Carlo Mattogno (born 1951) is an Italian author and a Holocaust denier.

Life and works[edit]

Mattogno was born in Orvieto, Italy. He is the author of numerous books and monographs,[1] several of which have been published in the Journal of Historical Review.

In 1985 Mattogno published the booklet The Gerstein Report – Anatomy of a Fraud[2] and in 1988 the book The Myth of the Extermination of the Jews. Since the 1990s Mattogno has largely focused his publications on the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp.

Mattogno is a former member of the advisory board of the Institute for Historical Review[1] and current editorial advisor for the journal printed by the Committee for Open Debate on the Holocaust,[3] bodies which promote Holocaust denial.[4] Mattogno also contributes to the French-language journal Annales d'histoire révisionniste.[1]

Mattogno came out in defense of bishop Richard Williamson of the Society of Saint Pius X during a much-publicized Holocaust history controversy.[5]
