Germany: Hezbollah-supporter and Holocaust-denier invited to speak at former concentration camp

German journalist Christoph Hörstel, a zealous supporter of Iran’s regime and Hezbollah and an alleged denier of the Holocaust, was invited to an event at the former Sachsenhausen concentration camp to commemorate the July 20, 1944, attempt to assassinate Hitler by German officers.

German author Tilman Tarach reported on Friday about the slated event on the website of the Berlin-based Jungle World weekly, causing organizers of the Sachsenhausen memorial to cancel Hörstel’s appearance the same day. 
According to telephone information from Sachsenhausen conveyed to Tarach, Hörstel’s appearance was planned as a side event and was not intended as participation in the July 20 commemoration.
