Austrian Holocaust denier gets six-and-a-half years in prison

It was the third time that Wolfgang Frohlich (r), 56, had been found guilty on similar charges, following letters to Austrian members of parliament and Pope Benedict XVI denouncing the genocide as a "Satanic lie."
VIENNA (AFP)---A Vienna court sentenced Monday a former extreme-right city councillor to four years in prison for Holocaust denial, adding another two-and-a-half years of a previous suspended sentence, a report said.
It was the third time that Wolfgang Frohlich, 56, had been found guilty on similar charges, following letters to Austrian members of parliament and Pope Benedict XVI denouncing the Holocaust as a "Satanic lie," the APA news agency said.
Pleading "absolutely not guilty," according to APA, Frohlich had already served 23 months behind bars since 2003 -- and gasped in court as the other 29 months were added.
Frohlich -- kicked out of the populist far-right FPOe party in 1994 -- is to appeal, said his lawyer, Harald Schuster.
Austria has one of the strictest sets of laws surrounding Holocaust denial and neo-Nazi activity.
British revisionist historian David Irving spent 13 months in jail after his arrest in 2005 before being expelled to the UK.
NWN: And yet another use of the Courts ! Please forgive me if I am wrong, but a 'symbol' of the Courts is a lady with a set of scales in one hand and a sword in the other. The lady/symbol is blindfolded.
Looking at recent events there is a central control over all this it is all too organised.

Why are THEY becoming so bold and why are they clamping down so much on Holocaust denial.

Are they worried that due to the Iranian conference that they are losing their advantage or is it the numerous web sites exposing this lie. Are they feeling more secure, when they can put people on trial for Holocaust denial at a whim or are they becoming more desperate??

Klaus Zwilsky, 74, of Calvert County MD, is a Holocaust
survivor. ...


He was not sent to a concentration camp, nor did he spend World War
II hiding in the home of a sympathtic non-Jew. Instead, Zwilsky
survived in a Jewish hospital in Berlin, with the knowledge, and consent, of
the Nazi government.


Zwilsky is one of twenty who were interviewed for Daniel B. Silver's
book "Refuge in Hell: How Berlin's Jewish Hospital Outlasted the
Nazis." The book details how the 800 or so Jews living in the hospital managed
to survive in the capital of Nazi Germany. Causes range from
bureaucratic infighting to German leader Adolf Hitler's ambivalence
about how to handle Jews of German descent to the simple fact that the
Nazis needed a place to treat Jews.


They did not know at this time that places like Theresienstadt were
not relocation camps but places for Jews to be held before they were
sent to their death at another location. Zwilsky and his family did
not learn about many of these things until after the war.


"We didn't know at the time," he said, that the Nazis were systematically executing Jews. "You find out all these things afterwards."
