Ernst Zündel: Unbowed (35 minute video documentary by Lady Renouf)

A memoir of Ernst Zündel

by Lady Michèle Renouf

This brief introduction to the video is closely based on an article in Metapedia about Lady Renouf ; details of the video follow.

Lady Michèle Renouf (born 1946) was an Australian model, actress and political activist. Now a British national, she has become known in recent years for her defense of people who hold heretical opinions of WWII history such as David Irving, Robert Faurisson, Richard Williamson, Germar Rudolf, Fredrick Töben, and Ernst Zundel. Though not a revisionist author or researcher herself, she has commented on the problems of Zionism.

In 1991, after the failure of her first marriage, she married New Zealander Sir Francis Renouf, a merchant banker and former POW in a German camp. Her husband Francis was seventy-two years old at the time and Michèle forty-four, 28 years younger. The marriage was not to last. It apparently collapsed as a result of a media induced storm in which Sir Francis was held up to ridicule for allegedly marrying an Australian truck driver’s daughter instead of the Russian noblewoman he had originally thought her to be. He is quoted as describing his marriage as a “nasty accident”. However, though the marriage ended in divorce, Sir Francis appears to have attempted a reconciliation with the beautiful Michèle before dying of a heart attack.

It doesn’t matter if Lady Renouf is a genuine aristocrat or not. Maybe she is, maybe she isn’t. What is certain is that she would certainly pass as a highborn patrician lady if she should ever find herself enjoying a têteàtête and tea and cucumber sandwiches with the Queen of England. Her beautifully modulated cut glass English accent is the finest I have ever heard. Only in the most rarefied circles of the high aristocracy do you find people nowadays with such post accents.

Some Jews and their supporters have called Lady Renouf an “anti-Semite”, a charge rejected by the lady herself on the grounds that she does not regard Judaism as genetic but as ideological. “You don’t have to be Jewish to be Jewish“, she once famously claimed — a sentiment one has to agree with when one looks around and takes note of the millions of gentiles who are even more Jewish than the Jews. She has described Judaism as a “repugnant and hate-filled religion” and is quoted as telling the Teheran Conference in 2006, “Anti-Semitism is caused by the anti-gentile nature of Judaism”.

There have many attempts by the usual suspects to kill or intimidate Lady Renouf, including a threat to send her the deadly poison ricin through the mail. Conferences at which she was scheduled to appear have had to be canceled at the last moment for security reasons. The admirable lady remains above it all, aloof and Olympian, gently suggesting that the Jewish Problem could easily be solved by persuading the Jews to relocate to Birobidjan in Siberia.

Sadly, the Jews are not interested in this common sense solution to the Jewish Problem.

They prefer Israel, and after Israel — the World itself!

Ernst Zündel: Unbowed (35:16)

A personal Telling Films tribute by Lady Michèle Renouf to German-Canadian artist, publisher and dedicated campaigner for historical truth Ernst Zündel, born 23rd April 1939, died 5th August 2017 at his ancestral home in southern Germany. Uniquely interviewed as he was released from Mannheim Prison in 2010 and during his journey back to his childhood home in the Black Forest, and updated in this unexpurgated version after Ernst Zündel’s death, this film documents his decades of legal struggle for source-critical justice in Canada and Germany, literally illustrated by Ernst’s own art works created during his years of imprisonment, and includes an interview with his lawyer Dr. Herbert Schaller.

  1. The truth about the father of Michelle Renouf (née Mainwaring) having been a “truckdriver” is :

    “…They interviewed her long estranged and terminally ill father Arthur Mainwaring, who was a Korean War reconnaissance aerial photographer and continued this role for the local Port Macquarie News. Arthur Mainwaring, whose parents owned a hotel by the ocean at The Entrance, had also been a part-time courier driver to aid local businesses when travelling between his coastal home and his city studio 100 miles away (allowing the press to have further fun at Sir Francis’s expense by portraying his new wife as the daughter of a truck driver)…”

    Source : Wikipedia, Michelle Renouf.

    Lady Renouf is pretty, charming, intelligent and genuinely dedicated to truth and justice, especially when it comes to the shenanigans of that small section of humanity which we prefer to call the Anti-Gentiles.

    I think however that her posh English accent is not genuine but that she picked that up during her education in the UK. Never mind, she is doing good work.

    1. I really admire Lady Renouf’s posh accent. Remember she is an accomplished actress, one of her many talents, and she would therefore be the ideal choice for a part in a Henry James or E.M. Forster movie featuring a patrician lady of the Victorian or Edwardian era.

      The genealogical details given in the introduction re Lady Renouf’s father, incidentally, are all sourced from Metapedia — not Wikipedia — and Metapedia as you know is very sympathetic to political dissidents like David Irving, Robert Faurisson, Bishop Richard Williamson, Germar Rudolf, Fredrick Töben, and Ernst Zundel — all of them probably well known and respected by Lady Renouf.

      Anyway, hats off to Lady Renouf for a splendid video! — and once again, all honor and praise to Ernst Zundel who will be long be remembered for the part he played in breaking new ground in Holocaust revisionism.

      To his widow Ingrid, finally, the deepest sympathies in her bereavement.

  2. A good video of Ernst relaxing upon release from prison. Thank you Lady Renouf and Lasha for showing it.

    A couple of points. Accents change and there’s nothing strange about Lady Renouf having an RP (Received Pronunciation) accent. I had a teacher in Australia who’d worked as an announcer for the BBC and had to learn RP. He was Australian but his accent changed from his original “stryne”. The BBC has gone to the dogs these days, allowing all these regional guttersnipe accents in an attempt to be modern and trendy. One of these days they’ll broadcast in Geordie. No other country does this. In Thailand announcers use pure Central Thai, in South Africa broadcasts in Afrikaans are in “suiwer Afrikaans” pure Afrikaans.

    BTW, the origin of the word posh comes from days of the Raj when people went to India by ship. The coolest part of the ship faced north, hence PORT OUT STARBOARD HOME, POSH. Another piece of useless trivia for your edification.

    1. Regarding accents, I don’t think there’s the slightest suggestion in the article that Lady Renouf’s accent is “affected”. All actors, especially great actors, acquire a distinctive accent in time that may not have been the accent they started out with in their early pre-acting days. Think of the accents, which were all acquired by constant usage, of Laurence Olivier, Richard Burton, Alec Guinness, David Niven. They were all “posh” accents and they were totally natural. They grew into them.

      I knew an Indian who emigrated to England as a child of 13. He had a heavy singsong Indian accent when he arrived in the 1950s. After a few years at Eton and Balliol College, Oxford, he was talking like a pukka sahib. Was his accent “affected”? Of course not!

      In the space of eight years, he had metamorphosed into the quintessential English gentleman, complete with bowler hat and brolly, straight out of PG Wodehouse. “What ho, Jeeves! Pass me the bally cucumber sandwiches, will you, old chap!” 🙂

      1. Uncle Remus say dat gal sho’ look lahk a mighty fine gal – and she SOUND sho’ nuff lahk a English lady! He say them who mind don’t matter – and them who matter don’t MIND. 🙂

    2. Thank you Lady Renouf for your beautiful tribute to Ernst Zundel ,and your courage in this epic ,and eternal battle for our planets freedom from International Jewry. As for accents : What is wrong with ” effected ? “. Elocution was at one time deregour for anyone wanting to be appropriate in life . Today ,proper speaking is less heard ,as one must be ” yourself ” while not knowing who you are in the first place ! In the USA : American Theater Standard was the thing to do !

      “BTW, the origin of the word posh comes from days of the Raj when people went to India by ship. The coolest part of the ship faced north, hence PORT OUT STARBOARD HOME, POSH.”
      Did you learn that from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang? 🙂
      Grandpa off to India;
      Grandpa does his POSH song;

      Though whilst looking into the POSH I found this ‘snopes’ page that said that the “PORT OUT STARBOARD HOME” thing was a myth;

      1. Jimbo –

        “PORT OUT STARBOARD HOME” thing was a myth”

        Of course it is a myth. Anyone who has navigated a ship in any water would know that..!! 🙂

        I wonder if they had the same misplaced thoughts when sailing in the southern hemisphere… or when sailing in a north-south or south-north direction..??

        Absurdity strikes some people every 15 seconds… 🙂

        Every ship’s pilot knows… the strict navigation rule is…
        “RED RIGHT RETURNING”…. and is independent of where NORTH is…. or cool spots or hot spots on the ship.

        Red, Right, Returning

        A buoy’s shape and color allows boaters to follow a safe course on the water. Many boaters are familiar with the saying, Red, Right, Returning, meaning the position of the red buoy should be on the right side of the boat (starboard) when returning from sea, or heading upstream or toward the origin or headwaters of a water body. By memorizing these simple words, boaters can navigate more safely and stay in the channel.

        If the red buoys are on the right/starboard side of the boat, then the green buoys should be on the left/port side of the boat when heading upstream. The opposite is true when traveling downstream. Of course, this is fine if the boater can see the buoy color. However, if the color is not recognizable because of the position of the sun, lack of good light, color blindness or some other reason, boaters must rely on the shape of the buoy to determine safe navigation.

      2. Jimbo
        I have never seen Chitty Bang Bang. I read it in “Freedom at Midnight” by Larry Collins and Dominique La Pierre. The Oxford dictionary said the origin is murky, so perhaps you’re correct.
        Pat, when your sailing on the High Seas there are no buoys. So when you are sailing to India, through the Med and Indian Ocean your are sailing east, hence port side generally away from equator. Going west, starboard away from equator. So I don’t really see the relevance of your post concerning buoys.

      3. Felix –

        I was not referencing the “high seas” which is why I mentioned “pilots” which bring ships in and out of ports.

        The ships on the “high seas” – DO – have to leave and come back to the ports. 🙂

        I have made hundreds of fishing trips in and out of seaports from US to Hawaii to Guam… and up and down the Mississippi. I navigated dozens of trips out of Chatham, at the ‘elbow’ of Cape Cod. We sold the 100 pounds of codfish for 20 cents a pound to pay for our trips. I owned the boat with my partner, while in the navy.

        Also – I spent two years in the Coast Guard Reserve to supplement my college income when I got out of the navy. I served in Memphis… and we were responsible for 100 miles of navigation aids up and down the Mississippi River. Dangerous job. Big wakes from barges and tough storms.

        So, I – DO – get it… somewhat.

        I am who I purport to be.. 🙂

        BTW – There are numerous buoys on the “high seas” as well. You can see their locations on NOAA interactive maps.

        There have even been oil rigs on the “high seas” for decades.

      4. Correction…

        Should have been 1000 pounds of codfish at 20 cents a pound. – $200… in the 60s. Gas was cheap then.

      5. @ Jimbo

        @Felix : “BTW, the origin of the word posh comes from days of the Raj when people went to India by ship. The coolest part of the ship faced north, hence PORT OUT STARBOARD HOME, POSH.”

        Did you learn that from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang? 🙂

        No, Felix probably got it from Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, first published in 1870 and now in its nineteenth edition. This remains the ultimate authority on the origin of old phrases and idioms of every kind. No one ever questions the accuracy of Brewer. He is the ultimate authority, his reputation for scholarship and accuracy undimmed.

        You’re welcome to trust unreliable sources like Jewish YouTube and the dubious Snopes if you like, but most bone fide scholars would prefer to rely on the erudite Brewer — the absolute “gold standard”.

        In comparison, Snopes is a mere dunce!

      6. @Felix
        Hi, my CCBB and Snopes links were intended in a friendly and informative way as your comment stimulated the CCBB ‘Grandpa POSH’ tune memory. After a bit more digging it turns out the aforementioned misinformed ‘POSH’ song that I linked to was written by the two jew Sherman brothers;
        …which is probably why the Mufti is mentioned in the lyrics at 1.35mins in a dismissive way;

        “Last month I missed a Mufti but you can’t oblige them all”

        “Of course it is a myth. Anyone who has navigated a ship in any water would know that..!! 🙂”
        Haha yes, thanks for the info and link.

        “No, Felix probably got it from Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase and Fable,”
        No he clearly states;
        “I read it in “Freedom at Midnight” by Larry Collins and Dominique La Pierre.”

        “No one ever questions the accuracy of Brewer.”
        What does your copy of Brewers say about the origin of POSH? It would be interesting to see if it contradicts the seaman Pat’s explanation.

        “You’re welcome to trust unreliable sources like Jewish YouTube”
        Haha are you feeling OK? My source wasn’t Jewtube, but the song from CCBB which was on JT. Did you watch and read my links?

        “but most bone fide scholars… the absolute “gold standard”.”
        Your comment is comedy gold – I ain’t no scholar 😉

        Anyway cheers for the heads up on ‘Brewers’.

  3. Great article and video. Very enjoyable and so nice of the people to come from far away to be there when Ernst was released. I enjoyed listening and watching Ernst, his lawyer Herbert Schaller and the classy Lady Michèle Renouf. The great British speaker Richard Edmonds was there too. He didn’t appear on camera, but he was the one that asked how old Ernst’s house was. Very nice.

  4. Ernst would know…. that – FIRST-YEAR – US Congressmen are told to support Israel – 100% – if they want to be re-elected:

    TEL AVIV – Fifty-three members of the U.S. House of Representatives…
    ….. are spending August break in Israel on a trip sponsored by the American Israel Education Foundation (AIEF).

    The groups are comprised primarily of – FRESHMEN – members, according to a statement by the organization, which is an independent non-profit funded by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

    The delegation is being lead by House Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Democratic Whip Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.). On Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with 18 Democratic members of Congress in Jerusalem and will meet with Republican lawmakers on Wednesday.

  5. Pat,
    You still are unable to grasp the simple fact that when one sails to India from the Britain, in the Northern Hemisphere, MOST of your voyage will be travelling East, hence port away from the equator. On the return voyage starboard would be on the North side of the ship going west. Remember P & O ships traversed the Med, Suez canal, Red Sea and Indian Ocean. In the Southern Hemisphere, which I’ve also sailed the situation is reversed. One other point, no airconditioning on ships in those days so the coolest side of the ship would generally face away from the sun.

    BTW. I have a ticket for Coastal navigation, vessels up to 300 tons and I’m a qualified radar observer on Merchant ships. I’ve even navigated a launch in a typhoon, winds at force 10. So please don’t try to teach your grandmother to suck eggs with inane irrelevancies about navigation buoys when entering port. Also back in the days of Raj in India, there would be no buoys on the high seas or oil rigs for that matter. So Pat from your experience in the Coast Guard, how often did you sail west to east, or east to west, in the northern hemisphere? What tickets do hold?

    1. Felix –

      Your origin of POSH is a myth..!!

      You wrote:
      “In the Southern Hemisphere, which I’ve also sailed the situation is reversed.”

      That was my point EXACTLY..!!!

      You finally GET IT..!!! 🙂

      POSH would NOT be an appropriate – correct – acronym there. It would be SOPH.

      I am who I purport to be… and NOT a troll… no matter your ignorant claims otherwise.. ONLY because I don’t accept your silly arguments about ‘PUT-ON’ here:

      May 23, 2015 at 3:02 pm
      “No Pat,
      You are now putting words in my mouth because you are being deliberately obtuse and your opinions are contrary to the position of this website, which has consistently posited that PUTIN SHOULD BE JUDGED ON HIS FRUITS.
      I believe you are a troll and are not who you purport to be.”

      1. Pat,
        Until the closure of the Suez Canal after the 67 war, P&O from the shipping line, the word Posh is purported to derive didn’t sail in the Southern Hemisphere. It only sailed through the Med, Suez, Indian Ocean and Peninsular Malaya. Hence the name Peninsular and Orient and POSH, no SOPH. That was how people travelled to India in those days. It’s not like now when they fly! Got it? Remember India was the Jewel in the Crown of the British Empire, so the rest of the Empire paled into insignificance.
        You remind me of my wife, whenever we have a rare tiff, she’ll be like a tape recorder and remind me of something I said three years ago.

      2. Felix –

        Welcome to the 21st century…
        … where it is known that your origin of POSH is a silly myth:

        “..the popular notion that the word is an acronym from port out(ward), starboard home, said to be the preferred accommodation on ships traveling between England and India, is without foundation.”

        You ALSO remind me of MY wife… who hates to be told facts…
        …. especially the ones which disprove her flimsy claims..!! 🙂

      3. Pat,
        That’s one source, there are others that say otherwise! Cherry picking the source to suit your argument, are we? You still haven’t answered my question, what are your navigational qualifications?

      4. Felix –

        I’ll not answer your questions. I won’t get wrapped around your axle. Because you lost my trust.

        You ignorantly wrote that I was a troll… You did not have my trust from that point forward. That’s why I posted it here.

        When you call a complete stranger a troll… YOU LOSE..!!
        In this case, since the someone is me… I WIN..!! 🙂

        BTW – I don’t know you. So, I have never called you anything other than Felix. That would be a display of silly ignorance on my part.

    2. Pat,
      There is absolutely no reason for you to shout. I can read quite well, without the need for block capitals. And I think most other posters on the board would agree with me.

      1. Felix –

        YOU write what YOU want… I’LL do the SAME.. without soliciting the help of others to come to my rescue here… as you must need their help..with arguing with your elders!! 🙂

      2. Felix –


        You are the one who went OFF-TOPIC and commented on POSH… and Jimbo replied…. then I did.. TO HIM… but, NOT to YOU..!! 🙂 🙂

        You are so much “BETTER”… you TOTALLY went OFF-TOPIC….. defending a myth. I’ll give you that much… FWIW. 🙂

  6. Jimbo,
    After I posted my reply, I did check Brewers and it did give ONE of the origins of posh as port out, starboard home. Another cited a Romany origin.

  7. My education about Ernst Zündel occurred very recently.

    It was only after reading “The David Cole Affair” here on Darkmoon first (which should have been titled “That David Cole Swindler”!) and then on Veterans Today that I finally understand who this great human being really is (having heard his name mentioned in passing so many times).

    This video “Ernst Zündel: Unbowed” is simply beautiful, a moving testament to a real “mahatma” moving in our midst.  I hope others will also take the time to understand just who Ernst Zündel really is, now that he has left us and returned home . . . unbowed!

    They say you can tell a lot about a person by their name.  The word “earnest” means “resulting from or showing sincere and intense conviction”.

    Isn’t that who Ernst Zündel truly was and still is?

    Reflecting on the magnificent life and horrendous trials of Ernst Zündel, the words, “Thou art is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased,” comes to my mind.

    RIP in Christ.

  8. It’s interesting she says that the Jews should relocate to Siberia. Why am I suspicious that there is some secret plan of relocating the jewish heartland out of Israel? Maybe the handwriting/graffiti is all over the wall, and walls come down. All genuine news about Israel and the ultimate plans are buried. I only know that the remaking of the Middle East has more or less failed. Those extended wars that are still going on now have become all too banally familiar: the leader is called hitler; the American army comes in and leaves everything in piles of debris; contractors make a ton of money trafficking everything from sex slaves to body parts to oil or whatever. .

    In any event, where does that leave Israel, and the Holocaust narrative. I guess there is always hope that Trump will be impeached or maybe assassinated but then what?? Then can we start pretending that all those lies told to us can be told again and again, is that even possible. So… with rising anti-semitism everywhere including the good ol U.S. where are the Jews going to go. The Ukraine???

    I say anti-semitism is rising in the U.S. because the “left” in the U.S. is anti-semitic. This summer I spent time with my left leaning son and his wife and several of their friends…and even though my son is half Jewish and another one in the group was half Jewish…all of them expressed varying degrees of anti-Jewish sentiment… wow. And the alt white riots led by a Jewish person??? with the rioting Black Lives and Antifa orchestrated by George Soros, Hillary, and Obama. I guess there wasn’t a plan B, after all the plan As failed so now its come down to violence all over the place to discredit Trump and take him out. Of course, I am pro-Trump, and I can’t imagine what would happen if he were assassinated. Anyway, I think that the day might come very soon where the revisionists will be able to say that they changed the public mind. Ernst Zundel and all those early revisionists are heroes, but we may end up in a tyrannical world government run by their allies. In the end, the globalists will fail as they always do and we’ll live in a less populous world, maybe more radioactive, but I doubt anyone will be talking about the Jewish Holocaust.

    1. The Jews wanted Crimea as it was part of their Khazaria when they were a bunch of sex deviants from Mongolia! That is why Ukraine had to be “color revolutionized”. But Putin thought otherwise. And the rest is history.

      Patagonia, Argentina is still in their sights as Israel 2.0.

      Hey, for your anti-Semitic amigos, here is something that might put a positive spin on their stand:
