German is better ... for the censorship.


But I don't speak German and I don't want to hunt down a translator, that's why I asked if the letters HAVE to be in German.

It's the political content that won't make it past the censors, not the English language, because.....

Thank you for supporting Monika and all the other persecuted Revisionists you always support.

Letters of Monika:

Letter of February 11, 2018 from Monika (received on March 9, 2018 – almost a month later)


Dear …,


Thank you for your second letter of January 14th. The letters arrive, I think, faster here than mine go out. Why I think this is because my …… (relative) has been here twice to visit, and the first time she had not received any of my letters – and I immediately started writing on the third day I was here, and it was almost a month later. And the second time she told me they had letters number 2 and 3 and not number 1. And in the first letter, I had almost only put in logistics – important things to be done around “house and yard”, matters that needed to be taken care of. That’s what stressed me out the most, at first, because I could not do anything from in here.

But in the meantime, I’m no longer stressed over it because I just have to believe that my friends and family will take care of things. Of course I’m a bit worried about ….. that it’s not all too much for her. I am sorry that you are not feeling well health wise. Of course, the emotional burden of the world situation does not help. As you say, these world problems can take their toll.

It may well be quite ironic, but my own situation makes me more positive than it brings me down. The letters I receive, from many countries, are so beautiful, so encouraging, so full of hope. I think there are unbelievably many now who recognize the truth. The light is burning brighter and brighter. And I have to say that I can really feel all those sweet thoughts and prayers right into my cell. I feel very strengthened. And I have to say that all they do here to humiliate us and to bring us down is a world where everything is upside down. That only makes me want to stand even more upright!

I do not remember exactly what I wrote in the first letter to you, about daily life, so I’ll just tell you.

At 6:00 [morning] we get hot water for tea (weekend at 7:30)
10-11 yard walk (on Sundays from 13:00 to 14:00 because at 10:00 you can go to church, if you want – of course it’s in prison.)

At 11:15 we get a hot lunch. Cell doors stay open until 11:45

At 14:00 to 15:30 doors are unlocked. Dinner comes at 14:00 hours. This food is to be divided up to have some for breakfast. During these 1.5 hours we can go into the hall – there is an office, mailbox, shower room, common room, small tea kitchen.

At 15:30 locked back into the cells until the next day at 10:00.

The food portions are generous and sometimes quite good (unfortunately not today). We can buy some things twice a month. I always order extra fruit (that’s something they do not give us much of), Yoghurt, coffee, stamps, of course! And you just have to buy everything you need – pens, toiletries (they give us soap, toothbrush, toothpaste), brush, comb, etc.

The weeks are punctuated with different “laundry change days”, and there are some extra activities. I participate in everything that’s available for change of scenery and contact with others. Church (beautifully smelling incense and a nice warm room – good atmosphere) does me good; Yoga once a week. Creative group every other week (arts & crafts).

A week ago there was something very special in the church. A baritone singer and piano accompanist gave us the most beautiful concert, ever! That does not happen often here; but I happened to be there! Yehudi Menuhin Foundation donates it for prisons! We know the son for his great book [Menuhin, Gerard – Tell the truth and shame the devil-463pg.pdf]!

I could write a book, but I must close now because right away we’ll have the yard walk… actually I’ll ad some more, half a sheet, because there is more to write …

You ask if there are books. Yes, there is a small library – actually, it’s a list. So you have to order from the list, and on Wednesdays you get the books in. It’s just a matter of luck if the books please you or not. And of course these are only the types of books that do not need to be censored.

We are not allowed to have glitter cards in the cell; e.g. they showed me the card that you sent me, but then took it away, added it to the storage. Luckily, your letter was separate, so I have the letter. Cards are less favorable for me than letters on ordinary paper, because one of their thousands of rules is that you can only have 20 pictures / cards / postcards – the officials themselves are not clear how it really stands. Now they said I’m allowed to have 20 pictures and 20 cards at the same time in the cell. They are generous here! Ha ha! Any of those above the limit then have to go into storage to be retrieved when I get out.

As much as I look forward to the beautiful cards, I regret that I have to part with most of them. I like to read the letters over and over again, but when they are written on cards and then they are gone, then I cannot do this. And I am not allowed blank cards in the room at all. Glitter cards, as I said, not either. Nothing glued on; in other words, no stickers. And they do not like padded or tissue-lined envelopes at all *[just regular simple envelopes]. One could smuggle something in! [­*It appears to be their reasoning.] As I said, there are thousands of rules. And the rules seem to change all the time because the different officials all know them a little differently. I would also like to say very clearly, I am very happy about all the cards, post cards, letters…

I wish you all the best! I very much hope that your health will improve again. And please do not worry about how I am doing because I’m totally okay. You can, of course, pass on parts of my letter, as you see it fit. Now I need to close!

Greetings,
Monika

Thank you for posting Monika's letter, phdnm!

Monika requested, a few days ago, to have a cell by Herself, because it was to noisy for Her to concentrate in a cell with a bunch of other women, so, now She is in a cell by Herself

Due to a reliability issue, per request of phdnm, I have deleted the Stadelheim Prison addresses for Frau Schaefer.

Zum Geburtstag – Happy Birthday


Image



Heute würde unsere Monika ihren 59. Geburtstag mit ihren Freunden feiern. Weil unsere Welt aber, unsere Rasse und unser Volk, von einem bösartigen Parasiten – dem jüdischen Geist und seinen Auswüchsen – lebensbedrohlich befallen ist, verzichtet Monika auf solche Nebensächlichkeiten und persönlichen Freuden des Lebens.

Stattdessen sitzt sie im Kerker einer westlichen Demokratie, der BRD.

Unverblümt legt sie den Finger in die Wunde des Systems, weist allen Vergifteten und Umerzogenen den Weg in die Freiheit und hebt sich dadurch aus der Masse der Heuchler – die zwar Freiheit propagieren aber nichts für sie einzusetzen bereit sind – hervor.


Today our Monika would celebrate her 59th birthday with her friends. Because our world, our race and our people, have been mortally infested by a malignant parasite - the Jewish spirit and its excesses - Monika renounces such trivialities and personal pleasures of life.

Instead, she sits in the dungeon of a Western democracy, the FRG.

Bluntly, she puts her finger into the wound of the system, showing the way to freedom for all those poisoned and transformed, thereby distinguishing herself from the mass of hypocrites who propagate freedom but do not want to use it for them.


Monika Schaefer, Schwarzenbergstrasse 14, D-81549 München (Deutschland)

From the Right End of the Horse


2. Juli 2018

Image


Paul and John, I am here in Munich on the first day of the Schaefer trial (of the Canadian-born Monika and her German-born brother Alfred). Upon my arrival at the Munich courthouse this morning, my attorney RA Wolfram Nahrath ( who also acts today for Monika Schaefer) warned me not to remain in the courthouse building (much less enter the courtroom ) as likely the same trick will occur upon me as played when the German police seized Monika ( while she attended the attorney Sylvia Stolz trial on January 3, 2018). This was when the judge interrupted that hearing to have Monika dragged off from the public gallery to the cells (for these past 6 months) to the Munich Prison and likely could be repeated today once court officials spotted me, as he says they certainly would, in the public gallery. Since February this year, I have been under criminal investigation having been charged with Volksverhetzung para 130/ populace incitement which carries a five years‘ custodial penalty following my ad-libbed speech at the Dresden Commemoration. Wiser our attorney says – but my call – that I leave immediately the risky vicinity to instead make reports from a nearby cafe when they provide me with a full account during the intervals of the day’s proceedings – as a more useful option especially as I not able to comprehend German language proceedings anyway if witnessing the process behind enemy lines.

I decided to take my attorney’s advice as a more effective option (than uselessly being hauled off to a prison cell ) and so am now sitting with Henry Hafenmeyer as he is not allowed inside the courtroom at this time. Henry awaits being called as a witness for the Prosecution for being considered as the video maker ( though in fact, he was not Monika’s video maker).

Though RA Sylvia Stolz warmly thanked me for coming to show „International affection for the Schaefer siblings“ she agrees that my making a report to include this advice as given by my own attorney in fact serves to strengthen the drama of the situation Alfred and his sister Monika are facing in this Alice in Wonderland anti-National Socialist non-Sovereign German legal-land where – ‚first we have the verdict then maybe or maybe not we hear the defendants‘ evidence‘ – is the nonsensical norm for historical sceptics.

Alfred is set upon screening in the courthouse the full story of his awakening via the videos he has made. I am only anxious that the judge may manage to forbid this exposee by him . The great disadvantage here in Germany is that no transcripts are made of these processes. I shall do my best to give you the proceedings from the horse’s mouth.

Day one began at 09.15. The following was reported to me by Attorney Sylvia Stolz. Before the entrance of the two professional judges and the two lay judges, Alfred was able to hug his handcuffed sister while the Press photographed them and while Alfred gave the Roman salute ( a harmless gesture ludicrously outlawed in still Allied / all- lies occupied Germany. Judge Hofmann and Judge Federl entered with the two lay/Schaffe judges but Alfred refused to stand in any acknowledgment of their authority. To this, the judges declared Alfred’s disdain as an offence to the rules whilst Alfred declared them and the Federal Republic of Germany illegitimate since he adheres to the standing legitimacy of the German Reich.

In the „curiouser and curiouser“ world of occupied-German law, the judge declared the defendants would not be allowed anything to drink, and if they insisted, the court proceedings would have be interrupted in recess while they drank water! Alfred instantly demanded a drink which resulted in Monika in handcuffs being temporarily removed from the courtroom. Truly a farcical act of „inquisitional“ (as Alfred stated) power-playing to which fittingly Alfred added that the court was but a clownish „Muppet Show“.

Alfred was told if he offended again he would be heavily fined for complaining that the proceedings were inaudible to him and to the public gallery because Judge Hofmann had ordered that the attorneys not press the live microphone buttons. This instruction wilfully denies due public access to hear the proceedings. When Alfred commenced to read his introductory remarks, the judge demanded he give only a summary. At this, his attorney and Monika’s called for an interruption for two hours in order to draw up a rejection of the sitting judges whom they declared patently prejudicial to the defendant’s right to express his defence in full. The „Holocaust“-denial laws adhere to those of the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland wherein these nonsensical trials precede via „first the verdict then the evidence“. No wonder historical Revisionists are called religious heretics since the International Guidelines for Teaching About the Holocaust on page 11 determine that: „Care must be taken not to disprove the deniers‘ position with normal debate and rational argument“!

Even in the Allied occupier’s land of Britain, not since 2008 has the BBC permitted another World Service broadcast under the title“ Why Can’t We Question the Holocaust?“ In this unique broadcast, when I and Jewish Prof Deborah Lipstadt were invited as the main guests on this hour-long worldwide phone-in radio show, has the public had the normal opportunity to hear some of the Revisionist victories presented instead of the standard Hollywood version of WW2 history.

Ever since the German ex-Constitutional Court Judges Hassimer and Hoffman-Reim called for the repeal of the „Holocaust“-denial laws there have been numerous valiant attempts to enlighten and embolden the law-makers and law-proponents in today’s Germany. Notably these valiant attempts in Germany and Austria were made by the late greats Ernst Zuendel, Dr Herbert Schaller, RA Rieger, Gerd Honsik, – and Horst Mahler, Sylvia Stolz, Germar Rudolf, Henry Hafenmeyer, Dr Rigolf Hennig, Werner Keweloh, Dr Hans Berger, Gunter Deckert, Herr Froerlich, Ursula Haverbeck, Sven L and Christian H to name but a few. Today’s opportunity by Alfred and Monika Schaefer may justly capture the tide to call for this anti-debate law to be called into question and repealed.

Alfred Schaefer in person confirmed the report above given to me by Sylvia Stolz. At 12.30 they returned to the court which has since resumed and I await further news from the right end of the horse…

Meanwhile, persons in the public gallery (only about 6-8 which included two comrades from Japan) have recognised some of the Press as Antifa they recall from Pegida demos. There are about 6 in the Press benches, and one from Bild the popular scandal sheet.

„No surrender“!

Alfred Schaefer Defiant and Taken Into Custody at His Own Trial: Report on Day One of the Trial of Alfred and Monika Schaefer

Posted on July 3, 2018

Alfred Schaefer Defiant and Taken Into Custody at His Own Trial: Report on Day One of the Trial of Alfred and Monika Schaefer


Court case of today, July 2nd Monday, First Day. People clapped as Monika entered. Alfred was already seated or at least in Court and was giving a rather long address that went on quite a long time. The Press seemed to be inside the Court area and took a lot of photos of Monika and Alfred greeting each others. Then the cameras disappeared. We kept on having breaks because of Alfredʼs defiance and refused to recognize the Court as official.

He refused to get up for the entrance of the Judges. He used expressions like “Muppet Show” and “Inquisition”. He also stated something to the Judge like, that we should change positions and that you(the Judge ) should be judged by the Volk.

So there was break actually twice because there was also a member of the audience that stated that he could not hear and if they could speak louder or get a microphone. Around this time Monika also asked if they was an open court or not and if it was an open court, then microphones be used so that everyone can hear. (The microphones actually did not appear until 13:05) It must have been requested before 10:00 AM. Alfred has prepared this brief of about 75 pages and so the Judge decided that was too long and if it could be shortened.

Image

Lawyer/advisor Sylvia Stolz, Wolfram Nahrath, Mr. Miksch (lawyer for Monika Schaefer), lawyer for Alfred Schaefer, Alfred Schaefer, Lady Michele Renouf


So, there was a 2 hour break, from 10:30 until 12:30. Most members of the audience went to the Court cafeteria and had tea, coffee, that kind of things. (Among the audience was Sylvia Stolz, who has been giving Alfred advice) Basically, it was Alfred reading this document (which is about 78 pages and in the end got shortened to about 65 pages but either way it was Alfred reading for several hours.) This presentation was like a documentation of quotes. Here are some that I caught. In chronological order: There were several quotes form Professor Karl Schmidt. Gunter Deckert was mentioned, his translation. Hamas, Hezbollah, Israel The Swastika, Communism and Stalinism USS Liberty, and Freemasonry Quotes from newspapers like Deutsche Allgemeine Zeitung, Haaretz(Israel) Jewish Telegraph…. World Peace Organization, Basel, Switzerland Ritual Defamation and Anti Semitism Horst Mahler, Shlomo Sand, Talmud, 911 and Larry Silverstein, Frederick Vrba?Robert H.Jackson (Robert Houghwout Jackson was an American attorney and judge who served as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. He had previously served as United States Solicitor General, and United States Attorney General, and is the only person to have held all three of those offices. Jackson was also notable for his work as the Chief United States Prosecutor at the Nuremberg Trials of Nazi war criminals following World War II….) Kurt Lewin Roosevelt and NATO Nurnberg(probably the Judgement) R Coudenhove-Kalergi like not one but several quotes, Negroiding of the race, to Pan-European Union concepts one ʻRacial exclusiveness” Judea declares War on Germany… Samuel Untermyer (Israel | Transcript of Samuel … The following is a transcript of Samuel Untermeyer’s speech made on WABC, declaring a ‘holy war’ by the Jews against Germany, and appealing to the masses of non-Jewish humanity to boycott German-made imports …) Something about Downing Street? England? Britain? Theodore Kaufman Anyway quotes for the background and from WW1 to WW2 and post….ʼtil recent like 911.

Anyway this took several hours. Finally what he and Monika are guilty of; The videos, available on U-Tube and one the Internet, in both English and German. The main charge is Paragraph 130. AND videos made with this collaborators, like Gerd Ittner, Henry Hafenmeyer and Brian Ruhe And Alfred kept on insisting about the LUGEN(The Lie) and Judea many many times throughout.

The lawyer of Monika Schaefer’s lawyer was happy as the way it went and how the audience reacted with courage with comment and disapprovals. (There were about dozen or so of us.)


Alfred Schaefer to be put into custody during trial. Basically, he was arrested and put into prison like Monika, as soon as the day’s session was over. After the day’s session, we all got into the car together and we left for his home without him. I could not even wave them goodbye or see them off.

REPORT ON DAY 2 OF THE TRIAL OF POLITICAL PRISONERS MONIKA & ALFRED SCHAEFER IN MUNICH


Image

COURT DAY 2 July 3rd Tuesday: Caption: Alfred Schaefer Released After One Night in Prison!(a small victory)


Number of Press, between 3-4 Security 6 (but feel there are people interested in this case as I see security people sitting down with the audience for a while, looking (body language) very alert and interested but not staying very long(perhaps their break time?)

Audience: 12 and stayed 12 (perhaps with one or two change in the people)

Session starts 12:42 (probably meant to start at 12:30? General Presentation of the day: Very clear, precise and substantial. Unlike yesterday no time was lost for trivial and petty issues like greeting, arrest declaration(of Alfred), and whether water could be available for Alfred and Monika. Hence there was no booing, moans of comments from the audience (unlike yesterday when there were several during the day, culminating with Sylvia Stolzʼs arrest, post Court.( The problem arose due to the fact that although the session was officially finished, the Judge had not left the room yet when she stated that this Court/ session was “Terror” And everyone had to leave the court so she can be arrested

So, unlike yesterday, the audience seemed content and satisfied with what was happening at Court. Alfredʼs lawyer is Frank Miksch and Monikaʼs lawyer is Wolfram Nahrath.

Today was Monikaʼs turn. Hence Lawyer Frank Miksch read first. (After he started there was one interruption/comment from the persecutor. Then he continued again ʼtil the finish. Like yesterday there were many quotes and documents quoted. Newspapers like Allgemein Zeitung, Jewish Chronicle…. Gilad Atzmon and “Holocaust Swindle” Gerald Menuhin…possibly his book (if so was only said in German..)

Then some rather longer section from Allgemein Gazette..Words like, ʻhistoricalʼ ʻobjectiveʼ and journalistic reports and names but I could not really catch or recognize them. But basically the lawyer was trying to show the absurdity of this law 130, or specifically 130.03, applicable only on the German soil. So words like ʻabsurdʼ ʻabsurdityʼ. Holocaust Lugen “psychological law” The historical fact that Auschwitz plaque had been changed from 4 million to 1-plus million. So, why would ʻquestioning the numberʼ be illegal. Words like”totalitarian state”were used. And a constant reference to Bundesrepublik Deutschland something about extreme Right, laws for 100 years.

Holocaust was mentioned every now and then a quote from Richard Wagner on the “predation” (of the Jews)? Also questioning the German law with the expression Article this, Article that…etc. At 1:50 a 10 minutes break until 2PM.

2PM onwards… Another word used was ʻoffenkundigʼ not allowed to question what is so obvious. Another reference often used was this PARAGRAPH 6 of the German law. This would be repeated until the end. Then there are names like Horst Mahler, Zundel, “Bomber Harris Do It Again” in both German and English with obviously more explanation. Staftlaw The the universality of the Law….including the Law of and for Holocaust(Holocaustianity-my comment not his) discussed other genocides/holocausts like Armenia that are to open debate and questioning unlike the version for Judea. But that is not possible in Bundesrepublik Deutschland. So other words mentioned, Ein Volk, and Verboten(forbidden), They were talking about precedent cases too. Horst Mahler, the law=Article 5, often mentioned. And of course Paragraph 6.=exclusive to Germans and to the period of the Third Reich ONLY.

Literature was mentioned. Along with “confrontational” “provocative videos Mein Kampfs (our fights) Meine Freiheit (our freedom) “Totalitarian …” “false interpretation of history”. “Billigen und Miss(German S here)billigen”-(Probably the definition for these words meaning appropriate or inappropriate. Again Paragraph 6 and 130. Also mentioned the fact that a Chinese dissident won a Nobel Prize while in jail. What would be a historical interpretation of the Holocaust? Mentioned in detail was the case of Bishop Richard Williamson, about what happened to him, including being interviewed by a Swedish TV on German soil and its consequences.

At 2:50, the lawyer handed the 22 pgs or so paper to the Judge. In between the Court Clerk came to tell the Judge that the bail has been deposited (5000 Euros) and Alfredʼs passports(Canadian and German) surrendered to the Court so that Alfred can be released from custody. The Judge signed a document. This occurred around 2:30. Therefore at the next break took place from 2:50 to 3:00 p.m. Alfred is greeted by friends and his wife outside the trial area.

3:00 p.m.: Lawyer talks now. Some articles of 2005, words like Auschwitz, ʻLugenʼ(lie) and Dr.Stefan Godsta. Article 5 was mentioned again. There was more quotations and documentation.

The lawyer concluded at 15:25. He lawyer handed the paper over to the Judge. Somewhere in the day 2 ex-constitutional Judges, Hoffman-Reim and Hassimer were quoted who had stated that the Holocaust Law should be repealed. Then, the Prosecutor gave a kind of critique. She is critical of provoking “emotionality”(provoking on purpose that?) First Lawyer Frank Miksch responds (rather briefly) followed by Lawyer Wolfram (much longer and observers said he responded quite eloquently to the critique) stating that it is just Alfred's personal style and emotions are natural and appropriate to what one is reading. The Judge then thanks the 2 lawyers and says few words. There is a very short pause. Then, the Judge continues, basically on how the proceedings will be the following day. And other technicalities like the agreement on showing Alfredʼs video. As well on the following day, the Court will listen to Monika and Alfred life, starting off with their childhood.

The trial finished around 4:30PM and will proceed at 10 tomorrow morning.

Canadian Holocaust denier on trial in Germany for 'incitement to hatred'

If Albertan Monika Schaefer is convicted, she faces up to five years in prison


Image


Jul 06, 2018


A Jasper, Alta., woman who denied the Holocaust in at least one video posted on YouTube is on trial at a criminal courthouse in Munich.

Monika Schaefer, 59, and her 63-year-old German-Canadian brother, Alfred Schaefer, who lives near Munich, are being tried together for Volksverhetzung, which officially translates in English from the German Criminal Code as "incitement to hatred," said court spokesperson Florian Gliwitzky in an email to CBC News on Friday.

"Both are under suspicion, that they published video clips, in which they denied the genocide of Jews in the Holocaust during World War II," Gliwitzky said.

The siblings' trial began Monday this week and continued Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. It is scheduled to continue July 12, 13 and 16.

If found guilty, the German sentence for the crime ranges from a fine up to five years in prison.

Imprisoned in Germany

Monika Schaefer gained notoriety in July 2016 after appearing in a YouTube video in which she described the Holocaust as the "biggest and most pernicious and persistent lie in all of history." She expressed her view that six million Jewish people did not die at the hands of Nazi Germany.

At least one hate speech complaint was filed against her with the Alberta and Canadian human rights commissions. ​

B'nai Brith, a Canadian Jewish advocacy group, alerted an intermediary in Germany who then went to police about the video, said Aidan Fishman, a director with the organization. He said that when Schaefer visited the country, she would have been on their radar.

German freelance photojournalist Anne Wild, who contracts with organizations that monitor far-right organizations' activity, recalled Monika Schaefer's arrest in January at the trial of convicted German Holocaust denier, Sylvia Stolz. Since then, Monika Schaefer has been imprisoned in Germany.

'An outrageous incident'

Wild, one of the accredited press representatives, attended the Schaefer siblings' trial in a low-level criminal court for three days this week. She said it was the first time she has attended the trial of a foreigner for "incitement of hatred."

Wild said the duo had about 15 supporters showing up on a regular basis.

"There was an incident right at the beginning that was really sort of horrible," Wild said. "When Alfred Schaefer was brought into the room, and he was joined by his sister who was brought in, he showed the Nazi salute three times in a row. This is really an outrageous incident in the courtroom.

"His sister, she was laughing at it, she was laughing."

Wild said Alfred Schaefer has been vocal throughout the trial so far, telling the court he appreciated sharing his views. Monika Schaefer has been quiet, only speaking when spoken to and smiling every so often at her supporters, she said.

Born in Canada of German heritage, Monika Schaefer described herself on her Facebook page as a self-employed violin instructor. She ran for the federal Green Party in Alberta's Yellowhead riding in 2006, 2008 and 2011. She was ousted from the party after controversy over the video.

Sparse media coverage

Wild said there were only three journalists, including herself, in the courtroom. But these type of trials in Germany generally don't get a lot of media attention, Wild said.

"Some of them think that if you cover it too much, you will just promote it. They don't want to promote it," she said. "It's sort of a mixture. We have to talk about it, but we don't want to talk too much about it."

While Wild said denying the Holocaust in public is rare in Germany, it is a criminal offence. She said there are approximately 250 Holocaust deniers currently imprisoned in Germany. She photographed a June 30 protest against their imprisonment.

Image

A German sign at a June 30 protest against imprisoning Holocaust deniers translates in English as 'free Monika Schaefer.'


"Still there's a community of several thousand people who are more or less openly convinced that the Holocaust is a lie," Wild said.

But "there is a big discussion in Germany about what is opinion and what is a crime," she added.

Report Day 4 of Political Prisoners Monika & Alfred Schaefer Trial in Munich: Spectator Jailed 4 Days For Having Told Prosecutor She Should See A Prison From The Inside & Alfred Schaefer Screens Videos Showing His Awakening

Report Day 4 of Political Prisoners Monika & Alfred Schaefer Trial in Munich: Spectator Jailed 4 Days For Having Told Prosecutor She Should See A Prison From The Inside & Alfred Schaefer Screens Videos Showing His Awakening

The fourth day in Munich started again very spectacularly. But let us have a process observer report who has already gathered some information for us over the past few days:

Today began quite turbulently. After the appearance of the Inquisition court, the chairman asked the audience who a Mr. X was. When he reported himself, he was confronted with the accusation that the day before he allegedly insulted a public prosecutor in the lobby by saying to her that he wished that she would also see a prison from the inside, which the judge punished – besides himself with excitement – with 4 days in custody.

Immediately after this announcement, Mr. X was led out of the room by police officers. His statement that his car was still out there somewhere was angrily answered by the judge with the statement that he did not care. He really shouted at Mr. X: “Get out, I don’t want to see you here anymore”. Suddenly he also asked Alfred Schaefer what he thought of it. Alfred Schaefer replied that he did not want to comment, because words in this court are always reinterpreted and a comment is therefore too dangerous for him. The hearing was then suspended for a short time because the judge said he needed 5 minutes to calm down.

The fourth day, From a process reporter:

When the hearing was reopened, Alfred Schaefer’s lawyer filed a motion to dismiss the judge on the grounds of partiality. Thereupon, the sitting was suspended for two hours, but the motion was rejected by the public prosecutor at the beginning of the resumption of negotiations on the grounds of “juxtaposition of suspicions”.

Afterwards, the video presentations, which had already begun the day before, continued. Again, two icons were pointed out that are juxtaposed in the video. On the left side of the picture a Jewish star is shown and on the right side a swastika, which is shown in Alfred Schaefer’s video as a symbol of evil, because at the time he still believed that the swastika stood for evil. This juxtaposition of the two symbols is apparently the subject of the charge.

In the video, that had a high distribution rate that caused great astonishment in court, Prof. Noam Chomsky from a university in America is questioned about 9/11. Prof. Chomsky explains in the interview that there is no evidence that the American government was involved in the terrorist attack. Alfred Schaefer had written to Prof. Chomsky based on this interview and read out his letters to Prof. Chomsky and his reply letters in the video. Prof. Chomsky answered Alfred Schaefer’s letters, but without specifically answering Alfred Schaffer’s questions, which prompted Alfred Schaefer to formulate his letters more strictly.

When the judge reprimands an “aggressive tone” in his correspondence with Prof. Chomsky, Alfred Schaefer explains that one must understand, after all, that Prof. Chomsky is “a guru” in the English-speaking world and that his statements on 9/11 were nevertheless a great disappointment, which is why he called him a “cowardly traitor” and “Zionist fascist”. Prof. Chomsky missed a great opportunity because he could have rehabilitated himself. Instead, he risked his good reputation for his “fellow believers” and with this statement destroyed all his greatness, even though he had presented him with a clear factual situation.

The judge also accused Alfred Schaefer of also making a threat to all of Prof. Chomsky’s “Jewish friends,” by saying in the video that they would be complicit of guilt if they continued to remain silent about the truth about 9/11. Alfred Schaefer explains the difference between a threat and a warning to the judge using a practical example. He also explained that this video was his first video and more or less represents the beginning of his awakening process. When he realized that some people can obtain more money through fraud and manipulation than armies of workers through honest work, this triggered a political thinking process in him.

The second video shown is an interview with Henry Hafenmayer on the topic “The masterminds of our current situation”. The commentary on this video has been postponed to the following week.

Subsequently, a witness was called who claimed that Alfred Schaefer’s speech at the commemoration ceremony in Bretzenheim on July 25, 2017 was instigation (hate). In addition, Alfred Schaefer concluded his speech with a Roman greeting for 2 or 3 seconds. The judge asked the witness whether the speech had been acknowledged by the audience with applause, which the witness could not remember. The court was shown a photo from the video.

Alfred Schaefer then explained to the court that in this speech he simply reproduced what his father had told him about the Rhine meadow camps and that he would not slander his father as an agitator. His father had observed as a prisoner of war in the Rhine meadow camps how prisoners were brought in healthy, but soon became ill due to the deliberately caused life-threatening circumstances and how daily trucks with the corpses of the deceased prisoners of war were transported away without being told where. His father survived the Rhine meadow camps undamaged only by fortunate circumstances.

Monika Schaefer’s application for exemption from detention was rejected on the grounds that the accusation had not changed.

Again today, the conduct of negotiations in the auditorium was sometimes very difficult to understand.

The dates for the further hearing days are July 12 and 13, each starting at 9:15 a.m. Source: http://die-heimkehr.info

We were not surprised that the dancer [nickname by the author for the female prosecutor] from the first days of the hearing was present again. After all, she had to get medical care today – after being covered in such terribly evil “curses” [not meant literally]. During her performance yesterday, the poor woman did not reveal that she was so delicately strung. When we observe what the persecuted in Germany have to endure – our Monika has been held captive since January 3 – one only wants to just puke. Welcome to the Jewish-Bolshevik constitutional state.

Nevertheless, there is always something pleasing to report. Again and again new spectators appear for such processes and their eyes are now also opened to them. Not only because of the material that is shown and discussed in the trial, but also because of the conditions that prevail in a FRG court. People are really shocked that they have closed their eyes to it for so many years and were so uninterested.

But now, some, after only one day as spectators, they are aware of this: We must stop this madness while we can still breathe with impunity!

Late Breaking News — German Armed Cops Re-Arrest Political Prisoner Alfred Schaefer at His Home Friday

Late Breaking News — German Armed Cops Re-Arrest Political Prisoner Alfred Schaefer at His Home Friday

FRIDAY, July 6, 2018. Today At 2:00 pm, at the home of Alfred Schaefer, he and I had just finished watching and discussing matters regarding his videos which he was succeeding to screen in full in the Munich courtroom. …Then his wife laid table for lunch after I removed my laptop. Then, I went to wash my hands). I then heard Police knocking on my bathroom door announcing their arrival. It was like a nightmare Hollywood movie about a police state action!

At first, I thought maybe high-spirited Alfred was playing a joke. On opening my bathroom door, there stood two armed officers awaiting me. I gave them my passport. They said they’d come to arrest Alfred. I saw five of them handcuff Alfred. He was taken away with the little packed lunch his experienced wife swiftly made and handed to one officer for her husband). Alfred was hauled away about something he had perhaps said perhaps when yesterday ( as he has to do) he had duly turned up at the police station as he must do twice per week since he is out on bail. Whatever this “crime” was, he’s again in a police cell now.

His wife advised that her houseguests, should disappear asap in case police returned knowing now that we two were there, easy to haul in for good measure. What a business — cat and mouse — but at least valiant Frau Schaefer made sure we each took with us our lunch cheese!

“No surrender!”

Loewen argued Canada is not doing enough to combat the spread of neo-Nazi ideas. There is no law against Holocaust denial, which is arguably a form of hate speech, he said.

Former federal Green party candidate on trial in Germany for publishing videos denying the Holocaust


July 9, 2018

A former federal Green candidate disavowed by the party for her anti-Semitic views is on trial in Germany for publishing videos denying the Holocaust.

Monika Schaefer ran unsuccessfully for the Greens in Alberta’s Yellowhead riding in 2006, 2008 and 2011, but the party rejected her as a candidate in 2015 and publicly condemned her views the next year after a video emerged.

German authorities charged Schaefer with six cases of “incitement of the people” for publishing multiple videos denying the Holocaust, said Andrea Mayer, a spokeswoman for Munich’s public prosecutor’s office. Schaefer’s trial began July 2 and is set to continue until August 17.

“The maximum penalty for each case is up to three years’ imprisonment,” Mayer said.

Schaefer was visiting relatives in Germany and attended a court hearing in a different case when she was arrested on Jan. 3, and she’s been in custody ever since, Mayer added.

Schaefer and her brother, Alfred, are German-Canadian and he also faces charges in Germany for Holocaust denial, said Helmut-Harry Loewen, a retired University of Winnipeg sociologist who monitors hate groups.

“Both siblings are now emerging as key figures in the Holocaust denial movement, both in Canada and in Germany,” he said. “They have supporters here in Canada.”

A YouTube channel under the name Alfred S. contains several videos of the siblings questioning the existence of Nazi death camps during the Second World War.

In the 2016 video that prompted public denunciation by the Greens, Monika Schaefer calls the Holocaust the most “pernicious and persistent lie in all of history” and describes concentration camps as “work camps” that didn’t have gas chambers.

The Holocaust is one of the most studied and documented atrocities of the 20th century. The Nazi regime murdered approximately six million Jewish people during the war and also targeted other groups including the Roma, people with disabilities and gay people.

Green party spokesman Rod Leggett said Schaefer voluntarily resigned her membership in 2015 and was prevented from renewing it “the minute the party gained knowledge of her views.”

“The Green Party of Canada strongly condemns hate speech in all its forms and takes all the steps in its power to eviscerate it. Most recently the party has developed mechanisms to improve the vetting of the nomination process,” he said in a statement.

Germany has strict laws against anti-Semitism and hate propaganda in order to prevent another Nazi movement in the country, Loewen said.

But recently, for the first time since the 1940s, candidates from a far-right party were elected to the federal Parliament, and the country is concerned about growing extremism, he said.

“Germany developed these laws as part of its self-definition as a society which promotes more liberal values, all of which are now under threat,” he said.

Alfred Schaefer can be seen in a video taken at a neo-Nazi rally on June 30 in Nuremberg in advance of his trial. He says it’s “time to exterminate” the Jews, using a derogatory term, and concludes his speech with a Nazi salute.

After the judge in his case saw the video, he was ordered jailed pending his trial, Loewen said.

Loewen argued Canada is not doing enough to combat the spread of neo-Nazi ideas. There is no law against Holocaust denial, which is arguably a form of hate speech, he said.

B’nai Brith Canada has been monitoring the Schaefer siblings’ “hateful” online videos for years and was among the groups that notified German authorities about the 2016 video, which was made in Germany, said the group’s CEO Michael Mostyn.

“Over time, these videos got worse and worse,” he said. “Eventually, we believe that they slipped up. While Holocaust denial may be distasteful and despicable, it’s not illegal in Canada, but it is in Germany.”

The internet has facilitated the spread of neo-Nazi propaganda and allowed far-right leaders to gain larger followings, he said.

“Whereas only a few years ago, you had some extremists in their basement printing off a couple cardboard copies of their vile Nazi propaganda … the internet and social media has completely changed the game,” he said.

“That’s why B’nai Brith in Canada feels it is so important that when you have some of the new leaders of this movement that are out there pushing this vile, dehumanizing propaganda, that they face legal consequences whenever possible.”
