What possible purpose can this serve?

In a recent post, I asked whether all those brave folk standing up for the liberation of Palestine really believed that there could be freedom and justice for Palestinians if there was no freedom and justice for Gunther Deckert.

I was prompted to post it because, a few moments before, I had read that Gunther Deckert had just been sentenced to five months in jail because he translated from Italian into German an essay by the Italian revisionist researcher Carlo Mattogno which questioned the Holocaust narrative.

I'm glad to say I've had no experience of Germany's 'Incitement of the Masses' laws (Holocaust denial to you and me) and quite honestly, I found it all a bit hard to believe. Surely Mr Deckert must have done something worse than just translating a revisionist document into German that to merit such a sentence.

Then, some days later, I received the following exchange which does clarify things a bit. It's between a Mr William Henderson of Toronto, Canada and Georg Jürgens, Minister-Counsellor and Deputy Head of Mission to the German Embassy in Canada.

Mr Henderson wrote:

Your Excellency:

I note from an RSS feed that I subscribe to that Gunther Deckert is due to report to prison for a five month term early in the new year.

Further inquiry reveals that his crime was to translate a document from Italian into German.

It seems to me that a jail sentence for the mere translation of a document is somewhat ridiculous.

Could you please advise me what harm a simple document could do and why the matter would even be of any interest to the German authorities?


William E. Henderson
And Mr Jurgens replied:
Dear Mr Henderson,

It exceeds the capacity of this Embassy to find out exactly what the notorious neo-nazi Deckert did this time.

To get an idea about this man you might want to check him out on Wikipedia:

Just let me add that if you translate foreign documents to deny the Holocaust or to incite racial hatred you are punishable under German law.

Kind regards,
Georg Jürgens
Minister-Counsellor and Deputy Head of Mission
Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany
 So, it's true.  "If you translate foreign documents to deny the Holocaust or to incite racial hatred you are punishable under German law."

Two questions remain:

1. Why is questioning the Holocaust "incitement to racial hatred"?

2. In this globalised, internet age, when national boundaries mean nothing and English reigns supreme, what possible purpose can this serve other than to further cow a terrified population?


  1. "Why is questioning the Holocaust "incitememt to racial hatred"?"

    Because you might discover "some lies", by "some people" which might make you a "little upset" against them.

    I am worried that Zionists might push to introduce "Love laws" that forces people to love criminals, liars and mass-murderers.

    1. Ha ha, yes. This step only seems logical..

      Best wishes,

    2. When will the incitement of hatred against the Germans become punishable?
      Half of the world would have to go to prison, unfortunately lots of brainwashed Germans, too.

    3. it is sad to see how the Germans freak out when told there were no death gas chambers and around 250,000,000 Jews perish for all reasons during their war period

  2. the only thing which gives this tiny faction the global power it exerts over free men is the Central/Fractionalized Banking System. Remove it from all nations and yo uwill remove an enormous part of it's power to enlsave/corrupt governments/cause wars.

  3. Since the Jews are obviously totally in charge of EVERYTHING, politics, entertainment, academkics,art, literature, the Nobel Prize Committee, journalism etc this type of law in Germany is de rigeuer. Don´t worry, it will be exported to ALL countries since ALL countries are governmed by politicians who have sold their soul to the devil long ago. Only when the WHOLE shebang explodes will there be any meaningful change, hopefully accompanied by many of the guilty adorning trees and lampposts. Gerry Frederics

  4. Dear Paul

    With the indefatigable industry that is typical of you, the case of Mr. Deckert is being publicized. This is refreshing compared to the apathetic reaction of some of his own revisionist colleagues.

    This self-effacing, non-complaining man would be reporting to prison next month in near total obscurity were it not for my Hoffman Wire column and your follow-up.

    I was amused to see that the German embassy refers you to Wikipedia for accurate information on the “notorious neo-Nazi”!

    Dealing with the government of Germany is tantamount to dealing with the Israeli government. No fairness can be expected. Because western liberals make little or nothing of the imprisonment of persons who cast doubt on the sacred relics of the religion of Holocaustianity, the Germans get away with their inquisition. It costs them nothing in terms of international respect or prestige. The queen of chutzpagh, Angela Merkel, regularly lectures Muslims on the need for them to permit more freedom of expression! Hypocrisy is too small a word to encompass her double-standard.

    Deckert is a damned person; a less than human person in the eyes of his self-righteous detractors; and his translations, as the German embassy itself asserts, merit prison. This Kafkaesque datum does not trouble the New York Times or Fox News; or the United Nations or the European Union.

    1. Beautifully put, michael. Thank you.

  5. Thanks to Paul Eisen, for this nice short article that tells so much. I used it to present the case of Günter Deckert once more in a Danish translation.

    Like Mr. Hoffman said, Mr. Deckert is still a perfect gentleman even after decades of persecution and vilification. I had the pleasure to hear him speak some years ago, where we were being informed about some of the ridiculous situations in the German Gulag. Anybody who takes the idea of democracy and freedom of speech serious, should be concerned about these travesties of justice in the central European occupied zone since the end of WWII, which is the known as the Federal Republic of Germany, even if Mr. Deckert were the incarnation of Hitler himself. Justice for Loke as well as for Thor, as we say in Denmark.

    Talking about double standards; here in Denmark the Royal Danish Library has allowed the Turkish Embassy to setup a "counter exhibition" on its premises, where currently an exhibition about the Armenian Holocaust is open to the public. When asked in an interview, the museum director who had allowed and defended the Turkish "holocaust-denial" exhibition, titled: "The so called Armenian Genocide", said he would never have allowed a "neo-nazi" revisionist exhibition.

    Read a transscript of the tv interview Free speech rules in Denmark? Royal Danish Library offers public platform to holocaust deniers

  6. question is; what honest soul would want to hinder/limit an open,transparent investigation of a crime? I read "everyone's entitled to their own opinion...nobody is entitled to their own facts". Also, "he who does not want all the truth deserves none of the truth". I agree. It would seem to me that only those who are criminals perpetrating a crime or... those who benefit directly (or indirectly) from it would NOT want the truth in fact to be revealed. This act of imprisoning a man for simply asking questions and challenging a paradigm seems at the very least an attack on everyone's freedom of honest inquiry! which should never be allowed to happen in a age where information is so easily available to be shared. Thank you for exposing this crime and assault on all of humanities intellectual and emotional well being!

  7. How does one ‘incite racial hatred’ by translating documents that suggest millions of people were not murdered? Wouldn’t that be ‘good’ news? Isn’t accusing Germans of being homicidal mass murders and denying them an opportunity to examine the evidence and offer a defense ‘hatred’?

  8. The one thing that i remember the most clearly over the past 40 years of my school days at Brandeis University in 1970's are my student adviser's words that when he was growing up that his grand parents and parents used the term "‘goyishe kup,’" meaning that the "Non-Jews are Stupid"

    Later in life I learned that the exact translation of "GOYISHE KUP" means that the "Cattle are STUPID"..

    I remember him recalling whatt his father told him when he was growing up in Eastern Europe. One of them being that when his father was in high school he and a group of friends would skip school early on Fridays and go over to his friend's father's butcher shop. That they would buy at cost any cows , that had not been butchered by the end of the day on Friday before the start of shabat . They would take the cow home and wash it and then the boys would procede to "beat the udders of the cows so that they would swell up and turn pink" so as to sell them to the "GOYISHE KUP" as milk producing cows.

    The part that I remember him asking me if the East Europeans are so naive, so gullible and so stupid to buy old "non milk producing cows" from a bunch of young Jewish Boys.

    So thinking of it now I agree with the Jewish saying that the "GOYISHE KUP" are indeed" Stupid" as they believe that a Bunch of Arab Moslem Kids who were not able to Fly a Cessna Airplane took it upon themselves to FLY a Jumbo 747 and outwitted the US Militaryand Civilian authorities. The "Jewish Lightning Insurance Scam" of the 1960's is still alive and well has been put to good use by Larry Silverstein in putting 15 million down and comming out with 7 billion dollars for buidings that no one wanted to buy because it would have cost a billion dollars to remove the asbestos from. Then on top of that the people in America actually believe that they actually decide who is elected President or for that that actual VOTE is really counted and makes a difference in deciding who represents them in the White House and congress.

    Yeh I agree that the AmericanNon-Jews are indeed American "GOYISHE KUP" or "STUPID CATTLE"!

    1. If they read the letter that God sent to us they would not be so stupid.
