A German grandmother has been sentenced to ten months in jail for saying Auschwitz was a labour camp.
Ursula Haverbeck, who is a friend of Gudrun Burwitz - elderly daughter of Heinrich Himmler - was sentenced in a court in Hamburg for sedition over an interview she gave to a TV denying that Jews were murdered in extermination camps.
In the interview with the german ARD network she claimed the camp of Auschwitz in Poland was nothing more than a labour camp for jews, communists and criminals.
Haverbeck has been sentenced several times in the past for her trenchant views supporting the National Socialists. Around 30 NS activists were in court in Hamburg to support her. During her defence she said that "the Holocaust was the greatest and longest lived lie in history".
Judge Björn Jönsson struggled to maintain his temper with the elderly woman after she said she shlouldn't be punished for the crime again as she had already been fined twice and given a suspended sentence for previous "Holocaust denials".
He said: "I do not have to prove the Holocaust to you, same as I do not have to prove that the earth is round. It is futile to discuss facts with people like you. A thief who steals the same thing again and again is punished again and again".
