Subject: Mannheim visit
Dear Frau Zündel
I have not had the pleasure of meeting you. However I am glad to deliver the greetings sent to you from Ernst Zündel whom I had the honour of visiting yesterday, Thursday 28th July, in Mannheim Prison.
He looked very well - due, he says, to an hour's walk daily in the sunlit yard - though he regretted the seeming effect upon his memory of an unhealthful withdrawal of his herbal medicines these past three years as part of his punishing kidnap and incarceration. Still, he was of good cheer, even high spirits - not least in the knowledge that his dishonest accusers rate - and berate -his real history investigations so substantively!
When I arrived he had just seen his new solicitor and was pleased with the female intuition she brought to the understanding of his position. We were not permitted to discuss his case. However I was able to confirm I had put Adrian Davies - David Irving's Appeals barrister - in touch with Mr Rieger. This is in case Adrian can be of help - as he has offered - once the Zündel Case reaches the Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.
During the course of an hour's conversation, Mr Zündel impressed on me that he considered himself, essentially, a hostage for the closure of a U.S.A. based website. He is prepared to sit out the five years of further imprisonment hanging over him rather than bargain away its public right-to-know integrity. I am urging those investigative journalists who occasionally get lucky to cover Ernst's fight and plight. It is a matter of defending open debate and practicing media democracy.
A new policy allows him to send and to receive only two letters per day in a five day week. Ernst asks for his friends understand his recent limits.
And finally, Mr Zündel expressly wished those who would hurt him by casting unfounded doubts upon his wife's fund-raising integrity, if they would kindly appreciate that he can vouch better than anyone for just how straight, wholesome, without guile, deeply trustworthy, and due great respect is loyal Ingrid Rimland.

Subject: Hitler, Holocaust are part of our present, not our past
This letter-to-the-editor is an excellent example of Holocaust paranoia.

Hitler, Holocaust are part of our present, not our past
Re: Auction of Hitler sketches raises concerns, JULY 13.
The article on the auction of architecture sketches by Adolf Hitler has
missed a crucial point. The problem is not that Hitler may appear “as
less than a monster if he was interested in architecture,” but that the
treatment of his drawings as essentially just another art piece signals
a loss of historical perspective.
To pick some extreme examples, how would Canadian women feel if sketches
drawn by Marc Lépine were auctioned off? How would New Yorkers feel if
sketches drawn by the Sept. 11 attackers were auctioned off?
There are two views on this subject: those who believe the horrors of
the Holocaust are part of history, and those who understand that they
are part of the present. Unfortunately, rather than educating ourselves
about the latter, this auction, the appearance of Mein Kampf on the
best-seller list in Turkey, and the sharp rise in anti-Semitism in
Canada, the U.S., and Europe suggest that too many of us are starting to
believe the former.

Bitte noch einmal!
Goethe in seinem Festspiel „Des Epimenides Erwachen“ anläßlich des Sieges im Deutschen Befreiungskrieg gegen Napoleon:
So rissen wir uns ringsherum
Von fremden Banden los.
Nun sind wir Deutsche wiederum,
Nun sind wir wieder groß.
So waren wir und sind es auch
Das edelste Geschlecht,
Von biederm Sinn und reinem Hauch
Und in der Taten Recht.
[Goethe-HA Bd. 5, S. 398]
