Robert Faurisson. Because of my press release of 19 April 1996 (See p. 4-5 of “An Assessment of the Garaudy/Abbe Pierre Affair,” January—October 1996) I was immediately indicted. For many reasons, my trial was twice postponed. It will start on 25 September in Paris. The presiding judge said to my lawyer, Eric Delcroix, that it would not last more than 3 hours (for me and for the Jewish lawver[s] plus for the prosecutor and for my lawyer). As usual, I will be found guilty and sentenced, probably 4 weeks later.

On 8, 9, and 15 January 1998, Pierre Guillaume (publisher) and Roger Garaudy (author) will have 3 long afternoons for their own trial. R. Garaudy is now behaving in an even more cowardly way than I expected. In the Italian newspaper Avvenire (19 November 1996), he went so far as to say that he could not have denied the existence of extermination camps since, arrested on 14 September 1940. he had spent 33 months in such a camp! Abbe Pierre has lost all dignity: he keeps on apologizing and saying he was absolutely wrong: “I had not read the book!”

In France (58 million inhabitants), only 3 people have 1) said 2) and repeated 3) publicly that there were no gas chambers and no genocide: Robert Faurisson (68), Vincent Reynouard (28) and Roger-Guy Dommergue (75?): the last one, being a Jew, has never been sued.

Paul V: (Australia): It takes a lot of guts to do what you are doing. I have been to all the concentration camps in Europe and spent many days in Auschwitz. Nowhere did I find any evidence to support the Exterminationist story ... just the opposite. Given the choice between working in a prisoner detail at Auschwitz with up to 1700 calories food per day with no bombers and regular work—OR ... being a German soldier on the Eastern Front with mines, bombs, bullets, Partisans, and all the locals would be no contest for me I’d have taken my chances in Auschwitz. Thanks for doing what you are doing. You’re a Hero.


Lou Rollins: I’ve been reading It Can't Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis. As you may know, it’s a novel depicting a Nazi-like dictatorship established in America in 1937 (first published in 1935). I thought you’d be interested to know that among the many atrocities perpetrated by the dictator’s henchmen was a gassing of Jews! Here’s the relevant paragraph:

“In Rhode Island, the door of a small orthodox synagogue in a basement was locked from the outside after thin glass containers of carbon monoxide had been thrown in. The windows had been nailed shut, and anyway, the in. The windows had been nailed shut, and anyway, the nineteen men in the congregation did not smell the gas until too late. They were all found slumped to the floor, beards sticking up. They were all over sixty.” (Signet paperback, 1970, pp. 232.)

I like the "beards sticking up” detail. A good second-level writer working at top form.

Will Shake-Spear: [The Holocaust is] but a walking shadow, a poor player That struts and frets [its] hour upon the stage And then is heard no more. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury Signifying nothing.

Congratulations, Sir: A great career awaits you!

Tutta Arnold: I am a 70-year old woman, fled from East Germany in December 1945. My heart-felt thanks to you and others like you. The mental agony suffered all these years has been almost unbearable. God bless you!

Sverker Odesjo (Sweden) More of your like is needed!

Anonymous. When I get “Business Reply Mail” envelopes bearing the notation “No postage necessary if mailed in the United States,” I simply enclose a copy of your leaflet: “The Holocaust Controversy: The Case for Open Debate,” in the envelope and drop in the mail.

I do the same thing. I've been meaning to make a note of it in these pages for months. One person sending my leaflet out 10 times a month, for example, is not particularly spectacular. But 100 or 500 individuals returning 10 or 20 or more leaflets in post-paid envelopes every month adds up quite nicely.

Evelyn E.K.S. Judge. I think you give Deborah Lipstadt too much valuable publicity. One who lies doesn’t deserve even a bad word. She deserves to be ignored—the only suitable nonviolent response. Compared to you. Deborah is like the spiritual dead. Remember what Jesus said about them: “Let the dead bury the dead. I have other work for you to do!” I don’t wish to lure you away from the Holocaust battle, but I don’t like seeing your excellent talent squandered on falsehoods. Ultimately, falsehoods prove themselves.
