Ernst Zundel is, in my view, the greatest dissident of our time.
I’d read about Ernst and I’d written about him, but it was only two years ago that I met him. He was soft-spoken, kind and gentle but every so often you could see the flash of steel. He’d just been released from prison and was engaged in rebuilding his ancestral home. It’s a peasant’s house in the Black Forest, in the heart of Germany – and it had housed his woodcutter father, his large family and the young Ernst.
Never have I seen an edifice so rooted in the land. Like Ernst himself, it seemed to grow out of the soil.
In this documentary, you will meet an entirely different Ernst Zündel — not the “hate-spewing” firebrand a poisonous mainstream media has painted him to be, but the sensitive, creative artist who spent one-tenth of his life incarcerated for his outspoken political convictions on behalf of his demonized people — and still retained his extraordinary spirit of defiance.”
