The Holocaust Story

If the Holocaust was an event in history, it should be open to the routine critical examination to which all other historical events are open.

Professor Faurisson’s knowledge and determination

For four and a half hours on this very hot July afternoon, in a sweltering XVIIth Chamber of the Paris Correctional Court, slightly more than a hundred revisionists, who had come from France, Britain, Sweden, Switzerland, Italy, Iran and still other countries to support the professor, attended a legal bout that, from the start, was to swing in favour of the defence. 77 years of age but endowed with a fierce energy, Robert Faurisson is a retired . . . .
