OPEN LETTER TO AN AUSTRALIAN HISTORIAN
[Upon learning this person's opinion that David Irving is a "liar" and his mistaken belief that Irving was never officially banned from entering Australia]
Dear Mr. ---,
Please excuse the delay in getting back to you.
I believe that if you look into the matter David Irving has been banned from Australia since 1993.
The real significance of the 2003 Irving-Lipstadt libel trial was that the defendant, Deborah Lipstadt, introduced a defence witness, Dr. Robert von Pelt, of Canada, who is a professor of architecture (but not an architect), who admitted that no one knows the original locations of the so-called “Zyklon B introduction ports” in the roofs of the so-called “homicidal gas chambers” at Auschwitz; all the apertures in the roofs of these structures (in reality, underground morgues) were pierced after the war.
Obviously, “No Holes, No Holocaust”.
Von Pelt repeated this admission in a book, stating, that although no one knows where the original Zyklon B introduction holes were, “does that mean that they were never there?” (Well, in a word, yes, these are unplastered reinforced concrete structures; no holes could be plugged up without leaving visible traces).
Irving then stood up and said that if they could show him where the original holes were, he would drop the suit, and that the amount he was seeking in damages would be donated to charity by himself.
This admission is, of course, worth many billions of dollars, literally, but was ignored by the press.
As you know, Auschwitz was overrun, or conquered, or “liberated” by the Soviets, in January 1945, who then sealed the entire area off from the world for 10 years, and built most of the exhibits shown to tourists today – but not according to the original plans (the originals of which are still in existence).
As you also know, of course, the Soviet Union was assigned the task, by the so-called International Military Tribunal, of gathering, collating and presenting ALL the evidence of German atrocities in Eastern Europe. They were allowed to do according to Soviet procedures and Soviet rules of evidence.
The famous “homicidal gas chambers”, in 1945, were simply one Soviet propaganda tale among many, and only became the sole method of “mass killing” in mid-1946 or so at the earliest.
For example, the Germans, in 1945, were accused, at Nuremberg and elsewhere, not so much of “gassing” millions of people in “gas chambers”, but, rather, of the following, as “proven” by “eyewitness testimony”:
- Steaming people to death like lobsters in 10 steam chambers at Treblinka;
- Zapping them to death with mass electrical shocks;
- Blasting them into the twilight zone with atomic bombs;
- Beating people to death, then carry out autopsies to see why they died;
- Forcing people to climb trees, then cut the trees down;
- Killing 840,000 Russian POWs at Sachsenhausen, and burning the bodies
- Bashing people's brains in with a pedal-driven brain-bashing machine
listening to the radio, then burn the bodies in 4 portable ovens;
- Torturing and executing people in time to music at the Yanov camp in
- Shooting every member of the orchestra;
- Grinding the bones of millions of people in portable bone-grinding
- Grinding the bones of 200 bodies [¾ ton] at one time, as described in
photographs and documents which have disappeared;
- Studying bone grinding in special 10-day crash-course seminars;
- Whupping people with special spanking machines;
(Note that photographs of German leaders, concentration camps, etc.,
are in full supply, but that photos of bone grinders, portable ovens,
etc., have all disappeared)
- Making lampshades of human skin;
- Cutting people's heads off and then shrink them -- making pocketbooks
driving gloves for SS officers out of human skin;
- Painting pornographic pictures on canvasses made of human skin;
- Binding books in human skin;
- Making saddles, riding breeches, gloves, house slippers, and ladies
handbags out of human skin;
- Driving Jews to cannibalism in all those freight cars;
- More "scientific experiments"
- Torturing people in specially mass-produced "torture boxes" made by
- Killing people for sleeping in their underwear;
- Killing people for wearing dirty underwear;
- Wearing underwear stolen from gassed persons;
- (didn't they have any underwear in Germany?)
- Killing people for having armpit hair;
- Stuffing chairs with human hair;
- Making socks out of human hair;
- (actually, the correct translation should be hair-yarn "booties" for
- Collecting seven tons of hair for human sock making;
- Collecting 293 hair bales (net weight seven thousand kilograms) at
Auschwitz for mattress stuffing and making hair socks;
- Gassing them to death, then destroying the bodies with quicklime at
Using human ashes for repairing the roads;
- Mixing human ashes with manure and selling it;
- Burning human bodies using human fat for fuel;
- Burning human bodies using no fuel at all after removing them from the
gas chambers without wearing gas masks;
- Burning 80,000 bodies in 2 old ovens;
- Burning human bodies in holes dug in a swampy plain which is frozen in
January where it rains and snows constantly and there is mud everywhere;
- (what did they do when it was raining?)
- Killing people with poisoned soft drinks;
- Shooting 135,000 people in Smolensk and burying them Katyn-style;
- Shooting 200,000 people in the Lisenitz forest;
- Using the same methods of concealment they used at Katyn, etc. etc.?

(this is not a joke), please see:
Since all the “evidence” is all of Soviet origin, produced according to Soviet rules of evidence, this means that no one knows where the so-called
“original documents” are. This is very easy to verify.
Just write to any archive – in the USA, the Netherlands, Germany, Moscow, etc., wherever -- and ask them if they have them. Take any book on the
“Holocaust” and look at the footnotes and references; you will find that they consist between 75% and 90% of Soviet propaganda.
For more examples of “Soviet documentary evidence”, see:
None of the Nuremberg Tribunals ever presented any scientific of forensic evidence in the modern, Western, sense of the word.
The only exception, which no one takes seriously, was a Soviet report accusing the Germans of killing the Polish prisoners at Katyn; the bodies were
buried in winter great coats and boots which were brand-new, showing very little wear. All the documents in the pockets of the corpses were dated April 1940 or
The following are very good examples of Soviet “evidence”:
David Irving’s real crime was writing the prologue or introduction to the so-called “Leuchter Report”.
As you know, Leuchter was a professional technician (he was not a licensed engineer in the State of Massachussetts, but he held 100 patents) who built, installed and repaired execution equipment (gas chambers, gallows,electric chairs) and who invented the lethal-injection method of capital punishment, for every American penitentiary using capital punishment. They had no one else.
Leuchter visited Auschwitz and all the German concentration camps alleged to have possessed “gas chambers” and stated that these structures are not gas chambers and could not be used as gas chambers; that Zyklon B was not an execution product and could not be used in the manner described, and that crematory ovens cannot be used in the manner described.
As you know, hydrogen cyanide is a colourless liquid which evaporates as a poison gas; the gas, of course, precipitates in the form of a liquid, forming salts with all metals except lead. Thus, in contact with masonry, it should leave large quantities of a cyanide-iron salt called ferric-ferrocyanide, a nearly indestructible compound formerly used as a pigment for lead-based paints, formerly known as “Prussian Blue”.
Leuchter took scrapings from all the so-called Auschwitz “homicidal gas chambers” for comparison with scrapings from the “disinfestations chambers”, used for the destruction of vermin. The chemical test reports, from an independent industrial laboratory, revealed that the so-called “homicidal gas chambers” contain virtually no ferric-ferrocyanide at all -- no more than occurs in nature -- while the comparison “disinfestation chambers” contain between 1,000 and 1,500 times as much.
The same conclusions were also reached by Germar Rudolf, a certified chemist, and Walter Lüftl, the President of the Austrian Chamber of Engineers, who had
appeared as an expert witness in over 100 trials.
Well, you know what happened next: all these men lost their livelihood, and several of them were sent to prison on one pretext or another.
Since American penitentiaries had no one but Leuchter to maintain their execution equipment, they began botching their executions, and several prisoners were fried instead of being electrocuted, etc.
Since gas chambers are extremely dangerous and they no longer have anybody to maintain them, most states switched over to lethal injection (invented, as I say, by none other than Leuchter himself).
A New Zealand M.A. student named Joel S.A. Hayward nearly had his livelihood destroyed simply for writing an objective thesis on this topic, although he is part Jewish. A prize-winning post-graduate student in law was recently expelled from Harvard University for doing the same thing. Why is this intimidation necessary?
You have done an admirable job of proving the impossibilities of outdoor cremations using wood for fuel yourself, in one of your articles on “Frontier History”; as for the crematory ovens, all one need know is that it takes between 1 and a half to 2 hours to for the cremation of a corpse with the most modern equipment, that they do not smell or emit smoke and do not require chimneys. The ovens at Auschwitz are coke-fired and quite inefficient, probably designed for 3 or 4 cremations a day; large quantities of coke would be required. Coke is quite an inefficient fuel; if it gets wet or even damp, it won’t burn.
Of course, you can easily imagine the weather conditions in Poland; at Auschwitz, the water table lies one foot below the surface.
I’ll tell you a little story. First, I’ll tell you something about myself. I’m not bothered by insults at all. I got in a discussion with one person -- a Jehovah’s Witness who came to my house uninvited -- and he said, “You’re very racist”, I said “Yes”. He said, “Anti-Semitic”, I said “Yes”. He started telling me all about the “poor, persecuted Jews” and their Holy Hoaxoco$t, and I said,
“How long does it take to cremate a human body using the most modern equipment?”
He looked me right in the eye and said, immediately and very firmly, “Two hours”.
There was complete silence for about 15 seconds while we continued to stare at each other, then he changed the subject. K.O, first round.
You see? A lot of people know these things. You can live right next door to a crematorium and never even know it is there. A lot of people have had family members cremated; crematory oven technology dates back to the 1880s and this info is not a secret.
How do these fairy tales survive except through flat-out intimidation and lies?
Examples of flat-out lying on the part of the Hoaxoco$t con-artists:
Examples of their mistranslations and quotations out of context:
On gas chambers and cyanide gas generally, the following is, I think, very easy to understand:
On Nuremberg documentary and legal procedures, see:

If you think you are a better writer than Irving, I agree with you;
[I like the style of Irving's footnotes, but not of the texts, simply because of the style; for example, if Churchill is referred to 5 times in a paragraph, he will be called "Churchill" the first time, "The First Lord of the Admiralty" the second time, and the "proprietor of Chequers" the third time. If you have 5 people being referred to 5 times each this way, in one huge paragraph half a page long, the results become incomprehensible unless you know as much as Irving to start with.
(I am told that this is a trick of rhetoric called "antonomasia").
I have no objection to the content of Irving's texts].
I had a couple of exchanges with him myself.
I do not entirely agree with his handling of certain documents:
But the opinions for which he is attacked are opinions in which he was entirely correct.
What I wish to impress upon your mind is that the lies which you so admirably expose in Australian history are paralleled by other lies, all over the world, peddled by virtually the same people, whether you call them Marxists, Jews, crypto-Marxists, “post-modernists”, or whatever.
I intend to buy and read all your books.
