Historical Review Press - a Holocaust denial publisher
The Historical Review Press (http://www.ety.com/HRP/) is a Holocaust denial publishing company and website. It has been active since the 1970's publishing books and article by the likes of David Irving.
The book "Nationalist Myths and Modern Media. Contested Identities in the Age of Globalisation" edited by Jan Herman Brinks, Stella Rock and Edward Timms (London/New York, 2006) contains a mention of them in a chapted contributed by Michael Whine of the UKs Community Security Trust (CST). The section Nationalist Myths and Modern Media, can be downloaded via the CST website. The relevent section says:
"Throughout the 1980s and 1990s it was Hancock's Historical Review Press that was responsible for printing mostof the denial material published in the United Kingdom, and he also printed material in other languages for export to Germany, Scandinavia and theMiddle East. In 1994 his printshop was raided by the police in connection with the so-called Rudolf Report, a more sophisticated publication than its predecessors, which nonetheless employed similar techniques in attempting to prove by scientific analysis that the gas chambers could not have existed. Its author, a German citizen named Germar Rudolf, had a scientific background, but he was dismissed by his employers at the MaxPlanck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart when they realized he was abusing their facilities. Rudolf had links with both Hancock and Irving, the former publishing his report and the latter citing it in evidence in his civil action against Deborah Lipstadt.
Rudolf was eventually forcedto flee Britain following a German request for his extradition, and nowresides in the United States. Although Hancock was not prosecuted for distributing the Rudolf Report, he faced criminal charges at the end of2001 for the printing of other antisemitic material, but again escaped con-viction."
