Holocaust denier David Irving was ejected from the Warsaw International Book Fair. "We asked him to leave" on Saturday, book fair organizer Grzegorz Guzowski told Reuters. "Our employees helped him pack up his things, and our car drove him to the address he specified." Irving, whose work as a historian has been widely discredited, was convicted of Holocaust denial in Austria two years ago and spent a year in jail there before gaining early release. There is no law in Poland against Holocaust denial. Irving was at the fair to promote his writings, many of which question long-established facts about the Holocaust, such as the existence of the gas chambers that killed Jews at the Auschwitz death camp. Irving, who is British, plans to to visit Auschwitz and other former Nazi concentration camps in Poland, according to Reuters.
