Famous Holocaust denier David Irving

The title of this blog post is a quote from a news article which you can read in full at  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3996138/Still-spouting-poison-Hollywood-makes-movie-views-Holocaust-denier-David-Irving-continues-pervert-history-make-money-s-it.html#ixzz4Rt9TKUjG

At weekends, the Premier Inn in Gateshead throngs with football fans and young clubbers up for a wild night out in nearby Newcastle. Visitors to this cheap and cheery hotel on a trading estate seldom arrive by Rolls-Royce. Last Saturday evening, however, a vintage Silver Shadow glided onto the forecourt.

Sitting ramrod-straight at the wheel was an elderly and distinguished looking man, with silver hair and ruddy jowls. He might have been a retired brigadier. But it was none other than the infamous Holocaust-denying historian, David Irving.

In the passenger seat was the latest of Irving’s Girl Fridays — an attractive Polish woman, 50 years his junior, named Martyna Jurska. Her immediate task was to unload a stash of his books (including his laudatory 985-page biography of Hitler) from the boot of the Rolls and carry them into the hotel, in the hope he might hawk copies to an audience he was due to address, for upwards of £30 a time.

I have said this before, but I have to tell you again: David Irving is the nicest person that you will ever meet. I have attended his lectures twice and I have spoken with him twice. He suffers fools gladly, but he does get a bit cranky if someone asks a question that is too stupid.

Begin quote

An iron gate stolen from the Dachau concentration camp in Germany has been found … in western Norway.

The gate with the Nazi slogan “Arbeit macht frei” (“Work sets you free”) was stolen in November 2014. It was found [recently] in a parking lot in a town near Bergen, Norway’s second largest city.

However, police have no leads on who stole it, or why.

“Our forensic teams have found no useable evidence like DNA,” police spokeswoman Kari Bjoerkhaug Trones said.

More than 40,000 prisoners died at Dachau, near Munich, during the Second World War.
