Gaston-Armand Amaudruz: 1920-2018

The great European nationalist and campaigner for historical truth Gaston-Armand (‘Guy’) Amaudruz died on Friday aged 97, after more than seventy years of tireless activism.

His first political essay was published in 1945, and in 1951 he began editing the Courrier du Continent, originally the publication of a small Swiss nationalist party, which became Amaudruz’s personal journal and played an important role in coordinating the elite of European racial nationalists for decades.

From the 1990s Amaudruz campaigned against the trend towards ‘anti-racist’ and ‘anti-revisionist’ laws in many European countries, and in April 2000 (aged 79) he was himself sentenced to 12 months imprisonment by a criminal court in Lausanne, Switzerland, for ‘holocaust denial’.

In his testimony at this trial, Amaudruz courageously declared:

“If the Six Million figure were correct, and the gas chambers existed, it would not be necessary to suppress dissident opinions with a muzzle law. In such a situation one should be able to present proofs. The existence of Section 261 [Anti-Racism Law] is the best argument against the standard version of the fate of the Jews in the Second World War. Given how the media incessantly serves up this version, doubts are practically obligatory.”

Asked by prosecutors whether he was a racist, Amaudruz replied:

“Yes, and on the basis of the Petit Larousse [a standard dictionary] of 1947, which defines Racism as ‘the theory of those who seek to defend the unity of the race of the nation’.”

Questioned about his opposition to racial mixing, he replied: “Race-mixing destroys that which nature has created over aeons of time. Racism protects the rights of all human societies.” Amaudruz reaffirmed his belief that “the European peoples must remain white.”

A tribute to Gaston-Armand Amaudruz will appear in the November edition of Heritage and Destiny.
