accused is charged, together with his wife Dr
Ingrid R [Rimland] who is being
prosecuted [verfolgt: persecuted]
separately with having as the most active, i.e. the
leading, so-called "revisionist" from Toronto,
Canada and Pigeon Forge, USA, spread Nazi and
anti-Semitic propaganda most recently in February
2003, via the Internet Homepage [sic]
for which he is responsible and in written
publications, in particular in the Germanic
Circulars written and mailed by him, worldwide, and
in Germany too.
He is alleged to have intended to relieve
National Socialism of the stigma of the murder of
the Jews, in his messages and writings, in
pseudo-scientific manner, frequently also via
hyperlinks in the Internet, as well as denying the
fate of the extermination of the Jews that was
planned by the National Socialist potentates and to
have argued to this end that the mass destruction
etc., is an invention of the Jews and serves to
oppress and blackmail the German People.
Over about twenty pages of the indictment are
reproduced individual passages from the "Zündelsite"
from 2003, from the accused's manuscript, "His
Struggle for Germany," published in 1999, and from
the "Germania Circulars" from 2000 to 2003, which
among others read as follows:
- "Nobody denies the existence of the
concentration camps. They were detention centers
with not nearly as many inmates as is generally
claimed. They were not extermination camps. ...
It is a sad truth that tens of thousands of
people of various nationalities died in the
German camps, primarily through diseases.
- "The so-called four million [killed in
Auschwitz], revised to 1.5 millions, have
shriveled to 74,000 proven deaths... Something
over 30,000 Jews died at Auschwitz... primarily
through illnesses and overcrowding."
- "Or is it not more a matter of continuing to
hold the Germans enslaved in ceaseless mental,
political and economic and financial bondage? To
soften them up for ever newer, scarcely
concealed blackmail attempts, that have already
extracted over 100 billion marks for the
Holocaust lobbyists and the members of their
race. ... The abuse of Germany and the Germans
- "One vital point which most people don't
know that that the idea, the concept and even
the planning for the Nuremberg Trials have come
from purely Jewish brains."
- "The Second World War was forced upon
Germany! Hitler wanted no war, he needed peace
for his social construction program."
The Holocaust is termed a monster lie, and
"although he was a racist and enemy of the Jews,
Hitler never ordered or tolerated that anybody was
killed because of his race of religion."
Testimonies about gas chambers and gas trucks,
"which in reality never existed," are stated to
have been obtained by "coerced confessions". Israel
is described as a "Zionist state of bandits and
murderers", in which "we are confronted with ideas
thousands of years old and the secrets of
occultist, demoniacal people who regarded the
Antichrist as their Messiah." The Holocaust had
been "formally run up out of nothing thanks to a
devilishly cunning propaganda," Israel had become
the "sanctuary of a fiendish global gangster
people, a harebrained creation, an abortion born of
Finally, the indictment quotes from a Germania
circular dated January 2003 as follows:
- "While we fought so tenaciously for the
truth about the Holocaust, we naturally also
want to restore Germany's honor and bequeath to
our descendants an honorable, clean image of the
fighting by the German armed forces and the
- "Only under Hitler did people at government
level, in Germany and later in the other
European countries allied with Germany, tackle
the global Jewish conspiracy head on."
conclusion of the war in 1945 is described as a
"Victory of the Jews over Germany," and as for
Adolf Hitler we read:
"In this historic epoch, there will
certainly never again in the foreseeable future
be an internal liberation like that achieved by
Adolf Hitler ... or another people's tribune ...
In the final analysis, after all is said and
done, we are fighting quite simply just for the
survival of our own species, our own race, our
ALTOGETHER the public prosecutor charges the
accused in legal terms with violations of Sections
§§ 130, 185, 189 of the German Penal
Code. Pursuant to these, those who inter
alia incite hatred against sections of the
public in a manner conducive
to causing a breach of the peace, will be
punished, as will those who attack the human
worthiness of sections of the public, insofar as he
insults them, brings them into contempt with malice
aforethought, or defames them. Further violations
of the penal code are the public approval, denial,
or minimizing of any action committed under the
National Socialist regime, insofar as this is
conducive to causing a breach of the peace.
accused was expelled from Canada (right) in
February 2005 as persona non grata, and has
been held since March 1, 1945 [eight months: 33
weeks] in investigative custody. The accused is
stated to have denied responsibility for the
quotations contained in the indictment, in the
course of the investigative proceedings and
elsewhere. The defense raises doubts as to the
constitutionality of § 130 of the German Penal
The investigations of the Mannheim Public
Prosecutor began around 1996. The responsibility of
the Mannheim public prosecutor arises from the fact
that the "Zundelsite" website can also be
downloaded from the Internet in Mannheim; from
which fact the applicability of the Mannheim
District Court is also derived.
