Wimmera Mail-Times, 13 January 2010
Controversial Wimmera writer Fredrick Töben is planning a trip to America to launch his latest book, 50 Days in Gaol. He aims to launch the book in Washington at the beginning of February, but he must first renew his American visa.
Because of his imprisonment in South Australia for three months last year on contempt of court charges, he has had to obtain a national police certificate for the visa application. If he gains a visa and flies to America, he will risk arrest by German authorities again. He is willing to run the risk.
“I am doing it on purpose,” he said. “I am not a criminal, but the world is my prison.” Germany has an arrest warrant out for him under section 130 of its penal code – forbidding people from denying the Holocaust.
Dr Töben captured world headlines in 2008 when he was pulled off a plane at Heathrow Airport, London, and held in jail while Germany tried to extradite him. His new book, printed last week and yet to be launched, details his SWAT-style arrest on Flight AA98, his legal battle to avoid extradition, his 50 days in prison and the swirl of manoeuvring, polemics and drama surrounding the case.
Sub-titled Dr Fredrick Töben’s Global Battle for Free Speech, the book includes a lengthy foreword by Gerard Menuhin, son of famous violinist Yehudi Menuhin.
Dr Töben has now spent time in five prisons – all for his belief in free speech, particularly relating to his views on the Holocaust – Mannheim, Germany, in 1999, Wandsworth and Bedford prisons in England in 2008, and Yatala Labour Prison and Cadell Training Centre in South Australia last year.
During his time in Yatala and Cadell, the 65-year-old former Goroke teacher lost 13 kilograms. He spent a considerable part of his time cleaning and painting. “I was ‘poster boy’ in the prison’s newsletter, the Cadell Courier, in November,” he said. “I almost single-handedly cleaned it up – like a good German. [At Yatala] My punishment was cleaning my cell. But it wasn’t punishment because cleanliness is a godly virtue. “As a teacher I never gave yard duty [as a form of punishment] because it gave the wrong message that a cleaner was not worth much.”
He said [some] people in prison were forgotten by the system. Many were not well educated , without good social connections. About 80 per cent were in for drug-related offences, and received ‘liquid handcuffs’ – methadone for their addiction. He believed drugs should be legalised, under strict controls, to minimise their destructive repercussions.
Dr Töben is now working on his next book, provocatively titled Arbeit Macht Frei – ‘work makes you free’, the message over the entrance to Auschwitz.

It is my moral, social and legal duty to proclaim the Holocaust-Shoah
is a massive lie that distorts our understanding of world history/human nature/Weltanschauung
How can TRUTH
TRUTH is TRUTH!
There is always MORAL EQUIVALENCY
because human action is universal!

................Wherever we turn in our daily comings and goings
there is some issue demanding our attention – this way or that way, this
thing or that thing, or become directionless and flow with the stream, or opt
out and shut up and remain silent while your inner life explodes with anger
and self-destructive impulses that urge you to end your pain and confusion and
desperation and exhaustion NOW!
In Australia’s voluntary society it is a virtue to volunteer
rather than to agitate for reform, better to go shopping than to attack the
banking system that enables our dreams to be fulfilled at a price –
financial enslavement to international predatory capitalism.
Self-destruction is sanctioned and encouraged because Common Law
principles deem it a personal responsibility to save oneself from harm. A
citizen does not have the legal duty to save, for example, a drowning person,
but the moral duty would activate altruistic impulses in a person who thinks
saving someone’s life is a moral virtue.
It is my moral, social, and legal duty to proclaim that the
Jewish Holocaust-Shoah is built on lies of such huge proportions that one
finds it difficult to understand how this massive lie has survived for over
And now let’s enter the world of South Australia’s penal system..........
my submission the effect of the orders is extreme and brings the appellant
into a position where he is in effect living in an absolutist society.
He is unable to express views which he, for better or worse, has about
events which are matters of public importance.”- Barrister David Perkins
“A regime in which a person is prevented from saying what he or she thinks about matters of public importance is a totalitarian regime.” Barrister David Perkins
- read Fredrick Töben's comment at No 523,
then remember that the American Skeptics have a category 'Holocaust denial', which Michael Shermer propagated, and which Australia's Skeptics have done as well, especially here in Adelaide.
Now Prof Myers has labelled the daddy of world scepticism, James Randi, a Climate Change Denier .

- will Brendon O'Connell's 2010 court case in Perth, Western Australia, contribute towards its downfall?
Mannheim Prison 8 April - 11 November 1999
If you defend yourself in a German court with facts that in any way cast doubt on the
official Holocaust narrative, or disprove claims of 6million killed, the systematic
extermination process and existence of homicidal gas chambers, then such
utterances in court - protected in Common Law courts by
absolute privilege - will give rise to another charge.
On 3 April 19987 German Lawyer Ludwig Bock defended too vigorously
his client, Günter Deckert, thereby diminishing the Holocaust,
so the Public Prosecutor who charged Bock in court.
In March 1999 the Landgericht Mannheim fined Bock DM9,000,
and on 6 April 2000 the Bundesgerichtshof, Karlsruhe, rejected his appeal
and confirmed the fine. Essentially Bock stated it is political interests that
prevent the historical truth about Auschwitz from emerging and that the court
refuses to open itself to scientific research results.

With Kant I share a basic Weltanschauung-worldview:
First it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
