Why Holocaust denial is against the law in some countries

Filed under: Dachau, Germany, Holocaust — furtherglory @ 10:57 am

You can read an answer on Quora about why “Holocaust denial” is against the law in some countries:

The following quote is from the answer:

Begin quote

Clearly criminalising holocaust denial is against free speech.  Equally clearly, some countries have made a decision that free speech is not a be all and end all, but must be balanced against the other rights of the people in their society.

The countries that have laws making holocaust denial a crime are almost entirely those that were directly affected*: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Poland, Romania

The European Union also has a Framework Decision for Combating Racism and Xenophobia** by which signatories agree to criminalise inciting violence or hatred, against race, colour, religion, descent or national or ethnic origin, condoning, denying or grossly trivialising genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. Although full implementation was blocked by the United Kingdom and the Nordic countries.

In addition several of the countries with laws criminalising holocaust denial, and several other countries, have more generic laws preventing either usage of Nazi symbols or denial of crimes against humanity.

Many of these countries:

  • feel the right not to be subjected to racism, xenophobia and anti-Semitism is more important than the right to free speech
  • limit speech in other ways, such as banning hate speech.
  • have other laws designed to suppress any potential revival of Nazism

End quote

There is an easy way to stop people from denying the Holocaust: Don’t let anyone see the former concentration camps. Especially, don’t let anyone see the alleged gas chambers.

Seeing the alleged gas chambers was what put me on the Road to Denial. Of course, I had one advantage: I had seen a real gas chamber in Jefferson City, MO. I knew that a gas chamber requires a high smoke stack to get rid of the gas fumes. So when I saw the alleged gas chamber at Dachau, I said to myself: “Something wrong!” There was no high smoke stack.



  1. There is Government law and there are tacit rules. Don’t delude yourself if you live in a country where Holocaust revisionism is not against the law. Media blackout, one-sided propaganda, vilification, belittling, and other tricks of social engineering are at least as efficient for the almost annihilation of an idea, a theory or a view as prohibition by law is. In fact, the revisionist findings would be even less marginalized in America and Britain with an anti-revisionist law than they are without such a law because of number of American and British citizens would be intrigued by an open prohibition of Holocaust revisionism. The guardians of the Holo-Temple know that and that’s the reason why they rather opted for the strategy of annihilation by tacit rules in the United States and Britain. The guardians of the Holo-Temple opted for anti-revisionist laws (i.e. the strategy of open prohibition) only in the countries where people do not culturally cherish the illusory concept of free speech. Being mute (prohibition by law) or being inaudible (prohibition by tacit rule), what’s the difference? Nobody can hear you in both cases after all…

    • edit: read “because a number of American and British citizens ” instead of “because of number of American and British citizens”

  3. Why is Holocaust denial against the law in some countries?

    Because, exposed to the Light of Day, it would melt like an ice cube on a hot sidewalk.

    Next question?

  4. As if an article was needed to explain this — the reasons are always the same, and have been the same for decades — not to mention infantile.

    • The video would be better 1) without the interjections of laughter, which come off as childish; 2) a few brief comments at the end to refute some of the more absurd statements this woman makes, eg about the soap made of the fat of murdered Jews, and that sometimes gas and sometimes water came out of the shower heads (working shower heads at A-B?) — to show these Jews cannot keep their lies straight.

      • I do have a video without the laughter but this will still stay up because honestly you have to throw this type of nonsense right back at them.
        The Jews have to be laughed right out of the game they are playing.
