Ernest Zundel Gets Five Year Sentence

Ernest Zundel, the German citizen who lived in both Canada and the United States between the late 1950s and 2005, before Canada deported him to Germany, and published his views challenging the reality of the Holocaust in print and on a website over the years, has received a five year prison sentence from a German court for various crimes including incitement to racial hatred. Read more in a CBC story here. Several countries in the EU in addition to Germany have laws forbidding the denial of the existence of the Holocaust including Austria, Belgium, and France.
