“Holocaust denier” wins case in Greece when his conviction is overturned

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 1:43 pm

You can read about Konstaninos Plevris, a “Holocaust denier”  in this article:

This quote is from the article cited above:

Greek nationalist lawyer and self-confessed anti-Semite, Konstaninos Plevris, author of The Jews: The Whole Truth, was initially found guilty of inciting racial hatred against Jews in December 2007, this verdict being based entirely on outspoken quotations found in the above-mentioned 1400-page book.  […]

Plevris appealed the court ruling, and on the 27th of March 2009 the court of appeals overturned all charges against him. His complete exoneration by the most distinguished legal brains in Greek jurisprudence was to prompt angry charges from Jewish sources that there had been a “miscarriage of justice”.
However, it was not easy to prove that admiration of Adolf Hitler or doubts about the Holocaust could in any way equate with incitement to violence against Jews; nor that failure to love Jews or hold them in high esteem was in itself a crime.

The article cited above includes an interview with Plevris.  This quote is from the interview:

KONSTANINOS PLEVRIS: Three years ago, I published in Athens my book “The Jews: The Whole Truth.” (Picks up book and shows it to camera.) This is 1,400 pages long. This book is full of facts, proofs, references to 270 authors, writers, other books and of course photos. Immediately after the publication of my book, the Central Council of Jews in Greece and the European Jewish Congress started a campaign against me. They went to the prime minister of Greece asking me to be condemned. They went to the Justice Department, and, after three years of legal fights, I have finally won 100 percent in the Supreme Court of Athens. Justice prevailed; the court proved itself to be independent and not under Jewish control.

As far as I know, Plevris is the first person in the history of the world to have had a conviction of “Holocaust Denial” overturned.  This could have a horrendous effect on the Holocaust denial laws in 19 countries, but not in Germany.  In Germany, there is no way that you can beat a Holocaust denial rap because truth is no defense.

This quote is from an interview with Plevris:

PLEVRIS: First of all we have to use common sense. If the Jews are telling the truth, if they are right in what they say, they don’t need to legally penalize so-called “Holocaust Deniers.” If you’re right about something and someone denies it, you can prove that he is wrong. But the Jews use the penal law. This is unbelievable to me. […]
If the Jews are right, they are obliged to accept a public dialogue. This they refuse. It’s not only forbidden to deny that the “Holocaust” occurred as such — even to doubt it is a crime! In Germany and Austria you are not even allowed to express doubts about the “Holocaust.” Unfortunately, there is no more any Deutschland. Instead there is “Judenland.” If you go to Germany, you will see “Holocaust” monuments and memorials everywhere.

Here is one final quote from the article:

During my trial [Prevris] said to the court: “Look, these people claim that they are God’s chosen people, and they have the nerve to accuse me of being a racist! How can I be the racist here when it is they who claim that they, the Jews, are chosen by God?”

The photo below is included in the article about Holocaust denial.

The photo above is very controversial. You can read about the photo on this website:

I have blogged several times about inappropriate photos being used in Holocaust articles. The photo above, which is a fake photo, should not be used in a story about Holocaust denial because it is FAKE, FAKE, FAKE.


  1. My father was buried alive in a Nazi camp located in the Netherlands in 1943. I was born in Amsterdam where over 100,000 Jews were sent to Germany and Poland to be murdered. Only less than 5000 returned. WHERE DID THE OTHER 95000-PLUS JEWS GO? According the Amsterdam officials after the war, they went on “vacation” in Poland, and demande from he returned Jews back rent for he years hey were on “vacation”.

    Anyone who tells me that the Holocaust is fiction can receive a punch in the mouth, their teeth flying to dance on the pavement. I have dedicated many pages (with photographic proof (onsite images not fabricated) that the Holocaust did take place.

    Himmler’s daughter Gudren Burwitz-Himmler is very much in charge to support deniers. Yes she is active today, and responsible for the latent Nazism in Germany through a secret organization named Stille Hilfe (Silent Aid). They meet in secret under the umbrella of providing aid to the disadvantaged. The “leader” of the group is genocide guru’s Heinrich Himmler’s adorable child Gudrun Himmler, pampered by mass-murderer Hitler himself. She dedicated her life to save thousands of Nazis from prison.

    I had hoped to visit Greece, but that will no longer take place.

    • I have searched and searched on the internet to find some verification that the Nazis buried people alive in the Netherlands in 1943. All I could find was information about people being sent to concentration camps; nothing about people being buried alive.

      The only thing that I found was this mention of Dutch resistance fighters being buried after they died while fighting as illegal combatants during World War II:
      Begin quote:
      Some 374 Dutch resistance fighters are buried in the Field of Honor in the Dunes around Bloemendaal. In total, some 2,000 Dutch resistance members were killed by the Germans. Their names are recorded in a memorial ledger Erelijst van Gevallenen 1940-1945, kept in the Dutch parliament
      End quote

      I found this information about the Dutch Resistance fighters on Wikipedia:
      Begin quote
      Dutch resistance developed relatively slowly, but the event of the February strike and its cause, the random police harassment and deportation of over 400 Jews, greatly stimulated resistance. The first to organize themselves were the Dutch communists, who set up a cell-system immediately. Some other very amateurish groups also emerged, notably De Geuzen, set-up by Bernard IJzerdraat and also some military-styled groups started, such as the Ordedienst (‘order service’). Most had great trouble surviving betrayal in the first two years of the war.
      End quote

      If your father was fighting as an illegal combatant in wartime, he knew the risks involved. Was he buried alive, standing up, or was he buried alive in a shallow grave, where he was found after the body was dug up?
