#World - ‘Nazi grandma’ convicted again for denying Holocaust

The so-called “Nazi grandma” has been convicted — yet again — in Germany of denying the Holocaust and sentenced to six months in the slammer, according to reports.

Ursula Haverbeck, 88, was sentenced by a Berlin court Monday for claiming during a public event in January 2016 that gas chambers in the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp “were not real.”

She also disputed the fact that 1.1 million people were killed at the camp in Nazi-occupied Poland, Agence France-Presse reported.

The court in Berlin found Haverbeck guilty after examining a short video of her speech in which she claimed that she was citing a book, not expressing her own views.
