I DO NOT know how you have the gall to publish and promote George Watson's rubbish in your newspaper. There are few subjects that have been so intensively studied by historians as Hitler and the Holocaust; and many brilliant writers have addressed the issues. So why give space to this fascistic diatribe, which shows an astonishing consistency of distortion, bogus analogy, and half-baked truths that defy any kind of historical professionalism? This revisionist thesis is well-worn, and has been peddled for years by neo-Nazi hacks in Germany and elsewhere.
