Ernst Zundel

A second significant focal point of revisionist propaganda centered around Samizdat Publishers in Toronto. Well equipped with printing equipment, archives, and literature, Samizdat published and distributed revisionist literature glorifying Hitler and the Third Reich, and denying the Holocaust. Its staff worked every day beneath a portrait of the worst evildoer of all time, Adolph Hitler. They dispatched distorted versions of “the truth” about the Third Reich era around the world. As shown in the documentary film Profession: Neo-Nazi, their emissaries carried propaganda brochures about the Third Reich to many countries, including Germany, and also Poland.

The founder and guiding spirit was Ernst Zundel, a German who emigrated to Canada in 1958. He was convicted twice in Canadian courts, in 1985 and 1988, of publishing hate literature. After his extradition to Germany in 2005, a court in Mannheim sentenced him to 5 years’ imprisonment in 2007. His colleagues and supporters run the Zundelsite website, which propagates his ideas and expresses solidarity with him.
