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.
David Kosher of Paradise has some comments on Mr Irving and the Holocaust. That may not be his name, but he chose it.
You and the Holocaust
I AM a Norwegian man. Before World War II, 1,500 Jews lived in Norway. Half of them succeeded in escaping to Sweden -- the other half were captured by the Nazis and sent to concentration camps. Thirteen of these 750 Jews came back.
Please, ask Mr. Irving: If everything about the existence of the infamous gas chambers is a lie and they never existed, as Mr. Irving says, why didn't these 735 Norwegian Jews, among them my grand parents, my uncles, aunts and cousins, return to Norway? They could not all have died a natural dead as many of them were young people around 20 -- 30 years and also many children.
I very much hope to receive a reasonable explanation to this question.
David Irving responds:
