The first ever criminal conviction in Hungary for doubting the “Holocaust” was handed down yesterday. The court of appeals affirmed the lower court decision and sentenced software developer György Nagy to one and a half years probation for questioning Jewish historians.
In addition, the court ordered Nagy to visit a “Holocaust Memorial Center” for purposes of indoctrination at least three times and describe his thoughts on the degrading visits in an essay.
Nagy and his lawyer have questioned the legal basis of the sentence claiming that criminalizing doubts about the “Holocaust” is contrary to the Basic Law. The court however stated that in certain cases to protect “human dignity”* the freedom of expression law can be overruled.
* This is beyond ridiculous, as Jews have no concept of dignity and view themselves as separate from humankind.
