[Paul Fromm sent me this. I was chatting to someone else who was
saying what a huge loss he was to “revisionism”. I’ve heard his name
but not studied his work. What I will say is this: I don’t think we
must call it revisionism. That’s what our enemies call it. It is
merely a search for the TRUTH and a publication of the TRUTH, which
was STOPPED BY OUR ENEMIES. Any white person who goes in search of
the TRUTH, for spreading it among other whites, is, in my view,
achieving the HIGHEST GOAL that a white person can achieve. The
TRUTH and our survival as a RACE is all that matters. Everything
else is baby stuff. But the TRUTH is CRITICAL for PROGRESS. You
CANNOT have ANY PROGRESS without the Truth. This is why Jews cannot
really progress, except by hanging on to our coat-tails. Jan]
Fredrick Töben (1944-2020) R.I.P.
Toben visited Canada several times and was sponsored
as a speaker by the Canadian Association for Free
Expression. He founded the Adelaide Institute. He
dedicated half his life to fighting the vitriol, lies
and hatred against his German people. Memorials are
planned for him in Vancouver and Toronto.The following
obituary was published online by the British
nationalist magazine Heritage and Destiny (H&D) —
Dr Fredrick Töben (above, second left) at the Newmarket Hotel, Port Adelaide, South Australia with (left to right) the late Jock Spooner (H&D patron); a visiting Cuban friend; Peter Hartung (Töben’s Adelaide Institute colleague); and Dave Astin.
H&D greatly regret to report the death of Dr Fredrick Töben, the German-Australian revisionist historian. Dr Töben died yesterday three weeks after his 76th birthday, having been seriously ill for the past two or three months.
Fredrick Töben came to Australia from his German birthplace as a ten-year-old boy when his parents emigrated. He studied at Victoria College of Wellington, New Zealand; Melbourne University; and Stuttgart University.
In the late 1970s Töben lived in Rhodesia towards the end of that country’s struggle against Black Marxist revolutionaries. After a year teaching in Nigeria, he returned to Australia teaching at various institutions in the state of Victoria during the early 1980s.
Töben’s dismissal from his teaching post in 1985 led to a five-year legal battle. He eventually won damages against the State of Victoria and relocated to Adelaide, South Australia, where he formed the Truth Mission in 1994, becoming Adelaide Institute a year later.
This produced a series of ‘Holocaust’ revisionist publications, and led to Töben being targeted by Jewish and ‘anti-fascist’ organisations worldwide, while he became part of an international network of revisionists attending conferences sponsored by the Institute for Historical Review (IHR), and later The Barnes Review, serving on the latter’s Board of Contributing Editors until his death.

In 1998 he was arrested in Germany under that country’s notorious laws restricting free research and discussion of historical topics, spending seven months in prison.
In October 2000 the Australian Human Rights Commission ordered Töben to remove parts of the Adelaide Institute’s website, triggering years of appeals and efforts to enforce the judgment.
Eventually in 2009 Töben was jailed for three months in Adelaide for contempt of court.
Three years earlier Töben had travelled to Iran to speak at the Tehran International Conference to Review the Global Vision of the Holocaust, promoted by then Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. This event attracted worldwide publicity and intensified the targeting of Töben and other participants.
In October 2008 while in transit at London’s Heathrow Airport, Töben was seized from his plane and served with an international arrest warrant issued at the request of German authorities who wanted to jail him again for articles published on the Adelaide Institute website.

This was expected to be a rapid ‘rubber-stamping’ procedure, but soon after Töben was taken into custody, Dr David Duke telephoned Lady Michèle Renouf in London to alert her to the arrest. Lady Renouf mobilised a specialist legal team of solicitor Kevin Lowry-Mullins and barrister Ben Watson, resulting in a historic legal victory against the Federal Republic and their Crown Prosecution Service allies.
After a month in Brixton prison awaiting the London court’s decision, Töben was freed and returned to Australia.
Persecution by the usual suspects continued, and a legal action for court costs resulted in Töben being declared bankrupt and having his passport confiscated in 2012.
While there was a short period in 2018-2019 when there were serious disagreements between Dr Töben and H&D, these differences were resolved long before his death. We salute Dr Fredrick Töben’s memory as a valiant fighter for historical truth and justice.
