The photo above shows a woman in Germany wearing a T-shirt which says “University Auschwitz Est (established) 1941.”  An outline of the gate house into the Auschwitz-Birkeanu camp is shown in the middle.  The words “Final Solution” are on one side of the T-shirt.

I had to read this news article several times before I could understand what this news story was all about.  It is NOT about Auschwitz or the Holocaust; the story is about the Muslims living in Germany who are recruiting young German men to join a radical Islam group called Salafism.  I had no idea that there are thousands of Muslims in Germany and that they are recruiting young German men for jihad.

One thing that confused me is that Auschwitz was NOT established in 1941.  According to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum website, the three Auschwitz camps were established in 1940 and 1942, not in 1941.

This quote is from the news article:

German protester who wore ‘University of Auschwitz, 1941’ T-shirt faces prison
The unnamed woman wore the T-shirt during an anti-Islam rally in October [2014] in Cologne.

A woman in Germany could face up to five years in prison for inciting hatred after she was filmed at an anti-Islam rally wearing a T-shirt that compared the Auschwitz concentration camp to a university.

The woman, who has not been named under German privacy laws, was filmed at a demonstration last October wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the words “University Auschwitz, est. 1941”.

Under a silhouette of one of the infamous Nazi extermination camp’s most distinctive buildings, the T-shirt listed possible courses of study as “genetics, racial science, Final Solution”.

More than 1.1 million Jews were systematically murdered at Auschwitz, along with tens of thousands of gypsies, Poles and Soviet prisoners-of-war. […]

[The woman and her husband] were taking part in a rally organised by a group calling itself Hooligans against Salafism, or HoGeSa, which claimed to be against the rise of hardline Salafist Islam in Germany.

Under Germany’s Volksverhetzung law, inciting hatred against sections of the population or assaulting people’s human dignity is punishable by up to five years in prison.

You can read about the “Final Solution” on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/EasternGermany/Wannsee/Wannsee01.html

When I first started reading books about the Holocaust, years ago, I noticed that the word Muselmann (pl. Muselmänner), which means a Muslim person, was frequently used by the Jewish prisoners to mean a person who was very skinny and starving to death because they were repeatedly shoved out of the food line by the stronger Jews.

Is this the revenge of the Muselmänner?  Are Muslims now converting young Germans to the Muslim religion so that they can kill German non-believers?

Former attorney Sylvia Stoltz convicted yet again of Holocaust denial

I previously wrote about Sylvia Stoltz in a blog post with the title Witch trials in Germany — yesterday and today. 

In Germany, Holocaust denial is called Volksverhetzung which, in English, means “Incitement of the Masses”  God forbid that anyone should incite the masses in Germany, which might result in the extermination of 6 million more Jews.

Today, I read a news story with the headline:

German Ex-Lawyer Convicted of Holocaust Denial in Munich

A former German attorney with well-known links to the far right has been convicted of Holocaust denial and sentenced to 20 months in prison.

Munich state court spokeswoman Andrea Titz said 51-year-old Sylvia Stolz was convicted of inciting racial hatred for denying the Holocaust in a 2012 speech. She argued during her trial that she was exercising her right to free speech.

Stolz already served time for Holocaust denial after a 2008 conviction related to her defense of notorious Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel, who was convicted himself of the crime in Mannheim in 2007.

Zundel’s initial Mannheim trial collapsed after Stolz was banned from the proceedings on grounds she was trying to sabotage them. During the trial, she repeatedly denied the Holocaust and ended a legal document with “Heil Hitler.”

Look up the word “Stolz” on google translate and you will learn that it means “proud” in English. Sylvia Stolz is not only a proud German woman, she is also very brave.  She has literally given up her career as a lawyer to defend Holocaust deniers in Germany.

Correct me if I am wrong, but as I recall, Sylvia Stolz also defended Germar Rudolf in court in Germany.

Holocaust denial is now a crime in 19 countries, but people still continue to deny the Holocaust.  Strangely, no one has ever been able to prove the Holocaust to the satisfaction of the deniers.
