London, November 15, 1993Dear Mr Larsson,
MANY thanks for your timely letter. I have today faxed an immediate reader's letter to the Svenska Dagbladet as follows:
"Since you printed under the headline "Falsifier of History Expelled" (Nov.11) the German government's wholly unwarranted press attack on me ó after their action in excluding me last Tuesday from Germany, a country where I have researched and lectured without incident for thirty years ó may I briefly assure your readers that it is totally untrue that I "claim the annihilation of Jews during the Second World War never took place" or that I arrived in Germany "to incite violence."
The arrogance and mendacity of this German government press release are breathtaking. This struggle is getting increasing ugly! Please carry on keeping me informed.
