St. Martin's Press has dropped plans to publish in America a biography of Hitler's propaganda chief, Joseph Goebbels, branding the book an anti-Semitic, "insidious piece of Goebbels-like propaganda.""There's no worse way to compound a mistake than by not admitting it and not correcting it if you can," said Thomas J. McCormack, chairman of the publishing house."Goebbels: Mastermind of the Third Reich" -- which is already out in England -- was written by David Irving, a British author who contends among other things that Hitler did not know Jews were being exterminated and that there's no proof gas chambers at Auschwitz were used to kill Jews.

(Dec. 20) Rep. Donna F. Edwards offered a resolution on the House floor Tuesday that would disapprove of Florida GOP Rep. Allen West for telling reporters recently that Nazi propagandists would be proud of the Democrats' “propaganda machine.” Reading from the resolution, the Prince George's County Democrat called comments by the Tea Party conservative “offensive” and said they diminish the memory of Jews killed in the Holocaust. The House voted 231-188 to table the resolution.

BERLIN -- In Berlin's biggest demonstration since the fall of the Wall, Germans poured into the Lustgarten yesterday to prove to themselves, and try to prove to the world, that they are against racism, neo-Nazis and attacks on foreigners.The rally took place on the eve of the anniversary of the 1938 Crystal Night pogrom that began the Holocaust.But the rally against extremist right-wing violence was disrupted by a group of young people identified as radical anarchist "autonomes." They threw eggs at the speakers stand while German President Richard von Weizsaecker tried to speak and Chancellor Helmut Kohl stood listening.

I'm getting tired of hearing President Obama and the Democrats blaming former President Bush for the state of affairs these days. I'm not stating he didn't have a hand in it. However, would I be wrong in stating the Democrats had a majority in the Senate and House two years before President Obama and a majority in the first term of President Obama? Why are the Democrats blaming Bush when they have had a majority for the past three years? Nancy Pelosi has been the Speaker of the House since January 4, 2007.

THE REPUBLICANS are learning how to cringe. They have owned the propaganda airwaves for so long now, and suddenly Michael Moore smacks the hell out of them in Fahrenheit 9/11. Enraged moviegoers spent $22 million watching the film over the weekend. They enter theaters as an audience and emerge as an electorate. But the Democrats ought to duck for cover, too. Over the weekend, the Charles Theatre's very walls seemed to bulge. The place was sold out, one performance after another, two theaters at a time.

The opening of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington tomorrow will provide the world -- and particularly Europe -- with an institution long needed. This solemn exhibition not only acknowledges the six million Jewish victims, and other victims, of Nazi Germany's war to exterminate them in the 1930s and '40s. It brings to vivid life an important chapter in the history of Europe when Adolf Hitler's Germany controlled it.To young people well-tuned to contemporary evil but not strong on history, this may seem a lesson in what may happen when a hate-mongering madman gets hold of a continent.

Farewell, Sydney Bristow! The most alluring TV spy since Emma Peel takes her final bow tonight after a five-year run. Alias (ABC, 9 p.m.) allowed Jennifer Garner to wear many wigs and smack down many bad guys, but lately creator J.J. Abrams has been busier with a show that has overtaken Alias for sheer buzz, Lost, and busied himself directing the big-screen Mission: Impossible III. In the fall, Abrams will have his name on three shows on ABC: Lost, the...

"Elisabeth Schwarzkopf," by Alan Jefferson. Northeastern University Press, 304 pages, $29.95.Although she retired from the stage in the late 1960s, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf will always be the beautiful and gracious Countess Almaviva of Mozart and Marschallin of Richard Strauss.The distinction of Alan Jefferson's useful new biography is that it shows us the relentless ambition that drove Schwarzkopf to become one of the most celebrated sopranos of her time. His portrait is not always pretty and it's easy to understand why the singer did not cooperate with the author, who gives the most complete account so far of Schwarzkopf's Nazi associations.

President Bush recently declared that we are at war with "Islamic fascism." Muslim-American groups were quick to express furor at the expression. Middle Eastern autocracies complained that it was provocative and insensitive. Critics of the term chosen by the president, however, should remember what al-Qaida, the Taliban, Hezbollah, Hamas and other extremist Muslim groups have said and done. Like the fascists of the 1930s, the leaders of these groups are authoritarians who brook no dissent in their efforts to impose a comprehensive system of submission upon the unwilling.

GASTONIA, N.C. -- A Nazi speech broadcast Saturday at the Forestview High School stadium in Gastonia resulted in an apology and a change in procedure for the public-address system, but no other sanctions so far against the boys' soccer team or any individuals. A segment of a Nazi propaganda speech was played an hour before Forestview's playoff game against Charlotte Catholic on Saturday night. School officials said Tuesday that they had determined the speech was by Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels, not Adolf Hitler, as was first thought.
