Holocaust-denial leaflets at Australian universities E-mail

Leaflets denying the Holocaust were placed on car windshields on two university campuses in Melbourne, Australia, in April.

The leaflets began appearing at Monash University and the University of Melbourne at the same time as the opening in the city of Denial, a movie that portrays the court battle between Jewish historian Deborah Lipstadt and Holocaust denier David Irving.
Containing slogans such as “the greatest swindle of all time” and “the Holohoax”, the leaflets claimed that the “official version” of the Holocaust, which is also portrayed by Hollywood filmmakers, is “demonstrably false”.

“These leaflets are the result of a nationally organised campaign to spread poisonous anti-Semitic conspiracies at our nation’s top universities,” said the national chairwoman of the Australasian Union of Jewish Students, Isabella Polger. “They represent an atrocious assault on the dignity of Jewish students.”
