French Publisher Plans To Reissue Céline's Anti-Semitic Tracts; Outrage Ensues

"French publishing house Gallimard has insisted it will go ahead with the publication of the 1,000-page collection of 1930s pamphlets by Céline, who called for the extermination of Jews. The publication date is not set but Gallimard has insisted its intention is to frame the texts 'and put them back in their context as writings of a great violence, marked by the antisemitic hatred of the author'. ... A furious row has raged in literary circles between those for and against publication."
