Harry Elmer Barnes
Harry Elmer Barnes (June 15, 1889 – August 25, 1968) was an American historian, criminologist, sociologist and economist. He was one of the most influential historical revisionists. Barnes authored and edited many books which questioned and contradicted the viewpoint that Germany was solely guilty for starting World War I.
Around 1960 Barnes first read the works of Paul Rassinier, a prominent French Socialist who had been interned at Buchenwald-Dora during the War. Rassinier's books, published originally in French, disputed whether the Germans had a policy to exterminate the Jews of Europe. Rassiner argued that there were no gas chambers for the purpose of extermination of Jews at Buchenwald or elsewhere.
In 1961, Barnes oversaw the publication of David Hoggan's Der Erzwungene Krieg (The Forced War).
In 1968, Barnes had a heart-attack in his Malibu home where he died.
Barnes research papers and letters are housed at the library of the University of Wyoming at Laramie.
