Abstract. The Boltzmann limit conjecture of Grad is discussed in general and proved for the Lorentz gas case (where the Boltzmann equation is linear). This is a reprint of an unpublished preprint of 1972, with one footnote added, one postscript (to quote the Lanford theorem), and improved with language editing. I reprint it in this form, as it has been quoted by other authors in later papers. The original preprint was commissioned for a book that eventually was not published.
