Russia will become the next country to make Holoaust denial illegal

According to a news article, in The Jerusalem Post, Russian lawmakers have approved a new law that will make denying the Holocaust illegal. You can read the news article in full at

This quote is from the news article in The Jerusalem Post:

Russian lawmakers approved a bill that would make Holocaust denial illegal.

The lower house of the Russian Parliament, or Duma, passed the measure Friday on its first reading, the Voice of Russia reported Monday, making it illegal to deny the verdict of the Nuremberg Tribunal and punishing the “rehabilitation of Nazism.”

Those found guilty of the crime could be fined up to $8,300 or imprisoned up to three years. Public officials or media personalities would be fined nearly double or face up to five years in prison.

Does anyone, besides me, see a problem with this new law?  The verdict at the Nuremberg IMT included the “proof” that 4 million people had been killed at Auschwitz, and 1.5 million people had been killed at Majdanek, according to the testimony of the Russians.  Now these numbers have been lowered to 1.1 million at Auschwitz and 78,000 at Majdanek.  Not only that, the verdict at the Nuremberg IMT included the “fact” that the Germans had killed prisoners at Katnyn Forest, according to the false testimony of the Russians.

I previously blogged about the Nuremberg IMT at http://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2013/08/27/the-nuremberg-show-trials-aka-the-nuremberg-international-military-tribunal/

I also blogged about the Nuremberg IMT at http://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/11/29/nov-29-1945-fake-evidence-day-at-the-nuremberg-imt/

The news article in The Jerusalem Post continues with this quote:

Those found guilty of the crime could be fined up to $8,300 or imprisoned up to three years. Public officials or media personalities would be fined nearly double or face up to five years in prison.

The bill also needs the approval of the Federation Council, or upper house. It was authored five years ago and resubmitted in February.

“Rehabilitation of Nazism is not only a shot fired at the past and mocking millions of victims,” the head of the Lower House Committee for Security, Irina Yarovaya, a main sponsor of the bill, said in parliament. “It is also a shot fired at the future, an instigation for new crimes against peace and security.”

  1. The third (Ghettoe and first Departations) and the fourth (Deportations to Death Camps) phases of SHoah could start just because of the STALIN-HITLER Treaty of August 26, 1939!! And in the winter 1939/40 my relative had been displaced from Lvov to Alma Ata. I wonder how this my statement would be considered under the new Russian law. I wore the Jelow Star at Vienna in 1942 just s many post-war democrats sere still hailuing Hitler.
