« The Gas Chamber of Sherlock Holmes: An Interview with Samuel Crowell | Main | Happy Bed-time Story Hour with Andy Nowicki and Ann Sterzinger »


The Brown Pundits site (featuring Razib Khan of GNXP) is usually quite hostile to Pakistani nationalism/military and even the concept of Pakistan itself (Zachary Latif embraces a "noble lie" for liberalism narrative against his co-bloggers there). So I was surprised to see this there:
Sarmila Bose's narrative of scrutinizing a near-sacred narrative of war, oppression & massacre redeemed by a new order, only to be subjected to taboos, should be familiar to you.

Thanks for bringing this article to my attention. It's very relevant to Crowell's project.

A relevant passage from Bose:

"Scholars and investigative journalists have an important role in “busting” politically partisan narratives. And yet, far too often we all fall for the seductive appeal of a simplistic “good versus evil” story, or fail to challenge victors’ histories."

Another post from BP on the topic:

are thousands of references which develop serious questions about the
orthodox exterminationist version of the WWII. Just be aware of it,
make a minimum of studies and think with your brain. I was a believer.
After some time passed on the deep study of the "gas chambers" of
Auschwitz through the book of Pressac, I became a revisionist just
because as an engineer I know how to read and interpret plans. It takes
its time and it needs some technical skills, that's because so few
people is able to discuss seriously that matter. I include the
exterminationist "historians" on the group of those who don't have a
clue of what it is about. If not, they wouldn't have written so much
insanities about an alleged "industrial extermination plan" which
magically has left no traces on the tons of documents captured by the
Allies and on the places where it was supposed to have been carried
