Name of creator
Ernst Zundel, Holocaust denier, was born in Germany on 24 April 1939. At the age of fourteen he was apprenticed to a trade school. He had shown promise as an artist and was sent into a training program of a graphic arts institute. He moved to Canada in 1958 and was hired as an apprentice in commercial art at Simpsons in Toronto. He became a very prolific graphic artist. In 1959 Zundel met Adrien Arcand, leader of Canada's National Socialist Christian Party. Through him Zundel formed North American and European contacts. He ran for leadership of the Liberal Party in 1966. Beginning in the 1970s Zundel organized revisionist conferences, and began his mass mailing of revisionist books and pamphlets. In 1984 he was charged under Canada's Criminal Code for publishing hate literature which promoted social and racial charges. The trial was held in 1985 and he was found guilty.
