Nazi Sympathiser Has ‘Legal Right’ to Deny Holocaust, German Court Rules
You can’t fight hate with a muzzle, it’s better to know who the real haters are.
A Nazi sympathiser was within his human right to free speech when he denied the Holocaust - a crime under German law - an appeal court in the country has ruled.
The unnamed man, 82, had walked into a pub and complained about a TV documentary being shown about the Second World War.
He questioned “lies” about the war and two days later handed neo-Nazi material to the landlord in Thuringia, East Germany.
The pub owner reported him, leading to a hate crime conviction.
