Berlin (AP) -- German prosecutors have charged the former attorney for far-right activist Ernst Zundel with encitement. They accuse her of denying the Holocaust occurred and ending one of her legal filings with the words, "Heil Hitler."
Zundel lived in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, between 2001 and 2003, when he was deported to Canada for alleged immigration violations. Canada later sent him back to Germany.
Zundel has operated Samisdat Publishing, a leading distributor of Nazi propaganda, since the 1970s. Over the past decade, he has been a key content provider for a web site dedicated to Holocaust denial.
The second trial of the 67-year-old Zundel ended last month with his conviction for incitement in denying the Holocaust. He was sentenced to the maximum five years in prison.
Attorney Sylvia Stolz represented Zundel in his first trial, which collapsed after Stolz was banned from proceedings on grounds she was trying to sabotage them.
Stolz does not deny making the statements or writing "Heil Hitler" on the document.
