A well-known German neo-Nazi has again been convicted of Holocaust denial and sentenced to prison, but is showing no signs of changing her views.

 

 

The DPA news agency reported that in her closing statement in Verden District Court on Monday, 88-year-old German author Ursula Haverbeck talked of the "Auschwitz lie" and said the infamous death camp was actually a labor camp where nobody was killed by gas.

Haverbeck has been charged with Holocaust denial—which a crime in Germany—over the content of several articles she wrote for the Voice of the Reich magazine. She was sentenced for two and a half years in prison.

 

Haverbeck said she would appeal her conviction.

 

She is currently free as she appeals other convictions from courts in Detmold and Lueneburg.
