Helga Zepp-LaRouche (born August 25, 1948 in Trier ) is the German party leader of the civil rights movement Solidarity .


Helga Zepp studied political science , history and philosophy at the Otto Suhr Institute of the Free University of Berlin and at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main .

Helga Zepp has been politically active since the 1970s. She soon joined the LaRouche movement , whose head Lyndon LaRouche (1922-2019) she married on December 29, 1977 in Wiesbaden . Since then she has run unsuccessfully in many elections: first for the European Workers' Party (EAP), then for the Patriots for Germany , then for the successor party civil rights movement Solidarity (BüSo), which she founded and of which she is federal chairman. In 1996, the then federal government designated the predecessor party of the BüSo, the European Workers' Party, as a political sect in a response to a small request from members of the CDU / CSU and FDP . This view is also shared by dropouts. Zepp-LaRouche is also the founder and chairwoman of the Schiller Institute , an organization of the LaRouche movement.

In June 2007, the federal government responded to a small question :

“In the past, the Zepp-LaRouche couple have been founded through a large number of parties and associations. Ä. emerged. The 'civil rights movement Solidarity' (BüSo), Wiesbaden, is the youngest party to be founded. Earlier foundings were the 'Schiller Institute - Vereinigung für Staatskunst e.V.' founded by Helga Zepp-LaRouche in Laatzen near Hanover (Lower Saxony). V. ', the' European Workers 'Party' (EAP), Wiesbaden, and the 'Patriots for Germany', Mainz. In addition, there are or have been numerous other institutions such as the Executive Intelligence Review (EIR), the Anti-Drug Coalition and the Club of Life, all of them Wiesbaden. In the journalistic area, the weekly 'New Solidarity', which is published by Dr. Böttiger Verlags GmbH, Wiesbaden, is published. "

In the state elections in Hesse in 1983 , she ran for the EAP in the constituency of Frankfurt am Main II . In the Bundestag election in 2005 , she ran for the civil rights movement Solidarity in the Leipzig I constituency . In the 2009 Bundestag election she appeared as her party's “ candidate for Chancellor ”.

Controversial viewpoints

In 1979, the chairwoman of Büso Zepp-LaRouche saw the USA and the Federal Republic under the influence of a "covertly operating Zionist lobby":

“While nobody in the USA has the slightest illusions about the power of the Zionist lobby over the current administration in particular, the influence of a covertly operating Zionist lobby in the Federal Republic is so far only known to a few initiated political figures, but not to the general public. And that's why we have to use the hypocritical Holocaust hoax as an opportunity to get these foreign agents exposed. "

According to the European Workers' Party, which was then led by Helga Zepp-LaRouche, the quote comes from a review of the television series Holocaust - The Story of the Weiss Family, which was broadcast in Germany in January 1979 and, according to Zepp-LaRouche, does not refer to this film but on the Jewish extermination programs of the Third Reich. In explaining the reasons for the decision in the legal dispute between the European Workers' Party against Westdeutscher Rundfunk before the Cologne Higher Regional Court (judgment of June 25, 1985, Az .: 15 U 137/84), the court refers to passages from this article.

In the magazine 'Executive Intelligence Review', Zepp-LaRouche takes a stand against numerous German organizations such as the World Association for the Protection of Life and the Bündnis 90 / Die Grünen party , whose origins she connects with the ideology of National Socialism .
