German lawyer of Holocaust denier sentenced to 3.5 years in prison

Published: 01.15.08, 00:14 / Israel News

The former lawyer for a well-known Holocaust denier was convicted of incitement in Germany on Monday for denying the genocide herself and sentenced to three and a half years in prison. Sylvia Stolz was also banned by the court from practicing law for five years.


"Stolz has a basic reflex to make far-right statements," Judge Rolf Glenz said in handing down the sentence. During the trial, Stolz called the Holocaust "the biggest lie in world history." Stolz was also convicted of charges of disparaging the country and its symbols and insulting the court. Stolz represented Ernst Zundel in his first trial in Germany, which collapsed after she was banned from the proceedings on grounds she was trying to sabotage them. (AP)
