Alison Chabloz, a Holocaust denier who wrote songs mocking the Holocaust, has been jailed after anti-Semitic comments she made about Jewish people.
Chabloz, 57, of St John’s Wood, was found guilty of a communications offence on Wednesday and was handed an eighteen-week prison sentence, of which she will serve nine weeks behind bars.
Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard how Chabloz claimed on the social media network Gab that “anything that’s worth controlling will have Jews there controlling it” and accused Jews of turning their children into “psychopathic maniacs”, the Jewish News reports.
She also stated that Jews were persecuted in Nazi Germany because they “had been behaving in a certain fashion, as we’re seeing again today”, and that some Jews should be deported.
This is not the first time Chabloz has had a run-in with the law regarding her views on Jews and the Holocaust. In 2016, Chabloz wrote songs that denied and mocked the Holocaust among with writing other blog posts that were anti-Jewish.
One song included the lyrics: “Did the Holocaust ever happen? Was it just a bunch of lies? Seems that some intend to pull the wool over our eyes. Eternal wandering liars haven’t got a clue, and when it comes to usury, victim’s always me and you.”
In 2019, Chabloz was convicted of a similar crime regarding her anti-Semitism. She was then sentenced to eight weeks in prison and fined £170.
On her latest conviction, Stephen Silverman of Campaign Against Antisemitism said: “Alison Chabloz’s repulsive opinions about Jews can be traced back to the beer halls of 1930s Germany.
“Despite already having been convicted of similar offences, she continued, while serving her suspended sentence, to use the internet to attempt to radicalise others and convert them to her hateful way of thinking about Jewish people.
“Today’s verdict and sentence finally give the Jewish community justice and protection from someone who has made a vocation out of denying the Holocaust and baiting Jews.
“It also sends a clear message to those who might be tempted to go down the same path.”
Sadly, Alison Chabloz is not alone in her denial of the Holocaust and numbers are likely to increase as knowledge of the Holocaust is lowering as we move further away from when it happened. As such, we must remind future generations of the atrocities that took place during this dark time in history.
