Poland, Latvia and Lithuania governments should ban Holocaust denier David Irving’s 'guided tour' of Nazi camps

David Irving is an English Holocaust denier who has written on the military and political history of World War II, with a focus on Nazi Germany. Irving marginalised himself in 1988 when he began to espouse Holocaust denial, specifically denying that Jews were murdered by gassing at the Auschwitz concentration camp.

Irving's reputation as a historian was discredited when, in the course of an unsuccessful libel case he filed against the American historian Deborah Lipstadt and Penguin Books, he was shown to have deliberately misrepresented historical evidence to promote Holocaust denial.

The English court found that Irving was an active Holocaust denier, antisemite and racist, who "for his own ideological reasons persistently and deliberately misrepresented and manipulated historical evidence". In addition, the court found that Irving's books had distorted the history of Hitler's role in the Holocaust to depict Hitler in a favourable light.

Now, Mr. Irving is planning to provide guided tours of some of the most notorious Nazi sites in Poland, Latvia and Lithuania, including extermination camps at Sobibor, Treblinka, Majdanek and Belzec, in what has been described as a “grotesque insult to the dead.”

In Poland, Holocaust denial and the denial of communist crimes is punishable by law [Act of 18 December 1998 on the Institute of National Remembrance – Commission for the Prosecution of Crimes against the Polish Nation (Dz.U. 1998 nr 155 poz. 1016)]

In Lithuania, approval and denial of Nazi crimes is prohibited [170(2) Publicly condoning international crimes, crimes of the USSR or Nazi Germany against the Republic of Lithuania and her inhabitants, denial or belittling of such crimes].

Due to engaging in Holocaust denial, David Irving has been barred from entering Australia multiple times.

Irving was also sentenced by Austria to three years in prison after he admitted denying the Holocaust.

We call the governments of Poland, Latvia and Lithuania to bar Irving from conducting this vile, racist and illegal “tour”.
