Holocaust-Denying ‘Nazi Grandma’ Convicted By German Court

(JTA) — Ursula Haverbeck, a well-known historical revisionist and neo-Nazi was again convicted of Holocaust denial.

Haverbeck, 88, was convicted on a Berlin district court on Monday and sentenced to six months in prison, Deutche Welle reported.

The conviction was for saying at an event in the city in January 2016 that the Holocaust did not occur and that there were no gas chambers at the Auschwitz Nazi death camp, which she said was a labor camp. Haverbeck said she will appeal the conviction.

Holocaust denial is illegal in Germany.

She is scheduled to go on trial in the western German down of Detmold for the third time, after twice being convicted of incitement to hatred there for denying a genocide of the Jews during World War II.

German media call her the “Nazi grandma,” according to DW.
