Letter to Arthur Topham from Political Prisoner Monika Schaefer (Canadian held since January 3, 2018 in German Maximum Security Prison)

Letter to Arthur Topham from Political Prisoner Monika Schaefer (Canadian held since January 3, 2018 in German Maximum Security Prison)
 
Today is DAY 40 of Monika Schaefer’s loss of freedom. 
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO HELP GAIN HER RELEASE?
 
 
Dear Reader & Supporter of Free Speech,
 
On Friday, February 9, 2018 Radical Press received a long-awaited letter from Monika Schaefer who has been held in a German prison in Munich since January 3, 2018. At the time of writing her letter (Jan. 25) Monika had still not been allowed to receive visits from her family. It is my understanding that this has now changed and her brother Alfred’s wife has been to see her on more than one occasion.
 
As one can see from reading her letter Monika is in good spirits and appears to be coping well with her unjust loss of freedom. A great measure of her positive mental state appears to be the result of all the letters and cards that she’s been receiving. It’s hoped that readers will continue to write to Monika and send words of encouragement and love.

A note regarding the poster/graphic above. It would be deeply appreciated if those who have websites or blogs could post the image on their sites or on Facebook. This will help to spread the word about not only Monika but also the other three marvellous women who are sacrificing so much for the sake of Truth and Historical Revisionism. Search engines like Google, etc. pick up these posters and when people search on the net they show up as constant reminders that we are living in very dangerous times and our freedom of speech is quickly evaporating like morning dew in the desert. I’m also enclosing a pdf of this poster below for those who can utilize it for specified purposes.
 
We need to keep the plight of these courageous women at the forefront of our efforts and try to draw their plight to the attention of more and more truth seekers.
 
Mehr Licht!

Monika Schaefer’s Letter to the Radical Press
Received Friday, February 9, 2018
Letter #1
25. January 2018
 
Dear Arthur and Shasta,
 
Words can hardly describe the joy I felt upon receiving your letter of January 8th, and the wonderful picture/graphic that you created. My heart pretty near burst right out of my rib cage. Thank you Arthur for all you are doing – I have seen from other correspondences that you put together a good list of contacts for people to write letters to, and that kind of thing.
 
For 21/2 weeks I heard nothing from the outside world, and then suddenly the flood of letters started arriving. Oh my goodness, I was in pretty good spirits before (all things considered), but receiving these letters REALLY lifted my spirits.
 
Life for me has simplified, in terms of day-to-day. My biggest concerns in the first while were about all the logistical stuff on the home front. I haven’t been permitted a phone call yet, nor a visit, and I have no idea if any of my letters to my brother have gone through, so of course those logistical concerns just stressed me out for awhile. But basically I just resigned myself to having faith that my friends and family would take care of things.
 
. . . As I mentioned, life has suddenly become quite simple. Time expands and shrinks simultaneously. I could write books already about the interesting experiences in prison, and it seems like a long long time ago when they locked me up. On the other hand, the days flow one into the next very quickly, as the simple punctuations of daily life go round and round. I am keeping healthy and well, in mind, body, spirit and heart & soul. It is wonderful to know that Truth and Light, and indeed God, is with me. I know that.
 
During my last free night at Alfred’s, I had a remarkable dream, in which I was walking in a circle, with a bunch of other people, all walking rather slowly, heads slightly bowed forward, kind of shuffling along. Going counterclockwise. After my first full day here, I bolted upright in bed and gasped, as I realized that what I had seen in my dream (3 days earlier) was the daily hour outside in the courtyard, the “Hofgang”. The circular walk in the dream was the same general size as the courtyard here, and people walk round and round counterclockwise. That was not the first time in my life that I was shown something in a dream. But it has been rare.
 
I can assure you, about that “Hofgang”, that my head is not bowed, and I am NOT shuffling along. I either go vigorously, or sometimes a few of us play ping pong or volleyball. We have a lot of laughs and good moments. 
 
I’m in a cell with 4 others. We have our moments, sometimes difficult, but mostly okay, and sometimes good conversations. Sleep is sometimes hard to come by as we have one vigorous snorer. Earplugs don’t work so well – Oh well – This time shall pass.
 
I pray that you are both well.
 
Mehr Licht!     
 
… and much Love to you!
 
Monika


 
 

 

Our Letters Are Reaching Political Prisoner Monika Schaefer

Our Letters Are Reaching Political Prisoner Monika Schaefer
 
People are beginning to receive letters from political prisoner Monika Schaefer, arrested, January 3, and held in a maximum security prison, apparently for her video, Sorry, Mom, I Was Wrong About the Holocaust.
 
She has received about two thirds of her mail, the prison authorities told her. The rest is being held because it violates Sec. 130 of the German Criminal Code, which essentially enforces the New Religion of Holocaust and forbids any questioning of the Hollywood version of World War II. Thus, it is important in writing to Monika not to talk about the so-called holocaust or Jews. Letters should be newsy or personal or supportive. 
 
Monika is in good spirits and is bouyed by the outpouring of concern and support. He sister-in-law has visited her several times. She is allowed out for an hour a day`s exercise. Here are two reports of recent letters from Monika.
_____________________
From British activist Richard Edmonds
Today (February 5) I received a very friendly letter from Monika. Also my friend Milton Ellis who lives in Wales, U.K. received a letter from Monika this morning.

In her letter, dated the 20th. January (and date-stamped the 2. February, Munich), she says that on the 19th. January  she was given a lot of letters; these were the first letters handed over, till then she had heard nothing from anybody apart from a visit by the Canadian consul. She writes that she has now received many letters of support; and the prison  authorities tell her that there are many more that they can give her. But they have also informed her that one third of all the mail addressed to her cannot be handed over and Monika suspects because the contents are contrary to Section 130 of the Basic Law (the German Race Law).

Monika says how the letters of support induce positive energy into her. From Britain she also received a card from a group of British Friends; this card was posted on the day that Alison Ch. had her most recent court appearance (10. Jan.). Monika asks that I pass on thanks to all those whose names on the card she recognises (and I have e-mail addresses for): Monika gives a special hug for Alison, “I cherish the memory of playing together with her”,  also to Stead, James T. Adrian, Paul, Melinda Peter Phillips and to two or three others with unclear names.

Monika concludes : I thank all those who have written to me. It has cheered my heart tremendously.

 


 
And from Monika`s brother Alfred:
 
Dear all,

Today I got  phone call from a woman who has just come out of this prison and was Monika’s room mate. Also, my wife had seen Monika last Wednesday, and will see her again tomorrow.

Monika is in strong spirit, she is unbowed, and she is more concerned about our well being in this struggle than she is about her own forced absence from the struggle. — Alfred
