Three Years’ Jail for British Holocaust Denier Irving

British historian David Irving was jailed for three years by an Austrian court Monday, despite finally admitting the reality of the Nazi Holocaust and the existence of gas chambers after a career spent denying both. He was arrested in Austria last November when he arrived to give a lecture, on a warrant issued in 1989 under Austrian laws that make Holocaust denial a crime.

Folks, when Deborah E. Lipstadt was compelled to defend herself against charges of libel brought by Holocaust denier David Irving, without relying on survivors as witnesses, she amassed a massive cache of documentary, testimonial, and material evidence about Auschwitz.

Judge Charles Gray of the UK High Court of Justice said the evidence conclusively demonstrated that Irving’s claims that Auschwitz-Birkenau was not a death camp fell far short of the standard to be expected of a conscientious historian.

Gray concluded that “no objective, fair-minded historian would have serious cause to doubt” the existence of gas chambers at Auschwitz. The four different judges who heard Irving’s appeals agreed.”

David Irving, rot in jail.
