murdered--not for what they had done or said, but for who they were. I was a victim of insane cruelty for no offense or sin. I was condemned though never accused of any offense. I have been clamoring to know why. Regretfully, other holocausts may happen again if we let prejudice and evil reign. On March 8, 1986, President Assad of Syria talked openly about Syria's plan to commit another Holocaust; the sweep into Israel would wreak the apex of Israel's Holocaust (page 249).
Dr. Perl's work deserves recognition for his extensive research to contribute to the Holocaust literature." The Holocaust Conspiracy" is undeniably accurate as evidenced by the many illustrated documents in this book.
Western politicians met many times during the 1930s, but at no times did they consider even relaxing restrictions on Jewish immigration – in fact, their meetings did little in this respect. The anglophone democracies in fact wanted Jews no more than the Nazis themselves, did and influential right-wing religious leaders, especially in the US, used biblical arguments for the persecution of Jews. These ravings meant that many ordinary working class people in the UK, US and Canada saw Jews as much more a threat than the Nazis!
Politicians in the West, worse still, actively supported Hitler's policies, and ‘The Holocaust Conspiracy’ gives many examples of rulers in the UK, US, Canada and Australia showing their active admiration for Hitler. However, the book breaks down here. William Perl is totally unwilling to understand the real reason for their support of the Nazis: that Western governments were desperate to crush the power of the union movement and Communist parties who could have easily threatened their very rationale for existence via Communist or anarchist revolution. The Nazis did this in the most efficient way possible: by banning socialist parties and trade unions as soon as they established power. British, American, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand ruling classes would have similarly banned socialist parties had fear of retaliation become absent.
The later part of ‘The Holocaust Conspiracy’ relates to the planned extermination of the Jews by Palestinians in the Middle East – which is more of a threat now than ever, and Perl does not fail to recognise what such groups as Hamas and Islamic Jihad have been planning, leading to his important conclusion that another Jewish Holocaust could easily happen. Here, though, no mention is made of Western support to Muslim fundamentalists to protect Western interests (eg. radical Islamic groups against the PDPA in Afghanistan), nor the role of radical Islamic ideologies such as Wahhabism.
Nor at any point did Perl mention Trostkyite groups, who campaigned for a complete removal of restrictions on Jewish immigration. Such a move would have instantly saved six million lives in Europe and countless more killed by the Israel/Palestine conflict in the Middle East.
A shocking revelation on how Western governments supported Hitler and aided his genocide, but does overlook many of the motivations behind their policies.
