Richard Williamson, who recently had his excommunication from the Catholic Church revoked, denies the reality of the Holocaust. Here are a few of his controversial statements.
I think that two to three hundred thousand Jews perished in Nazi concentration camps but none of them by gas chambers. -*Richard Williamson, 2009 interview *
A portion of that interview follows.
In the Catholic Middle Ages the Jews were relatively impotent to harm Christendom, but as Catholics have grown over the centuries since then weaker and weaker in the faith, especially since Vatican II, so the Jews have come closer and closer to fulfilling their substitute-Messianic drive towards world dominion. -Richard Williamson, 2001 letter

There was not one Jew killed in the gas chambers. It was all lies, lies, lies. The Jews created the Holocaust so we would prostrate ourselves on our knees before them and approve of their new State of Israel. -Richard Williamson, 1989 speech
