David Irving Interview: An Independent Mind (Part 1 of 2)
Published: 2019-02-20

The English Centre of International PEN reviewed the film approvingly:

THE final interview, and arguably the most controversial, was with the historian David Irving. While he still vehemently denies accusations of racism, anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial, Irving conceded that he had voiced "doubts and scepticism" about Auschwitz during a speech he had given in Austria in 1989. He was arrested for attempting to reactivate the Nazi party and in trial admitted that he had denied that Nazi Germany had killed millions of Jews. In February 2006, he was sentenced to three years in prison...

While in no way condoning Irving's position on the Holocaust, English PEN deplored the court's decision. "It should not be a crime in a free society to publish opinion, however poorly dressed up as fact," PEN said in a statement. "It is more important than ever that democracies deal with contentious issues through debate and ridicule rather than through suppression by law.
