Holocaust denier Irving to speak in the UK

By Jessica Elgot, March 24, 2011

Holocaust denier David Irving has announced a speaking date in London following a tour of the US, his first since 2009.

His talk will take place at a secret location on May 21. His website reads: "You will be notified by email of the precise venue, a few days ahead of the date of the function."

He is currently speaking at locations across the US on "The Life and Death of Heinrich Himmler, Hitler's lieutenant. 44 years in 44 minutes".

In Amsterdam, he will speak on "Hitler, Himmler, and the Final Solution. A Real History view, based on the archival documents".

A spokesman for the CST said: "David Irving is a fairly irrelevant figure these days, but decent people should remain vigorously opposed to historical revisionism."
