‘Nazi Grandma’ holocaust denier Ursula Haverbeck sentenced to jail

DW

An 87-year-old woman has been sentenced to prison after she claimed that Jews were never exterminated in Auschwitz. Her criminal record includes two fines and another sentence for sedition.

A court in Detmold on Friday sentenced Ursula Haverbeck to eight months in jail on charges of sedition. The presiding judge ruled out the possibility of parole and said that Haverbeck had a lack of “any kind of respect” and that she had made more offensive comments in the courtroom.  

defaultHaverbeck is expected to appeal against the sentencing. In Germany, anyone who publicly denies, endorses or plays down the extermination of Jews during Adolf Hitler’s regime can be sentenced to a maximum of five years in jail.

Haverbeck was found guilty of writing a letter to Detmold’s mayor, Rainer Heller, saying it was “clearly recognizable” that Auschwitz was nothing more than a labor camp. She wrote her message at the time when the Detmold court was trying Reinhold Hanning, a former guard who served at the Auschwitz concentration camp.

The 94-year-old was sentenced to five years in prison after the court found him guilty of being an accessory to the murder of 170,000 people

, mostly Jews. Haverbeck spoke about Hanning’s trial in her letter, alleging that the witnesses at the trial were set up to prove the existence of the concentration camp.

Ursula Haverbeck is known for her right-wing extremist views. Several courts have sentenced her and her punishments include two fines and another suspended sedition sentence.

She was on trial last year for saying that the Holocaust was “the biggest and longest-lasting lie in history.”

An estimated 6 million Jews were exterminated across Europe under Adolf Hitler’s dictatorship.

  1. “She was on trial last year for saying that the Holocaust was “the biggest and longest-lasting lie in history.”

    The TRUTH is NOT a defense in German courts. The jewb#tch ‘judge’ in Zundel’s trial said so.

    “An estimated 6 million Jews were exterminated across Europe under Adolf Hitler’s dictatorship.”

    They also said that artificial sweeteners were safe, WMDs were in Iraq and Anna Nicole married for love.

  2. There is a video on YouTube. Look up 10 newspapers 6 million jews. The figure is still staggering even if the Russians and the Red Cross determined a final talley of 272000 mostly by typhus.No one will believe this bit of history 30 years + BEFORE 1945. 10 newspapers 6 million jews.

  3. It’s all speculation.

    I Wasn’t there.

    I didn’t see it.

    What’s real to me…

    Is my pain…my anger,, right here..
    right now.

    Oh.. and by the way…

    Drudge has a picture of Trump holding and kissing a young black girl.

    I just wish she would have just grabbed his comb over and btch slapped him.

    Oh… tugging on your heart strings.

    I’m sure after the picture.

    They threw the prop out.

    Probably by a big azz black security guard.

  4. Wow. 87 years old and they are throwing her in prison for saying she doesn’t believe in something. Why are they so afraid of her? What the HELL can she do to them if she’s 87 years old? Beat them with a cane?

    Seriously, these people are sick as shit with no shame whatsoever.

    1. NC, it’s called intimidation and using her as an example. In other words, they are showing that if they’ll do it to an elderly woman, they’ll do it to anyone. ..
