  • Editorial Notes

    • [Herbert Verbeke is a pseudonym used by Germar Rudolf, among others. According to a "confidential report" typed and inserted into an issue of Vierteljahreshefte für freie Geschichtsforshung, Verbeke is one person, full name Siegfried Maria Theodoor Corneel Verbeke, also known as Herbert Verbecke. But according to staff at the JHate blog (a blog about anti-Semitism), Siegfried and Herbert Verbeke are both real people and are brothers. Although Siegfried keeps a higher public profile, he and Herbert both founded the Belgian Holocaust denial publishing company Vrij Historisch Onderzook (VHO). Both Herbert and Siegfried have tangled with the law in Belgium over the years for their denial of the Holocaust. Herbert in particular is known for his affiliation with the radical right-wing organization Vlaamse Militanten Organisatie, which has a neo-Nazi or neo-fascist orientation. In the late 1990s, Siegfried and Herbert transferred control of their VHO publishing operation to Germar Rudolf. Rudolf was the driving force in integrating VHO with his own Castle Hill Publishing company and eventually merging the online presence of VHO and Bradley Smith's CODOH operation into a powerful Holocaust denial website.]
