Revisionist
Repeats Claims

Rome (JTA) — British
Holocaust revisionist David
Irving, who recently gained
notoriety when the Sunday
Times of London hired him
to transcribe the diaries of
Nazi propagandist Josef
Goebbels, reasserted in an
interview published here his
view that the Holocaust did
not take place.
Mr. Irving was deported
from Italy last month when
he arrived to address a neo-
Nazi meeting in Rome. He
said in the interview
published in the magazine
section of the newspaper La
Repubblica, that had he
been allowed to speak, he
would have said what he has
been saying for 20 years.
"What is called the Holo-
caust or the Final Solution,
that is, the physical liquida-
tion of the European Jews,
was never ordered or scien-
tifically planned by Hitler,"
he said in the interview.
Mr. Irving, an historian,
said that what happened
was probably the result of
two forces: initiatives
adopted by local authorities
in the invaded territories,
and a misinterpretation of
the regime's anti-Jewish
regulations by the leader-
ship of the SS.
"There does not exist one
single document that estab-
lishes a direct link between
Hitler and the so-called
Final Solution," he added.

Italian journalist Miriam
Mafai, herself a Jew, quoted
Mr. Irving as saying that if
he had known she was Jew-
ish he would not have agreed
to be interviewed by her.
He denied the existence of
extermination camps and
gas chambers. If they had
existed, he claimed, he
would have found documen-
tation, because "the Ger-
mans were extremely
precise" and it was
"improbable" that docu-
ments had been destroyed.
As for documents which
did show the commander of
Auschwitz ordering large
quantities of Zyldon B, Mr.
Irving said "We cannot ex-
clude that this was used in
the crematoria where bodies
were incinerated. Not for gas
chambers."
German Jews, he said,
were not Germans, adding
that "Goering and Goebbels
did everything they could
before the war so that the
Jews themselves would
leave Germany."
Ms. Mafai carried out the
interview with Mr. Irving at
his home in London.
