Documents on David Irving's Relations with the German Government




October 11, 2003 (Saturday)

IN the morning mail, there is unexpected news from the German foreign ministry: "Nach Auskunft des Bundesverwaltungsamtes besteht für Sie kein Einreiseverbot in die Bundesrepublik mehr. LetterDie Einreisesperre wurde gelöscht." Translation: "According to information from the German Office of Administration there is no longer a ban on you entering the Federal Republic of Germany. The entry ban has been annulled."


I write to the German ambassador to thank him, and I write also to G:

"Sie werden staunen, aber ein Schreiben des Auswärtiges Amtes heute morgen gibt bekannt, die 10jährige, gegen mich verhängte (am 9. November 1993 in Mövenpick im München ausgehändigte) Einreisesperre wurde gelöscht. Also, durchgestanden.

"Nun Sturm brich' los... " - Ein Redeverbot besteht demnach auch nicht mehr. [...]

Then this email comes from New Zealand: "Dear Mr. Irving, I saw mention in a magazine article that you are planning a visit to New Zealand early next year. If this is true, will you be speaking, and if so, where and when? As I would be very interested in attending. I am a member of a [...] group here, who sympathise with your views on history. Would you be interested in privately addressing our small audience? We have private rooms, and can afford a fee, etc. Thankyou for your tremendous contribution towards the Truth. I'll depart with the Druidic motto, "The Truth Against the World". Best Regards, S., Auckland, New Zealand."

What is going on? I at once agree.
