88 Yr Old German Woman Sentenced To 6 Months In Jail For Denying Holocaust…Again

Fact checked

An 88-year-old German grandmother Ursula Haverbeck has been sentenced to six months in jail for having the wrong opinion.

A Berlin court found Haverbeck, who is also known as ‘Nazi Grandma’, guilty of inciting hatred by saying that Holocaust is a fiction and there were no gas chambers in the Auschwitz concentration camp.

Despite several previous convictions, Haverbeck has not yet spent time in prison.

RT reports: Haverbeck, a notoriously fervent denier of the mass killings of Jews during Holocaust, received yet another conviction, this time for claiming at an event in Berlin in January last year that Holocaust did not happen and nobody was gassed in the infamous death camp in Auschwitz, that claimed lives of 1.1 million people between 1940 and 1945, mostly Jews.

Haverbeck who pleaded not guilty, alleged that she was citing from a book when speaking at the event. However, upon studying the half-a-minute footage, the court determined that it “was her own speech” and found her guilty. Her lawyer’s argument that prosecuting her violates Haverbeck’s right to free speech, failed to score any points with the judge. Moreover, while on trial, the accused repeated the statement, Der Spiegel reports.

An author for Neo-Nazi magazines, Haverbeck has never minced words in expressing her more-than-controversial beliefs no matter the consequences.

Next month, she is set to stand trial on similar charges in the town of Detmold, where she is appealing the eight-month jail sentence the court handed to her last September. The charges revolving around her letter to Detmold’s mayor in which she insisted that Auschwitz was a plain labor camp. The letter was timed with the trial of a former SS guard at the Auschwitz death camp, Reinhold Hanning, tried in Detmold. The court eventually sentenced Hanning to five years behind bars “for accessory to murder in 170,000 cases.”

In August, Haverbeck lost an appeal in the district court of Verden in Lower Saxony, which increased her jail term from 10 months to two years without parole. The court found her guilty of inciting to Holocaust denial.

Under German law, incitement of hatred constitutes not only encouraging hatred or violence to a particular group of people, but also approving of, denying or downplaying Nazi crimes. Those found guilty by the court face up to five years in prison. However, Haverbeck is yet to serve any jail time, as the decisions in her cases are still pending.

Haverbeck has also received two fines and a suspended sentence for sedition.


    • she wont mind since there were no gas chambers in auschwitz. the chimney you see there now was built in 1947. red cross had observers in each and every concentration camp. they tallied and documented each and every death in those camps. their staggering number was 271,301
      there is more than enough evidence that this warrior lady is right.

  1. She is not just any old woman. She made it her lifes work putting the history of WWII in context. And yes it is a crime acording to German law to say what she says. But that doesn’t mean she is wrong. She does offer sound prove for her statements. We also should remember she lived through the period.

  2. I am generally for all freedom of speech except when it antagonizes direct violence. I did not find anything wrong with her speech. I believe the global elitists are occultists.

  3. If the nazi concentration camps were a crime against humanity, then what were the allied bombings of Dresden and Bremen?
