The Denier Denies Again

Remember how British historian Holocaust denier David Irving acknowledged he had been wrong about denying the systematic slaughter of Jews at the hands of the Nazis, in order to save his bacon?

Well, since it didn’t have the desired effect, he has ended the charade.

Jailed British historian David Irving has again said he does not believe Hitler presided over a systematic attempt to exterminate Jews in Europe.

During his trial in Austria, Irving said he had changed his mind over claims the Holocaust did not happen.

But, speaking from his cell, he asked BBC News why, if such a programme existed, “so many survived”.

He is appealing for a reduction in the three-year jail term. Prosecutors are seeking for it to be lengthened.

Speaking from prison, where he is in solitary confinement for 23 hours each day, Irving told BBC News he now believed there had been isolated cases of Jewish people being gassed during World War II.

However, he added that “Hitler’s own involvement has a big question mark behind it”, before repeating his belief that an extermination policy did not exist.

“Given the ruthless efficiency of the Germans, if there was an extermination programme to kill all the Jews, how come so many survived?” he said.

While I do not think he should have been imprisoned, I can honestly say that I won’t lose any sleep if he has a difficult time picking up the soap in the prison showers.
