German police are investigating a British woman for suspected incitement after she questioned the Holocaust during a patriotic protest in the eastern city of Dresden.
A spokeswoman for Dresden police says Australian-born Michele Renouf is one of two people being investigated for remarks made at a National Socialist rally Saturday commemorating those killed in the 1945 Allied bombing of the city.
Videos of the rally posted online show Renouf saying the only Holocaust perpetrated in Europe was against German civilians. Publicly denying the so-called holocaust (murder of six million Jews) is a criminal offence in Germany.
Renouf has in the past supported Holocaust sceptic British historian David Irving. Dresden police spokeswoman Jana Ulbricht said Sunday that officers ordered the rally dissolved after determining that two speakers had broken the law.
