I'm not entirely sure how well these will work, but they've worked for Chinese citizens before.

I found some very useful articles about it, you may want to save the text of the pages to your computer before the censorship begins.

Internet Censorship: (http://www.zensur.freerk.com/)
This will tell you what it is and how to get past it.

Proxies: (http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Bypassing_Internet_Censorship/Proxy)
A proxy is a term used for what they use to track and censor you, and also the tool you can use to get past them.

China: (http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Transwiki:Bypassing_the_Great_Firewall_o f_China)
China has the worst censorship in the world so far, so it may benefit you to look into the precedent.

A Guide for Travelers: (http://www.bravenewtraveler.com/2008/05/06/the-travelers-guide-to-bypassing-internet-censorship/)
This is for travelers, but may be of some use to you.

A List of Good Anti-Censorship Proxies: (http://www.webupon.com/Services/Bypassing-Internet-Censorship.60136)
These specifically are proxies meant to get past government censorship.


I hope that helps you all.

The rest of the free world is crossing their fingers for you. Good luck!

I'm not a German citizen, but I think it is very thoughtful of you to post that information. And besides, internet censorship is likely to spread to other countries sooner or later. We know that there are those that are trying and have their mind set on censoring "hate sites" (which would be the first to go) across the globe. Very motivated individuals. It would deal a server blow to white interests having the medium of the internet silenced. To be limited to "grass roots" could be fatal to some areas which have only a sliver of hope as it is. :(

Thanks Freigeistige for collecting these infos! :thumbup

When I look at the actions of my government lately I really am in fear to be locked away in the GDR2.0, cencored, brainwashed and robbed out by them. Google already filters a lot of pages from its result lists (including Skadi), other search engines will follow sooner or later. And the law that disabled net neutrality was passed on the lie of blocking child porn pages, but every thinking human should see what it really is for. Organisations collecting lists and lists with hate sites, ever more heathen symbols end on prohibition lists...one really needs not much fantasy to see where it will end.
That is, when people still ask questions, the most dont seem to do anymore :(

A while back I was discussing history with an American friend who is an expatriot living in Germany for over a decade. He is married to a German citizen and teaches at a university there (I won't name it because I don't want to blow his cover).

At one point the conversation became focused on "collective German guilt" for (supposed) Nazi war crimes. I rather forthrightly expressed my opinion that the German people have absolutley no reason to be carrying guilt (any more than I whose Southern ancestors owned slaves). Well, the exchange became very strained and seemingly artificial on his end. He retorted that there were some actions committed by Germans before and during WW2 that they should reasonably feel sorrow for either participating in or "allowing". I adamantly but politely disagreed and commented that I was surprised given his level of education that he still bought into the Holocaust®.

This pretty well ended our communication. He responded with a very canned, "I have studied that subject carefully and have absolutely no reason to doubt the veracity of the official records regarding that heinous event."

He then became quite suspicious and wrote things like, "I really don't understand where you're coming from nowadays. You have changed. It's as if your entire philosophical system has shifted, and I don't know you anymore." I can't help but wonder for whom he was writing such things and in such a stifled manner. I will probably never discover that because there has been no further contact. I don't want in any way to compromise his status in Germany.

What this event taught me is that we Americans take our (eroding) freedoms for granted and don't realise the gravity of the situation facing our German kinsmen.

How I do look forward to the day when Europeans will cast off the censors who are presently oppressing them!

There are so called ''White Nationalists'' on Stormfront who believe the Holocaust occurred.
Personally I think it is an irreverent subject. Although I don't like seeing it abused as a way of milking our nations and instilling guilt on our peoples. I would rather see it being used as a reason for geographical and ethnic segregation. Had the state of Israel existed before WW2, presumably all the Jews would had been living there or there would had been a country that would had accepted them upon their deportation.

Although thanks to meddling politicians, Israel has become another Liberia, two solutions that would had fixed two serious problems forever but never materialized. :(

I have been reading and posting at Stormfront for about two years and have found no White Nationalists who buy into the Holocaust®.

Given that Israel has since 1948 used "the murder of six million Jews in homocidal gas chambers" to justified its barabarity against the Palestinians, how on earth could it be "an irreverent subject"?

Some recommended threads that should be thoroughly read:

Anonymity on the Web: Privoxy/Tor (http://forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=38164)
Skadi Practical Online Privacy & Security Guide (http://forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=42800)

I would advise using Tor. It slows things down, but I believe it is safe.

It's not that I don't believe the holocaust happened, but I agree it's disgusting to have that kind of censorship. I don't get how it would be a crime NOT to believe in some historical theory. It's even forbidden to us to found anti-democratic partys! Again, I personally wouldn't participate, but what's the matter with democracy if it's not allowed to be AGAINST it?

Thank you, both Dagna and Freigeistige, this is actually very useful for someone interested in pluralistic opinions.

There is one thing that people like Robert Faurisson, Germar Rudolf, Jürgen Graf, Ernst Zündel, Horst Mahler and many others want more than their personal freedom - and that is rescueing the world from a monstrous fraud with enormous terrible consequences. For that they endure all the defamation and persecution. Many of them sit in prison now, they knew what risk they were taking when they began publishing but they took the risk anyway, only for getting the truth out to the world. They are the martyrs of our time and they did it for us! Should they have done this all in vain?

Please give them the chance to reach you, too. Before the internet their situation was hopeless. Today, with the internet, their message is just one click away - but most people still don't care. And how long do we still have the freedom to access their publications?

I think, this material is good for a start:

Video: Anonymer Autor: One Third of the Holocaust (http://onethirdoftheholocaust.info/)
Text: Jürgen Graf: Die neue Weltordnung und der Holocaust (http://www.voelkische-reichsbewegung.org/graf-die-neue-weltordnung-und-der-holocaust.pdf)

It seems to me that the early attempts at internet censorship are being made comical on purpose in order to make the idea less controversial. Again, it will end up being a gradual thing; from being able to access nearly every website until there is a limited few.

There is no way that the governments would spend the money they are on internet filters if they can be easily bypassed.

By the way, China's censorship isn't actually bad. If anything it is better than ours since they have almost nothing in terms of hate-laws and there is no way the government can monitor 1.2 billion people. Technically, DPRK would be the worst.

These sort of questions is the entire secret that this lie works. They are made to make you feel bad about it, and bad about that you 'offended' your friend (mother, wive, whoever near you), risking to loose him, then stop talking about it and eventually forget about the entire subject, silently assimilating into the blind mass.

My mother was born in '37, so she was raised in the war and when the post WWII Holocaust machinery came into action, people 'got opened their eyes'. I remember her saying: we didnt know that. That all came to light only after the war, and much later.

But the brainwash seems to work all too well, there are people who get hysteric when this topic is brought up, the guilt causes them almost bodily pain or something, no way to talk to them anymore. That is the really scary part of that trick. Why is that?

I think it is probably pretty safe to say millions died in WWII. What I don't agree with is the collective guilt thingee, where Germans are afraid to be proud of their Heritage. Since when are nations/peoples innocent and lily white? Time to move on, just make sure you are on the right side this time and don't ally yourselves with Muslim usurpers!

As far as censorship, I don't believe it will work. What works is having better ideas and informing the people of those ideas!

A few tips if you're browsing 'sensitive' sites from your workplace.
- always use a proxy
- remove your Internet history once you're done, or better, use a portable browser. Firefox has a portable version
- if you're browsing Skadi go to edit options and disable avatars, signatures, banner and possible all images altogether. If you're browsing a site with imagery considered hateful, use an ad blocker to remove them or disable the option to view images from your browser altogether
- don't act in a way to make other suspicious of your browsing activity, like don't check every minute if someone is looking at you

In Germany some videos on YouTube and Google results are banned already. That's why it's good to use a proxy so you can bypass the bans and access the information.

Angel of death - just exactly what is the German government afraid of, the truth? Seems to me that if their ideas are so powerful why would they need to ban others?

I just posted this link in the file archive and repeating it here, another safety tip because as some of you know, the thought police might use keylogging techniques to sniff around.


KeyScrambler Personal is a free plug-in for your Web browser that protects everything you type from keyloggers. It defeats keyloggers by encrypting your keystrokes at the keyboard driver level, deep within the operating system. When the encrypted keystrokes reach your browser, KeyScrambler then decrypts them so you see exactly the keys you've typed. Keyloggers can only record the encrypted keys, which are completely indecipherable. Unlike anti-virus and anti-spyware programs that depend on recognition to remove keyloggers that they know about, KeyScrambler will protect you from both known and unknown keyloggers. What's more, KeyScrambler provides protection without getting in your way. You don't have anything to learn about the program and you don't have to do anything differently, but with KeyScrambler your important personal information will be a whole lot safer.
