Ursula Haverbeck, an 87-year-old grandmother, insisted at her trial that Auschwitz was “not historically proven” to be a death camp.
An 87-year-old grandmother was sentenced to 10 months in jail for Holocaust denial after insisting that Auschwitz was “not historically proven” to be a death camp.
That is “only a belief,” Ursula Haverbeck told a court in Hamburg, causing German media to dub her “Nazi-Oma” (Nazi grandma) on Friday.
Haverbeck is a notorious extremist who was once chairwoman of a far-Right training centre shut down in 2008 for spreading Nazi propaganda.
She already has a criminal record with two fines and a suspended sentence for sedition.
