Victory! Holocaust Revisionist Event Canceled in NYC!

New Yorkers Against David Irving claims victory against Holocaust revisionist David Irving. Irving was scheduled to speak on November 14th at the Catholic Kolping Society at 165 East 88th Street. Along with several concerned citizens and citizen’s groups, New Yorkers Against David Irving made calls to the venue, explaining who David Irving is and why he was hiding behind a fictitious name in order to reserve space at their facility. Further, they demanded that the event be canceled.

New Yorkers Against David Irving firmly believes that Holocaust revisionists and deniers and neo-Nazi sympathizers have no place in NYC – or anywhere else for that matter! We will always take action to ensure our city stays clean from the likes of David Irving and other fascist scum.

 

David Irving could still get a backup venue for his talk and we are on the lookout for that. We are planning on confronting Irving’s Manhattan event if that happens, and at this point are continuing with our original plans for Saturday. Stay tuned for possible last minute updates.

The NYC event was just one of many that is going on across the country, part of a national speaking tour. Other tour dates are listed on Irving’s website. We encourage others in these cities to take action and shut down David Irving’s tour. Be on the lookout for Irving in your city. We know that he has been passing himself off as a legitimate historian – booking events at bookstores, colleges and now church halls.

New Yorkers Against David Irving commends Kolping New York for making the right call and promptly canceling the event. Thanks are also in order to everyone who called and helped get this event shut down. With your help, we sent a strong message that fascists are not welcome in NYC.

Give David Irving a call and tell him we’ll miss him in Manhattan. You can reach him directly on his cell phone — 305.923.6779.

NO PASARAN!

New Yorkers Against David Irving!

By New Yorkers Against David Irving

David Irving is a notorious pro-Nazi history writer. He has made repeated anti-Semitic, Holocaust Denial and racist statements over the years, including that “no document whatsoever indicating the Holocaust occurred” has been found, and “the holocaust of the Germans of Dresden was real. The holocaust of the Jews in the Auschwitz gas chambers is a fabrication.” Although he has retreated from some of these statements, Irving has continued to blame Jews for what the Nazis did to them; he attempts to minimize the scope of the Holocaust; and he publicly praises Adolf Hitler.

New Yorkers Against David Irving call for resistance to the speaking engagements of pseudo-historian David Irving’s east coast tour, including his November 14th date in New York City.

David Irving is a notorious pro-Nazi history writer. He has made repeated anti-Semitic, Holocaust Denial and racist statements over the years, including that “no document whatsoever indicating the Holocaust occurred” has been found, and “the holocaust of the Germans of Dresden was real. The holocaust of the Jews in the Auschwitz gas chambers is a fabrication.” Although he has retreated from some of these statements, Irving has continued to blame Jews for what the Nazis did to them; he attempts to minimize the scope of the Holocaust; and he publicly praises Adolf Hitler.

Irving’s fascist views go back to at least 1959. He has been associated with neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic and Holocaust Denial organizations such as the National Alliance, the Liberty Lobby, and the Institute for Historical Review. In 2006 he was jailed for trivializing the Holocaust in Austria, where it is illegal. Since his release, Irving has marketed himself as a former “political prisoner”.

As the name of his publishing project suggests, Irving serves as a “focal point” to bring together Jew-haters and goose-steppers. He is part of a political tendency that actively organizes to tear apart communities, and particularly to persecute Jews. The June murder of a security guard at the US Holocaust Museum by James von Brunn shows where this racist and anti-Semitic tendency often leads. Van Brunn moved in many of the same circles that promote Irving’s work.

We call for people to confront Irving at each stop of his tour. In July, one quarter of his west coast dates were met by protests. We encourage the communities which Irving is passing through to send a clear message that fascist organizing is not welcome in their town! Please join us in doing this in New York City.

Planning meeting:
Wednesday Nov 11, 7pm: Contact us for details if you would like to attend:

Meet up outside ABC No Rio (156 Rivington Street, between Suffolk and Clinton Streets, Lower East Side)
