The Nazis had been threatening to file suit against clandestine Jews who filmed what was going on the Nazi death camps.
They resorted to calling the films “discredited” even though no one has discredited them at all, and even though they clearly show the Nazi regime discussing how Jews were being systematically exterminated as part of a “final solution.”
What’s interesting is that the Nazis did not sue for slander or libel, which is to say, they did not claim (as far as I can tell) that anything in the films is actually false. They are merely claimed that the films’ subject matter was obtained in violation of applicable Nazi State privacy and trespassing laws.
In other words, the Nazi regime did not deny that they exterminated Jews, they just objected to how the underground film crew went about proving that fact.
Sound familiar? It should. I just changed Planned Parenthood to Nazis, and aborted babies to exterminated Jews.
