Update 6:50 a.m. July 27, 2015
Yesterday, I mistakenly wrote that Rudolf Hess was present. It was actually a friend of Hess who spoke at the meeting. This quote is from another news article:
Former Spandau prison worker Abdallah Melaouhi, self-described ‘best friend’ of Hitler’s deputy, Rudolf Hess, was also a speaker at yesterday’s event.
Speaking in German, with translation provided by Irving, Melaouhi told the crowd about his time working as a prison nurse. He attended to Hess between 1982 and 1987 when Hess was held prisoner in Spandau, Germany, for war crimes.
Hess, Hitler’s deputy who during the Second World War was held prisoner after his plane crashed in Scotland in 1941, hanged himself in 1987. Melaouhi claimed Hess was murdered and released a book about him, describing him as ‘a man of great vision, intelligence and compassion’.
Update 1:37 p.m. July 26, 2015 Now that I have read the article more carefully, I see that it was the “best friend of Rudolf Hess”, who was there, not Rudolf Hess himself.
Continue reading my original post.
According to a news article, which you can read in full here, Rudolf Hess, who was Hitler’s deputy, is alive and well and he is speaking to Holocaust deniers in London, even women and teenagers.
I wrote about Rudolf Hess in this previous blog post:
This headline is part of the article, cited above:
- Neo Nazis held secret meeting in four-star hotel in South Kensington
- Event attracted 120 Right-wing sympathisers, including women and teens
- ‘Best friend’ of Hitler’s deputy, Rudolf Hess, was also a guest speaker
This quote is from the news article:
Convicted Holocaust denier David Irving addressed fascist sympathisers and neo Nazis at a secret meeting in London yesterday.
Irving, a historian who famously lost a libel case after denying the existence of Nazi gas chambers, was the star speaker at an event that attracted an audience of 120 Right-wing sympathisers, including women and teenagers.
Behind closed doors at a four-star hotel in South Kensington, the discredited author gave a speech condemning the Second World War Allied bombing campaign over Germany and Nazi-occupied Europe as ‘a war crime’.
Irving’s contentious speech was titled: ‘Saturation Bombing in World War II – who is to blame?’
The photo of David Irving, shown above, was included with the news article. Is this a recent photo? If so, I am happy to see that he is doing so well. I assume that Rudolf Hess, who died years ago, was also looking well.
