I got this from a law librarian:"I am trying to ascertain the current attitude in academic institutions, (mainly universities), to history students citing from the works of the notorious UK "historian" David Irving. I understand, for example, that a number of universities in Australia specifically penalize students who cite from his works, whilst others frown upon it but do not impose penalties. I should like, eventually, to obtain as clear a picture as possible of the current situation, in as many countries as possible. Most if not all of you will be aware that, in his spectacularly unsuccessful libel action in the UK a few years ago against Professor Deborah Lipstadt and Penguin Books, the trial judge found David Irving to be an anti-semite and deliberate falsifier/distorter of history. (See:http://www.nizkor.org/hweb/people/i/irving-david/judgment-00-00.html). Yet his books are still readily available for purchase in stores and online and most academic libraries have them. All and any help with my enquiry will be very gratefully received.Thanks," I have not see a WWII book or WWII article that cited David Irving as sources (as opposed to his trial which is covered by legal articles). Anyone?I searched and these articles cited Irving The Ruins of the Gas Chambers: A Forensic Investigation of Crematoriums at Auschwitz I andAuschwitz-Birkenau, Daniel Keren, Jamie McCarthy, Harry W. Mazal. Holocaust and Genocide Studies. Oxford: Spring 2004. Vol. 18, Iss. 1; p. 68 (something about drums and gas) Nazi Crimes and the Law, Jonathan A Bush. German Politics and Society. New York: Autumn 2009. Vol. 27, Iss. 3; pg. 77, 17 pgs (those articles cited Irving for obvious reason) THE ENLARGEMENT OF THE CIRCLE OF PERPETRATORS OF THE HOLOCAUST*Johannes Houwink ten Cate.
