Mild mannered family man walks free after serving 44 months on thought offense charges
Mannheim / Ba-Wü: As announced yesterday the dissident Germar Rudolf from JVA Mannheim prison has been released.
On October 19, 2005, Rudolf was arrested in the United States and deported to Germany. Upon arrival, he was arrested by police authorities and transferred to a prison in Stuttgart-Stammheim in Baden-Württemberg. In March 2007, the Mannheim District Court sentenced Rudolf to two years and six months in prison for inciting hatred, disparaging the dead and libel.
Some turbulent years preceded this. In the early ’90s Rudolf was doing scientific research and appraisal on the Auschwitz gas chamber complex. Since his research results stood in diametric contrast to the commercial and state ordered doctrine this led naturally to collisions with the government authority. Thus in May 1995 because of his appraisal of the gas chambers in Auschwitz, the regional court condemned Germar Rudolf to 14 months prison.
In order to escape this punishment, Rudolf fled to Spain in the spring of 1996 and from there to Great Britain, where Rudolf worked journalistically as a revisionist publishing revisionist material under the umbrella of the Belgian Foundation Vrij Historisch Onderzoek, VHO (Free Historical Research). During these activities, Rudolf acquired the Internet domain www.vho.org which he helped build into one of the largest revisionist websites in the world. In addition Rudolf created the revisionistic book publishing house Castle Hill Publishers.
Around 2004 Rudolf went to the USA where he married a US citizen and subsequently started a family, a request for asylum was denied on the basis that his application was “frivolous”. Germar Rudolf now 44 plans to return back into the USA to live with his American wife and child of four, to what extent he will become again revisionistic or politically active, is undecided……..
