In France, a writer, father of eight, is in prison for his historical research

reynouard05

With a wife and eight children, the Frenchman Vincent Reynouard, aged 41, is a chemical engineer by training, a graduate of the ISMRA (“Institute of sciences of atomic matter and radiation”) in Caen (Normandy). He readily presents himself as a traditionalist Catholic and does not hide his ultra-conservative political opinions. But, most important, he publicly disputes, in his DVDs and writings, the conventional version of Second World War history. He is one of those researchers who declare themselves to be “revisionists” and who are called “deniers” by others because they do not believe in the existence of homicidal gas chambers in the wartime German concentration camps.

For his temerity Vincent Reynouard has now been imprisoned in Belgium on a European arrest warrant pending extradition to France, where he faces a prison sentence under laws which criminalise historical research and opinions.
