The Nizkor Project: Remembering the Holocaust (Shoah)

The Truth, the Whole Truth, and, er, Nothing Like the Truth?

During his interview with Tasdok Yecheskeli on February 2, 1997, he cites an early David Irving contention that "...fewer Jews died during the the entire war than the British killed during one single bombing raid on one German city on one night."

Irving, however, during an Australian radio interview, in July of 1995, fully 19 months before this Zundel interview, Irving said:

I think, like any scientist, I'd have to give you a range of figures and I'd have to say a minimum of one million, which is a monstrous crime, and a maximum of about four million, depending on what you mean by killed. If putting people into a concentration camps where they die of barbarity and typhus and epidemics is killing then I would say the four million figure because, undoubtedly, huge numbers did die in the camps in the conditions that were very evident at the end of the war.

Why, one must ask, did Mr. Zundel conceal this statement from the reporter, when it was clearly a repudiation of Irving's earlier testimony, to which Zundel referred? (This is the true mark of the "revisionist scholar.")
