Horst Mahler: Cry for Help!

In 1946 the Allied Military Tribunal at Nuremberg declared itself to be an instrument of “a continuation of the war effort of the Allied nations” against Germany – IMT, XIX, p. 397.
To this day courts in Germany are bound by any of the tribunal’s statements, as codified in the 4+2 treaties of 1990, and cannot challenge their validity. However, this makes a mockery of Germany’s Basic Law (Grundgesetz) that has enshrined “freedom of opinion” as one of its pillars – Section 5.
And so in order to circumvent Section 5 of the Basic Law, Section 130 of the Criminal Law (Strafgesetzbuch) was enacted, which enables authorities to put on trial anybody who disputes the holocaust hypothesis. This “specific Holocaust law” also offends against the UN’s Universal Declaration Of Human Rights as well as the Declaration of the United Nations Council for Human Rights 2011, which states that, “publication of opinions about historical facts are not to be penalized”, under any circumstances. Thus the German courts still act in “continuation of the war effort of the Allied nations” of World War 2.

Lawyer Horst Mahler was convicted to 10 years and five months in prison for the non-violent assertion of an historical thesis, thereby allegedly violating §130 on three counts.
Horst Mahler is 79 years old and has been imprisoned since 2009. Without a doubt Horst Mahler certainly belongs to Germany’s most educated and most powerful contemporary thinkers and philosophers.
It is owing to his intellect, his wealth of ideas and his courage that he was considered to be a danger to the political establishment and that he needed to be locked away for the rest of his life.
In contrast the imprisoned Chinese dissident, Liu Xiaobo, has been awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace!


During his time in prison Horst Mahler’s health was so badly neglected by the prison authorities that he had to be placed in intensive medical care where it was decided that his left leg was to be amputated. This has done nothing to improve his position however. At this point his health has now reached such a critical state that the authorities are preparing for his imminent death by making plans to suppress any resulting demonstrations by the German people.
It must be noted that Horst Mahler had applied for release on parole after completing two thirds of the sentence, which is regularly granted to any criminal after completion of half of their sentence.
Horst Mahler is financially destitute and cannot afford a lawyer to take his action into court.
However he did succeed in publishing a cry for help from prison:

Dear friends,
For a long time I hesitated asking for help. But now my life is at stake.
My left leg has been amputated and the doctors struggle to avoid further losses.
Eventually one lawyer agreed to run my defence in court. However, since I am financially ruined, I cannot pay him.
Furthermore, my application for release on parole has to be funded.

In addition, upon my release from prison a certain transformation of my home would be necessary to allow for the life of a disabled.

Please help! Many thanks in advance!


Horst Mahler is still in serious danger. We ask you to make a sacrifice for his rescue from certain death.
Please use any possible means to inform media, authorities and so-called human right organizations, and please forward this message to all of your contacts.

Rudolf Hess: His last words before final jugdment

His last words before the IMT:

Those statements which my defense counsel made in my name before the High Tribunal I let rest because of the sentence, and for history and for my people. That is the only thing which counts with me. I am not defending myself against my accusers, whom I deny the right to accuse me and my fellow countrymen. I will not deal with accusations which concern things which are purely German matters and therefore are of no concern to foreigners. I am not protesting against statements which are directed at attacking my honour or the honour of the German people. I consider such accusations made against me by the enemy as a sign of honour.

It was my pleasure that many years of my life were spent in working under the greatest son which my people produced in its history of 1,000 years. Even if I could, I would not want to expunge this period of time from my life. I am happy to know that I have done my duty to my country and my people, and my duty as a German, as a National Socialist, and as a loyal follower of my Führer. I do not regret anything.

If I were once more at the beginning, I should act once more the way I did act, even if I knew that at the end I should meet death on a bonfire. No matter what human beings might do, some day I shall be before the judgment seat of the Almighty. I shall be responsible to him, and I know he will call me innocent.
