a falsifier, and possibly a felon

Right-wing British historian David Irving now pleads guilty to denying the existence of gas chambers at Auschwitz 17 years ago. Irving's general dissmisal of the evidence for the Holocuast is frequently employed by radical revisionist historians and neo-Nazis. The 68-year old asserts that his about-face is due to a reinterpretation of primary sources, however Irving still faces up to 10 years of jail-time in Austria, where denying the Holocuast is a crime.
