Berlin hotels boycott Holocaust denier David Irving

David Irving, the Holocaust-denying British historian, is planning a controversial return to Germany but may have a hard time finding a place to stay as hotels in the German capital have banded together to boycott him.

Irving reversed a travel ban imposed on him by a German court that found him guilty of Holocaust denial after arguing that it contravened the EU’s freedom of movement policies.

Irving will address guests at a private meeting in Berlin this September, but hotels in the city have pledged to refuse Mr Irving accommodation or a venue.
