Witness Statement: Professor Michael Shermer, 2761 N Marengo
Ave, Altadena, CA 91001, USA

Adjunct professor at Occidental College, Michael Shermer is
best known for publishing America's best-known `Skeptic'
magazine. He is one of the few individuals who opens himself
to Holocaust revisionism and he has participated in a debate
on this topic with IHR's Mark Weber.

Unfortunately his scepticism rests on belief - he believes
the homicidal gassings occurred, but he cannot meet
Professor Faurisson's challenge to "show me or draw me a gas
chamber"

To date I have not received from him the requested witness
statement.
