    Austrian University Recalls Diploma for Holocaust Gassing Denier

    Agence France-PresseJanuary 18, 2010

    VIENNA - A leading Austrian university announced Monday it had withdrawn a honorary diploma awarded to an engineer who had questioned the gassing of Jews in Nazi death camps.

    The Vienna University of Technology said in a statement it had cancelled the diploma it had given in December to Walter Luftl, who graduated as an engineer 50 years ago.

    It said Luftl had "massively harmed" his profession and the university with his theory published in the early 1990s that it was not technically possible to exterminate Jews with gas, including because of the type of gas that was used.

    Luftl's Golden Diploma was strongly criticized, notably by a group representing people sent to the Nazi's Austrian death camp at Mauthausen.

    It prompted university rector Peter Skalicky to task a commission with ascertaining if the engineer merited the award, which is the university offers to notable graduates 50 years after they finish their studies.

    Skalicky said in the statement it had been negligent to choose to honour Luftl, former president of the Austrian chamber of engineers.

    The Mauthausen Committee that represents deportees welcomed the university's decision as "correct and important", and a sign that the institution was ready to recognize its mistakes.

    Was the 'mistake' made by the institution that it failed to indoctrinate a persone who was intelligent enough to obtain a degree in engineering, but obviously too contrived to have an honest assertion on Nazi gassings practices?
    Although the word "Commando" was wrongly used to describe all Boer soldiers, a commando was a unit formed from a particular district. None of the units was organized in regular companies, battalions or squadrons. The Boer commandos were individualists who were difficult to control, resented formal discipline or orders, and earned a British jibe that"every Boer was his own general".

    Diploma are earned, PhD are lent (verliehen). therefore Diploma can't be taken away, PhD's can.

    I noted that this was an honorary diploma.

    It is funny that they can't withdraw it because his engineering expertise was wrong but the subject were he allplied this knowledge was against political correctness.

    The jews and their shabbesgoyim fighting a losing war. Everybody can see their evilness and every honest person is disgusted by jews and their cronies.

    They are digging their own grave. I hope one day I stand behind them and kick them in to that grave.
