HC Reference Library

No hay mal que por bien no venga, says a Spanish proverb. There is nothing bad that doesn’t also bring some good.

When Yuku unexplainably pulled the plug on the RODOH forum, the reference texts collected throughout that forum’s existence (transcriptions/translations of documents, eyewitness testimonies, articles and excerpts from historical literature, plus my photos taken at Sobibór in October 2008) were suddenly off the web. This was unfortunate insofar as some of the reference threads had attracted considerable interest (judging by the number of recorded views) and/or were linked to in articles on this blog site, whose readers thus got to see only Yuku’s blue balloons when following those links, before being directed to another Yuku site.

Fortunately I had backup files of the vanished RODOH reference threads, which I added to the reference section of this blog site’s forum, after reviewing them and correcting transcription or translation mistakes and restoring the German special characters, quote marks, apostrophes and dashes that had been blotted out when the RODOH forum migrated from Ezboard to Yuku some time ago.

The HC Reference Library currently has 113 topics in four sections, which are ordered in the index below according to the subjects covered in each section that they are related to. Most of the texts are available in English transcription or translation, and one has even been translated into Portuguese for reference at our Brazilian friends’ excellent O Holocausto blog site. Where texts are available only in German (as is the case with most of the texts in the "Auschwitz" section), they will be translated into English as soon as possible, and Portuguese translations will also be provided as time permits. Broken links in blog articles to former RODOH reference threads have been replaced or will be replaced as soon as possible.

The HC Reference Library’s index below will be updated whenever new texts are added.

I hope this library will be as successful as its RODOH predecessor in providing information to readers interested in the subjects addressed therein.

Roberto, later I'll put the link (or a translation of the post) of this index on the holocausto-doc(blog), I did a quick count and there are about 111 translations of the Holocaust Controversies in Portuguese. I've been thinking about these translations (into Portuguese) and to put in a single post, and then as a link in the summary.

The reaction of big anger from deniers attests the quality of the texts published on the Holocaust Controversies.

... (I predict soon screams coming from the Cesspit, and its outsourced subsidiaries, when they read this post and the comments, lol).

A suggestion about RODOH (it was unfortunate this exclusion): wouldn't it be better to open it again in another forum server? I think it would be possible to open the RODOH again in another server(not Yuku) while all discussions are recovered or reorganized.
