This is a verbatim quote from the cross-examination of Fred Leuchter, "revisionist scholar", "engineer and scientist":

[Pages 9196-9198 of the transcript in Zündel's trial. Cross-examination conducted by Mr. Pearson]:

Q: Now, Mr. Leuchter, Mr. Christie, when he was reviewing your qualifications, said that, if my note is correct, you graduated from university in a field that entitles you to function as an engineer and you responded in the affirmative to that question?

A: Yes. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree.

Q: You graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree?

A: Right.

Q: When?

A: You mean what year?

Q: What year?

A: 1964.

Q: 1964. And that's the only University degree you have?

A: That's correct.

Q: You don't have a Bachelor of Science degree?

A: No.

Q: You don't have a Master of Science degree; you don't have a Ph.D in science?

A: Correct.

Q: Do you belong to any suprevising disciplinary professional body?

A: I don't understand the question, counsellor.

Q: Well, do you belong to a governing body of engineers?
