Bradley Smith: Background

Personal Background:

According to an autobiographical work, Bradley Smith tried his hand at many things during the first period of his life. He worked in rail yards, milk plants and the construction industry; he drove a Good Humor ice cream truck and owned a bookshop. He was married twice. He served in Korea and traveled to Vietnam in the hope of becoming a war correspondent.

His life changed, he says, on the day he read an article by French Holocaust denier Robert Faurisson entitled “The Problem of the Gas Chambers, or The Rumor of Auschwitz.” From Faurisson he moved on to Arthur Butz's The Hoax of the Twentieth Century. Bradley Smith, at the age of 49, had discovered Holocaust denial.

Smith's revisionist activities, sometimes in association with the Institute for Historical Review (see below), were based from 1980-1997 in Hollywood and Visalia, California. In 1997 Smith moved to Mexico, where he has been located since. His frequent requests for money from readers of Smith's Report indicate that for years, Holocaust denial has been his primary source of income.
