Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel dead at age 78

German authorities say far-right activist Ernst Zundel, deported from Canada on Holocaust denial charges, has died.  

He was 78

Zundel emigrated to Canada in 1958 and lived in Toronto and Montreal

HE was extradited to Germany in 2005 and served a five-year prison for inciting hatred.

Zundel was famously convicted in 1985 for “knowingly publishing false news,” after he published a brochure called "Did Six Million Really Die?”

The conviction was overturned and later deemed unconstitutional by the Supreme Court of Canada.
