Norman Lowell, the firebrand right-winger, Imperium Europa leader and MEP candidate who famously referred to himself as a “racialist, not a racist”, has explained his views on the Holocaust after comparing the World War Two concentration camp Auschwitz to the ‘Disneyland of Poland’.
When asked by Lovin Malta whether he denied the Holocaust happened, he said: “How can one deny something that never happened? …This whole hoax is the biggest lie since the Virgin Mary.”

“The Holocaust never happened,” Norman Lowell continued. “Only some 70,000 Jews died in Auschwitz according to the Russian figures and backed by the Red Cross who had free access to the camps. These casualties died of typhus, dysentery and starvation since the allies had bombed all the rail-tracks leading to the camps – so the Germans just couldn’t feed them.”
The Holocaust refers to the systematic genocide committed by Nazi Germany under Adolf Hitler that murdered around six million European Jews between 1941 and 1945.
The Auschwitz concentration camp, which was built in conquered Poland, is considered an especially egregious example of the horrors of Nazi Germany, with over a million people exterminated within its prison walls through forced labour, starvation, infectious diseases, murder, or being forced into a gas chamber.
Lowell continued to say that the Jewish population in Europe increased following WW2
“Moreover, the Jewish population within the whole of Europe, including the unoccupied territories, stood at four million Jews, according to the Jewish Almanac in 1947,” he said. “The Jewish population actually increased by 1947! How can a population that suffered six million dead increase in just two years? This whole hoax is the biggest lie since the Virgin Mary.”
As of this week, Norman Lowell’s Imperium Europa is sitting as the third most popular political party, ahead of Partit Demokrtiku and Alternattiva Demokratika, in this month’s MEP elections.
Martin Cauchi Inglott, a PD candidate and former Commander of the AFM’s Maritime Squadron, has called out Lowell’s comments on Auschwitz
“One would have thought Lowell could not stoop any lower, but now he mocks Auschwitz Concentration Camp, calling it Poland’s Disneyland, and the holocaust a bunch of lies,” Cauchi Inglott said.
“Auschwitz remains a living pain to decent people,” he said. “More than six million dead deserve better. Lest we become complacent thinking it cannot happen again. Lowell minced my words precisely because I wanted to send a clear message that our children need to be educated about where far right politics can lead mankind.”
