October 5, 2001 - "Shattered! 50 Years of Silence: History & Voices of the Tragedy in Romania and Transnistria,", by Dr. Felicia (Steigman) Carmelly is now online in a new Internet Edition. Shattered! is the winner of four awards, including the Canadian Society for Yad Vashem Prize in Holocaust History (1997).

This anguished book brings together the apocalyptic horrors visited upon the victims, the depredations and the disgrace besmirching the perpetrators, and the perverse cruelty of ordinary citizens whose church-sanctioned anti-Semitism had stored up incendiary savagery for centuries.

Christian readers will have to assess their churches and search their hearts as they own the unspeakable outcome of falsification and degradation in the name of the Christian faith.

Those who are frustrated with yet another exploration of the Holocaust and who ask impatiently (if not self-righteously), "Can't the Jews forgive?", must be reminded that only victims can never forgive, and the Jewish victims of Christian cruelty have been slain.

- Reverend Victor A. Shepherd, Toronto

June 3, 2000 Two judgments from the Federal Court of Appeal (Canada) in the matter of Ernst Zundel's attempts to prevent the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal from completing its investigation into the alleged violations of the Canadian Human Rights Act are now available. The first "is an appeal from an application for judicial review of two rulings made by the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal in the course of hearing a human rights complaint made against Mr, Zundel. In the first ruling, the Tribunal ruled that counsel for Mr. Zundel could not engage in a certain line of cross-examination. In the second ruling, the Tribunal refused to qualify a witness tendered by Mr. Zundel as an expert witness. The issue in these appeals is whether Mr. Zundel's applications for judicial review of the Tribunal's rulings are premature on the basis that the rulings are interlocutory decisions made during the course of the Tribunal's proceedings."

The second deals with the question of "whether Ms. Devins is subject to a reasonable apprehension of bias, stemming from a now twelve-year old press release that was issued by the Ontario Human Rights Commission ... when Ms. Devins was a member of that Commission, in which the Commission, among other things, applauded a court ruling that found Mr. Zundel to be guilty of publishing false statements that denied the Holocaust." (Ms. Devins is a member of the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal the that is hearing a complaint brought against Ernst Zundel.)
