           Two Essays on David Irving's Holocaust Denial <1>
                      by Eberhard Jaeckel <2>
                  Translated by H. David Kirk <3>


21.  Originally  published, abbreviated, in  the  Frankfurter
Allgemeine Zeitung of 25 August 1977, p. 17.

22.  To  aid  the  reader the translator  has  inserted  sub-
headings not originally part of Professor Jackal's essays.

23.  Hugh Trevor-Roper was Regius Professor of Modern History

24 Hitler und seine Feldherren.

25 This German composite term appears in the English text.

26.  Since  the names of Hitler and Himmler are so  close  in
spelling  and sound, it is easy to confuse them  in  reading.
Himmler,  the "Reichsfuehrer SS," was head of Hitler's  elite
guard  troops, the SS, who not only ran the death  camps  but
managed  most,  if  not all, of the murder machinery  of  the

27.  This translator contacted Prof. Jackel about the meaning
of the sentence in parenthesis. Here is Prof. Jackel's reply:
"On  November  25,  1941 German Jews, deported  from  Berlin,
Munich, and Frankfurt, were shot at Kovno. On November 27 the
seventh transport of Jews left Berlin. The phone conversation
of  November  30 concerned that transport. But the  call  had
come  too late: these people were shot on arrival at Riga  on
November  30." Professor Jackal's explanation  of  why  these
people  were  shot in spite of the "order" not to "liquidate"
them  appears  to be in error. See 'Translator's  Postscript'
for "Irving's House of Cards."

28.  See  'Translator's Postscript' for "Irving's  Misuse  of

29. Hitler's "Minister of Propaganda and Enlightenment."

30.  By  then  Austria,  Danzig,  and  the  largest  part  of
Czechoslovakia had become incorporated into the Reich.

31. Lebensraum.

32.  Support  for this suggestion comes from  Albert  Speer's
"The  Slave  State:  Heinrich  Himmler's  Masterplan  for  SS
Supremacy,"  London,  Weidenfeld and  Nicolson,  1981,  p.  6
(translated  by  Joachim  Neugroschel).  Speer   says:   "The
dichotomy of this man (Himmler), who was in charge  of  total
mass murder and yet constantly opposed extermination policies
(to  staff his armament factories), leads me to suspect  that
he  was not the driving force in the murder continued  Of the
Jews.  I would point instead to Hitler, Joseph Goebbels,  and
that  hate-filled mover Martin Bormann." I  am  indebted  for
this  information  to Professor Kurt Jonassohn  of  Concordia
University, Montreal.

Additional  support  comes  from  "The  Diaries   of   Joseph
Goebbels,"  Hitler's propaganda minister. "On  September  14,
(1942)  he  tells  Minister of Justice and President  of  the
People's   Court   Otto  Thierack,  that   Jews   should   be
exterminated by working them to death, and four  days  later,
Thierack  accordingly arranges with Himmler for  Jews  to  be
transferred  from  ordinary prisons to the "jurisdiction"  of
the  SS." Quoted by C.C. Aronsfeld in "The Bestial Policy  of
Cold-Blooded Extermination," _Midstream_, April 1993, p. 11

33. Geheimreden.

34.  See  page  14,  footnote 15 for an explanation  of  that

35.  Emergency militia squads, organized for shooting  Jewish
men, women, and children behind the lines.

36.  Sicherheitsdienst, the Security Service of the SS formed
in  1932  under  Heydrich, later also chief of  the  Security
Police  (Sipo), as the sole intelligence organization of  the
NSDAP. The HQs of the Sipo and SD formed the core of the 1939
RSHA  (Reichssicherheitsdienst); a special  Security  Service
responsible  for  guarding Hitler and  other  leading  Nazis,
drawn from the criminal police commanded by Major-General  SS
Rattenhueber  (from H. Krausnick and M. Broszat,  Anatomy  of
the SS State, 1970, pp. 285, 383).

37.  The  title  given  to  the Nazi  administration  of  the
conquered Polish territory

38. High-ranking regional Nazi party official

39. Of emptying the ghettos.

40. German Parliament.
