German Ursula Haverbeck, 88, was sentenced on Monday to six months in prison for denying the Holocaust and the existence of gas chambers in the Nazi death camp of Auschwitz.

The well-known German Nazi has been convicted of Holocaust denial on multiple occasions, though she has not previously served jail time as the cases are under appeal.

The Prosecutor’s Office accused her for her speech at an event organized in January 2016 at a Berlin site where she repeatedly stated that the Holocaust had not existed.

Haverbeck is also facing a two-year jail sentence without parole, after a court in Verden, Lower Saxony found her guilty of Holocaust denial in August.

Holocaust denial is illegal in Germany.

She is scheduled to go on trial in the western German town of Detmold for the third time, after twice being convicted of incitement to hatred there for denying a genocide of the Jews during World War II.

German media call her the “Nazi grandma,” according to DW.
