Germany arrested a Holocaust denier after he was deported from Canada. Ernst Zundel, 65, who had lived in Canada more than 40 years, was sent to Germany on Tuesday. During his stay in Canada, Zundel gained a reputation as one of the world’s foremost Holocaust deniers. He moved to the United States in 2000 but was deported back to Canada in 2003 on a legal technicality. He had been held in a Toronto detention center ever since.
Jewish groups applauded the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to outlaw the juvenile death penalty. “As our nation grows ever more aware of the flaws inherent in capital punishment, we applaud the Supreme Court for its moral stand against this application of the death penalty,” Jane Wishner, chair of the Reform movement’s Commission on Social Action, said in a statement on Tuesday’s decision. The American Jewish Committee also hailed the decision.
