Mr. Moran is most likely referring to Franjo Tudjman, Pres. of 
Croatia, whose book _Bespuca:  Povjesne Zbiljnosti_ (_Wastelands: 
Historical Truth_) questions the number of Jewish victims of the 
Holocaust.  However, it has been public knowledge for several 
years that Tudjman claimed the passage in the book was 
mistranslated, and even apologized for it.  See "Croatian Chief 
Sorry for Holocaust Views," _New York Times_, 15 Feb. 1994, sec. 
A, p. 12.  If I'm not mistaken, there was even a letter from the 
Croatian embassy published in an issue of the _Journal of 
Historical Review_ saying that Tudjman was _not_ a revisionist.  
But the revisionists, desperate to appear legitimate, continue to 
mistakenly cite Tudjman as "proof."
