About Mark Weber

Mark Weber
Mark Weber, historian and author, is director of the Institute for Historical Review, an independent “think tank” and publishing-educational enterprise based in southern California.

He is the author of many articles, reviews, and essays dealing with historical, political, and social issues, which have appeared in a variety of periodicals, and in a range of languages.

Weber has been a guest on numerous radio talk shows, and has appeared many times on television, including on the nationally broadcast “Hannity and Colmes” and “Montel Williams” shows. He has conducted countless interviews with television, radio and print journalists from across the United States, and from Britain, Germany, Sweden, Lebanon, Iran, South Africa, and other countries.

He was born in Portland, Oregon, where he was also raised. He studied history at the University of Illinois (Chicago), the University of Munich (Germany), and Portland State University, from where he received a bachelor’s degree in history (with high honors). He then did graduate work in history at Indiana University (Bloomington), where he served as a history instructor and received a Master’s degree in European history.

In 1988 he testified for five days in Toronto District Court as a recognized expert witness on Germany’s wartime Jewish policy and the Holocaust issue.

During the five years he lived in Washington, DC, he carried out extensive historical research at the National Archives and the Library of Congress.

He lived and worked for two and one-half years in Germany (Bonn and Munich), and for a time in Ghana (West Africa), where he taught English, history, and geography at an all-Black secondary school.

He has been Director of the IHR since 1995. For nine years he was editor of the IHR’s Journal of Historical Review.

    Yeah Weber has a lot on his plate right now with him disowning revisionism and everybody wanting him kicked out of the IHR.

    I agree with Weber to an extent, but he should realize it’s Peter Schaenk’s job to expose zionist power and it’s Mark Weber’s JOB to run the IHR, that’s the institute for historical review where historical events are researched.

    Edit: It’s David Duke’s job to expose zionist power……………………….

    Another interview is in the works for this week with Mark Weber in which he will discuss at length the article he published on Jan. 7, “How Relevant is Holocaust Revisionism?” This interview will be combined with the interview that is the current topic, which has not yet aired because of technical difficulties Peter had with his recording software. The plan is to play both interviews on Wednesday night.
