Killed for distributing the French language version of “Did Six Million Really Die?”
Background and contribution:
A French writer, historian and educator, Duprat had introduced the booklet “Did Six Million Really Die?” in France by publishing the first French translation. He also published “The Mystery of the Gas Chamber.” He was only 38 years old when his car was blown up by a bomb and he was assassinated on March 18, 1978. His wife, who was with him in the car, lost the use of her legs in this terrorist act. Two Jewish groups took credit for the assassination – the “Jewish Remembrance Commando” and another group who identified itself as “. . . Jewish Revolutionary Group.” The assassins were never found.
