Jan T. Gross warns that a new law defending “the Polish nation” from accusations of complicity in the Nazis’ mass murder of Jews does more than limit free speech. It criminalizes the truth.

Wide shot of audience with policemen STORYLINE: Right-wing British historian David Irving was convicted in Austria on Monday of denying the Holocaust - a crime in a country which once run by the Nazis - and sentenced to three years in prison. Irving, who had pleaded guilty and insisted during his one-day trial that he had had a change of heart and now acknowledged the Nazis' World War II slaughter of six million Jews, had faced up to 10 years behind bars. In testimony Irving, said he had "made a mistake" when he said there were no gas chambers at Auschwitz. Irving's lawyer immediately announced he would appeal the sentence. Elmar Kresbach told reporters he thought the verdict was "too strong" and announced Irving would appeal. Irving, proclaimed "the law is an ass" and to be tried "for an opinion expressed 16 years ago... is ridiculous." Irving, 67, has been in custody since his arrest in November on charges stemming from two speeches he gave in Austria in 1989 in which he was accused of denying the Nazis' extermination of six (m) million Jews. Handcuffed and wearing a navy blue suit, he arrived at court carrying a copy of one of his most controversial books - "Hitler's War," which challenges the extent of the Holocaust. Irving's trial was held amid new - and fierce - debate over freedom of expression in Europe, where the printing and reprinting of unflattering cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad has triggered violent protests worldwide. Kresbach said last month the controversial Third Reich historian was getting up to 300 pieces of fan mail a week from supporters around the world, and that while in detention he was writing his memoirs under the working title "Irving's War." Irving was arrested on November 11 in the southern Austrian province of Styria on a warrant issued in 1989. He was charged under a state law that makes it a crime to publicly diminish, deny or justify the Holocaust.

This 3-minute video explains the concept of Holocaust denial, its evolution and enduring relevance.
As unpleasant and potentially dangerous a belief in a conspiracy theory can be they do, for the most part, come from a natural human desire to find an explanation for what appears to be unexplainable. However, there are certain conspiracy theories that come from a much darker place. Where people bend reality to back up and justify their dislike or even hatred towards a certain group of people – and there is no better example of this than those who distort or flat-out deny the facts of the holocaust.
