Dead Historian: Pierre Vidal-Naquet

I am indebted to Bob from Brockley for bringing to my notice, the demise of Pierre Vidal-Naquet, a French historian and noted critic of Noam Chomsky.

In particular, these works are well regarded: The Assassins of Memory: Essays on the Denial of the Holocaust By Pierre Vidal-Naquet

I just managed to pick a copy of Vidal-Naquet's 'The Jews' and hope to read it over the next year, other books permitting.

Well regarded by whom? Holohoax swindlers?

"It is not necessary to ask oneself how, technically, such a mass murder was possible. It was technically possible because it happened."

Being a yiddle on the fiddle, like you, Vidal-Naquet put his name to this nonsensical, ahistorical declaration in 1979.
