A defense lawyer for a far-right activist charged with denying the Holocaust was physically carried from a German courtroom Wednesday after defying a ruling banning her from the trial on grounds that she tried to sabotage the proceedings. Two female police officers had to carry Sylvia Stolz from the Mannheim courtroom after she refused to leave upon the judge's order. "Resistance! The German people are rising up," Stolz shouted as she was taken from the room. Some of the scores of supporters of Ernst Zundel, a 66-year-old German deported from Canada, also left the courtroom. Zundel, who has also lived in the US state of Tennessee, has been standing trial since November on incitement charges for years of alleged anti-Semitic activities including denying the Holocaust - a crime in Germany - in documents and on the Internet.
