Henry Hafenmayer – champion of German freedom – dies aged 48

Henry Hafenmayer, 1972-2021

One of the foremost champions of free historical research and discussion – Henry Hafenmayer – died last Wednesday (11th August) in southern Germany, aged 48.

A former train driver who was dismissed for his political opinions, Henry became a prominent public champion of German historical revisionists, in a country where one can be jailed for questioning the official version of ‘Holocaust’ history. He was best known for his website Ende der Lüge (‘End of the Lie’) and associated social media accounts.

In this task he was especially closely associated with four jailed revisionists: former leftist lawyer and philosopher Horst Mahler (85); publisher and ecologist Ursula Haverbeck (92); lawyer Sylvia Stolz, first jailed for defending the late Ernst Zündel; and filmmaker / video blogger Alfred Schaefer. All four have served long prison sentences, and Mr Schaefer is still in jail.

Henry himself faced several criminal charges, and until his untimely death was very much in the sights of occupied Germany’s political and judicial system.

He was a regular and convivial guest at political and social gatherings in Germany with comrades including H&D‘s assistant editor Peter Rushton. We are shocked and saddened at losing this greatly valued friend, but are confident in the knowledge that Henry’s courage, honour and loyalty will not be in vain. Henry Hafenmayer’s name will live on in the annals of a future, better Europe.

During several months of serious illness this year, Henry was treated at clinics in Germany and Switzerland. As reported by our friends at Recht und Wahrheit, a close comrade had to pick up the entire bill for this treatment and for Henry’s funeral costs, so H&D encourages readers worldwide to donate if they possibly can to help defray these costs.

Horst Mahler has given Lady Renouf permission to send us this English translation of his tribute. Horst writes:

It is an honorary title they give us when they call us “Nazis”. That was what Henry Hafenmayer had understood. He lived his life so that he might earn this title through action. He did not fear death, and when he made up his mind to call the recognized enemy of the peoples by its name, he knew what to expect. Under the banner “End of the lie!” he finally moved from defence to attack and thus became a role model for those German youth who still want to be German. He held out when his well-paid job as a train driver was terminated. His answer was to multiply his efforts to make the invisible enemy visible. He laboriously scanned the Talmud (in twelve bulky volumes published in German by the official Jewish publishing house Jüdische Verlag) and placed it in the global electronic network. [Three sentences deleted and part of postscript deleted due to UK race laws.] With his web blog “The End of the Lie” lobbing intellectual grenades at the emplacements of the anti-German front in his own country, he has branded the Big Lie as an attempted genocide. He was one of the first to give the New National Socialism (NNS) a face. That makes him unforgettable. Hail Henry Hafenmayer!

Down with the Pack of Liars!

Lady Michèle Renouf and the ‘Alternative for Britain’ Bitchute channel today posted this story in Commemoration of Richard Edmonds (1943-2020), our legendary English nationalist.

Like legendary German attorney Manfred Roeder (1929-2014); and the Berlin attorney Wolfram Nahrath (1962- ) ; Richard Edmonds stood lifelong for British/German/Russian real history, honourable conduct, and mutual justice.

The title “Down With the Pack of Liars” cites the great German poet Friedrich von Schiller (1759-1805).
All four European men (the poet, the two lawyers, the orator) have Schiller’s call for “manly character” (Virtus) in common.

The trilogy is introduced by the oratory prize-winning voice of Richard Edmonds. He reads the Schiller poem which is the keynote to the late Manfred Roeder’s guardianship of authentic German heritage and cultural pride fostered in his historic educational centre at Haus Richberg.

Roeder a political prisoner of conscience (sentenced for 13 years and in this film speaks before going to jail again!) declares:
“Germany must remain our land”; and declares Haus Richberg: “the centre of the promotion and preservation of the German spirit”.

Attorney Roeder briefly defended the legendary peace-broker Rudolf Hess when silenced for life in solitary imprisonment at Spandau.

The trilogy continues with this link to a film (of 7 mins duration): https://www.bitchute.com/video/2DJAKeitHyxM/

The viewer is welcomed through the renovated exterior into the handsome hall of Haus Richberg where we meet the Berlin attorney Wolfram Nahrath. He specialises in defending political cases for Bishop Richard Williamson, Attorney Horst Mahler, the Schaefer siblings, Ursula Haverbeck, and winning in the extraordinary Volksverhetzung case of Lady Michèle Renouf.

The trilogy concludes with this second link to Part 3 (duration 47 mins): https://www.bitchute.com/video/5PkNT8mfue6f/

Here we share RA Wolfram Nahrath at breakfast with host and friends at Haus Richberg. He discusses why today’s German people are deprived of their democratic choice and sovereignty. German citizens (still under wartime Allied occupation) cannot choose to disallow the sending of their soldiers (as if American mercenaries) into “peace-keeping” wars which then render Germans as retaliatory sitting targets.

The late Richard Edmonds likewise saw how the British postwar – akin to the wartime policy-making “pack of liars” – put the nation’s indigenous people at risk of reprisals for “peace-keeping” war “missions”.

This “pack of liars” put all European nations at risk of conquest by mass migrating aliens. Inevitably these aliens will out-number the rooted citizens who have never been democratically consulted! Inevitably, all such conquered European nations will succumb to native European “species extinction”.

Neither the host country nor the “developing” nation gains from the artificially induced mass onslaught of uprooted aliens who having abandoned their needy homeland, then collude to racially abuse the host nation with gross ingratitude.

“Allies = All Liars” – Long Live the catch-cry of Richard Edmonds!

H&D’s Peter Rushton interviewed on ‘The Political Cesspool’

Political Cesspool host James Edwards (above right) with Dr David Duke

On Saturday night H&D‘s assistant editor Peter Rushton was interviewed by James Edwards and Keith Alexander for their excellent radio show The Political Cesspool. This show has been running since 2004 and previous guests have included presidential candidate and syndicated columnist Pat Buchanan; political philosopher and former Croatian diplomat Tom Sunic; and American Renaissance founder Jared Taylor.

Saturday’s show also featured Canadian free speech campaigner Paul Fromm, a longstanding friend of H&D, and French Canadian journalist Rémi Tremblay.

The Political Cesspool is devoting its broadcasts this month to a “March Around the World!” season featuring international guests. The season opened on March 7th with another two old friends of H&D – barrister Adrian Davies and retired Australian law professor Drew Fraser.

Patriotic Alternative purged from Facebook and Instagram

In the latest social media crackdown on racial nationalists, Facebook and Instagram today closed accounts belonging to Patriotic Alternative and its leaders Mark Collett and Laura Towler.

They remain active on other platforms and their website remains active at www.patrioticalternative.org.uk

No reason or warning was given by Facebook or Instagram, and needless to say neither Mr Collett nor Ms Towler are charged with any criminal offence.

By coincidence a Labour councillor who was twice a Leeds City Council candidate against Mark Collett appeared in court yesterday charged with several offences including:

  • attempting to rape a girl under 16 years of age between October 4, 1981, and October 4, 1982;
  • two charges of indecent assault on a girl under the age of 14, between October 4, 1980, and October 4, 1982.

Ron Grahame was suspended from the Labour Party last month pending the outcome of his trial. Cllr Grahame was twice a Labour candidate against Mark Collett in Leeds City Council elections in 2004 and 2007.

Readers will appreciate that for legal reasons we cannot make any comment about Cllr Grahame’s trial, nor do we have the slightest knowledge of the circumstances of his alleged offences.

Ursula Haverbeck again given jail sentence at 92

Ursula Haverbeck (above left) with fellow campaigner Dr Rigolf Hennig and Lady Michèle Renouf, who was recently acquitted of Volksverhetzung charges.

The indefatigable campaigner for truth and justice Ursula Haverbeck – who celebrated her 92nd birthday on November 8th – was yet again sentenced by a German court last Friday, under the Federal Republic’s notorious Volksverhetzung law that prohibits discussion of certain historical subjects.
Frau Haverbeck, a writer and publisher, for many years ran the educational institute Collegium Humanum with her late husband Werner Haverbeck (1909-1999). The Collegium hosted prominent intellectuals, including the pioneering ecological author and activist Ernst Friedrich Schumacher.

In 2004 Ursula Haverbeck was fined for Volksverhetzung, and has been convicted several times for further offences, in particular for “denying” that the Auschwitz internment camp was used for the homicidal gassing of Jews. In reality many of her offences consisted simply of asking precise questions of a series of German and Jewish officials – seeking to pin down the exact allegations that are made against wartime German authorities.

Instead of answering these questions in the normal manner, these officials chose to drag Ursula Haverbeck into court, where she has several times been sentenced to prison terms. From May 2018 until last month she was imprisoned in Bielefeld, in the north-west German state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

Just a month later, another jail sentence – this time 12 months, though appeals will follow. Ursula Haverbeck already has pending appeals against two sentences (one of ten months, the other six) for similar ‘crimes’. The ‘offence’ for which she was sentenced last Friday was a YouTube video interview with former schoolteacher Nikolai Nerling, known as Der Volkslehrer (“People’s Teacher”).

Monika and Alfred Schaefer

Many Germans are prosecuted every year for Volksverhetzung. The highest profile prisoner still incarcerated is the German-Canadian Alfred Schaefer, whose sister Monika was also imprisoned for her part in ‘Holocaust denial’ videos. No-one has yet calculated how much the Federal Republic spends on detection and prosecution of such ‘crimes’. 84-year-old attorney and author Horst Mahler was imprisoned until last month despite having had both legs amputated during his sentence.

Retired Supreme Court judges Winfried Hassemer and Wolfgang Hoffmann-Riem are among those who have called for the repeal of this monstrous debate-denying law.

Thought criminals released from jail sentences in Germany

Today the German attorney Sylvia Stolz was due for release having served an 18 month prison sentence in Germany for the ‘crime’ of having made a speech about German history and the principles underlying the search for historical truth.

(above left to right) Sylvia Stolz at the Schaefer trial in Munich in 2018 with Wolfram Nahrath (attorney for Monika Schaefer and later for Lady Renouf); Frank Miksch (attorney for Alfred Schaefer); Alfred Schaefer; and Lady Michèle Renouf.

First jailed in 2008 (and banned from legal practice) for her words in defence of German-Canadian publisher Ernst Zündel, Sylvia Stolz spoke at a conference of the Anti-Censorship Coalition, held in the Swiss town of Chur in 2012.

Background on this story is at the blog recently set up by H&D Assistant Editor Peter Rushton to report on the trial of Lady Michèle Renouf on similar charges of volksverhetzung – the German equivalent of our race laws, which unlike our law criminalises historical and scientific research into the alleged ‘holocaust’ of European Jewry during the Second World War.

Horst Mahler and Ursula Haverbeck celebrate their release from German jails last week

The release of Sylvia Stolz follows last week’s release of two of Germany’s veteran campaigners for historical truth and justice, 84-year-old Horst Mahler and 92-year-old Ursula Haverbeck.

The outside world finds it incredible that people of this age should be jailed for anything – still more incredible that their ‘crimes’ were political: daring to question orthodox versions of mid-20th century European history.

Horst Mahler had been prosecuted for several political offences since 2003, and had been in a Brandenburg prison since June 2017, having earlier been jailed from 2009 to 2015. During his sentence he has suffered increasing ill health including the amputation of both legs.

Ursula Haverbeck had been imprisoned for two and a half years since May 2018 and has faced repeated trials after daring to ask questions of the German authorities about what she terms “the biggest and most persistent lie in history” – the alleged ‘holocaust’ of European Jewry.

Alfred Schaefer remains incarcerated for similar offences following his conviction in 2018 for having posted online videos ‘denying the Holocaust’.

The outside world continues to wonder what sort of historical truth gets turned into an unchallengeable theological dogma and has to be defended by an edifice of laws criminalising those who dare challenge it.

Dresden Court Victory! Lady Michèle Renouf Acquitted

Attorney Wolfram Nahrath and his client Lady Michèle Renouf celebrate victory

In a last minute reversal, German prosecutors and a district court judge in Dresden have ended their criminal case against Lady Michèle Renouf, terminating a 32-month process, days before it was to come to trial.

Having arrested and charged Lady Renouf in 2018 immediately after her impromptu speech at a commemoration in Dresden, German prosecutors opened proceedings a year later under Germany’s notorious §130 Volksverhetzung law alleging “public incitement”, but the case has now ended without Lady Renouf being found guilty of any offence. (She has had to pay only a modest fee for the costs of a translator.)

“This decision was extraordinary – almost sensational”, says Wolfram Nahrath (Lady Renouf’s German attorney) who points out that such an ACQUITTAL of the charges in a ‘Holocaust’-related trial is a first in Germany. The German authorities did not want to take the risk of putting Lady Renouf on trial, given her background and the German constitutional issues that would inevitably be highlighted.

The §130 Volksverhetzung law has been used to jail German scientists, authors and even lawyers in recent years. ‘Holocaust’-related offences of ‘public incitement’ almost inevitably lead to long prison sentences.

Yet the unique circumstances of Lady Renouf and her 2018 Dresden speech led prosecutors to withdraw.

H&D, the Renouf trial blog and related social media accounts will examine the extraordinary fabric of the Renouf case and explain why the German state chose to throw in the towel.

French author jailed in latest opinion crime crackdown

The French author Hervé Ryssen – pen name of 53-year-old Sorbonne graduate Hervé Lalin – has been jailed near Paris for the ‘crime’ of expressing opinions deemed ‘anti-semitic’.

Among his ‘crimes’ was publication of a book in 2018 entitled (in English translation) Understanding the Jews, Understanding Anti-Semitism, which the court found to have ‘denied the Holocaust’. This and several of M. Ryssen’s other books have been translated into English by Carlos Porter and are available via The Barnes Review.

Hervé Ryssen

On 18th September the Paris court ordered that Hervé Ryssen must begin serving a 19 month jail sentence for this crime of questioning orthodox versions of mid-20th century history. He will be brought from his cell to the ’17th correctional chamber’ at Porte de Clichy, Paris, for a new trial at 1.30 pm on 2nd December 2020.

Jean-Marie Le Pen, founder of the French National Front and former presidential candidate, has denounced the sentence.

English translations of several books by Hervé Ryssen are available from The Barnes Reviewclick above for link

This week veteran British nationalist and National Front Directorate member Richard Edmonds, together with H&D assistant editor Peter Rushton, wrote to Mr Ryssen/Lalin in prison.

An English translation of the letter appears below.

From Richard Edmonds, …Sutton, Surrey, Angleterre. Dated 23. September 2020.

To Herve Ryssen-Lalin,
Maison d’Arret de Fleury-Merogis, prisoner number 459-091, 7 Avenue des Peupliers, F-91 700, Fleury-Merogis, France.

Dear Herve Ryssen-Lalin,

Everybody is talking about your incarceration and everybody is condemning it…the nationalist weekly news-paper, RIVAROL, the founder of the Front National, Jean -Marie Le Pen and all the friends of Free Speech.

At this very moment the trial is taking place in Paris of the murderers who attacked the offices of the (vile) satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, and the President of France, Macron, has just stated that in France people have the right to blaspheme, meaning that the vile blasphemies of Charlie Hebdo are O.K.

[Note for British readers: a few years back, the front cover of the “satirical” French magazine showed a cartoon of the Holy Ghost buggering Jesus Christ who in turn was busy buggering His father, God Almighty; this filth all deemed O.K. by the French Establishment.]

Former Prime Minister Theresa May, alongside Sir Eric Pickles (chairman of Conservative Friends of Israel) declares “I am a Jew”, in a campaign inspired by supporters of Charlie Hebdo

Macron went on to boast that in France there was Freedom of Speech…but that clearly does not include the freedom to discuss details of the Second World War, otherwise you, Monsieur Ryssen-Lalin, would not find yourself locked up in this prison and for many months to come. What to say ? We find ourselves in a hypocritical and tyrannical world.

One can only add that you find yourself in the company of first class persons: At this very time the very brave German woman, Ursula Haverbeck aged 91 years finds herself locked up in a German prison up for the “crime” of expressing her non-violent opinions regarding details of the Second World War: as does the German Revisionist Horst Mahler, aged 84, and the German defence lawyer, Frau Sylvia Stolz, both incarcerated for expressing their non-violent opinions on events that took place more than seventy years ago. I note that the French Revisionist, Vincent Reynouard was locked up in this same prison; he wrote a book on his experiences in Fleury-Merogis prison.

Sincerely, Richard Edmonds and Peter Rushton.

UPDATE: Defenders of traditional European values and liberties have begun demonstrations of support for Hervé Ryssen at various sites across the French capital.

Free Hervé Ryssen!

Footballer and ‘rapper’ find out whose lives really matter

Tom Pope (above left) scoring for Port Vale against Manchester City in January 2020

Footballer Tom Pope has been banned for six matches by the Football Association – not for any offence committed on the field, nor for misuse of drugs, nor for anything remotely criminal.

His offence was to post something deemed ‘anti-semitic’ on Twitter.

Readers should understand that Tom Pope is not one of the multi-millionaire class of Premier League footballers. He has made his career at humbler levels of the English game, with 274 appearances for his present club Port Vale, in League Two – the old Fourth Division – scoring 90 goals and three times voted Port Vale’s Player of the Year.

Tom Pope is a long way from being a ‘famous’ footballer, but he has a cult following within a tiny subculture of the game – mainly among Port Vale fans, who are not numerous.

In January this year Tom Pope scored in one of Port Vale’s few ‘glamorous’ matches, an FA Cup tie against England’s wealthiest club Manchester City, who predictably won 4-1.

A jocular Twitter exchange after the match led one fan to ask him to “predict the World War III result”, to which Pope replied: “We invade Iran then Cuba then North Korea then the Rothchilds (sic) are crowned champions of every bank on the planet.”

Tom Pope’s offending ‘tweet’ for which he has now been fined and banned by the English Football Association.

The circumstances (and the typing error) showed that this was semi-jocular banter rather than premeditated ‘anti-semitism’, and indeed nothing about Jews or Judaism was mentioned.

However the thought police were soon on the case. This week an FA disciplinary panel convicted Pope of an “aggravated breach” of FA Rule E3 – “bringing the game into disrepute”.

One “aggravating” factor was that Pope had failed to accept that his post was “anti-semitic”. In his defence he had told the panel that he had watched hundreds of videos about 9/11. “He explained that he found the videos convincing in predicting the invasions of four countries – Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Sudan. He believed, based on those videos, that the Rothschild banking business had funded the invasions of those eight countries so as to be able to take over their banks.”

Though the FA has never claimed that Pope held “anti-semitic beliefs”, its judgment argued that “the ordinary reasonable person knows very well that the Rothschild family have been used for centuries as a synecdoche for the Jewish people – maligning the family in discourse in order to malign all Jewish people.”

They added: “It is of particular concern that even now Mr Pope does not acknowledge the antisemitic message that is conveyed by the Statement. It is also of concern that he has not seriously questioned the conspiracy theories that he has allowed to inform his views.”

Consequently in addition to his six-game ban Pope was fined £3,500 and ordered to complete an “education course” – i.e. at the age of almost 35 he is being forced to undergo a brainwashing course in establishment definitions of ‘antisemitism’.

In a now-deleted ‘tweet’, Jeremy Corbyn thanked ‘Wiley’ for supporting Labour during last year’s election campaign.

Also in the news this week for Twitter ‘anti-semitism’ is the rapper known as Wiley (real name Richard Cowie), whose art will be little-known to H&D readers but who is “considered a key figure in London’s grime music scene”.

This acclaimed “Godfather of Grime” was awarded an MBE for his “services to music” in 2018 – perhaps a desperate effort by Theresa May’s Conservative government to win some credibility among young urban blacks and their fellow-travellers – though he endorsed Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party in last year’s election.

During recent weeks ‘Wiley’ has made several posts to his now-suspended social media accounts, comparing Jews to the Ku Klux Klan (on the basis that both Jews and the KKK supposedly exploit blacks), and calling Jews “cowards” and “snakes”. So far as one can make out, his politics seem to be a version of the usual ‘victim game’, by which everyone else in the world – Europeans, Arabs and Jews included – is responsible for Africans’ misfortune.

What ‘Wiley’ fails to recognise is that in this ‘victim game’, one set of people (not blacks) will always hold the ultimate trump card. He has entered an auction that he can’t win, but where he will nevertheless have to pay.

‘Grime artist’ Wiley is in trouble for ‘antisemitism’.

Unlike Tom Pope, it seems that there is a prima facie case against ‘Wiley’ under Britain’s race laws, and police are investigating. The Zionist lobby group Campaign Against Antisemitism (who were behind the prosecution and jailing of London Forum founder Jez Turner) are petitioning the government to withdraw the rapper’s MBE, and he has been dropped by his management company.

Needless to say, even this is not enough. Leading Zionist campaigners including Jewish Chronicle editor Stephen Pollard are staging a 48-hour boycott of Twitter this week, writing: “You refuse to act against Jew hate. You enable the likes of @WileyCEO to spread their poison.” The Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis also joined the Twitter boycott.

Even the Home Office and the Prime Minister’s office have joined in the kvetching, with Downing Street spokesmen saying this afternoon that social media companies must “go much further and faster in removing hateful content”.

And here of course is the real issue. While mainstream conservative parties on both sides of the Atlantic depend heavily on Facebook (in particular) to manipulate voters’ minds – including playing subtle games with racial politics – they are determined to censor anyone using social media to ask radical questions. Hence they seize on the likes of Tom Pope and ‘Wiley’, so as to justify a broader purge.

Generation Identity targeted in latest Twitter purge

The international ‘Alt Right’ group Generation Identity – which grew eight years ago out of the French Bloc Identitaire and its Scandinavian allies but now has branches in many White countries – has been targeted in the latest social media purge.

During the last 24 hours accounts belonging to several GI linked groups have been banned from Twitter, as has GI’s highest-profile leader Martin Sellner. NBC News claims that around fifty accounts have been removed following a hostile report by an ‘anti-racist’ group.

So far Mr Sellner’s American wife Brittany (née Pettibone) has escaped the purge, but is likely to be caught in a further wave of expulsions from Twitter during the next few days.

Defenders of European values – ranging from the ‘non-racist’ ‘Alt Lite’, through varying shades of civic nationalist, identitarian, Islam-obsessed, racially conscious and fully racial nationalist – have been removed from social media channels (notably YouTube, Twitter and most recently Facebook) at different stages during the past year.

(Generation Identity was analysed in H&D Issue 83 by Tony Paulsen.)
