German grandmother, 87, is sentenced to ten months in jail for saying Auschwitz was 'just a labour camp'.
In the interview with the ARD network she claimed the death camp of Auschwitz in Nazi occupied Poland, where at least 1.1 million people were murdered, was 'nothing more than a labour camp.'
I find this to be quite sad.
To imprison such an elderly woman simply because of her statements or views...
If she was inciting, encouraging or calling for violence, I could understand imposing a penalty.
Understood that some people are going to be offended or upset by her views/statements but she's simply questioning or disagreeing with an aspect of history...
Kind of hypocritical that we in the West are imprisoning people for their statements and views while at the same time pointing our fingers at other "repressive regimes".
Also a bit ironic that it seems perfectly legal to say very disturbing things about another group (Moslems), some even calling for the entire extermination...

That's like telling anyone who think North Korea is a totalitarian state to move there to enact change.
You do realise how silly that sounds don't you ?

Did they put up concentration camps and killed millions because of slave work until they died alone and if not they were gassed and then burned? If not, no.

She broke the law, so what's the problem?
The law is the problem.
And off course, subservient idiots.
German's don't have a problem with it, why do you?
