A 53-year-old British woman was convicted in court on Friday on hate crimes charges related to three antisemitic music videos she posted on Facebook in 2016, The Daily Mail reported.

Alison Chabloz — a self-described “Holocaust revisionist” — was found guilty of three counts of “improper use of a public electronic communications network” by publishing “grossly offensive, indecent or obscene” content.

Chabloz will be sentenced next month.

In her songs, Chabloz called the Holocaust the “Holohoax,” referred to Auschwitz as a “theme park,” mocked Holocaust survivors Irene Zisblatt and the late Elie Wiesel, and challenged the validity of Anne Frank’s diary.

Gideon Falter — chairman of the UK-based Campaign Against Antisemitism — said: “Alison Chabloz has dedicated herself over the course of years to inciting others to hate Jews, principally by claiming that the Holocaust was a hoax perpetrated by Jews to defraud the world. She is now a convicted criminal. This verdict sends a strong message that in Britain Holocaust denial and antisemitic conspiracy theories will not be tolerated.”

According to The Daily Mail, Chabloz has been disowned by her parents and children.
