Ingrid Rimland Zundel Has Passed Away

Ingrid Rimland Zundel and her husband, Ernst Zundel

Introductory Note: Sometimes life comes at you fast. I was very saddened to get this message. I had just a few days ago received a letter from Ingrid Zundel, and it was in last month’s National Alliance BULLETIN (our print publication) that Will Williams spoke of his recent visit with her and her impressive research library facilities in Tennessee. She and her husband Ernst will always be remembered and honored in the new culture and new world we’re going to build. — Kevin Alfred Strom

by Michael Hoffman

INGRID RIMLAND ZUNDEL, an accomplished and successful professional author and the loyal wife of the late World War II revisionist publisher and activist Ernst Zundel, has died. We have no other details at the present time, though it appears to have been from natural causes.

Ingrid was born into the historic community of German Mennonites resident in Russia since the time of Catherine the Great. After Hitler invaded the Soviet Union, Stalin began deporting these German-Russians to Siberia. The German Army arrived in time to halt the extrusion and escort Ingrid’s family and thousands like them safely out of the USSR. After the war, many German Mennonite refugees were sent to South America, where Ingrid’s family took up residence under harsh conditions. She eventually left her faith community to pursue a higher education and the career of a writer. She met Ernst in the 1990s. She survived her husband by less than three months. She leaves behind an extensive headquarters complex in Tennessee, complete with lodging facilities, a library and archives, the disposition of which is unknown. She was her husband’s sole heir, according to his son Pierre.

Another courageous World War II revisionist, the Leftist scholar Serge Thion, died October 15 in France. There were no suspicious circumstances.

2017 also saw the passing of Barbara Kulaszka in June, after a long illness. She was a tireless Canadian civil liberties attorney who for decades assisted Doug Christie in defending dissidents who otherwise would have been deprived of adequate legal representation.

Requiescat in pace.

National Alliance Chairman Will Williams visits Ingrid Rimland, September 2017

Appendix: from the National Alliance BULLETIN, September 2017

Visit with Ingrid Rimland

IN mid-September Chairman Williams and member Dan S. paid a courtesy visit to Dr. Ingrid Rimland, shared a large pizza with her, and toured her well-designed facility in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

Dr. Rimland is widowed since her world-renowned revisionist and activist husband Ernst Zundel died in Germany on August 5th. Had she gone to her husband’s funeral in Germany, she would have presumably been arrested as a thought criminal. She has been following the activities of the National Alliance for a long time and in her nice follow-up note to our visit wrote, “I enjoyed meeting you. Let’s keep in touch in case we need each other.” We agreed to exchange periodicals and we certainly will keep in touch since Dr. Rimland’s extensive facility is only a couple of hours drive from Laurel Bloomery. She is a wellspring of useful information and great stories. We aspire to build Dr. Pierce’s memorial library to the high standard Dr. Rimland has achieved with hers.

    Another great loss. I can only hope that the Zundel library and all the related materials will be secured by the appropriate individuals, as it is invaluable.

    Sad and shocking. So soon after Ernst’s demise. I hope someone can keep the library together and SPLC or someone doesn’t grab it or destroy it. I often wondered what the succession of her center would be with Ernst out of the picture. No one ever seems to make plans to keep these things together. Id just gotten the October Power newsletter a few days ago, noticed the misspellings and her wobbly signature and wondered if she were okay. She never answered me when I asked who would carry on after her demise. Hard question, but I’m not sending a bunch of rare judaica etc. somewhere it will get dispersed.

    Ernst and Ingrid Zundel will be viewed by future generations as great heroes for giving their lives to expose the jewish scourge on our planet.

    May they rest in peace in each others’ loving arms.

    A sad loss for mankind. Ingrid and Ernst were incredible examples of what can be accomplished by courageous, committed individuals. We, like many others, will keep you in our hearts. God Bless!

    I had to reread this headline a few times before it sunk in. I have been working with Ingrid for years, spreading the message. She was a great woman and her husband was a instrumental in my understanding of revisionist history. I was just planning to send her an e-mail this week. Very sad loss. I feared this would happen. It’s often the fate of widows several months after the death of a spouse.

    Rest in peace, Ingrid.

    Frau Rimland tells the story of her people – German Mennonites who, during the 1780’s, were Invited by Katherine the Great (House of Romanov) to settle within the Ukraine to establish a German community of Master-Farmers amidst the Russian / Ukrainian peoples . . The terrors experienced by the community during and after the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 and the implementation of Jewish Communism . . Her father’s denunciation by Communists and subsequent exile . . What was left of her family near the beginning of WWII narrowly escaping exile to Siberia due to the arrival of the German Army . . The Soldiers of the Wehrmacht re-opening the CLOSED-DOWN Church buildings ( . Synagogues, on the other hand, remained untouched by the alien “authorities”) . . Her grandmother, mother, and her having to flee west with the retreating Wehrmacht once the tide had turned against them during the Big Freeze. . And eventually meeting Herr Zundel in Canada . . .

    It is definitely worth the time needed to hear this first-hand account of those times, what was done and by whom – to whom . .

    Read more in the video description and listen to this most interesting personal account.

    Glad I bought her trilogy novel Lebensraum and The Furies earlier….. who knows what will become of the bookstore. And the library and art museum for that matter! You know what happened to Zundelhaus in Canada….. and now it is out there in the remote hinterlands….. ripe for some arsonist. I seem to recall that they had willed each other, as survivor, the estate. Now with them both gone who knows what the dispersal will be. This happens all the time…….

      To answer WALT HAMPTON’s question in the opening comment here a couple of months ago, Ingrid was cremated without autopsy, requesting that her ashes be scattered around the top of the hill at the Pigeon Forge guest house.

      FRANK IMPUDICUS: I seem to recall that they had willed each other, as survivor, the estate. Now with them both gone who knows what the dispersal will be…

      It is known now that Ingrid, while in deep grief, prepared a new, final Will 10 days after Ernst died, naming her son from a previous marriage, Rudy, as executor and sole heir. Rudy Rimland inherits considerable real estate holdings, valued in millions of dollars, and hopefully “will fulfill his mother’s wishes,” as he has told those who inquired of him, as to the Zundel library and archive, seeing that it accrues to responsible hands. Unfortunately, Ingrid’s provisions for disposition of her and Ernst’s life work were not recorded in her final Last Will & Testament. Who knows if Rudy will do the right thing as a man of his race and fulfill his mother’s wishes? Ingrid told me that her son “is not sympathetic to our cause.”

    I am saddened at this news. I know both Ingrid and Ernst admired the documentary Adolf Hitler – The Greatest Story Never Told! Their commentary played a vital role in the documentary. At least they are no longer apart but hopefully together forever.

    Goodbye, Ingrid. Gotterdammerung is approaching. Both you and Ernst have been called to join all the other Great Germanic Heroes in Valhalla in preparation for the final Battle.

    There is no doubt about that. The final battle will be
    fought here on the North American continent…and my
    prediction is that it will be the bloodiest conflict in all of
    human history….in fact…it has already begun…

    Ernst and Ingrid heroes for the German people and truth I only wish things could have been better for them both. I do hope his library and work are protected and can continue to be utilised in our fight for truth and justice for Germany. The lies will not always hide the truth, Jewish communism is hell on earth. The greatest story never told, the great holocaust trial, Ernst zundel interviews Israeli reporter…brilliant videos. Ernst,Ingrid RIP TOGETHER FOREVER

    It was great victory for truth in the Toronto trial of Ernst Zundel in 1985 — when all the ‘witnesses’ against him lied on the stand. Drug Christie, David Irving, and Fred Leuchter proved their case.

    Hope someone will carry their books. Amazon sure won’t. Texe Marrs carried a few so he’s probably ‘next’ IYKWIM. You know, like Edgar Steele and so many other writers showing up framed and deceased….

    Good to know someone has them. Talked to EZ a couple times on the phone when I guess he was in TN…. once after 9/11 to get his ‘take’ on that, when all the war on terror stuff started. Was funny I’d seen a UFO in the N. Idaho sky when the planes weren’t flying and he started talking about the Nazi UFOs and bells. and about von Braun writing the Mars Projekt in the fifties which US pols always promise but never deliver because all the money is needed for endless war in the ME for Israel.

    Being in my 85th year, I cherish memories. One of the special ones is a rainy day luncheon with Ingrid in Pigeon Forge and afternoon together at Ernst’s art gallery and the Soaring Eagles library. For years we were fellow columnists on Veterans Today and email correspondents. Every column I have written over 10 years has been removed by VT, along with my photo and bio. Ingrid’s may or may not remain, to be found in the Wayback Machine, until “handled” by the dreadful few. One day, perhaps, one who is younger will undertake telling the tale of two Wagnerian heroic persons, one tragic in life and a partner staunch and devoted until death.

    I am deeply saddened to hear of these two great honorable persons passing. I have spent many many hours listening to Ernst’s videos and speeches and I was always inspired and enlightened. What must be done is now in our hands. We must pick up the torch and destroy the diabolical evil of Judea ….We are literally under attack from the very people who cry about their fake holocaust all while they commit many……So many genocides have they done and now they seek to eliminate us…..I don’t know about the rest of you but as for me this is war….WAR ON JUDEA!!!!! The Satanic filth of the world…..the cancer ……The cure is us awakened.

    I hope he does not pull a “Gliebe” and become
    sympathetic to the highest bidder.

      Most likely the books will end up in the garbage. The property will be sold. All of that hard work will go down the drain. At least she committed herself to a high cause and made a great impact. Her spirit will live on through us.

      Thats true. He doesn’t care too much for it. Before I left Tennessee after she passed. I asked him what he was going to do with everything she worked so hard for. He said something about donations. One of the cabins I was staying at when I worked for her is going up for sale this spring. I tell you…it was very hard to hear its going to be all gone. I still think about her she was an awesome lady.

    I figured as much! About the library getting tossed. Well, better see if I can get something through amazon. Instead of the monthly newsletter I got something to the effect of leave the family alone to their privacy. Well there go the rare and o.p. books I donated. “Never again.” Too many of those old books themselves were decommissioned and ‘pulled’ out of libraries bearing their stamps, when it became un P.C. to have such books in libraries thirty or so years ago. As remote as she is, I sort of figured the jews would have torched it by now a la Toronto.

      Frank, many of the titles Ingrid carried through Soaring Eagle Gallery are available through my website Patriotic Dissent Books. I’ve been buying books from her in bulk for years now. I’m glad I absorbed what I could.

    There actually was one arson attempt that, thankfully, fizzled.
    A crude firebomb was tossed through a gallery window by person(s) unknown, probably not of Irish or Italian origin.
