David John Cawdell Irving (born March 24, 1938) is a British Holocaust denier and author of several books about the military history of World War II.
In 1998, he launched an unsuccessful libel suit against Deborah Lipstadt and her publisher in which the judge ruled that characterizations "that [Irving] is an active Holocaust denier; that he is anti-Semitic and racist and that he associates with right-wing extremists who promote neo-Nazism" and "that Irving has for his own ideological reasons persistently and deliberately misrepresented and manipulated historical evidence" were "substantially true".
As a result of previous statements about the Holocaust, Irving has been barred from entering Germany, Austria, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. On 20 February 2006, he was sentenced to three years' imprisonment in Austria for denying the Holocaust, when he re-entered Austria following his earlier ban.
