"Thoughtcrime does not entail death: thoughtcrime IS death."
George Orwell

Leading revisionist scholar Germar Rudolf, best known for his Rudolf Report: Expert Report on Chemical and Technical Aspects of the 'Gas Chambers' of Auschwitz, has been sentenced to 30 months imprisonment by a court in Mannheim, Germany.

Rudolf, who is married to an American citizen, was deported from the United States to Germany in 2005, where he was charged with "incitement to hatred" and "stirring up the people."

Rudolf has written and edited several books on the Holocaust, among them the ambitious Holocaust Handbook Series. An anthology that he edited, Grundlagen zur Zeitgeschichte (engl. translation: Dissecting the Holocaust) was ordered burned by a German judge in 1995.

The treatment of this German scholar by the government of Germany is an indictment of that country for flagrant human rights abuses. Rudolf's sentence is also a clear demonstration of the need for repeal of all "Holocaust denial" laws throughout Europe.
