The Nizkor Project: Remembering the Holocaust (Shoah)

Ernst Zündel on Censorship

Ernst Zündel appears to be pro-censorship when a film or video, in his opinion, maligns the German people. However, he is decidedly anti-censorship when the subject of the potential censorship is his own material.

ANTI-CENSORSHIP: The Zündelsite home page (as published to UseNet by a Zündel supporter)

In 1996, the Zündelsite argues that "...a truly democratic society does not need to fear, suppress and persecute an alternate view of history..."

PRO-CENSORSHIP: The Holocaust miniseries.

In 1980, Zündel urges Canadian authorities to enforce anti-hate laws and to ban the television miniseries "Holocaust":

By stopping the Zionist 'six million' swindle, we can also stop the spread of Zionist tyranny and terror throughout the world. The following authorities in Canada, however, have not seen fit to enforce the law by stopping the "Holocaust" hate message: Prime Minister Clark...

ANTI-CENSORSHIP: The Zündelsite's First Electronic Rebuttal

In 1996, the Zündelsite refers to "hate laws" (the same laws?) as "designed to snap around good people's hearts and minds like hand cuffs," and asserts: "Not since the Salem witch hunts has there been such brutal persecution."

PRO-CENSORSHIP: "Ban Schindler's List!"

In 1994, Zündel explained that the movie Schindler's List is anti-German propaganda, and that it should be banned.

For the record, Nizkor supports the EFF's Blue Ribbon Anti-Censorship Campaign, we do not believe that Zündel or any other Holocaust-denier should be censored, and we oppose the application of "anti-hate-speech" laws to the Internet. blue ribbon

Ingrid Rimland and Ernst Zündel have been offered the opportunity to present a rebuttal to these pages. No response has been received, to date (October 10, 1999).
