Canadian Woman Arrested in Germany for Questioning Holocaust in Video

Monica Schaefer
image_pdfimage_print
B’nai Brith Canada reports that Monika Schaefer, a woman from Alberta, Canada, was arrested in Germany, a country that forbids questioning the Holocaust.  She could be facing a 5-year prison term.  The Jewish group, B’nai Brith, filed complaints with German officials against Schaefer because she committed “anti-Semitic incitement.”  This was because Schaefer had made a video in 2016 entitled Sorry Mom, I Was Wrong about the Holocaust, that went viral with 160,000 views. In the video (see below), she says she regrets reproaching her German mother for not doing something to stop the death camps.

 

Later, however,  as she expressed it, she learned that the Holocaust was the “biggest and most pernicious and persistent lie in all of history.”  She said that the detention camps definitely existed but live prisoners were needed, not dead, so that they could work in the factories to produce for the war effort.  She says the only gas used in the camps was to kill disease-carrying lice on clothing.  For this, she was imprisoned.  [After all the powerful literature and imagery that has out-poured about Nazi Death Camps, it is hard to even consider that the information might not be totally accurate. Devotion to accuracy, however, is not what fires the passion in this debate.

There is no significant event in history that has not spawned disagreement among serious historians about whose account is accurate. Consider the vastly different accounts of the American Revolution – one found in American history books and the other in British history books. The War Between the States is another example. Northern writers describe it as a struggle against slavery and to preserve the Union. Those in the South describe it as a struggle against economic plunder by the industrial North and an assault against state sovereignty.  Everyone knows that history is written by the winners.  The point, however, is that even the winners have never gone so far as to throw people in prison for challenging the official narrative. So why is Monika Schaefer being thrown into prison in Germany for expressing an opinion  that is contrary to the German official narrative about the Holocaust? Is the issue really about which narrative is correct? Or is there more to it than that? Let us know your thoughts on this issue – but please understand that we will not accept any commentary that finds this as an excuse to excoriate ‘The Jews’ or ‘The Germans’.

It is the view of the Publisher of Need to Know that groups do not exist except as mathematical abstractions. Only individuals exist, and, therefore, only individuals are responsible for actions. However, individuals act in accordance with their beliefs, which means that, in the final analysis, beliefs are the most important of all because they continue from one generation to another, while individuals come and go. Can this conflict between freedom-of-thought and the German lawmakers be explained in terms of beliefs? If so, what are those beliefs?] -GEG 

A Jasper, Alta. woman, infamous for denying the existence of the Holocaust, has been arrested in Germany, according to B’nai Brith Canada.

Monika Schaefer was arrested in Munich earlier this month, B’nai Brith Canada, said in a statement Thursday.

The Canadian-based Jewish rights advocacy group said it is awaiting further details on why Schaefer was arrested. It praised German authorities.

B’nai Brith officials said the group had filed complaints against Schaefer with German officials because of her “anti-Semitic incitement.”

Holocaust denial is a criminal offence in Germany. Under Germany’s Incitement to Hatred laws, those found guilty of denying the Holocaust could face a maximum of five years in prison.

“German officials should be commended for taking action against Holocaust denial,” said Michael Mostyn, chief executive officer of B’nai Brith Canada, in a statement.

“We will continue to work, even across borders, to ensure that racism and bigotry find no haven in Canada.”

CBC News has spoken with Munich police but has been unable to corroborate reports of Schaefer’s arrest, or what charges may be involved.

Schaefer was reportedly arrested during a recess in the trial of Sylvia Stolz, a lawyer on trial for Holocaust denial, according to a post on the right wing German blog deutsches-Maedchen.com.

Police commended

The Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center said it confirmed through the Bavarian State Police that Schaefer had been arrested on charges related to Holocaust denial.

The Toronto-based, non-profit human rights organization, which is committed to countering racism and anti-Semitism, commended German police for the arrest.

“Holocaust denial and revisionism continue to prevail across social media platforms in Canada and across the globe,” Avi Benlolo, chief executive of the centre, said in an emailed statement.

“Such perversion of the truth must be confronted through the use of the deterrent tools available under the law, as well as through education.”

Schaefer gained notoriety in July 2016 after publishing a video on YouTube in which she described the Holocaust as the “biggest and most pernicious and persistent lie in all of history.”

I agree with your finding that groups exist only as mathematical abstractions, and that human individuals actually do exist in fact. This has to mean that individuals are more important than groups. No group can survive without individuals, but individuals can survive, and have done so for a very long time, without groups. In my view it seems fairly clear that Germany’s dominators –those who call themselves rulers or “The Elite”– that Germany’s dominators are trying to make up for what Adolph and his followers are said to have done during the Second World War, and that they are overdoing… Read more »

Why do these political Jews constantly whine about their ancestors being persecuted? The Jewish organization JPFO has published a study showing 22 non-Jewish nations where large percentages of the population have been exterminated by tyrants. Why don’t these political Jews give equal press to the MILLIONS of non-Jews who have been murdered in the name of “statism”? My suggestion to the journalists: FOLLOW THE MONEY, and finger the perps behind all of this “racism”. Then report on the “real truth” (aka: POLITICAL AGENDA) underlying all of this.

WOW… The human race is taking huge steps backward regarding real human rights and freedom of belief and speech… and really also in Science and philosophy… 1984, Brave New World and Fahreneit 451 were prophetic visions of their authors. We are getting there fast. What is the difference of this with what is described in those books? We now have this statement:” The Toronto-based, non-profit human rights organization, which is committed to countering racism and anti-Semitism, commended German police for the arrest.” I find this statement totally hypocritical… Since when a self styled and defined “non profit organization” has the… Read more »

Freedom of speech, whether right or wrong, lie or truth, is under attack globally.
The hint, or keyword being “globally” as in socialist globalization.
No corner of the planet will be safe from extradition or courts of international law and those that stand in their way – will be crushed!

In Germany they say we have freedom of opinion. It basically means people are allowed to have any kind of absurd or colourful opinion. That wouldn´t challange the status quo anyways. But the closer you come to truth the more dangerous it gets. In short, you have a right to an opinion but not the right to state the truth.

I think the world would be a better place if more people would drill into the hard facts about this topic. Anyways it seems they are in a race against time as well.

I don’t remember where I saw this now, but I recall seeing something about the “German death camps” being used by the beginnings of the Pharmaceutical Industry for experiments on drugs. For that, they needed a large number of people that could die from their experiments without people asking questions. It seems possible that the “anti-Jew” narrative might be being used as a cover for what the pharmaceuticals were doing. If that ever became well known, there would be hell to pay, hence the extreme lengths that some will go to to enforce the narrative that it was all about… Read more »

Bernie, You have been taught nonsense and Jewish lies. They always come up with new things. The Germans have a gag order (war occupied by the Jew-USA), that’s why the liars get away with it; and that’s what the liars have set up so thew will get away with it. One of the liars purposes was to hide the fact that the Jews overthrew Russia and killed between 66 to 100 Million Russians; They had to distract from this. Then the Allies run by the Jews (Churchill, Roosevelt, Stalin, etc.)had to distract from the fact that they murdered, YES MURDERED,… Read more »

I have to disagree with at least one of the above statements: “the Germans initiated the first animal protection law in the world, not allowing unnecessary pain on experimental creatures (science research) and animal”. When you read the book “Lab 357” you find evidence that the Germans had very advanced biological warfare weapons, and that the Nuremberg criminal scientists were secretly granted assulum in the USA on the condition that they advanced the US government germ warfare program to the highest pinnacle. These German murderers escaped the death penalty in the Plum Island “Lab 357”. Plum Island is a little… Read more »

“To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.” – Voltaire

Will the masses of goyim cattle in the west ever awaken and break free of their chains? I doubt it. All they need do is to ask themselves the question: “If those work camps are what the “chosen” master race says they were, why aren’t they paying reparations to us, the descendants whose forebears liberated those camps instead of the other way round?”

Monica knew what she was doing. She did not do this blindly but defiantly, and she knows what the price is for her loving the truth and defending the truth and Germany. Truth is greater than anything, and sometimes the price is even death for it. Some people are great and some people are fearful or cowards. Monika belongs to the brave!

this argument is fact-free. first, thoughts are ephemeral, and no individual exists in social insects, birds and fish and shrimp that move as a single unit in murmurations, . no individual can survive or learn without the help of others. second, germany is still occupied, there is no german state and there are no german laws. third, holocaust denial laws cause hatred of germans. fourth, holocaust denial laws cause hatred of the scientific method, that’s why it’s (facts) absent from this essay. you’re playing by your opponent’s rules

“Excoriate” the Jews?! The Germans haven’t already been excoriated as they CONTINUE to be? One shouldn’t fail to note that not only do the Jews lead the procession against “holocaust denial”, they also head up organizations which promote Secular Humanism (atheism and Marxism) in the name of “Separation of Church and State” , while they campaign relentlessly to impose bans on the mere mention of Jesus Christ in public venues as well as to divest Western culture of all Christian religious iconography.

Best reco I can make is to watch “The Greatest Story Never Told” about Hitler and those war years. It is a little biased in spots but very informative. I think there is some other video by that identical name so keep looking if not about Hilter/Germany, should have its own website. Also watch youtube videos by a young Jewish fellow who traveled to Germany to investigate for himself. His conclusion same as this gal, showing that the shower rooms had roof vents not places for shaking the powder that supposedly formed a death gas … and other such things.… Read more »
