British media reported Wednesday that Alison Chabloz has been charged with “sending obscene material by public communication.” Alison posted songs on YouTube denying the Holocaust and mocking survivors .

She appeared to sing along with the three songs in question as they were played in a London court on the first day of her trial, media reported, and her followers in the gallery laughed and sang along too.

Lyrics were along the lines of “‘Was it just a bunch of lies? Seems that some intend to pull the wool over our eyes.” Figures she attacked in her song LS included Anne Frank, the young diarist who perished during the Holocaust; her father, Otto Frank; and Elie Wiesel, the late Holocaust memoirist and Nobel Peace Prize laureate. She accuses Jews of unscrupulous money lending practices and she calls Auschwitz, the death camp, a “theme park for fools.”

The BBC quoted prosecutor Karen Robinson as saying that line “is an extraordinarily offensive description of perhaps the most traumatic event in Jewish history”.

She is defending herself by citing speech freedoms.
