Learn how to make copies, and then make as many as you can and physically hide them around your town, as well as several in safe places that only you and a trusted associate know of.

They want to erase all knowledge eventually and leave only serfs who can barely speak, let alone read write or think.

Thank you for saving that encyclopedia!

Never throw away old text such as encyclopedias or dictionaries. If you can, purchase them. At worst you can sell it on ebay for a pretty good amount.

I've seen a university scan books and google would host the information. After they scanned the books, they disposed of them. Looking back, and remembering the giant dumpster sized recycling bin, I now realize that was a book burning event sponsored by (((google))).

I must have been a librarian in a past life. Every time the idea of books being destroyed comes up, I instantly feel my body start building up a rage.

Librarians destroy old books all the time. Moldy/broken/water damaged books get replaced fairly often.

Librarians hate books. They mistreat them, scrawl all over them, and destroy them regularly. Books are to a librarian what beef is to a butcher.

What about the National Socialist book burnings? Whereby books on transgenderism, sexual liberation, and other such degeneracies were burned.

I have a good single book enclycopedia printed just around the 1930's discussing "whether or not the new system of government called "fascism" that has emerged around the world and created the economic miracle recovery of Germany will become widespread." Its a British printer not German.

Yo!! I was just going to mention that TV series when Insaw the title of the thread. I was like 8 years-old when my Mother was watching it and explaining about how horrible the Nazis were and blahblahblah. It took me like 30 years to slowly see how they’ve been inundating is with a reason smothering guilt blanket. EVERY FUCKING YEAR I have to her about some Holocaust movie. Assuming the atrocities in these movies are 100% true and not exagerrated or outright fabricated, do we really need to have a movie about it every year? How about an annual Potato Famine movie or a Khmer Rouge movie? How about 1 movie every 10 years that explores the Soviet annihilation of Ukraine or life under Ceaucescu? I’m sick of these fucking whiners.

In the few decades before WWII, there was: 1) the annihilation of Greek Orthodox (in 'secular' Turkey, under the 'Young Turks')

2) the Armenian Genocide (again those 'Young Turks' murdering Christians)

3) Holodomor

Hitler wasn't hunting Jews, he was hunting Communists! Not his fault that they happen to overlap.

This is true. There were many high officers in the Germany army that were Jews. People were always shocked to learn that. They have a cartoonish understanding of what ww2 was about.

I just looked up my 1966 complete Larouse encyclopedia and they don't mention the jew once. They describe the human cost like this : 41 millions dead, 6 millions political deportation, from all the countries involved.

Welp.. It's actually the first time I open these books (it's a series of 3 big books, all in french). Thank you grandma for the gift :)

And they describe the holocaust as persecution toward christian. They use Jesus crusifiction as an example of holocaust.

Head of British Psychological Warfare Executive (Propaganda), Victor Cavendish-Bentick in a handwritten note, wrote on Aug 27th, 1943,

“We have had a good run for our money with this gas chamber story we have been putting about, but don’t we run the risk eventually we are going to be found out and when we are found out the collapse of that lie is going to bring the whole of our psychological warfare down with it? So isn’t it rather time now to let it drift off by itself and concentrate on other lines that we are running.”

Thanks for this great idea. I have been trying to wake my spouse up to the lie that is the holocaust but he is so stubborn in his beliefs. He loves old books though and I’m almost certain he has an old set of encyclopedias (not sure the year) I will be checking those out and hopefully have something to help wake him up.
