This email interview recently took place between Dennis Wise & 12bytes.org
Dennis Wise is a film maker from the U.K. who has really stirred up the pot with a ground-breaking documentary titled ‘Adolf Hitler: The Greatest Story Never Told‘. I found his film during my research for my article, ‘Rescuing Israel: The Holocaust‘.
The 24 part documentary film, with another part possibly yet to come, provides the viewer with a rich visual and oral history of Germany’s role in World War II with a central focus on the man who many believe was one of the most evil men that has ever lived. The reality is much different of course and Dennis has done a fantastic job at exposing the lies and giving the truth a platform in a way the mainstream media cannot.
12b: Obviously anyone who has the audacity to question the historical record regarding Germany’s involvement in World War II, particularly the Jewish holocaust aspect, is opening themselves up to attack by a variety of pro-Jewish organizations and, in some countries, is subject to be thrown in jail. For the record, do you see yourself as being anti-Semitic or racist and why do you think such labels are so readily applied?
Dennis: I am neither a racist nor anti-Semitic. Some will find it hard to believe simply because they have been fed lies and misinformation about the Third Reich and Adolf Hitler. There were many non-whites of different cultures and creed who fought for Germany in World War II, even Jews, and they were not segregated like the black Americans in the US army. This was a truly racist US government which used the likes of Jesse Owen in their propaganda against the Third Reich.
The labels are readily used because of the deceitful but highly successful campaign directed at the public since 1945. Children of each generation (just as their parents) are taught in school and then later they hear it propped up in the media and Hollywood. Without themselves researching, they will never know the real Adolf Hitler.
12b: From an interview you did with Deanna Spingola of RCN Radio, I gather that your journey began when you were about 12 when you asked your father why Hitler “killed all those Jews”. Of course the culmination would come many years later with the making of the film. Although you gave some detail as to what transpired during that gap, could you perhaps provide a bit more? Specifically any notable revelations or milestones along the way, be they in the form of personal experiences, books, film, and what role the world wide web played in your research.
Dennis: What I learned from my father about Adolf Hitler completely changed my way of thinking. They call it today “thinking outside the box.” I became aware of the bias in comics about the evil “Nazis” and in school I always had to stay silent on the subject of the holocaust. I had also become aware of the shock and horror on the faces of my friends just hearing the name Adolf Hitler. As a teenager I would get bored watching war movies as the script was always the same and even today rarely give the modern ones a second glance the propaganda is so bad.
I found I was able to read between the headlines for instance, when Britain would go to war in some far off place. I lost count of the times I rolled my eyes when I heard Tony Blair say, “We must help the Iraqi people.” He and Bush don’t care much for them now do they?
Simply, without the internet it would have been impossible to even attempt the documentary.
12b: Personally I am very interested in current geopolitical events and the positive alterations the activist movements of the day are having upon our roller coaster ride to hell. Why is the true history of nearly a century ago relevant today, other than from a purely historical point of view?
Dennis: Because if you understand the documentary you will see the same is happening today. The age old tactic of ‘blacken the leader and invade as the good guys' has always worked, until Syria. A lot of people can now associate with Iraq, Libya and Syria but they still can’t see the link with National Socialist Germany. David Icke and Alex Jones try to convince us that the Nazis are behind the New World Order. Something just too ridiculous for words.
12b: It is my understanding that the Reichstag fire may have been a false-flag event orchestrated by key Nazi officials to gain public support for the invasion of Poland, and that Kristallnacht may have been orchestrated by the Jews. The film seems to dispute both theories and I'm wondering how you came to your conclusions?
Dennis: There is no evidence to suggest that the National Socialists themselves set fire to the Reichstag, only allied speculation. Following the fire, certain measures or restrictions were put into practice, but that is not proof. It would be just as easy to make a case for a communist plot. The National Socialists finally gained power after years of struggle. When Hitler first joined the NSDAP with not much more than a roomful of members, there were 6 million Communists in Germany who saw Hitler as a joke. Once he gained power, there were plenty capable of burning down the Reichstag out of hatred, frustration and anger.
12b: My research strongly indicates that there was no policy, written or otherwise, regarding the alleged mass extermination of the Jews and that there were no homicidal gas chambers in any of the camps. What I have not yet researched was whether there were a significant number of illegal killings of Jews by other means and, if so, to what extent. Do you have any knowledge in this area?
Dennis: I think in any war there are atrocities on both sides. War is horrible and brutal. Emotions run high when family and friends are being killed and revenge is part of human make up. To say one side only committed atrocities and the other side didn’t is being naïve. I have no doubt some Jews may have been killed illegally just like I have no doubts that many Germans were also.
12b: Much like the rest of us, I see the majority of the Jewish people as being victims of a historical fantasy (holocaust) that is continually leveraged to drastically alter government policy on a global scale, to the detriment of all mankind. What are your thoughts on this?
Dennis: Yes, in continually pushing the Holocaust, it helps them in being portrayed as victims, when in fact they are actually the most powerful and aggressive country in the region.
12b: My awakening began in earnest about 15 years ago when I began studying what I call the “child torture for fun and profit industry” which is about highly abusive behavioural modification programs for troubled teens. Then 9/11 occurred and my investigation into that event led everywhere else, literally. I soon realized that everything I thought I knew was stripped from me, leaving an uncomfortable void that took a lot of research to re-fill with the truth. What has your “trip” been like and what subjects other than World War II interest you?
Dennis: The Kennedy assassination and 9/11 shows us just how much governments can ‘cover up' without too much trouble. Some of the government's line on 9/11 is pure fantasy world and yet millions still believe them. My favourite is that, in all the plane crashes, never before in all of history has the black box not been found, whether at the bottom of an ocean or high up in the mountains. According to the US government not one of the black boxes from the supposedly four planes had been found. Now what are the odds on that?
12b: From both a positive and negative perspective, what feedback has the film generated? Has it met your expectations thus far?
Dennis: The film has had a really positive reaction and I have even been informed by viewers as ‘life changing', depending on how they view the world today. The film was set out to show a more balanced and truthful account of World war Two. So yes it has surpassed all expectations.
12b: What message might you have for the white supremacists/no-Nazis/Skinheads of the world?
Dennis: That their view of Hitler is wrong. The Hitler they admire never existed. He would never have been a member of the Ku Klux Klan.
12b: Now that your famous, what’s next?
Dennis: I am not sure but World War II does fascinate me. The series has taken a huge amount of my time, so I will probably take a break before deciding.
