Holocaust revisionist David Irving mocked victims of the Holocaust by “feeding and encouraging the most cynical anti-Semitism” in his speeches, it was alleged at a trial for a defamation suit that Irving has filed against a U.S. scholar. Irving, who denies that Auschwitz was a death camp or that there was systematic, mass destruction of Jews, claims that Deborah Lipstadt libeled Irving in her 1994 book, “Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory.”
