Letters to David Irving on this Website
Unless correspondents ask us not to, this Website will post selected letters that it receives and invite open debate.
Samuel Crowell is the pseudonym of an American researcher who is specialising on the design and construction of wartime gas-tight air-raid shelters, as installed in German public buildings and prison installations. He has collected much documentation, and written several essays on the subject.

Dear Mr. Irving:
YOUR SITE already has some very important materials, among them the notes of
your transcriptions of ULTRA decrypts, which I am bound to reference. Once
again, the absence of any references to gassing simply reinforces the idea
that if there was a gassing campaign it would have required a mind-boggling
conspiracy to carry out -- and it is precisely that which is the weak point in
the conventional view.
Your response to the letter concerning the Himmler diaries was quite shocking.
I can only hope that the diaries were not destroyed. It should be considered
fairly obvious that they contained nothing to support the traditional view,
I had occasion to come across Ann Tusa's review of your Nuremberg book. I
must say the immediate substitution of hysterical emotion in place of reasoned
appraisal is not something that readily comes to mind when I think of English
I will take the liberty of placing you on my short list of individuals to be
notified if new materials come my way. In the meantime, rest assured that your
site is visited frequently.
