LETTER

TO THE

U

I

ERSITY

CO

U

ITY

Recently, many students here at the University have
received an affront to their intelligence and moral
sensibilities in the form of a letter. The envelope of
this letter displayed the return address of the Legion
for the Survival of Freedom but the letter inside identi-
fied the sender as the Institute for Historical Review, a
Westcoast-based organization devoted to rewriting
the history of the Second World War.
* We are outraged that they deny the existence of anti-
Semitism in Nazi Germany.
" We are outraged that they claim that Anne Frank's
Diary is a forgery.
" We are outraged that they claim the Nazi furnaces are
part of an ancient Jewish fantasy.
" We are outraged that they claim that a Zionist-
controlled (read: Jewish-controlled) media and aca-
demic establishment have created the "myth" of the
Holocaust in order to lead Americans to war.
* We are outraged!

We the undersigned, recognize that the University is a
forum for conflicting ideas and interpretations, but
the existence of the Holocaust is an indisputable his-
torical fact. To state otherwise is a malicious lie slan-
dering not only the millions of Jews and other "in-
ferior" groups murdered by the Nazis, but also the
camp survivors and those of us who recognize these
murders and feel it is crucial that they not be forgot-
ten.
These "revisionist" theories have no historical foun-
dation and should not be legitimized in the academic
community.
As we again witness the Nazis marching we must not forget.
" We must not forget the legacy of Nazi Germany.
" We must not forget the occurrence of the Holocaust.
" We must not forget that a Western "civilized" society
is capable of perpetrating cold-blooded genocide.
" We must not forget the inherent anti-Semitism and
racism of Nazi ideology.
" We must not forget!

Therefore we condemn these attempts by the Institute for Historical Review to
again put forth scapegoat theories for the ills of society and to obscure the
past atrocities of the Nazis.
