Hans Schmidt has just published a memoir of his 1995 incarceration by the German thought-police, Jailed in 'Democratic' Germany: The Ordeal of an American Writer. As many SR readers will remember, Schmidt was grabbed by German thought police while returning home from Germany in the summer of 1995. The 68-year-old writer was arrested and imprisoned in a fortress-like prison at Buetzow. It would be months before Schmidt managed to return to his home in Florida.

What was Schmidt’s “crime?” This daring German nationalist dared to criticize the current regime running Germany in a publication written in the United States. Readers of this volume will learn, as did Schmidt, that the U.S. State Department does not protest the imprisonment of its citizens for certain politically incorrect ideas.

Schmidt’s volume assails human rights abuses practiced today in Germany, as well as attacks on our own rights to freedom of speech and expression. In return for this service. Jailed in 'Democratic’ Germany is already prohibited in Germany. This forthright documentation of Schmidt’s Orwellian ordeal should awaken patriots around the globe. This volume is recommended for all interested in totalitarian injustice and the case for revisionism. (Richard Widmann)
