'Nazi grandma' sentenced for Holocaust denial

2 September 2016

Berlin - A notorious 87-year-old Holocaust denier dubbed the "Nazi grandma" by German media was sentenced to eight months in prison on Friday on charges of sedition relating to her claim that Auschwitz was never used for the mass extermination of Jews.

Ursula Haverbeck, whose criminal record includes another 10-month jail sentence that she is currently appealing, wrote a letter to the mayor of Detmold in which she claimed it is "clearly recognisable" that Auschwitz was nothing more than a labour camp.

In Germany, anyone who publicly endorses, denies or plays down the mass murder of Jews during the Third Reich faces a maximum penalty of five years in jail and a minimum of a fine.

The letter was written during the Detmold trial of Reinhold Hanning, a 94-year-old former Auschwitz concentration camp guard. Hanning was sentenced to five years in prison after the court found him guilty as an accessory to the murder of more than 170 000 people, mostly Jews.

In her letter, Haverbeck referred to the Holocaust survivors who gave testimony at the trial as "alleged witnesses" brought to Detmold for the sole purpose of proving that Auschwitz was a death camp.

The leading judge in the case said on Friday that Haverbeck refused to see reason and that her most recent comments to the court also made her liable to prosecution.

Haverbeck is a notorious right-wing extremist whose supporters often appear at her trials.

Various German courts have sentenced the recalcitrant Holocaust denier and her criminal record includes two fines and another suspended sentence for sedition.

She was taken to court last year for claiming on television that "the Holocaust is the biggest and longest-lasting lie in history."

Haverbeck announced her intention to appeal Friday's verdict.

Again? Are they keeping on busting her, like she was some dangerous criminal?

The verbosity of the article is also telling. (Holocaust Denier, Nazi, right-wing extremist, etc.) - Imagine we would use wordage like Christ-killers, Kikes, social parasites, etc. Would that be seen in the same benevolent light.

It cannot be made more clear than this. No "truth" requires the imprisonment of 87 year old grannies to protect it! She is a threat only to a lie and to liars, so they act against her as only disgraceful lying cowards, with something to hide would act. To shut away an old woman as a "threat" because she dares to question a mind-bogglingly questionable "history" of her own country, is as dastardly and disgusting as can be.

It is those responsible for this and their enablers that are the true criminals!

Inquisitor you are assuming too much. There is no real rationality in this, although there is of course a rationale. And that's that those questioning the Myth, must be somewhat evil. To punish them, it's OK to throw the pretense of Liberal Democracy out of the window. The sentences for Revisionism are in the line with rapists and robbers. Which clearly shows where the systems priorities lie.

Anyone with only slight juristical knowledge can see that this is a violation of the official constitution of Germany. That means that the judge would have been obliged to throw out the case or have to refuse to handle it. Even if he accepts the legislation in principle and is a true believer in the Holocaust, he could point out that there isn't really any incitement coming from what Mrs Haverbeck says, again reason to drop the case.

Those judges and prosecutors are the same people that will cite the "Radbruchsche Formel" and complain how "Unright" the NS-Justice system was. Usually invoking a screaming Freisler to make their case. That they themselves are doing worse under far less pressure doesn't come to mind.

But I guess we are dealing with pre-emptive obedience there. There is a complaint, they case gets on the roll, their is the legislation and then there is an eager prosecutor that makes a case on how dangerous this Ursula is with her "denying the Holocaust"

Meanwhile she's just citing a book:
https://archive.org/details/StandortUnd ... 940Bis1945
That was released by the IfZ years ago - taken at an exorbitant price for something that just were copies of orders without real copyright on.

And then she's drawing inferences from the book that are just flat logical. Yes, there was a concentration camp named Auschwitz in fact a complex of camps including Birkenau and Monowitz. Yes there were a lot of prisoners there, including Jews. Yes they were deported to that place, which they won't have done just by their free will. And then there were health problems, epidemics. That's all not in dispute. But show me one line from the book that could be interpreted as having an extermination program for Jews going on in Auschwitz or that the camp guards were acting malicious in any unreasonable way towards the prisoners.

So Ursula poses an absence of evidence argument. There is nothing in the orders that suggests a killing program for Jews employing Gas. To the contrary one can learn about quite some effort to make the stay as pleasant as possible for Jews.

In the case of an accusation hypothesis the absence of valid evidence is evidence for the accusation being false.

But here the BRD-Courts grasp for some sophistic, juristic trick, the socalled "Offenkundigkeit" (=Obviousness). That's a trump card, since it's obvious that it was all different then one learns from the documentary evidence, it must have happened. Since it must have happened, Holocaust Deniers don't have a case. As there is legislation that makes "Holocaust Denial" a "Crime", the deniers have to be punished. That then would be jail time or a fine. And apparently it's a priority crime. Given that they didn't do anything about all the illegal entries into Germany and the real crimes those "migrants" commit. In the past that wasn't much of an issue to most. But now the situation gets some contrast, Arabs can sexually molest German women and girls at will, but for "Holocaust Deniers" the full force of the state will be employed. I imagine that may anger more and more people, unless they are taken in too much by their vices and basically have switched off unless the paycheck doesn't come anymore.
