Greece: Historian cleared over holocaust denial

Historians in the News

Court officials say judges have overturned a far-right Greek historian's conviction for inciting racial hatred with a book that denies the Holocaust took place.

A five-member panel of appeals court judges has voted 4-1 to overturn a lower court's decision that sentenced historian Costas Plevris to 14 months in prison for his book "The Jews: The whole truth."

Court officials say the Athens appeals court ruled Friday that Plevris was entitled to express his views in the book.
