The World : 'Hate Law' Violator Jailed

A West German was sentenced in Toronto to 15 months in jail for publishing anti-Jewish propaganda in a booklet claiming that accounts of the Nazi Holocaust are a hoax. Ernst Zundel, 46, who had been free on bail since being convicted Feb. 28 of violating Canada's so-called hate law, was also placed on three years' probation and prohibited from publishing anything during that time about the Holocaust. Zundel, who has lived in Canada since 1958, claimed in his booklet that accounts of the Nazi attempt to exterminate Europe's Jews were really a Zionist conspiracy designed to extract reparations from Germany.
