Hi Ken

did you get the e-mail I sent a few days back about the rubbish Lucy
Dawidowicz writes about Hitlerís War? I answered her thoroughly in the
1991 edition of that book, but you donít seem to have noticed.

Also, that alleged account of my speech in Johnnesburg is factually
quite wrong. I have built up a list of people who were present, and they
agree that it is malicious, defamatory, and untrue. 

I am a linguist; I would not use the n-word in South Africa, if I wanted
to be offensive I would use the k-word. (Ask your friends). But I didnít
so I didnít. Thatís not my style.

David Irving
