Holocaust denier sent to see for himself

An unemployed computer technician named as György N. has become Hungary’s first convicted Holocaust denier after a court sentenced him to an 18-month suspended jail sentence. He was also ordered to visit Budapest’s Holocaust Memorial Centre, Israel’s Yad Vashem Centre or the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, and to report in writing about the thoughts and observations inspired by his visit.
