“A prominent false witness: Elie Wiesel” – conversation with Ernst Zündel (video)

Elie Wiesel, author of the autobiographical account Night, received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986. On the occasion of the award ceremony in Norway Prof. Faurisson, together with two revisionist colleagues standing outside the venue – the Oslo Peace Center –,  distributed a press release flyer outlining the facts he would later address in detail in his article A Prominent False Witness: Elie Wiesel, and also left a copy for Wiesel at the latter’s hotel.    

Here Faurisson discusses Wiesel’s famous book, pointing out, in particular, that while the original French version says nothing either of the Auschwitz “gas chambers” or of gas or gassing in general but tells rather of burning pits dug in the ground into which detainees were thrown to their death, in the German edition the camp’s crematoria and crematory ovens become, systematically, “gas chambers”.
