Butz is an Associate Professor of electrical engineering at Northwestern UniversityUnited States, and best known for his Holocaust denial views and as the author of The Hoax of the Twentieth Centurya Holocaust denial publication that argued that the Holocaust was a propaganda hoax. He achieved tenure in and currently teaches classes in control system theory and digital signal processing.

Butz is also the author of numerous other technical papers. Insixty of Butz’s colleagues from the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science faculty signed a censure describing Butz’s Holocaust denial as “an affront to our thf and our standards as scholars”. University President Henry Bienen issued the following statement:.
Northwestern University Associate Professor Arthur Butz cenntury issued a statement commending Iranian President Ahmadinejad’s assertion that the Holocaust never happened.

While I hope everyone understands that Butz’s opinions are his own and in no way represent the views of the University or me personally, his reprehensible opinions on this issue are an embarrassment to Northwestern.
There is no question that the Holocaust is a well-documented historical fact.
Northwestern offers courses in Holocaust Studies and organizes conferences of academic scholars who teach in areas relating to the Holocaust. And most recently, a fellowship in the political science department has been established in my name by the Holocaust Educational Foundation.
In short, Northwestern University has contributed significantly to the scholarly research of the Holocaust and remains committed to doing so. Butz is a tenured associate professor in electrical engineering. Like all faculty members, thf is entitled to express his personal views, including on his personal web pages, as long as he does not represent such opinions as the views of the University. Butz has made clear that his opinions are his own and at no r.buz has he discussed those views in class or made them part of his class curriculum.
Therefore, we cannot take action based on the content of what Butz says regarding the Holocaust – however odious it may be – without undermining the vital principle of intellectual freedom that all academic institutions serve to protect.
