BERLIN (AP) -- A well-known German neo-Nazi has been convicted again of Holocaust denial and sentenced to prison, but is showing no signs of changing her views.

Ursula Haverbeck in her closing statement in Verden district court Monday talked of the "Auschwitz lie" and said the infamous death camp was actually a labor camp where nobody was killed by gas, the dpa news agency reported.

She'd been charged with Holocaust denial, a crime in Germany, for the content of several articles she wrote for a magazine called the Voice of the Reich.

Haverbeck, 88, said she'd appeal her conviction and 2 year sentence.

She's currently free as she appeals other convictions from courts in Detmold and Lueneburg.
