Holocaust Denial Book to Remain in School Library

Download PDF for this date

A book that claims the Holocaust is a hoax as well as controversial publications will not be banned from the library at Ryerson Polytechnical Institute in Toronto.

After a three-month investigation, a special committee has ruled out adopting a policy that would remove books such as “The Hoax Of The Twentieth Century” from library shelves. The book denies the well-documented fact that six million Jews died at the hands of the Nazis.

The new policy of the Institute, however, approved by its governing council, could result in a book being placed in a “limited access” area if it is the subject of an “adverse judgment” by a Canadian court.
