The Nizkor Project: Remembering the Holocaust (Shoah)

The Shallit Report: Lies of Our Times


Canada has a long tradition of tolerance and multiculturalism. That's why many residents of the K-W area were shocked and saddened to learn that a stereo store on King Street in Kitchener was displaying posters advertising a talk by David Irving, a self-described historian who says that the estimates of six million Jews killed by the Nazis during World War II are greatly exaggerated. Inside the store, according to the K-W Record, one can find for sale a book by Fred Leuchter that claims that the gas chambers at Auschwitz were never used for mass killing.

After local protests, the store owner retaliated by putting up posters about the banking system based on the writings of anti-Semite Eustace Mullins. Subsequently, these posters were taken down by the store owner, but one explicitly anti-Semitic flyer still remains.

The Kitchener-Waterloo Record recently carried a letter to the editor by Paul Fromm, director of "Canadian Association for Free Expression, Inc.". This letter defended neo-Nazi publisher Ernst Zundel, saying, "Zundel was dragged through the courts for nine years ... MERELY for his UNPOPULAR views." [emphasis mine]

Who are Michael Rothe, David Irving, Fred Leuchter, Eustace Mullins, and Paul Fromm, and what do they stand for?
