‘Nazi Grandma’ Fails To Show Up For Prison Sentence

(JTA) — A search is underway for the octogenarian known as the “Nazi Grandma,” after she did not show up for her prison sentence for Holocaust denial.

Ursula Haverbeck, 89, was sentenced to two years in prison for incitement caused by public Holocaust denial.  She was due to show up to the prison in the German town of Bielefeld on Wednesday.

Her home in central Germany has not been inhabited for days as evidenced by piled up mail, a local newspaper reported, according to the Associated Press.

Holocaust denial is illegal in Germany.

Haverbeck has been convicted and sentenced to prison on several occasions for writing articles denying the Holocaust and incitement to hate. She has appealed all the decisions, however, and has yet to spend any time in jail.
