Neo-Nazi Holocaust Denier Jailed for Anti-Semitism by French Court
September 22, 2020
Last Friday, a French court jailed anti-Semitic activist Hervé Lalin, who also goes by Hervé Ryssen, for two posts on the internet that defamed the Jewish people and one that denied the Holocaust, according to The Algemeiner.
In 2018, Lalin released a YouTube video entitled “The Jews, Incest, and Hysteria.” Also in 2018, Lalin published an online book titled “Anti-Semitism Without Complexity or Taboo” which denied the Nazi Holocaust—a criminal offense in France.
Lalin has been sent to prison for anti-Semitic acts before. In 2016, he was sentenced to five months in jail due to the content of numerous passages in his book “Understand Judaism- Understand Anti-Semitism”.
The offender has now begun a 17-month jail sentence at the Fleury-Mérogis prison near Paris.
