Fred A. Leuchter, Jr., has been widely acknowledged as America’s leading specialist on the design and fabrication of homicidal gas chambers and other equipment used in execution of convicted criminals.
After receiving his Bachelor’s degree from Boston University in 1964, he did postgraduate work at the Harvard Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory. Leuchter holds patents for numerous highly sophisticated technical devices, including sextants, surveying instruments and optical encoding equipment.
Leuchter is perhaps best known as the author of four controversial forensic reports on alleged German wartime extermination gas chambers. The Leuchter Report came about when he was commissioned by Canadian Revisionist Ernst Zündel during his 1988 trial in Canada for doubting the holocaust. Fred Leuchter was Zündel’s twenty-first witness. He testified on Wednesday, April 20 and Thursday, April 21, 1988. Leuchter was tendered as an expert in gas chamber execution technology.
Since then he endured persecutions from the Jewish lobby.
Leuchter’s detailed Report on his investigation and findings has been published in numerous editions in all major languages.
