Udo Walendy (born 21 January 1927 in Berlin) is a German national notable for his contributions to historical revisionism on the origins of world war II and "The Holocaust"

Life

Towards the end of the war Walendy was drafted first into the Reichsarbeitsdienst (auxiliary force), then the Luftwaffenhelfer (child soldier in the air force) and finally into the regular Wehrmacht (the German military). He completed his secondary education in 1946 and then went to journalism school in Aachen. From 1950 to 1956 he studied political science at the Hochschule für Politik in West Berlin, where he received his diploma.

Afterwards he worked as the director of a folk high school in Herford and as the business leader of an employers' association in Bielefeld. In 1965 he founded the Verlag für Volkstum und Zeitgeschichtsforschung ("Publishing House for Folklore and Contemporary Historical Research") in Vlotho. In 1999 ownership of the publishing house was transferred to his wife, since Walendy was barred from directing it due to his criminal convictions. He maintains close contact with the Belgian revisionist organisation Vrij Historisch Onderzoek (VHO).

Activity as author and publisher

Walendy oversaw the publication of numerous works of historical review and revision. These included:

  • In 1965 he self-published Wahrheit für Deutschland – Die Schuldfrage des Zweiten Weltkriegs (Truth for Germany - The Question of Guilt for the Second World War). In 1979 the was listed by Germany's Bundesprüfstelle für jugendgefährdende Medien, a form of censorship still in force and used principally against any revision of the Official Narratives of World War II and "The Holocaust". This restriction was lifted in 1994, after a long legal battle, on the grounds that Walendy's constitutional rights had been violated. A renewed attempt to have the work listed was abandoned in 2001 due to a negative assessment of the chances of success in the event of another court case.
  • Numerous copies of the historical revisionist magazine series Historische Tatsachen,[1] which continues to be published by the Vrij Historisch Onderzoek (VHO) in Flanders. Its very first edition from 1974 contains a German translation of Richard Harwood's booklet "Did Six Million Really Die?".
  • The German translation of Arthur Butz's book The Hoax of the Twentieth Century, which discredits much of the evidence used to promote "The Holocaust" Official Narrative.

In 1996 at the tender age of 69 Walendy was sentenced to 15 months imprisonment - increased on appeal to 2.5 years without possibility of remission. [2][3][4] He is one of thousands of people to have been imprisoned by modern freedom-loving Germany for no reason other than authoring, distibuting and/or promoting literature which questions the Official Narrative's of World War II and "The Holocaust".

A Document by Udo Walendy

TitleDocument typePublication dateSubject(s)Description
File:Truth for Germany.pdfeBook1965World War II
Historical revision
Scholarly questioning of the official (victor's) narrative of World War II as "The Peoples' War" or "The Good War". A narrative that is quintessentially ideological in laying blame for the biggest humanitarian catastrophe in history to date on Germany alone. The book, together with his subsequent publishing activities in the field of historical revision have earned this meek and self-effacing man one term of imprisonment and several other convictions in 'Freedom-loving' Germany.
