A prominent German neo-Nazi dubbed the 'Nazi grandma' by German media has again been convicted of Holocaust denial and sentenced to eight months in prison.
The Detmold state court in Germany announced on Friday that 87-year-old Ursula Haverbeck plans to appeal the decision.
Haverbeck wrote a letter in February to the mayor of Detmold when a former Auschwitz guard was going on trial there, claiming the notorious Nazi death camp was only a labour camp and called survivors 'alleged witnesses.'
Haverbeck was most recently convicted of Holocaust denial in 2015 for a similar statement in an interview outside the trial of a former Auschwitz guard in Lueneburg.
She was sentenced to 10 months imprisonment in that case but remains free as her appeal is heard.
