Holocaust Revisionist banned from the Harvard Crimson is now selling his book in the Iowa State Daily and in The Journal at U Michigan-Dearborn.

Revisionist Bradley Smith placed an ad in the Harvard Crimson asking why Dwight D. Eisenhower, in his account of WWII published as Crusade In Europe, did not mention German weapons of mass destruction ("gas chambers"). The ad also asked for the name, with proof, of one person who was killed in a gas chamber at Auschwitz.

The Crimson was deluged with emails, letters and phone calls demanding that the ad be withdrawn. The Crimson did so, breaking its contract with Smith, apologized for running it one time, and the Crimson staff wrote that it hoped that those questions were never again asked in a student newspaper anywhere in America.

No one on the Harvard faculty dared try to answer Smith's two questions, and no one in the Harvard faculty stood with the student journalists to support a free press and a free exchange of ideas. Rather, Harvard faculty let The Crimson journalists hang and twist in the wind.

Now Smith is running an ad announcing a "blow-out" sale for his autobiographical book, Break His Bones, The Personal History of a Holocaust Revisionist. It is running in the Iowa State Daily and The Journal at U Michigan at Dearborn.

Smith says that in Break His Bones he asks many questions about "gas chambers," not just two, and many questions about "eyewitnesses" who claim to have seen gas chambers. "I am not a historian. You do not have to be a historian to critique foolish eyewitness testimony to gas chambers, and you do not have to be a scholar to value a free exchange of ideas and a free press."

"I'm a simple writer," Smith says. "Break His Bones is an account of my life, my family, and my friends as I discover revisionist arguments regarding the orthodox Holocaust story and attempt to take those arguments public. It's been an interesting trip, even when I have been mistaken, or foolish."
