Shaun Aitcheson of Waitaki High School, New Zealand, is researching Holocaust history and the Jews


Holocaust history and the Jews

I'm a 7th former at High School doing a research assignment here in New Zealand about Holocaust Denial and I would be most grateful if you could answer the following questions.

  • How important do you see Freedom of Speech in regards to the whole Holocaust debate.
  • Do you think the Jewish community are standing up for themselves enough?

An answer would be highly appreciated - your website has been a great help in my research.

Keep up the good work, thank you for your time.

David Irving, July 2003

David Irving comments:

FREEDOM of speech has been lethal for many of the legends of the Holocaust (which does not mean that much of its history is not true); and this is why those who are promoting those stories for their own financial interests are doing all they can to inhibit that freedom -- for example by introducing filters on school and college compuetrs, ostensibly to prevent then from visiting pornographic websites, but in fact with lists of revisionist websites secretly included in the addresses that are "locked out". The Internet grew up in "their" backyard, and like a huge convolvulus plant it is now amok, out of control. The Day of the Triffids!

As for standing up for themselves; in my experience -- and I use that phrase for what it means -- they are using every dirty trick in the book to maintain their case. They will eventually fail. It is an interesting battle however.

PS: I expect to be near Australia early 2004, speaking, and I shall invite you and everybody else in your country who wants to hear me to come and listen. [register interest]
