German Holocaust-denying nazi Zundel dead


This video from Canada says about itself:

Ernst Zundel: “Gift to the World” (1993) – The Fifth Estate

His name has become synonymous with hate propaganda in Canada and around the world – and the Fifth Estate first told the story of Ernst Zundel back in 1993.

In the early ‘90s the neo-Nazi movement was growing in the newly unified Germany. Officials estimated there were over 40,000 extremists in the country. The resurgent movement got a lot of help from a person well known in Canada, notorious Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel. From his Toronto home Zundel became one of the biggest suppliers of propaganda to neo-Nazis in Germany. From 1993 Victor Malarek profiles the then booming career of Ernst Zundel.

In 2003 Zundel was deemed a security threat in Canada because of his links to hate groups and was deported to his native Germany in 2005. He was arrested upon his arrival and in 2007 a German court convicted him of 14 counts of incitement of racial hatred, sentencing him to five years in prison. Zundel was released from prison in 2010.

Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel dead at 78: wife

Zundel lived in Canada for decades before being extradited to Germany in 2005

A notorious Holocaust denier who lived in Canada for decades before being deported to Germany to face prosecution has died, according to a statement from his wife Ingrid Zundel.

Ernst Zundel died Sunday at home in Germany after he was found unconscious by his sister Sigrid, the statement says.

Zundel was born in Germany, but later moved to Canada, where he operated a business and published Nazi propaganda

Zundel would go on to live in Toronto’s Cabbagetown neighbourhood for several years before a Federal Court ruled in 2005 that he was a national security threat, citing his connection with white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups. The move paved the way to his extradition.

In 2007, he was convicted in Germany of 14 counts of incitement of racial hatred and received a five-year sentence, the maximum allowable under the law.​ Having received credit for time served before trial, Zundel was freed in 2010.

Sunday’s statement said Zundel reportedly died of a heart attack at the home where he was born in Germany’s mountainous Black Forest region.

As news of the death broke, Bernie Farber, former chief executive officer of the Canadian Jewish Congress, told CBC News that Zundel had denied the genocide of “six million Jewish men, women and children.”

“He brought terrible anguish to those few who survived the evil of the Shoah,” Farber said, referring to the Holocaust. “Jewish tradition demands that we do not defame the dead.”

There is no need to ‘defame’ Zundel. Telling the truth about this racist and his lies is enough.
