An 88-year-old woman known as the ‘Nazi Grandma’ has been sentenced to two years in jail for denying the holocaust and inciting hatred.
Holocaust denier Ursula Haverbeck was handed a two-year prison sentence after she lost her appeal to reverse a 10-month sentence she received earlier this year.
Earlier this year, Haverbeck was found guilty of sedition, the offence of inciting others to hatred and rebellion, after she published several articles in which she denied that the holocaust occurred in local newspaper Stimme des Reiches (Voices of the Reich).
The grandmother appealed the court’s decision, but on Monday 29 August she was found guilty of eight counts of inciting the German people to holocaust denial and sentenced to two years in prison without parole. Read more here.
