The repeatedly convicted Holocaust denier Ursula Haverbeck was sentenced to prison again just a few weeks after her release from prison. The district court of Berlin-Tiergarten imposed a one-year prison sentence on the 92-year-old on Friday. The judge reasoned that she was again guilty of sedition.

The 92-year-old from North Rhine-Westphalia, who did not come to the court to deliver the verdict, is charged with denying the Holocaust in an interview published on the Internet in March 2018. Haverbeck had stated in the process that the allegations had been taken out of context or were false. The 92-year-old from North Rhine-Westphalia was released from prison in Bielefeld just a few weeks ago. She had served a total of two and a half years in prison for sedition.

For years, criminal courts have had to deal with statements made by the elderly woman. In 2004, she was first convicted of sedition and received a fine. Most recently, prison sentences were given without parole.

The elderly woman repeatedly claimed that the Auschwitz concentration camp was not an extermination camp, but a labor camp. According to historians’ estimates, the Nazis murdered at least 1.1 million people in Auschwitz-Birkenau alone.
