MetadataShow full item record
In 1978, a major French daily Le Monde granted a professor at the University of Lyon II the opportunity to publish an essay that denied the existence of the gas chambers and in turn, suggested that Holocaust historiography, memoirs, and testimony had fabricated an enormous commercial myth. This paper analyzes the response of the various factions of the political and intellectual French Left to the so called "Faurisson Affair."
