History Channel on "Hitler Diaries"

I CAME into the middle of History Channels documentary of the fake Hitler's diaries.

You were never mentioned while I watched. They may have given you some recognition at the beginning of the show but I doubt it. It consisted of a bunch of people claiming that they suspected them to be frauds. It looks like you are destined for the memory hole. . .

 David Irving replies:

However, watch the History Channel from September 15: they have a magnificent documentary on the Firestorm. The Bombing of Dresden 1945, and in that I do figure prominently.
