George Orwell

Revisionist author and scholar Germar Rudolf, who has been wanted in Germany for violating a law against "Holocaust Denial," was deported last night by the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The United States deportation of Germar Rudolf, ended a decade of eluding German Thought Police. Rudolf is wanted in Germany for his 1995 conviction of the trumped up charged of inciting "racial hatred" in violation of Germany’s Holocaust denial legislation. Rudolf fled Germany in 1996 to avoid imprisonment. He sought political asylum in the United States.

Rudolf, a chemist from Stuttgart and editor of “Dissecting the Holocaust,” was sentenced by the German government to 14 months in prison for publishing a scientific report refuting the veracity of the gas chambers of Auschwitz-Birkenau. Rudolf tested bricks in the gas chambers for traces of Zyklon B. His report asserted that because he did not find evidence of Zyklon B on the sampled bricks it was unlikely that the mass gassings of Jews occurred at Auschwitz.

Rudolf applied for political asylum in the United States in 2000, claiming political persecution in Germany. A federal immigration judge denied Rudolf’s asylum claim and ordered him deported in June 2003.

On Oct. 19 Rudolf appeared at the Chicago office of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to apply for a green card based on his marriage to a U.S. citizen. A records check revealed his outstanding order of deportation and he was immediately taken into federal custody.

Rudolf was deported to Frankfurt under the escort of two ICE officers and turned over to the custody of the German Federal Police.
