I have now placed on Adelaide Institute’s website my book

Where Truth Is No Defence I Want To Break Free.

The legal wheels turn slowly and so for those who have not been inside a prison, I offer my prison diary, which will give you an impression of what Ernst is going through as the German prosecutor prepares the case against him.

The important thing to remember is that Ernst does not fear prison because he has no Laster – vices or addictions to worry about, except for food, but that vice afflicts us all.

Also, as some of you who have been inside know, if you are gifted in any way, if you have an accomplishment such as playing a musical instrument, have a singing voice, are an artist – as Ernst is, then inmates will like you because your artistic spirit lifts them out of their own gloom and doom, thereby deflecting from scapegoating upon one another.

But that only works if the prison administration is interested in keeping a calm and quiet prison, and not interested in causing the prison population to turn upon itself in gang-wars, etc.

During my time at Mannheim Prison, the administration was set on retaining a certain civilized standard as reflected in the choice of its personnel.

There was no outright thuggery against individuals, though if you were in for paedophilia you were given a hard time – but again there was an exception to the rule where a man accused of such was actually tolerated by the inmates. My being inside was treated as a bad joke because most inmates could not understand what I had done wrong – except my refusing to believe in the ‘Holocaust’.

So, there are other factors that come into play when considering what makes prison life bearable.

A lot depends on one’s character. If you attended boarding school – where you learned to survive and shared things with others you necessarily didn’t like, and if you completed basic military service, then this step into prison regimentation is not too difficult.

You need to see things optimistically, for example, you do not have to worry about feeding yourself. Then your washing is done for you – and if you have someone from outside providing you with some luxuries such as a little money for the prison ‘supermarket’ and for a television and radio, then all you need do is cope with the terrible loneliness that will afflict you now and again when you think of the loved ones that you have left behind.

It does not help to suicide because that helps the criminals who put the Revisionist behind bars in the first place. Don’t suppress the thought of it but don’t act on it – and overcome it by realizing that your death will come in its own time. There is no need to hurry it along.

Also, just stop feeling sorry for yourself, that you are limited in your personal movements. I thought of our Associate, Peter Rackemann, who is a quadriplegic – I considered myself lucky that my legs are still holding out, and that I could walk in these limited surroundings. We had a prisoner who had no arms and needed another prisoner who would look after him. And if you are the sporty kind, then there is the prison gym where you can work off your energy – instead of letting your passions overflow into overt sexual behaviour.

Young prisoners have a harder time because for the older ones the basic sex drive is not so urgent anymore. Still, it helps to write letters, and anyone who has received those now famous pencilled notes from Ernst knows that he is writing from his soul.

So, keeping one’s body and mind fit and healthy through modest exercise seems to get most individuals through the time spent in prison. In other words, basic socialising skills and basic self-sufficiency feelings will get you through the day – and that is the important thing, that one takes things from day to day; well, not quite – first it is every second, then minutes, then hours, then days, then weeks, then months, then years.

Above all, do not fear prison, and here we must celebrate Horst Mahler who, to my knowledge for the first time in Revisionist history, publicly enabled a situation where about 100 individuals farewelled Günter Kögel on his way into prison – celebrating him as a German patriot about to commence his prisoner-of-war sentence.

This is how the matter should be viewed – because in Germany, and in any country where ‘Holocaust’ laws exist to silence those who refuse to believe in this dogma, it is a war against Revisionists and against the truth concept. This, of course, I view with utmost concern because the truth concept is the foundation upon which our civilization rests. Take it away and our bridges and buildings will tumble down.

On Adelaide Institute’s front page you will note addresses of some of the more recent POWs/freedom fighters who would appreciate receiving from you a letter or a post card.
