Claudio Franciosi writes from Potenza, Italy, on Saturday, January 8, 2000


I LIVE in a small village in South Italy, I am an engineer and I am teaching in the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Potenza (a small town near Naples). Nevertheless, my everlasting passion has always been history, and particularly history of the last century.

Fifteen years ago I had the opportunity to buy and read your book "Apocalisse a Dresda" [Apocalypse 1945: the Destruction of Dresden], after an enthusiastic article by Piero Buscaroli. Subsequently I managed to get everything I could on the argument, but you can realize it was rather difficult for me to obtain something of satisfaction. I remember my long visits to Dillons and Lewis, in Gower Street!

And then, three months ago, I discovered your website and all the plenitude of works you distribute! The new edition of Apocalypse 1945 is fantastic, even if I first carefully studied Nuremberg. Now I am reading Goebbels, and I feel compelled to say "thank you"! Thank you for your efforts in putting again the truth at her place!

Best Wishes for your Lipstadt action !

Claudio Franciosi
