News Brief

Accused Holocaust denier David Irving is on a U.S. speaking tour.

Irving is slated to speak in more than a dozen U.S. cities in July, according to a page on the Web site The site promises “many more” appearances throughout August.

The site does not disclose the location of the talks, which are described as “private American functions,” and says it reserves the right to refuse admission. Admission costs about $16.

Irving was largely discredited as a historian of the Third Reich after losing a libel suit brought against Emory University Professor Deborah Lipstadt in 2000. He later was jailed for violating Austrian laws regarding Holocaust denial.
