8 Report in The Daily Telegraph, July 29, 1999:"PREACHER HAS RIGHT TO BE HEARD, HOWEVER IRRITATING." Citing Socrates and two famous Quakers, William Penn and William Mead, Lord Justice Sedley said: "The irritating, the contentious, the eccentric, the heretical, the unwelcome, and provocative have a right to be heard."

12 Day 19, February 14, at page 83. I had supplied Deutsch with the General von Fritsch papers. He used them before me. I was then accused of having plagiarized his research without attribution. Cross examination of Prof. Evans. Evans: "I agree. I will climb down on Professor Deutsch." In another instance, I gave crucial entries in the Moscow Goebbels diaries to Hans-Georg Reuth, who published them in his five volume digest edition three years before I used them in my biography. His publishers Piper Verlag then vilified me on German television.

18 See Day 19, February 14, page 77. Philippe Burrin, Hitler and the Jews, the Genesis of the Holocaust, at page 57: "While Hitler could only have endorsed the concept of exacting reprisals, namely on the Jews, he seems to have been surprised by the extent of the destruction. [...] In each case Hitler covered for Goebbels who did not derive the hoped for benefits from the affair." Copy in my Bundle F, "Prof. Evans", No. 48.

19 Burrin, op. cit.: "... It is a good thing we are preceded by the ominous reputation of exterminating the Jews..."

20 Ereignismeldung No. 60, dated September 11, 1941, at page 9: "Günstig wirkt sich das Gerücht aus, daß von den Deutschen alle Juden totgeschossen würden." And see Ereignismeldung No. 81 of September 12, 1941 where Einsatzgruppe C reported, "The gratuitous evacuation of hunderds of thousands of Jews may be considered to be an indirect success of the work of the Security Police. As we hear mostly from the other side of the Urals, this is a considerable contribution to the solution of the Jewish question in Europe." Translation in Arad, Krakowski and Spektor in The Einsatzgruppen Reports, page 131.

22 See the answers by Peter Millar, examined on Day 15, February 3, page 40:

"Irving: Was I going to be there [Moscow] only for a limited space of time?
A. As far as we knew.
Q. Would it therefore have been practicable for me to have
browsed at length in the diaries for passages which were
not on the list?
A. I do not think so."
