Ernst Zundel | Southern Poverty Law Center

German-born Ernst Zundel came to prominence in the world of Holocaust denial, or what he prefers to call historical “revisionism,” in the 1980s, when his Samisdat Publishing company began distributing propaganda like a “Did 6 Million Really Die?” pamphlet and Zundel’s own book, The Hitler We Loved and Why. By then a non-citizen resident of Canada (he moved there in 1958), Zundel’s repeated attempts at gaining citizenship in Canada were denied as he was decried by both the Canadian and German governments for his incitement of racial hatred. After several Canadian court battles over the contents of the material he distributed, he was deported in 2005 back to Germany, where he was later tried and convicted for Holocaust denial and inciting racial hatred. He was released in 2010, after serving five years.

In His Own Words “Wherever we look, we White people find ourselves besieged by peoples of other races who compete aggressively against us for jobs, food, housing, education and above all, power! The Jews are particularly adept at seizing or insinuating themselves into strategic positions in our society where they wield power far beyond the extent of their numbers.” “Our New Emblem,” White Power Report, January 1977

“Hitler was well loved and loved in return, but this relationship between the Leader and his people was not the gushy, sickly sweet effusion of an obese Jewish mother for her pimply, draft-dodging son. This was Aryan love. Strong, steady and uplifting.” The Hitler We Loved and Why, co-authored under a pseudonym with Eric Thomson

“[I]diots, morons and imbeciles [were not] possible [under Hitler] … simply because such sorry specimens were not allowed to reproduce. Hitler, the artist and designer, designed a society for loving human beings, not plastic dummies.” Quoted in the Toronto [Canada] Sun, May 23, 2003

Criminal History In 1985, Ernst Zundel was convicted in Canada of “knowingly publishing false news” in connection with his pro-Nazi propaganda. The conviction was later overturned due to procedural errors. In 1987, Zundel was retried and again convicted in Canada. He served almost two years in prison before the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that the law against publishing false news was unconstitutional.

In 2007, after being deported by the United States back to Canada and then by Canada back to his native Germany, Zundel was convicted in Germany of 14 counts of inciting racial hatred and defaming the memory of the dead. He was sentenced to the maximum of five years in prison.d

Background Ernst Zundel was born in Germany and moved to Canada in 1958. In the late 1970s, he began running Samisdat Publishing, one of the largest distributors of neo-Nazi and Holocaust denial literature in the world. He worked in Canada as a commercial artist and photographer, writing numerous tracts of neo-Nazi and Holocaust denial propaganda under the alias of Christof Friedrich, his two middle names. But in 1978, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation revealed that Friedrich was actually Zundel.

After that, Zundel ran his Samisdat Publishing under his own name and distributed not only his own works, but those of other well-known Holocaust deniers. They included Richard Harwood, author of Auschwitz, Dachau, Buchenwald: The Greatest Fraud in History, and Austin App, who wrote A Straight Look at the Third Reich and The Six Million Swindle. Zundel himself also wrote for White Power Report and Liberty Bell, two neo-Nazi publications run by George Dietz.

Zundel established the German-Jewish Historical Commission, which promoted denial of the Holocaust, and Concerned Parents of German Descent, which distributed anti-Semitic propaganda to ethnic Germans. Zundel’s interests didn’t end with neo-Nazism and Holocaust denial he also believed that UFOs were a Nazi secret weapon and published material to that effect. Zundel expanded Samisdat’s offerings to include artistic depictions of “Nazi Secret Weapons” (UFOs included), along with audiotapes ranging from Hitler’s speeches to “Music of the Third Reich.” Samisdat’s distribution was worldwide, although his focus was on the U.S., Canadian, and West German markets. Distribution of Nazi and neo-Nazi propaganda was illegal in West Germany (and still is in unified Germany), and in the early 1980s the government announced that it had seized some 200 illegal items coming into West Germany from Samisdat Publications in Toronto.

Zundel’s hate activities attracted the Canadian government’s interest, and its subsequent investigation of Zundel led to the suspension of his mailing privileges in 1981 (he then began using a Niagara Falls, N.Y., post office box). Authorities claimed that his mailings incited hatred a crime in Canada but in 1983 reinstated his postal privileges. In 1985, however, Zundel was charged criminally by Canadian authorities for violating a law against “knowingly publishing false news,” by publishing “Did Six Million Really Die?” (not written by Zundel) and Zundel’s own The West, War, and Islam. The prosecution used Holocaust survivors and historians in its case. On his side, Zundel had Holocaust deniers like Sweden’s Ditlieb Felderer, France’s Robert Faurisson and Canada’s James Keegstra testifying, even though each had been convicted for denial in their home countries. Zundel was convicted on Feb. 26, 1985, of publishing false news about the Holocaust, and was sentenced to 15 months in jail and three years of probation.

LiveLeak.com – Who Is Ernst Zundel, And Why Is He In Jail?

Below is a fascinating story of a Canadian who went to jail for…writing a book! He was then deported back to Germany and imprisioned for another 5 years. He is one of thousands of people who is trying to shed light on what really happened in Germany during the war. He makes claims (and sometimes very believable) that the American and Russian concentration camps killed more people than previously imagined. That 6 million Jews never died, and that information regarding the truth is still being suppressed today. Why would Canada jail and deport someone who had been living in the country for 40 years? It is an old article but still a good read, and something to think about.

September 23, 2003 Who Is Ernst Zundel, And Why Is He In Jail?

http://www.zundelsite.org/archive/zundel_life_in_pics/

By Mark Weber September 2003

For more than six months now, Ernst Zundel has been held without charge in solitary confinement in Canada on the pretext that he is a threat to national security. In fact, this 64-year-old German-born writer, publisher and civil rights activist is a political prisoner and a victim of great injustice.

Who is this man, and why is his case important?

Zundel was arrested at his home in Tennessee on Feb. 5, where he had been living peacefully with his wife, Ingrid Rimland, on the pretext that he missed an interview date with immigration authorities. Two weeks later he was deported to Canada, even though his wife is an American citizen.

Claiming that he is a national security threat, Canadian authorities have been holding Zundel since Feb. 19. The Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) something like the American FBI supports this charge by citing tenuous and years-old ties by Zundel to white supremacist groups. While acknowledging that he is not violent himself, CSIS also argues that material published by Zundel might cause like-minded individuals to engage in violence.

There is absolutely no basis for the security threat charge. Zundels life is an open book. He is a peaceful man with no record of violence. During the 40 years he lived in Canada, he was never convicted of a crime. In fact, he has himself been a victim of hate and violence. He survived at least three attempts on his life, including a devastating arson attack against his residence.

Jewish groups are demanding that Zundel be deported to Germany, where he faces years of imprisonment for the thought crime of denying the Holocaust. (Holocaust denial is against the law in Germany, France, Switzerland and some other European countries.)

Ernst Zundel – Interviewed by an Israeli journalist (1996 …

This video is one of the most hard-hitting interviews that Ernst Zundel ever gave to one of his political enemies !! A stunning interview addressing the centuries-old enmity between the Germans and the Jews…

The video is about 120 minutes long, with a introduction by Ernst Zundel explaining and showing just some of the MANY books in his possession (authored by Jews !) that he used in answering many of the questions presented to him in conjunction with this particular interview !!

The quality of the video is quite good (A9 / V8) when one takes into account that the master was made with the old style video cassette cameras that were affordable for that era…

After watching this incredibly well spoken and articulated interview.., then PASS IT ON in whatever way possible… !!!

!!! Truth Does Not Fear Investigation !!!

Also something VERY important to remember is.., “He who Wins the War.., also Writes the History”

Yes / No ??

“The Truth shall make you Free.., but at first.., it’ll make you Damn Mad” !!!

R v Zundel – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

R v Zundel Hearing: December 10, 1991 Judgment: August 27, 1992 Full case name Ernst Zundel v Her Majesty The Queen Citations [1992] 2 S.C.R. 731 Docket No. 21811 Ruling Zundel appeal allowed Court Membership Chief Justice: Antonio Lamer Puisne Justices: Grard La Forest, Claire L’Heureux-Dub, John Sopinka, Charles Gonthier, Peter Cory, Beverley McLachlin, William Stevenson, Frank Iacobucci Reasons given Majority McLachlin J., joined by La Forest, L’Heureux-Dub and Sopinka JJ. Dissent Cory and Iacobucci JJ., joined by Gonthier J.

R v Zundel [1992] 2 S.C.R. 731 is a landmark Supreme Court of Canada decision where the Court struck down the provision in the Criminal Code of Canada that prohibited publication of false information or news on the basis that it violated the freedom of expression provision under section 2(b) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

In 1985, Holocaust denier Ernst Zndel was charged with “spreading false news” by publishing a pamphlet entitled “Did Six Million Really Die?” in Canada, contrary to s. 181 of the Criminal Code.

Section 181 states that “[e]very one who wilfully publishes a statement, tale or news that he knows is false and causes or is likely to cause injury or mischief to a public interest is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment”.

At trial, Zundel was convicted. However, on appeal the case was sent back for a new trial due to a procedural error at trial in admitting evidence and instructing the jury. He was re-tried in 1988, and convicted again. The judgement was upheld by the Court of Appeal, and Zundel appealed to the Supreme Court.

The issue before the Supreme Court was whether s. 181 of the Code infringed “the guarantee of freedom of expression in s. 2(b) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and, if so, whether s. 181 is justifiable under s. 1 of the Charter.”

Justice Beverley McLachlin, writing for the Court, found that Zundel did violate section 181. The book was examined, and the court concluded that it “misrepresented the work of historians, misquoted witnesses, fabricated evidence, and cited non-existent authorities.” However, section 181 violated section 2(b) of the Charter. Kelsey noted that section 2(b) protects all expression of a non-violent form, and as such, the content itself is irrelevant (section 2(b) is content neutral). The protection provided by the Charter includes expression of minority beliefs even where the majority may find it false (Morais 2001). The imposition of imprisonment for expression has a severely limiting effect on freedom, beyond reason.

McLachlin further found that it could not be justified under section 1 of the Charter as the restriction on all expressions “likely to cause injury or mischief to a public interest” was far too broad.

Paul Eisen, the founder of Deir Yassin Remembered, wrote this:

Ernst Zundel is, in my view, the greatest dissident of our time.

I’d read about Ernst and I’d written about him, but it was only two years ago that I met him. He was soft-spoken, kind and gentle but every so often you could see the flash of steel. He’d just been released from prison and was engaged in rebuilding his ancestral home. It’s a peasant’s house in the Black Forest, in the heart of Germany – and it had housed his woodcutter father, his large family and the young Ernst.

Never have I seen an edifice so rooted in the land. Like Ernst himself, it seemed to grow out of the soil.

In this documentary, you will meet an entirely different Ernst Zndel — not the “hate-spewing” firebrand a poisonous mainstream media has painted him to be, but the sensitive, creative artist who spent one-tenth of his life incarcerated for his outspoken political convictions on behalf of his demonized people — and still retained his extraordinary spirit of defiance.”
