Sent: Wednesday, October 13, 1999 1:42 PM Subject: RE: Requesting information I have worked at The Star since 1984. No person named Joseph Burg has ever worked for the paper. On March 31, 1988, The Star reported on Joseph Burg's testimony at the trial of Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel. He was testifying in Zundel's defence, and made the comment you attributed to him. burg was 80 at the time. In his testimony, he described himself as an "anti-Zionist." Don Sellar, Ombud 416-869-4950 (In response to a query resulting from an antisemite's claim that the following quote appeared in the Star) "Zionism was willing to sacrifice the whole of European Jewry for a Zionist State. Everything was done to create a state of Israel and that was only possible through a world war. Wall Street and Jewish large bankers aided the war effort on both sides. Zionists are also to blame for provoking the growing hatred for Jews in 1988." Joseph Burg, The Toronto Star, March 31, 1988"
